    A WCML would be popular but

    1. It’s over four hundred miles which is around x8 times the length of any existing TSW release. It’s been said that routes of that length would be technically feasible but would take a long time to build - and therefore cost a lot of money to develop.
    2. DTG, or any other develooer has never released ten classes of locos with a route either in TS1 or TSW. Generally a route will have one or perhaps two items.

    So, doing all of this would be a huge undertaking and as a single pack would be very expensive - probably $200-300.

    If we do see a WCML it’ll likely be a section with a couple of locos based on the era that they choose.

    WMT own barely any if not no 321s anymore. The section of the WCML we’d get would be something like Euston to Tring with a 378, 350 and a 390 but it seems unlikely we’d get this.

    Or Euston to Milton Keynes about half an hour in reality would be a great route with good choice of locos
