    It's a great little route, and it's been a while since a new piece of DLC has offered the feeling of something different to drive, well done :)

    Purchased just over 24 hrs ago, day off work and just the one to go.
    On saying that I could still be trying to complete this last one in 6 months time, drive like mad / brake like hell is the plan LOL.
    A completely different little DLC and a load of fun, makes such a change from the norm. Well done for releasing this gem.

    An important note. It is possible that the 32-bit engine is not capable of handling the train in this expansion. There was a post on the weekend about the auto-early light staying on with a green signal in 32-bit mode; the user tried 64-bit with no issues. It may be worth noting that the DLC must be played in 64-bit.

    I thought the real trains had a gloss paint finish, not a matt one?

    Yes, you are completely right. No train has a gloss paint finish. No train has any glints or reflections and it's impossible for the Glasgow subway trains to be anything but dead matt. I'm just imagining glossiness exists. LOL

    Comparing a subway car to a steam train in sim lol

    take a look at a real life image if a spt subway car in the era the sim is set to you will see they were not glossy for obvious reasons

    here let me assist you scroll down to the one on the trailer.http://www.scot-rail.co.uk/photo/scaled/481/ so LOL

    Not glossy like this one, or the one you linked to?

    Why are you saying that trains in TS can't be glossy, when they clearly can? Why are you saying that Glasgow subway trains are matt, when they clearly are not?

    they don’t stay like that for long.
    Plus I like many others prefer the dirty looking trains in sim looks way more realistic

    Something about the passengers... not only do they change at station stops, but despite the low res textures there's something real about them. Noticed that everyone is smiling and not staring at their phones? :D Seems life's pretty good in Glasgow.

    Well this topic is about the GLASGOW SUBWAY and you said you wouldnt get a signal down there. I just showed you you can and the same on the london underground you have WIFI in the stations even the deep tube ones and on the Jubilee line extension you even get a full 4g signal.

    Well, I know trains do have signals, but much of the time it's based on a wireless service. It's the same way you get service in a moving car. But if you go to the back country where cell service doesn't exist, neither will your Wifi.

    The subway systems mentioned above do not have cells on the trains the cells are mounted in the tunnels it is not a moving cell.
