    WHAT! NO WAY 1000 SERVICES FOR 377!!!11! Read this:
    UPDATE: As we draw closer to the release of Rush Hour- London Commuter find out more about the services and layers you can look forward to on the busy Brighton Main Line. We aim to include an incredible 1,059 services for the BR Class 377 EMU, and 178 services for the BR Class 387 EMU across all platforms. Additional playable services for the BR Class 66, Southeastern BR Class 375 EMU, and Great Western Railway BR Class 166 DMU will also be available on Playstation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC versions of Rush Hour- London Commuter, taking those versions services to approximately 1,400 services. 1,400 Services. Incredible. That would be a train like every second!

    I must say that both Victoria & East Croydon look pretty good from that angle, curious to see more during the preview stream later!

    Also the number of services & layers is pretty impressive, looks like this route is going to be loaded with trains!

    4000 services including 1400 playable is certainly a landmark achievement for this route

    great work DTG on that one

    Wow. Almost 1400 services to play on PC and current gen consoles (XBSX/XBSS/PS5).
    That's awesome but I hope the scenery does the route justice.

    Sounds good - a shame that it's released on the same day as Far Cry 6 but there will be time for both... I hope :D

    Just to run down what those layers are:
    • Great Western Express brings the Class 66, GWR Class 166 & an AI HST.
    • Southeastern High Speed brings the 375/9
    • Class 465/9 Brings AI services
    • West Somerset Railway brings a static 09 at Lovers Walk
    Really intrigued to see what these will bring to this route, especially the HST from Great Western Express, but man...

    1400 services...

    I knew this route would have a lot of services, but that's just insane for any TSW route, over 3 times bigger than the previous record holder which was München – Augsburg.

    This might seem like a hot take, but I feel like regardless how this route turns out, that service record is not going to be broken any time soon.

    That is... absolutely bananas and well beyond what I'd hoped. Congratulations Joethefish and looking forward to hearing your comments on the stream later!

    - Assume the 375 will be ECS from Victoria Carriage Shed?
    - Wonder what the HST is?
    - No railtour services included by the looks of things?
    - No mention of the 313 but it hasn't been formally announced... yet

    There are also some services that terminate at Redhill, and don't go all the way to Gatwick.

    There are far too many electrostars in Victoria. In real life they mainly operate of Charing cross

    What about this route makes it "infamous" i.e. a negative connotation? Or have you conflated famous and infamous as meaning the same thing....which they don't.

    This is excellent news.

    Seems that way. Something probably had to give with that many services.

    from the looks of it, last gen won’t get the 166, 375, 465, HST & 66, Only the units that come with the route.

    I'm just going to ask. Even though last gen consoles do have less power. We have payed the same amount. Don't we have a right to have the same content as we payed the same price. If we do not can we have dlc discounted to show the fact we can't access the same content so therefore it should be cheaper

    I hate to sound nasty but for thoes who cant get or dont have pc or next gen consoles, why do we not get the full experience to what new gen/pc players will get? Honestly i dont know about anyone else here, but its almost ruined my excitement for this. When i first heard that additional layers would be added, i though omg, this will be epic. Now iv read the update, and dont get me wrong, the main content looks amazing, my excitement has dropped from 10 to like 3 maybe 4. Now like i said i dont like being/sounding nasty, but i hope this can be turned around somehow? If im wrong and have misread something somewhere then please tell me...

    For those on last gen consoles asking why you don’t get the same around of services, it’s because the game would most almost likely crash/become unstable with the amount of trains on the map. There just isn’t the power and/or memory to support it. You’ve got to remember that last gen is quite old now.

    Everything you’re paying for is the same as everyone else so you’re not losing anything, you still get the new stuff, it's the unpaid (free) content that you unfortunately won't get.

    Unfortunately at this point the PS4 and X1 series machines just don’t have the horsepower.

    Not "at this point" - if not now they never will. Last gen players have a right to feel shafted by this.

    It all comes down to 1 thing: The Last Gen Consoles are Old. They came out in 2013 and were almost certainly being worked on a few years before that. The lag on Last Gen on Boston Sprinter is Terrible. This, with its massive timetable on top of the details, would be unplayable. So in short, its either extreme lag or reduced features to increase performance. If at some point you move to PS5/Xbox Series X\S, your Add-Ons and (xbox only) save data comes with you. Unreal Engine 4 is Intensive on Modern Hardware. I sometimes get Jittery Performance on My PC, which was built in 2016 using 2015 Hardware (the Latest at the Time)

    Does this mean no 166, 66, 43 layers at all for last gen? Or just a reduced amount? DTG Protagonist

    yes, they do have a right to feel like that but just look at what happened with HMA when they tried to add the layers to that on the older consoles. It was so bad causing crashes and issues that they had to remove the extras and only allow the default units.
    BML has a lot more services with this timetable so there would be issues there (there's already issues with Boston dropping framerates on older consoles).

    Poorer content deserves lower prices. It's a bit like someone charging the same about for the demo or a Deluxe edition. Currently last gen is the demo and next gen or pc are the deluxe
