    I think they should make a FULL freight route since there is only one

    Id like them to go back to GWE and improve the sounds, and various other aspects, also an expansion towards Oxford at least. If it can be done for Sand patch grade, it can be done for GWE.

    I hope they do the NJt line like Pennsylvania station to Trenton it would be so awesome to drive or the metro north Harlem line like Grand Central Terminal to southeast if they do the NJT Trenton line i’ll buy it.

    If you go back to the early development videos, one of the lead designers on TSW said how can we do this along a 60 / 70 mile route, I am sure we can have longer journeys, MSB is close but GWE is running at 125mph for 35 miles, ridiculous if I'm honest.

    And the UK and Germany have some of the most beautiful landscapes, especially the UK once out of Reading the land is rich but where is that representation. I will keep saying it until we see it

    And what about the US. We have plenty of beautiful places to railfan that trains travel. TRNTS1212_02.jpg

    I don't know why but I've had dreams about this game frequently and those two trains in that picture keep appearing in them with that exact livery, I don't even know much about American trains so it's really strange. Maybe it's a sign of things to come. ;)

    Think about why they would go back and perfect the Sand Patch locomotives. The only reason I can think (apart from just being "nice"), is they are currently developing another US Freight route, they fixed the issues with the locomotives, then implemented them on Sand Patch.

    I never thought of that. That's a very logical thought.

    My only question is if you're right then what's the new freight route and railroad, if there's a new railroad.

    Well, if we're assuming the AC4400CW would be reused (its physics are pretty different from the other two CSX:HH engines since it's AC traction), that pretty much eliminates BNSF (yes I know they have a few, but not many, besides licensing issues), CN, and NS. UP, CP, KCS, or Ferromex are still in the running, but they've never made anything from the last two for TS19 and seem to be staying inside the US instead of other parts of North America so realistically it could be a UP or CP route. I'd guess UP personally, they seem to have the best relationship with them compared to other North American railroads- there's a lot more UP stuff in TS19 than CP stuff (last I checked, there was only one route, right?).

    That was a lot of parenthesis. Oh well
