    First, hehe :P

    Looks interesting, we have been dissecting it all weekend on the forum so hopefully a lot to chat about on the stream tonight.

    Nice combo \o/

    EDIT

    1.
    Praise the nice price \o/

    2. Preservation no more. Free core update + $ bundle = good.
    3. Amtrak & Riesa Dresden (with BR 101 and ICE!). Dreams come true.
    4. Informative FAQ. Good job.
    5. The new passenger system - intriguing - crowds on the platforms - is that possible?
    6. A new gameplay features / information. Nice.
    7. Hyped as train.

    As much as... yeah, we know... let me say Rush Hour looks like it might be a spectacular DLC, yes it features familiar rolling stock, but it also contains some long wanted routes and if done properly, it will be cheered for a long time.

    So please, DTG. PLEASE! Do these routes justice and make them well. Don't rush the Rush Hour.

    I'm very excited to see the Brighton Mainline Route and how they will handle all of the services. I'm hoping for a Thameslink Class 700, 387, or 319 to appear as a Loco DLC in the future.

    The Amtrak route also interests me, I like how we are finally getting another NEC Route, and that MBTA is finally coming to TSW 2.

    The German Route has me torn. I'm not a big fan of some of the rolling stock chosen for the route, however, Layering could probably change the way I feel about the rolling stock.

    Dissapointed that there are no new trains for the Brighton mainline or Riesa-Dresden.

    I am 1000% definitely buying this. It includes two of my favourite routes. Brighton Mainline: London Victoria to Brighton and Bahnstrecke Riesa - Dresden, including Northeast Corridor Boston - Providence.

    You should stop comparing it to TS. Every route is new to TSW and not everyone has played TS.

    I’m looking forward to the Brighton Main Line and Boston - Providence. Given we’re in a pandemic and travel is restricted it makes sense to reuse locos. They’re working with their hands tied and doing a decent job of it.

    I wonder if Brighton Mainline will join up with East Coastway. Maybe.

    I just hope DTG does the routes justice. SEHS was a bit too wonky for my liking.

    Only in small nuances, and even then i doubt they will actually be implemented.

    No announcement trailer? I had hoped to see some footage today.

    Anyway, this looks like a neat package. I drove on the Gatwick Express when I visited London in 2017, so definitely looking forward to that.

    Here's a summary of my thoughts on the routes:

    Brighton Mainline: While I'm certainly disappointed it's another Electrostar route in South East England I'm pretty excited for it. It's a fantastic route. Hopefully we'll see more variety in future modern British routes.

    Boston- Providence: I've missed the Amtrak route from TSW2020, so I'm happy to see a similar route return. Looking forward to it.

    Riesa- Dresden: This is definitely the one I'm least enthusiastic about. To me it just looks like yet another modern German route I'll struggle to distinguish from the dozens of others in the game. It's not for me, but hopefully those who like those routes will be happy with it.

    I just hope I can get my hands on a PS5 to take advantage of the new improvements coming.

    Rush Hour - the slowest hour of the day. It lasts for two hours, feels like four hours, and happens twice a day. Recreated in the form of trains stuck at signals and too many passengers for the services to cope with. Everybody is late, everybody is tired and grumpy, and it’s going to be marvellous. See that red signal? That’s your dinner going cold that is. Can’t wait.

    I misunderstood then from the marketing of this. I thought there be a stream at 4 then the roadmap stream being the roadmap as normal. Great to see new content , people will be happy to see Nec is back.

    It is 3 new routes for 24.99, the price of a normal DLC. So the fact the trains are not something totally different is a relatively moot point, this will, like all the main releases, be very good value for money.

    Looking forward to this. Basically three routes for the price of one plus the updated base program so even if you don’t want one of the routes it is still good value.

    Edited. For those who have read my initial post, I’ve just re-read the article and what I wrote is explained. I must have missed it the first time. So I have deleted this part of my post.

    They’ve still had to make these routes as well as the Rush Hour features, the fact they’re reusing trains is valid but that’s a business decision, they’re in it to make money. I hope you enjoy the new update :)

    Rush Hour isn’t the core update. Think of Rush Hour as an add-on. The core update will be separate.
