    I've only got the Crewe - Llandudno / Conwy part. So what will my update be, please?

    If you have only the North Wales Coastal: Crewe – Llandudno route and not the extension you won't get the free update you need to own both that and the extension.

    Good work DTG, thank you so much for bringing this route back to stores and allowing players who couldn't buy the old version to buy this new version.

    Most welcome! However, like others, I only own Crewe - Llandudno/Conwy. You say that we don't get this upgrade for free. That's totally understandable. Do we get a discount though? I don't see it fair to pay full whack if we own half the route already, as if we don't own any of it? Cheers.

    Was excited at first but then read the comments that those without the Llandudno/Conwy - Holyhead extension won't get the update.
    Kinda sucks really.
    Could you amend the article to say that those who don't have the extension to Holyhead won't get the free upgrade?

    I think the article is clear - it says "own both"

    Why does it seem every time dovetail tries to do something right they still miss it up? It should be free for both owners, I can't buy the extension and get the rest for free, but you welcome me to pay full price for some added skins and the extension I didn't get, but if someone owns both no matter how much they paid they get it for free? Just give the extension out as a goodwill and stop being greedy.

    It should not be free for both owners. Some paid for the original, and some paid for the extension. Why should those who did not pay for the extension now get it for free? I think there should be a discount for those who only have the first part, rather than asking them to pay the full price.

    And we can't have any discount if we have the North Wales Coastal: Crewe – Llandudno route only??

    That would be great, but I don't see this happening:
    - North Wales Coastal 175 kms
    - South Wales Coastal 137 kms
    because TSW2 is still churning out routes 60-9x kms and they have not indicated anything longer. :(

    That would be the best thing for them to do. Discount for owners of Crewe-Llandudno. Unless there is something in the way Steam and whatnot are setup with regards to being able to do so.

    They can cut the lines to shorter.
    SWC will be Bristol - Cardiff only
    NWC will be Chester - Llandudno only
    Then it wouldn't be a problem to make it happen in TSW :)

    I don't really know if that's possible, but since Steam is major shopping centre for gamers. I think it's a thing for a while already.

    I missed the boat when the Holyhead extension was originally pulled... I've wanted the extension for years, now its coming back if I want it I'm presuming I have to buy the WHOLE route from Crewe - Holyhead... Kinda sucks really... I'm not really bothered about the upgrade (just want the Llandudno- Holyhead route section) as it's not really my time period... Not saying I wouldn't play it but I prefer good old BR days when 1st gen DMU's, 37's, 40's & 47's worked the coast...

    I would gladly buy the whole route if it was backdated to say the 1970s with loops at Abergele (etc) and semaphore signalling. Now there's a workshop opportunity!

    Used to call them "Daddy Clanger" for the Mains and "Baby Clanger" for the loops (after the sound made when they dropped)

    Except you don't have any routes in TSW2 to run this train so it would be pointless building it

    What difference does a pre-order make?
    The route comes out in 5 days - you can buy it anytime after that

    Yes, Crewe Diesel Depot is in the route and, from what I remember all of Basford Hall and the Carriage Shed south of the station

    The new one is not released until 20th - this is the old one and, AFAIK, the Crewe end has not changed

    They have until 23:59:59 :)

    Assuming they’re not going by Pacific Standard - California - time!

    They normally do because it is a release on Steam
    10:50 Thursday, Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is
    02:50 Thursday, Pacific Time (PT)

    If you think when a Sale is on it starts at 17.00 GMT this release might be the same

    Who’s paying now and who’s waiting for the sale?

    I still haven’t really used the previous NWC much yet, so I have an excuse to hold off!

    I never see the videos posted on these forums, only on my mobile, is there a setting I'm missing to allow them to be shown? Sorry if this is a noob question.
