Railway enthusiasts/TS users, feel free to discuss your ideas and opinions on what would make Train Simulator (PC/PS4-PS5/XBOX) more immersive, enjoyable and less repetitive in terms of more immersive scenarios (career, standard etc), e.g if an entirely new simulator were created from scratch by Dovetail Games. I'd like to see more accurate steam period routes and scenarios that recreate significant events in railway history set during the glory days of steam such as Mallard's 126 mph speed record, Flying Scotsman (100 mph), Silver Link (112 mph) and 6220 Coronation (114 mph), military trains delivering ammunition, weapons and armoured vehicles to shipping ports for transport to Europe during WWII, followed by the introduction of diesels and preservation movement up to 2020. Drive prestigious long distance passenger trains on accurate timetables, the Coronation, Flying Scotsman, Elizabethan Golden Arrow, Cheltenham Flyer, Bristolian, Coronation Scot, Thames - Clyde, Palatine, Irish Mail, Cornish Riviera Express and the Royal Train. A cinematic camera can alternate between a wider selection of track-side views or Hollywood style shots for trains running at high speed. Arrival windows will have more time, at least five minutes before departure from stations or more if disruptions occur. Players can customise/control an avatar/character, choosing any year to start a career as an engine cleaner for older railways before the formation of the GWR, LNER, SR or LMS to build up skills and experience and rise up through the ranks of passed engine cleaner -> fireman -> passed fireman -> driver or train guard/ticket inspector with the option to switch between third and first person cameras. Additional professions include chief mechanical engineers and fitters working on every aspect of construction from drafting design blueprints to cutting metal plates and crafting whistles, pistons, brass gauges, domes, fireboxes. tenders and maintenance and repairs for various locomotives classes at Swindon, Crewe, Doncaster, Eastleigh, Ashford. Brighton, Wolverhampton, Gorton, Stratford Works etc. Tasks include operating steam powered cranes to lift heavy machinery, pouring molten metal into casting moulds to make wheel sets and using lathes to turn them prior to installation and running in trials, daily work done by UK preservationists and staff at Meiningen Works in Germany. Carpenters/upholsterers/painters help create carriages, goods wagons and liveries. Players deal with unexpected delays to services on the network, track repairs, generating and sustaining income and cleaning up derailments (Ais Gill Disaster, Harrow & Wealdstone) to break the monotony of continuous driving for miles. Landslides, snowdrifts and rockfalls will have to cleared in extreme weather on the Settle & Carlisle, West Highland Line. CMEs Gresley, Collett, Churchward, Stanier, Bulleid and Peppercorn make occasional appearances to comment and evaluate your overall progression depending on what railway has employed you. Experience points unlock more challenging scenarios, railway works, locomotives, standard or narrow gauge routes/regions and could be applied to discounts for additional expansion packs (Dovetail Games, Just Trains). All of the above would apply to railway operations and career progression in Continental Europe, Ireland, America, Australia, Japan and other hidden gems located around the world.
