    Steam only releases new software at about 5PM UK time.

    Yeah, I should've specified that it removes the stuff that Steam has registered as belonging to the route, both Contents and Assets. It will, as you said, leave e.g. the Scenarios folder behind if there are custom scenarios

    I tried an older version of the free route, it's very good, highly recommended. Although it does require you to own a _lot_ of payware stuff.

    The same class 47 model is available in the rereleased Welsh Marches route as well as the original if you have it.

    I missed the original Marches too unfortunately, but this is excellent news!

    [edit] Is it only in that "Bossman Railways" livery though with that headboard? Any reskins available for it?

    BST = British Summer Time which runs from the end of March to the end of October, Also known as Daylight saving time or "when the clocks go forward one hour" it's also known as GMT+1.

    Ran a Quick Drive in a Pendolino from Euston to Wembley. Very positive impression of the route. Holds up very very well against the freeware. It does have the underground tracks it seems.

    Seems like another route to have quick drive issues. They should stop advertising quick drives....

    Apart from Queens Park Station there are no Underground tracks on this route - the Network Rail route from Euston to Watford Jn is included and Underground trains use part of it - like in TSW2 - but it's not owned by LT

    They're not advertising them, they're just included. What would be the best practice for them, moving forward, is to test out the quick drives, or utilizing a little less AI to avoid issues. Or they could strategically place more portals along the routes if that helps.

    That is one problem with their routes sometimes, lack of portals. Making a scenario on the London to Brighton line I couldn't find one portal on the main line. It is a pain when you want quite a large amount of AI traffic.

    Plenty of portals on the route, unfortunately plenty of badly scripted consists on the route too
