Hi all, many avid followers of the roadmap and/or TSG's brilliant work will know about the DB BR 232 currently in developement as a loco add-on for Ruhr-Sieg Nord. As far as I know it isn't scheduled to come out this year, and this means that there might still be the possibility of introducing this loco for the new Riesa - Dresden route instead. There are multiple reasons as to why I find that option preferable, and I'll list those below. However, this is not a demand or anything, and I'd love the BR 232 just as much if it comes out on the great RSN. Riesa - Dresden could use a freight DLC As it stands, Riesa - Dresden does have freight, but it is rather basic, and uses the same (albeit updated) wagons. The runs are A-B and don't go into any sidings, partially because these are non-electrified. These non-electrified sidings could be a perfect playing ground for the diesel powered BR 232 in scenarios and a few timetable services. There is also the Meißen branch, which could see a few scenarios with the BR 232 as there often are diesel hauled freight services on the line beyond Meißen as far as I know. The BR 232 could also bring new services that tie in the BR 363 better, by interacting with it when picking up freight the 363 shunted earlier for example. This all means there is plenty of room and need for more interesting freight services and scenarios with the BR 232. Ruhr-Sieg Nord doesn't need another freight DLC Now of course a freight DLC for RSN would/could be great, but as it stands this route already has two amazing DLCs (the BR 155 with the Falns wagons and the BR 363 with the cement wagons) that give it a varied and great timetable for freight. It is not a route in desperate need of more freight content, as it has loads of it already. The BR 232 is at home in Dresden The area around Dresden is one of the places the BR 232 can still be seen a lot, more than on RSN. The BR 232 is a loco from the former DDR, which Dresden was a part of. This means that historically the BR 232 had way more important ties to Dresden than to an industrial valley in West Germany. However, these ties to Dresden continue to this day. The BR 232 can often be seen here due to the large diesel network around Dresden, with many non-electrified lines surrounding the cities. In addition to that the BR 232s are used on cross border operations to the Czech Republic. Besides that all large maintenance on the 232s happens in Cottbus, just 85 km away from Dresden, however some are also stationed in Oberhausen (though only small maintenance happens here), not too far away from RSN. The 232's most memorable use for me personally also happened in Dresden, when they were used to weigh down the bridge over the Elbe during floods (this could also be a great scenario ). All of this leads to the 232 being a common sight in and around Dresden. I think this makes the 232 a good fit for this fantastic route . It might sell better because more people own Riesa - Dresden? Because BRD was part of a bundled deal, more people (probably) own it. This makes the potential customer group for a BR 232 on this route higher, but I don't have any solid figures on that. 232s on the bridge over the Elbe when the water got really high. These reasons make me think the 232 would be better as DLC for Riesa - Dresden, but I'd like to hear your thoughts on is both in the comments and in the poll . I hope that at the very least the BR 232 will layer onto Riesa - Dresden, but this can be difficult to implement on existing timetables.
