    Wonderful proposal. It is certainly the most famous section of track in Japan. I would say almost all train fans have seen a photo of a Shinkansen from that stretch of track with clear views of Mt Fuji.

    Some people might say that the length is too long based on the current route lengths in TSW, but DTG has said the main limiting factor in route length is the time it takes to model high detail locations such as the stations and/or yards along a route. So the more stations/yards that will mean a shorter possible route length, based on time invested vs monetary return. This route only has a few stations so therefore the route length can be longer without having to split it up. I think the length of this proposal is achievable.
