    Hello folks,

    West Cornwall Local will be coming to you this Thursday, November 4th!

    With the release being delayed two weeks, we thought we'd share a quick changelog for improvements that have been made by the Rivet Games and Dovetail Games teams since then. These will be coming with the launch of the route.

    The headline is that we've added a layer for West Cornwall which uses trains from the Northern Trans Pennine route.
    • Northern Trans-Pennine and Heavy Freight Pack Layer featuring:
      • Class 47 + Mk2 coaches on express services
      • Class 47 + Mk1 BG coaches on mail train service
      • 08 on pilot duties in Penzance
      • Class 101 with small percentage chance of substituting in for Class 150/2 (all 150 services playable as 101)
      • Added some loose stock around various sidings from the Northern Trans-Pennine pack
    • Total services (including Northern Trans-Pennine) is 95 (up from 65).
    Please note that you will need to own the Northern Trans-Pennine and BR Heavy Freight Pack Loco Add-on, and that these layers will not be available to Epic players until the Preserved Collection is available on the platform. These layers will be available for players on all other platforms on release though.

    There have also been tweaks to the Class 150/2's audio - although we stress these are tweaks, rather than wholesale changes.

    Other fixes:
    • Added loose stock from Penzance pack on various sidings on the route
    • Improved fluidity of movement (i.e. more green lights) after reviewing dispatcher on the route
    • Fixed incorrect labelling of St. Erth services showing 'Lelant' as their destination
    • Fixed destination board logic and configuration for Class 150/2
    • Head- and tail-light configuration for all trains on route improved
    • Fixed interaction volume for doors on Class 150/2 so it doesn't interact with the fuel cap - making 'Late Night Shift' scenario easier to complete
    • Removed blank journey entries on Chapter 3
    • Custom livery for Class 37/5 now displayed in Scenario Planner
    • Route intro loads on first access of route
    • Correct thumbnail for route under player profile
    • Loaded Turbot wagons appear as loaded, when previous shown as empty
    • AWS now triggers in Class 150 introduction
    • Small minor graphical and ambient noise improvements, focused primarily around immersion at stations

    Sounds promising.

    For those of us on Xbox who've already purchased and downloaded WCL, do we need to delete and re-install, or will it just update the existing title?

    I must say these updates will improve the experience for me - and I already enjoy the route on Xbox, having got it during that small window.

    Having more than just the 150 and 37 will really enhance the experience, very good Rivet and Dovetail!

    NTP layers, good to see that! 47's express services will enhance the experience. Hope those tweeks on 150/2 audio are good enough. I think im getting this Dlc from day 1.
    What are those pilot duties with de 08?

    I am extremely happy with this news. The delay for this route was worth it. More variety of train traffic will indeed make this route more alive now.

    Shouldn’t this say “layers from the Northern Trans-Pennine route” rather than for it?

    Well done on the improvements by the way. It looks like a more worthwhile DLC now.

    I had a funny feeling DTG where going to add a 47 + MK2 to the route seems a no brainer. With Livery designer people can add IC Livery and Virgin for Privatisation Era adds so much more potential to route. Great job DTG/Rivet.
    Also the 101 too can be re-done in Regional Rail Livery.
    Edit: I dont think the NTP or BR Heavy Haul is Livery Compatible yet?
    The BR GWE Legend stuff is but probably does not sub in?
    I am sure all will become clear on the Release Stream.

    Cool news! I like the old British stock, but apart from tees, I rarely use it. Will certainly keep the route on my wishlist and might opt in to get it sooner rather than later now with all that added traffic. But I will wait for first reviews though.

    I'm not sure we need the 40s and 45s considering both were withdrawn by the late 80s, but the extra variety is appreciated, can't wait to get my hands on the route.

    NTP is set in 1983. Class 150 entered service in... 1984.

    Updates to WCL sound good. Might pick this up once the PS trophies appear.

    This is good news and in reality Class 150/2 was ordered to replace the ageing Class 101s.

    TrainSim-Matt Can you confirm that the 37 subs in to railtours on other routes such as the below on East Coastway taken from your 313 stream last Thursday?

    Well, that’s a pleasant surprise. The Class 37 will get a bit more action, which I’ll gladly accept.

    You mean German and Austrian safety systems. Had added in to the class 150s were ordered it's because of the ageing problem of class 101s

    This has just gone from a no no to a maybe, I'm in the south west till the weekend when this releases so can see how the dust settles after release. Hopefully a smooth one now some work has been done and the additional loco hauled services have swung it plus 101 sub is realistic for the era. Nice one all concerned for throwing some extra effort in!!
