It's good to see the Tohoku New and Old main lines in there - Wonder if a Steam release is coming
I don't think this line is new, its probably old by Just train for TS 2021. I hope that it will also come to TSW 2, because we still haven't got one japanese route at all, Still
Oh I know it's the TS Classic version - it released a few weeks ago on JT's site so is still pretty new
i believe it was release a couple of years ago back
Nope it released in November last year - it's the most recent Union Workshop Route
Where is the link to it? i thought it was the one on the just train website
It is on JT's site - https://twitter.com/JustTrains/status/1461277721200402434 18th Nov it released.
The expansion should be 9,99€ as extra dlc when they don’t change the 423
WOW, this sale is awesome! 75% off nearly everything, including recent releases?
This space in this image...
Does it mean something or is that how it should appear?
How it should appear - the trains appear either side of the profile content - which is in the centre of the screen - it's a pretty standard template for profile backgrounds
I thought it might be some new content that shouldn't appear, but what you said makes sense...
Can someone please add the link to the stream here?
The BR 423 on Koln-Aachen is currently being shown off and the new timetable it brings has quite a bit more services, 408 in total (Although I don't think the Rhein-Ruhr Osten Intermodal services seem to be active on the build that's being shown, so I imagine the actual number will be 414), and this timetable also adds some new services using the BR 425 and BR 101...
…and would you have a guess at who might be have been behind all of this?
No Line numbers on the 423 and the wrong Passenger Room is a Joke
So this package will be the new timetable for SKA?
EDIT Have AI scenery trains been added for directions other than Köln - Aachen?
How do we get the steam rewards? Do everyone get it?
Surely not joe ?
Really nice seeing trains stored in the yards.
Joe seems to have done another good job
Are the AI-freight trains and RE-trains still speeding at 250 km/h down the line? Or has this been fixed in the new timetable? (by setting a service max speed, like for the G6 in its services?)
About the BR423, three things I noticed:
big DB-logos on the EMU, that are not there irl,
missing line numbers
wrong color PIS
And then wrong, but I don't think you will correct it:
the BR423 in Köln does not have LZB
Is there a proper discussion thread for the expansion pack? Haven’t found one yet. Anyways, I think the pack is a cool idea, but I wouldn’t be able to justify spending more than a few bucks on it.
Two of the three trains are essentially just new liveries, with no other changes made. Not even the 423 PIS color and line number display have been replicated, so it really is just a simple livery after all.
The only route which actually gets some huge gameplay enhancements is SKA, but you can get most of the services by buying a preserved route which is often discounted. Besides, such service and AI additions have been done by the preservation crew in the past at no additional cost (for example the completely revamped Rapid Transit timetable).
The idea is amazing in theory, and I encourage DTG to continue exploring this idea in the future. But I think I’ll pass on this one unless the Underground stuff absolutely blows me away somehow. I’m not paying the price of a loco DLC (they’ll probably be pricing it like that) mostly for a few new liveries and the ability to drive existing services with a different train.
Edit: Scratch that. In hindsight, I honestly feel bad criticizing something we haven’t even fully been shown yet. Sorry.
Seriously? You expect them to rebuild the interior for that price?
True, but it doesn't matter. You can switch it on, but you'll get nothing since the S-Bahn line isn't equipped with it anyway, and the SB doesn't use the Schnellfahrstrecken.
we don't know the price yet, so no idea. They already have the interior in the BR422 ...
The 422 interior is not the same as the pre-refurbed 423's. That would be just as wrong as the München version.
The horn on the CSX SD40 is amazing!
I do agree, the number is an important feature I noticed missing especially considering the different numbers of services is technically what this train is in this dlc to do
as for the passenger rooms I think I would have to base that decision when the price tags releases, usually I let it go if it’s a layer but not sure on my thoughts yet for that happening with paid expansions
Yes! DTG finally gets a US loco horn that sounds right! (Still not loud enough, but they probably don't want headphone players suing them.....)
It's also coming (someday) to the Clinchfield SD40 as well. Which will also get banking comms!
Thats exactly why the gameplay addons is a good thing. Those who dont like it can just skip that dlc without loosing anything. You get the pis and preseevation update anyway.
And for people like to enhance the routes and make it more alive with more variety (me included here), can do this with this dlc.
Havent found the charity pass on steam, so i rather pay a price for enhancements than expect dtg to do a "cheap" low range pack and it might be the only one because the costs are not covered.
Im interested to get more of them, just because i like to drive routes, which feel alive. I dont mind paying the price of a loco addon if the value comes up to that.
I have t seen the stream, but did they said when this extension pack will be out ?
Its not that far away & the pack will be released before adams update with pis integration etc. is out.
My guess is next 2 weeks we will get the preview stream .
I’d guess similar price to diesel legends £11.99?
I’m liking some of these older routes getting busier. I’ve had a few instances (always seems to be German routes) where you’ll pick a service and all of a sudden you’re routed down a line you’ve never seen before. I love this
They haven't even announced the price and you're complaining about it...
Is there anywhere on the forum where we can post our own 4UP challenge results?
Just on this thread I imagine
And not directly related to the Expansion Pack, but to SKA, can you please fix the Station list? It should say Köln not Cologne, Düren not Duren, etc... This would also fix the "intelligent" PIS on the BR146 and the cab car etc. From yesterdays stream, the BR423 seems to also use the new "intelligent" PIS, as it also said Duren instead of Düren, and it would then also be fixed at the same time, as the PIS destinations are taken from the station list.
Do you have a link to the portion of the stream where this was discussed?
is this horn just like the real-world horn? we haven't heard the low horn sound, and the bell still? and does the engine sound the same?
This is how the horn suppose to be like
I am really surprised about the big discount for Sherman Hill route on Steam!.
Other routes OK, because they are older ones.
But this is a brand new one.. Just launched around one month ago.
I believe this never happened before.
Normally to have those discounts it took several months, or even more than a year.
Please notice I have PS4, so I am not affected. But payed my attention anyway.
But PC / Laptop members who purchased before, must not be happy now.
Sorry, can't time-stamp it. Obviously it was in the second hour, when Matt and Nat were previewing the gameplay pack. But the high horn at least sounds very good (if still not as eardrum-bursting loud as the real ones), including that fade-in and fade-out at the beginning and end of the blast. Plainly a recording from the real thing. And since this semi-new loco is based on the CRR SD40, that one will receive the same two key upgrades, horn and banking comms.
"Tohoku High Speed Rail And Main Line" was announced for the stream, but it didn't happen.
Was there an explanation why? I was looking forward to seeing the track.
Yes, what happened to that? No explanation.
Seems it was deleted from the schedule… would have been nice for someone to mention that here in this thread so some of us didn’t waste our time waiting for it. DTG comms at its best again?
Saves me checking the VOD - was out last night...
I was scanning back and forth looking for it.
Caught last night's video and didn't realise it was TS1 only but I thought the first video by RJ was really good. The route looked good and he came across well. That route would look good in TSW2. Couldn't stay awake for the rest of the video's but the first one was good imo.
Sorry for double post but does anyone recall what they said about Bakerloo in the first Video? Tried to stay awake but must of drifted off, I watched it in one session (insomnia). I think I heard them say they were not going to show anything but would mention something only I missed it.

Can't wait to give it a bash... However with it being months away and the next UK DLC... It'll be a while before I purchase anything on a day one release. No I'm not being a "WHY ISN'T EVERYTHING BRITISH??!!", it's just that that is what my interest is.
Is that the one?
