    Hi everyone!

    I just wanted to get your recommendations with regards to which add-ons, routes and locos are good for practising TS19 skills?

    I am fairly comfortable with TSW, so I'm going to dive deeper into TS19 in the followings weeks, but there's so much content that I feel a bit lost :)

    Any suggestions?

    For UK Routes the South London Network is quite good with complex track layouts and short signal spacing.
    Another is London to Peterborough with a good mix of high speed running and commuter trains
    The Riviera in the 50s is a good Steam era route - although I use Diesels as they are easier to drive for me.
    Another good route released thru DTG is the Wherry Lines as the detail is very good and everything works as it should

    The German route Garmisch - Munchen is a good route with a mix of double and single track sections and some good gradients
    And the Three Country Corner Route is a very good Austrian/Swiss/German route with three different signalling systems

    You should look at some scenarios on the workshop as they tend to be better than the default scenarios which are restricted by the stock that came with the route.

    If you are looking for a place to try out some US Commuter trains i'd personally recommend the BNSF Racetrack DLC. Lots of good express runs along with some all stoppers.

    Horseshoe Curve is always a good choice! Sure the route itself looks a bit old, but the uphill climb from Altoona to Galitzin offers a fun challenge, and once you crest the top of the hill, the rest of the route provides some fun downhill, high speed runs at around 45-60 miles an hour. Not to mention the vintage locomotives and rolling stock that comes with it!

    Weardale and Teesdale Network in the '60s is the route I got started with and remains my favourite. Comes with geared DMUs and Diesel-electrics and potential for everything except fast main line running. If you wanted to add steam (which I imagine is going to be the big difference between TS and TSW) any Eastern region or BR standard class loco' would be right at home and a few Midland types. There are many suitable to choose from from basic older models such as the Robinson O4 or Thompson B1 (they both include scenarios for Woodhead but the Workshop makes up for that) to the gorgeous looking Q6 in the pro' range.
