    My proposal if for the West Coast Mainline between London Euston and Milton Keynes Central. The route is 50 miles long which I think is a reasonable distance considering that about 10 miles will have already been build for the Bakerloo line. The route would look like the below image.

    The route features stations of:
    London Euston, South Hampstead, Kilburn High Road, Queen's Park, Kensal Green, Willesden Junction, Harlesden, Stonebridge Park, Wembley Central, North Wembley, South Kenton, Kenton, Harrow & Wealdstone, Headstone Lane, Hatch End, Carpenders Park, Bushey, Watford High Street, Watford Junction, Kings Langley, Apsley, Hemel Hampstead, Berkhamstead, Tring, Cheddington, Leighton Buzzard, Bletchley and Milton Keynes Central.

    I think that this is a good route because it provides a variety of services.
    There are stopping services with London Overground. There are semi-fast services with London Northwestern Railway and Southern. And there are express services with Avanti West Coast. It could even provide some Caledonian Sleeper services.

    The rolling stock for the route could be:
    Class 378

    Class 710

    Class 377

    Class 350

    Class 390

    Class 92

    Looks nice. Couple of things though :
    1. You wont get all that rolling stock I suggest the 390 (pendilono), 350, 377 and 378.
    2. The route is exactly long for a 390. Could you extend the route a little. Possibly extend the route as far as Rugby???

    Really nice suggestion
    1. For the class 377 southern services you would need an extension to East Croydon.
    2. Avanti West Coast is new so I don’t think a licence will be possible at the moment

    There’s no reason why being new should hold back a license. You could argue it helps to raise awareness of the brand/company.

    I think that the 710 is more likely than the 378 because the 710s have mostly replaced them on this route.
