    ...If there is a train(s) you'd like to see in TSW, what is it and why?

    For me it's the Sprinters, the 380 and the 385 (BR Classes).
    What's yours?

    UK Pendolino in either Avanti West Coast or Virgin Trains livery if they can get the licence. Of course some part of the northern sections of the WCML route to go with it would be nice.

    0723m070383.jpg Class 25, because Manchester Victoria without one or two just doesn't feel right.

    The 700 - only issue is licensing

    NYC Metro LIRR and future Metro-North M9 basically the latest American 750v DC Third rail Top and Bottom Contact emu. Followed by DM30AC Penn Station to Port Jefferson Oyster Bay and Speonk services. DE30AC Long Island City to Port Jefferson Oyster Bay Speonk Patchogue and Montauk services.

    0303su150882.jpg We still don't have a BR 25kv electric locomotive in TSW2. This is a class 86 at Manchester Piccadilly. The line to Crewe via Stockport and with the Wilmslow loop would make a fantastic route. It also had class 304 and 310 electric multiple units on local trains and our class 47,45 and 40 could make an appearance.

    Class 108 DMU, much more common around the Manchester area in 1983 than the class 101 would have been. Also Heaton had an allocation of them in 1989 so could have been seen on TVL, plus very useful for future BR period routes.

    Second to that a class 104. Third to that a class 117 for the GW "legends" pack as it is certainly more legendary as a Reading division DMU than the class 101 is!

    As Tonto said, we need some UK 25kv locos, maybe some WCML routes to use them on.

    1005tu280683.jpg Like this you mean? Taken at Guide Bridge in 1983, a class 56 with a load of coal from Yorkshire probably heading for Fiddlers Ferry power station.

    Well, not one individual train but rather a time period. If there was an appropriate route, I would love to see some 1980's Deutsche Bundesbahn action. BR103s and BR112's with 1st class coaches only as TEE express trains, BR103s, BR111s, and BR120s with Intercity Trains. The BR403 electric multiple unit as Intercity and "Airport Express". The BR212, the western German equivalent of the BR204, in front of "silver" regional coaches.

    A very cool time. Of course, it is only a dream and the past of 30-40 years ago cannot easily be recreated on a simulator.

    51327440_2086033814795048_384586880810745856_n.jpg Class76 which operated on the 1500v DC Woodhead route from Manchester Piccadilly to Sheffield. Not my picture, a friend took this, it shows several members of the class at Reddish depot, Manchester. This route already exists in Train Simulator so perhaps it will make the jump to TSW2 one day.
