    Interesting route, I use the metro on a daily basis. Wouldn't mind driving it!

    Aye, and always wondered just how the old stock run myself. Be nice if they were ever simulated as an archive piece of the 80s, cause no way will any new stock be quite like the quirky 994s :)

    Looks cool, quick tip - the unit should not be covered by the logo, so you need to move it to the left/right depending on the image :)

    They are very nice. The seat at the front is the best spot. Theres not many trains where you can see out the front window, in the UK at least. :)

    FANTASTIC proposal!! I've been interested in the Tyne and Wear Metro system since I was a kid - I've never ridden on it, but from the details your proposal lays out and what I know of it through open source research, it would make a strong addition as a TSW route!

    Hey you never know, the last two UK routes have been in the north and after a forum post on here about the TVL look what happened. Also Tyne and Wear would surely be the natural progression so to speak after Yorkshire and Teesside? :D
