Ah, the case of whether DB BR 101 will be usable in timetable mode on other German Routes in TSW. While I don't think there will be at release, I do hope that this can be added to other routes later down the line as this has massive potential to be used on many of the German routes currently in TSW. In fact, over the past few weeks, I've been going through all the German routes and seeing which of them this loco can be added to in service mode and I'm now going to list them down below. But first lets go through the routes that I don't think this can be added to. Rapid Transit Now IC services have been diverted down this line in the past, but the main problem with adding them to this route is that if you want to add 101 services to this route, you would have to do up the entirety of Leipzig HBF as you can't access the main station as it hasn't been done up fully (This is pretty much the case for adding any other passenger service such as ICE, RB & RE to this route). Ruhr-Sieg Nord There was a BR 101 that came as part of the original route that came on TS Classic many years ago, but I don't think it runs on this line anymore, and I don't think it even ran on this line to begin with (Correct me if I'm wrong). Main-Spessart Bahn Now it does run on this line, but there one problem. It doesn't stop anywhere along the route other than Aschaffenburg so the only way you could add this loco to this route is if the route was extended to Wurzburg which I don't think is going to happen any time soon. With that out of the way, onto the routes that I think have to potential to add this loco to service mode in the future. Rhein-Ruhr Osten Out of all the German routes in this game, I think this would be one of the most likely to get additional 101 services if they happen. This one would be pretty straightforward, there are two IC services that run on this route, IC's 31 & 55, they run once every two hours and would be a simple as in one end, out the other side, running non-stop all the way. Schnellfahrstrecke Köln-Aachen Now when this addon was in the 'in planning' stage, early roadmaps put this as the route this add-on was for, until it entered production in November when it was changed to the route it is now for, Hauptstrecke Rhein-Ruhr (and it was later admitted it was never meant for this route to begin with). However, this doesn't mean you can still add 101 services to this route. Even if it is just one or two services, it would still be worth adding services involving this loco to bring some more diversity in terms of locos available to drive in service mode on this route. Even if that doesn't happen, I've though of a really great way to utilise this add-on on this route, and it involves utilising another add-on that people really want to see have services on other routes, the DB BR 363. What you could have is IC coaches stored in the yard at Köln and you could get the 363 doing shunting services around the yard, preparing IC coaches to be taken out by BR 101's. This way, it would add more diversity of services to the timetable and Köln yard would look far more active and alive than it currently is now, which is empty and... ...dead. Hauptstrecke Hamburg – Lübeck The upcoming Hauptstrecke Hamburg – Lübeck does have IC services operated by 101's in real-life, even if it is 2 trains a day in each direction. This, like with Köln-Aachen, would still be worth adding to give this route more loco diversity as well as giving this route an express loco. There's a chance this could actually happen as it seems like now we are getting this first which opens door for this to maybe find it's way into this route. But again, lets wait and see for the first gameplay footage to see whether this is the case or not. Hauptstrecke München – Augsburg Now the big one, the route that I think everyone wants this loco in service mode the most as plenty of these do run along this line. But apparently we can't have this run on this route because we have no cab-car, so unless you top-n-tail two of them, there is no way this route will ever be getting this loco in service mode right??? Right????RIGHT??? Well, that may be the case at first, but allow me to say something I know half of this forum is going to be really angry at me for.... *Takes deep breath* There is a way you can add services involving this add-on to this route even if you don't have the cab-car, and I don't just mean by just simply top-n-tailing two of them. How may you ask? Well, I was thinking for adding 101 services to this route of doing something similar to what was done for the loco-hauled services in the recent Diesel Legends of the Great Western pack. In which, you start with one train at Augsburg that runs down to Munich, either non-stop or makes a stop at München-Pasing along the way. Then you could have several 101 stored in one of the yards around München (specifically, Bahnbetriebswerk München Hbf for what I was thinking) and when it's nearly time for an IC/EC service to depart, one would run out of yard, couple up to the back of the inbound IC service already at Munich Hbf, detach of the loco that took the train into Munich and then take the train out either back to Augsburg or head out round the corner at Donnersbergerbrücke and out of the map towards places such as Roseheim & Salzburg as some IC/EC services do in real-life. I mean, similarly to what I proposed with Köln-Aachen, you could get the 363 involved in this route too, preparing and bringing IC coaches into Munich ready for the 101's to take out. Now this is probably not what happens in real-life and in a ideal world, if we did have a cab-car, that's probably what we would use on this route. But working with what we have now, this would be a ideal compromise for two specific reasons: 1. Having one 101 pulling a set of IC's on it's own on this route would look far better and more believable than having two 101's top-n-tailing each other 2. By having it this way, you would also get more use out of some of those yards around Munich and giving them more life with locos stored in the yard waiting to run into Munich Hbf and collect their trains. Again, we are probably not getting this loco on any other routes in service mode unless you use Scenario Planner right at release, but again, I do hope that in the future, we can use this on other German routes, whether they be existing or routes that are coming way in the future as again, this has massive amounts of potential to be used on may routes in the German network, even if it doesn't come with the cab-car.
