    So long as we have the routes to go with them... no point having old DMU or EMU units if we don't have the period routes.

    I think it would be fine if DTG made a WCML south route from Euston to Coventry set in the modern day and used stuff from the European Asset Pack for the AI trains in scenarios for the 310.

    Yes we need more of the older, proper trains, not the plastic types of today. Bring on the 4CORs and 4SUBs I say.

    As for backdated routes and more, look here. https://backdatedtrainsim.weebly.com/route-downloads.html

    And here. https://www.vulcanproductions.co.uk/

    Without wishing to hijack this thread I see that someone has voted No. I really fail to see the point of a No vote in this context, it's trolling. If people aren't interested in the proposed content then they should either ignore it or give a reason for their objection.

    I see another person has voted No to this proposal.
    Perhaps those who have voted no should air their views here as to why they object to these suggestions. Or are they just trolls?

    Back on topic, I like the look of the Swindon 123.

    So far DTG have made DMUs that can be used on the routes they make.
    Unless a route is available I don't see DTG making any others - however they did make the BR Class 402 - 2-Hal emu which was withdrawn well before the routes we have are set. so there is a possibility.

    Class 104 could be made for the Weardale and Teesdale route as these sets were based in the Newcastle area
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Rail_Class_104
    Class 115 could be made for the Liverpool to Manchester via Warrington Central route as the sets were common on the line before newer Pacer and Sprinter trains took over.

    A slight problem with setting a Euston to Coventry route (Why not Birmingham New St) is the Class 310 units were withdrawn in 2002 so a route set with Pendolinos and Voyagers would not look right with a 310

    Aside from the fact that any additional content is a good thing, these old 50s and 60s DMUs – for me – don't hold that much immediate interest. I actually initially read this thread thinking it was about TSW (I've already added a suggestion to better differentiate forum threads in the New Posts list), where we already have the 101 and plenty of dirty 50s BR stuff, but very little in the way of fresh, modern UK trains. The Trans Pennine and Tees Valley DLC for TSW are set in that grim period of British Rail history where everything was tired, dirty and in need of modernisation; the closest thing we have to a new British train is the GWE Class 166 (early 90s) and HST (70s) so in that context, I'd say no purely on the grounds that there are many other trains I'd rather see.

    Suggesting that people should only ever answer yes to a poll makes it a fairly pointless exercise - the no option allows you to see that some people might actually be less interested in the suggestion, rather than have those people ignoring the thread and assume 100% of people desperately want it. Would I like to see these trains in the game? Yes, sure, I'd like to see every train in the game. But would I want them to devote immediate resources to that which would otherwise be spent on something else? No.

    ^^ Points taken but a No vote suggests an emphatic No unless backed up with a reasoned response. As for the Yes vote reaching 100% then DTG could use figures gleaned from that to consider as to whether to make the content being proposed.

    Yes the BR blue period was grim but it was, (for me) more interesting; more infrastructure, the variety of locos and other stock. Modern railways don't interest me at all but I would never put a No vote to any proposal.

    Yeah but maybe it could use stuff from the Euro asset pack, include AI-only trains, or include the Class 86 and 87 in the pack.
