    I've collected some routes, that might be interesting to see in TSW2 and that are more or less in the range of route lengths, produced to this moment. I have also written down the rolling stock, safety systems, as well as arguments for and against the route. !There might be errors in the list!

    Please vote for your favorite. I would like to see the general interest in my suggestions because my preferred routes out of this list might vary largely to the ones of the community.

    If you have comments, questions or corrections to this list, feel free to comment down below.

    Comment on Biebermühlbahn (last entry):
    The Biebermühlbahn still seems quite historic, even in modern times, but this route should be built in a state as before 2005. This is given by the fact, that the mechanical signals were replaced in 2017 and that freight services were canceled on this line in 2005. I could not decide on a decade for this route, I would be pleased with steam trains in the 1920s as well as diesel trains in the 1950s or quite modern services in the early 2000s.

    San Fransico Cable Car:
    Country: USA
    Length: 17km
    Rolling Stock: Cable Car
    Safety system: none
    Possible addon: none

    Pro: Freight, Local and Intercity services; non-complex signaling system; same safety system as Sweden

    Country: Mexico
    Length: 24km
    Rolling Stock: FE-10
    Safety system: none
    Possible addon: none
    Pro: steel-wheeled trains (except line A and 12 all lines use rubber-wheeled trains), most modern line, good variety of stations

    Ah, you big spoilsport ;) You could have just kept that to yourself. I’m going to look them all up and vote on the poll. It might take me a while but some look interesting just from their descriptions.

    The San Fran cable car is certainly an interesting idea.
