    ... and it's magnificent. Well, perhaps that's a bit premature, but this DLC is a doozey! The best shunting challenges yet in TSW -- and I'm stating that after just a couple of work sessions.
    I'm hoping that DTG will carry on in this direction: adding rolling stock, scenarios, and sessions to existing DLC as adjuncts to new route creations. Service NH01 for the 08 is a superb and tricky piece of craftsmanship that requires strict attention to ... well, I won't spoil it for anyone else, but just note that I had to restart this gem several times before catching a ... take a try for yourself.

    Just purchased it, thanks for the impressions LastTrain. I always enjoy the shunting challenges and looking forward to trying out the new locos on NTP

    I have to agree with the others -- best addition yet - adds life to the all ready fine route - switching (or shunting) activities are fun and a fantastic break from the typical drive from point A to B. Quality of the 08 and whistler bodes well for TSW's future. Really looking forward the "Yard Goat" to add the same. Like LastTrainToClarksville, I hope to see more packs like this released adding to existing routes with period appropriate rolling stock, locomotives and activities.

    Add a class 25 at the bottom of Miles Platting bank to give me a shove and it'll be perfect..

    The 40s do sound very good. Love how they erupt into life. I'm rarely out of notch 10. :o

    Yeah I think the 40 has the best sound yet. I open the door and windows in the Cab while driving!

    And that's exactly the reason that I had to begin it 3 times before reading the description paragraph that was right there "under my nose" all the time. Let's keep that in mind wherever Gronks and goods vans come together, shall we?

    I played NH01 and the biggest challenge of that service was the time of day....could not see my nose in front of me ! I had no issue with the brake settings or switching....completed it on 1st attempt ;)

    i tried this shunting service it was ok until another AI shunter came and blocked my route. So i waited about 5 mins to see it would move but it didnt. i then decided to go and move it myself back to where it came from. i got back to my shunter then a AI 47 came and blocked my route, so i gave up with this service. NH01 van move 1

    I have played this service and the first time I collided with a 47 light loco. The second time I waited for the light loco to couple then move out of the yard. But it ended up blocking the route I needed. The third time I quickly got out of the yard before the light loco couples to the coaches and pulls it out of the yard. I think the timing is quite tight with that one.

    I dont think this should be on a timer. when i was a shunter many years ago on 08 and 09. in yards you stayed in your siding until you was told to by the head shunter to move. What i am saying is when shunting movements by the 08/09 where being made engines or trains stayed put in the sidings until you was told to move or even signalled. it didnt matter if you was 5,10 mins late you stayed where you was.

    The class 387 probably wouldn't, but the Class 800 & 802 (if I am not mistaken) are also diesel

    You can’t just ‘add wires’ to the current route. As mentioned many times already, a lot of things have changed since the electrification was done and when it was set in the game (2016). This includes extended platforms, different track and signalling, and many more things.

    It’s a whole lot different to what we have in GWE, so a whole new route would be required.
