    This route looks great! :love::love::love:
    Rivet is certainly doing a good job.
    If they release it in perfect condition for consoles, which unfortunately they didn't do with Isle of Wight, I'll buy it on release day to enjoy it on my ps4.
    To be honest, I highly doubt they'll make the same mistake twice, because it tarnishes the huge effort that goes into building a route, and it's not a good situation for any company to be in.

    Must admit, the more I see of this route, the more my interest is piqued. Love those window shades in the passenger cars. One question: what is that ground texture? Looks like my garage floor!

    It's too perfect. Nobody pours concrete that smooth. It's also too clean, looks like you could eat lunch off of it.:D

    Switzerland is not as perfect as that, yes everything is generally clean and well maintained, here, but not everything is perfectly smooth and sparkly clean all the time.

    As the old joke goes, ‘Everything is so great in Switzerland, even the flags a plus ‘

    The modeling of the train and the loco is superb, nothing more to say!

    This route is very nice and is very well modeled, it’s a must have! Sadly, my wallet says the opposite.

    Soon the whole thread won’t be about the route but only about Switzerland;)

    71E19E0F-6339-4302-B50D-6CB861206F33.jpeg I thought this was interesting! From the other forum posts It seems like they are taking feedback seriously and have already fixed some things from the feedback they received.

    I thought the part about it slipping by DTG I thought was the interesting part. I’d be interested in seeing the guidelines for 3rd party developers or internally.

    I bet no one has seen it so far: The Arosa Line is in upcoming!
    Next to Hamburg-Lübeck which is a bit confusing cause I never realised it has been in production hahahaha
    And: The RailfanTV schedule is unfinished and not detailed so far, maybe we will see the first Arosa line livestream in the coming days? Would be awesome :D

    What is interesting is that Arosa now appears above Clinchfield- and, according to Sam, DLCs are listed in their anticipated order of release. So apparently all has been going smoothly at Rivet and it's coming together faster than expected.

    My bet for the launch: Thursday, March 26.
    I have hype for this route. Please Rivet Games, don't disappoint us! :)

    Third time posting this info. I’m really hoping it’s going to be released soon but most likely someone hit the wrong button...

    Still a slim chance it’ll magically appear very soon (high hopes)

    today’s update loaded up the Arosa Lines trophies (PS) in set 3.

    Sam just said in the roadmap stream that it will likely be in the 'next arrival' section on the next roadmap. So that would imply a maximum of 1 month before it releases.

    Just got an answer from Rivet on the passenger car video and... we might be able to lean out of those opening windows on Arosa as passengers... MIGHT! That would definitely add some cool element to that aspect of the game, so... here's hope!

    I can’t wait for the 18 certificate version of TSW, where you can lean out of the window and your head gets severed from your body by a passing train or a bridge. Blood splattered livery abounds......Sorry, I just had a moment there. I’m better now.

    Very cool, the landscape close to the tunnels looks marvelous. Also quite interesting to see the actual process of how a tunnel is made.

    According to Rivets newsletter the Arosa line will be released at March 25th!

    There will also be a preorder discount for PC (as usual), a preorder possibility on xbox (without discount) and a discount on PS at release.
