    In anticipation of the next Train Sim World 2020 route hopefully being a modern (2010 upwards) passenger-focused route, here's what I'd like to see Dovetail Games add to make the game more realistic.


    Track Maintenance
    • Speed restrictions when approaching an area where track maintenance teams are working
    • Prompts to use the horn to warn workers when you/the train is approaching
    • New assets such as lineside maintenance equipment, workers in high-visibility clothing and construction noises
    • Line switching
    Delays & Late-Running Services
    • More frequent signal changes
    • Red signals that cause delays/more of a challenge to get to stations on time
    • Scenarios & Timetable services that start late by default
    Other
    • Busier stations
    • Automatic and manually triggered in-train PSA messages ("The next station stop is...")
    • Random weather changes
    • Ability to use two-tone horn on PS4 and Xbox One controllers
    • Destination/dot-matrix displays
    • Working digital displays at stations
    • Station names shown on the map
    • Working GSM-R

    More chance of me winning the lottery and Keira Knightly asking me to marry her than seeing all that in the next UK route, or any next route release

    All those would be amazing but being realistic, I’d like to see busier stations (trains and passengers) & an updated 2D map.

    This stuff would have to be in individual scenarios, not service mode. Service Mode is meant for a perfect day without delays.

    But random delays could be added for sure.

    You can add any delay you want, but it will not be random. That same service will have the same delays every time.

    That much realism? "I'll only go as a tourist." Yet another "passenger-focused route?" No thanks!
