    I believe that the West Anglia Main Line (WAML) should be created for Train Simulator 2018.

    The route begins and London Liverpool Street, which is already in the game, and ends at Cambridge, but also has other main destinations such as Stansted Airport and Bishops Stortford. The route offers so much diversity in terms of services. There are the express "Stansted Express" services, stopping services and freight. Because of the line only having 2 tracks there is some very interesting signaling due to the express trains. Most stopping services will wait for fast services to go through at Harlow Town and Broxbourne.

    There is so much potential for scenarios for this route if it were to be made. A list of some services are here:
    Stansted Airport - London Liverpool Street
    Bishops Stortford - Stratford (via Lea Bridge)
    Hertford East - London Liverpool Street
    Cambridge - London Liverpool Street (fast)
    Cambridge - London Liverpool street (slow/stopping)
    Cambridge - Stansted Express (Cross Country)
    Several Freight services

    If the Lea Valley lines were to be added also, there would be even more destinations:
    London Liverpool Street - Cheshunt
    London Liverpool Street - Enfield Town
    And also the many divertions via the lines GA services form the WAML.

    There would also be a good amount of locos used on the line. The '317's and the '379's are the main users of the line, but there are some XC '170's also used on the line. Class 66s are used on most freight services.

    The line offers so much in terms of train diversity and the potential of all the scenarios that this is a line that should NOT be missed!

    Sounds pretty interesting. I'd love to have a big network like this. I just hope DTG would be willing to make such a big project. They made the Marias Pass route which is somewhere around 150 miles long, so I don't see why they couldn't do this.

    Great Idea for this route stations like stanstead Airport and Cambridge are not in the game and this route would do great with class 304 emu class 317 emu and class 321 emu and class 378 electrostar and the route would do well in the game
