    I'm here to Bump this and add that Havant to Brighton would be a sensible route length.
    Class 377 and 313 will date it to the early 2010s. Both of these trains are already in the game. The journey takes around an hour on a stopping service and is very scenic.

    I think there is more of a chance that DTG would make the East Coastway line. Having done some of the groundwork in the TSW Brighton-Eastbourne route it could be a possibility.
    Some might argue that it would be a conflict of interest having the route on both TSxx & TSW platforms but who knows, if DTG saw a profit in it....

    They didn't seem to mind with the entire GWML/GWR Module

    Doh! Forgot about that, so there is some chance.
