    Since you made an East Coastway, can you make a West Coastway between Brighton/Preston Park - Littlehampton & Bognor Regis because that would be nice!

    Because I'm lazy and it also helps the moderators - how far is it, what stations and locomotives would you use on it?

    I’d buy that route. East Coastway is one of my favourite routes so I’m inclined to think I’d really enjoy West Coastway too.

    This would definitely be a good shout, especially since ECW was done so well! It'd be nice to see some Sprinters
