    At the moment, when viewing a moving train from outside the cab on TSW, they don’t look very realistic.

    I think the main reason for this is that there is no shake, rattle or roll. In other words, there is no movement in the body of the train.

    If you watch real life trains, you can see the coaches sway, roll and bounce as they go over uneven rails etc and the whole train behaves flexibly as each part is on a different part of the rails.

    Adding this level of detail to the trains movement would significantly enhance the realism and I hope this is a feature you might wish to consider including in the game.

    There is cab sway whilst inside the train, but I haven’t noticed it when viewing the train outside the cab.

    If you look closely there is
    I guess they just need to make it more visible outside the cab

    All things considered, as far as I'm concerned there is no sway when your not in the cab or when riding a train as a passenger. It doesn't seem as though there Is sway, if there is it's rather insignificant.

    I agree, there is very little movement seen from outside the train and also when you ride as a passenger. In real life I like to look through to the carriage in front to see all the ways it moves in relation to the carriage I’m in. There is movement in every direction and there is bouncing about, and if you can see through to further carriages, the way they snake along as you reach a bend, adds to the fun to a journey and can be quite mesmerising. Riding as a passenger in TSW is very rigid. There is no sway like there is in the driver’s seat and the motion between the carriages is limited to very smooth side to side movement. It’s very unreal. I don’t think I’ve seen any movement of wagons or carriages from outside like you say either, just a little with the locos. Adding more realistic movement would be most welcome.

    I love watching the other carriages jiggle about too. Definitely part of the fun being on a train.

    Especially on the underground since you can see clearly the other carriage

    It would be nice if they include this on the bakerloo line as well as all the squeaks and squeals from the wheels
