Thought i would create a thread to see what peoples main reasons were for obtaining each route they have in their collection. Basically what got your attention to get the route the most not primarily why you like now each route. Only 2 rules; It can be from any TSW era Try to keep it to no more than 2 reasons My reasons; TSW1 LIRR - got in a bundle and it was something different Peninsula Corridor - setting of San Francisco GWE - it was my first route I got on founders edition, it was the first time I saw a “proper” train sim on Xbox WSR - at the time I had the means of getting a route and decided that it was a pretty nice looking one. NTP - I got it in a bundle, but I do enjoy it’s express services and scenery quite a lot TVL - it’s a relatively local route to me East Coatsway - I wanted it for a while before i got it, probably the branches/ where it is and a modern U.K. loco was the main points. Rapid Transit - Second route I ever got, I wanted to try something that would be a change from GWE and it’s unique underground stations stood out. RSN - got it in a bundle (like the other routes I was building up my collection) I enjoy it to this day for its freight driving opportunities. MSB - double deckers trains I found interesting (I’m from England and not from the last century so that just not a thing ever) RRO - thought it was a pretty looking route, once I got it I enjoyed doing freight services with it. HRR - I think I got this as it was my last Route to get from TSW 1 (building up a collection when I could) I enjoy how it pretty much has 3 major stops with quite the speed with express Canadian Oakville - Canada new country, something different NEC - came with a bundle of 2 with Rapid Transit, I enjoyed the ACS-64 and remember it was a go to of mine when I wanted to go on TSW TSW2 Sand Patch Grade - Free with TSW2, I think the blue of the loco with the sand and yellow/gold CSX loco make it quite “slick” if that’s the word for it. Clinchfield - Interested by F7 Cane Creek - Scenery Boston Sprinter - Return of the ACS-64 Sherman Hill - Tough one, but I think it’s that it’s got higher speed limits for what seemed like the first for US freight Harlem Line - Got it on a good sale and I enjoyed the M7 and M3 from LIRR Bakerloo - Came with TSW 2, but I do like London Underground Isle of Wight (older) - Probably the seaside setting combined with building up my route collection SEHS - Fast services with Class 395 Cathcart - New country of Scotland London Commuter - maybe the destinations was my reasoning for this one, I’m intrigued by routes that go between 2 major places, end to end. West Cornwall local - interested by the Class 150 Spirit of steam - Introduced Steam Trains to the Game Isle of Wight 2022 - probably the ex d stock plus a revisited look to an older route could be interesting. Koln Aachen - (one of 2 reasons I got TSW2 the other being Preserved collection) High Speed ICE introduction to TSW Munich Augsburg - more different services for ICE Hamburg Lübeck - Building up my collection and the route seemed nice. Nerverkhr Dresden - 1. Dresden HBf (I think the station design is very nice in reality and ended up rather well in game) 2. Branches for multiple different experiences with one route Tharandter Rampe - 1. I like the Dresden area 2. Thought the 612 would be something different to try out and like. Luzern Sursee - Switzerland New country (I never went for Arosa) LGV Mediterrane - France New country and I like high speed so I thought and do enjoy the TGV. TSW 3 Cajon - Free with TSW3, scenery was quite a stand out and new company Kassel Würzburg - ICE1 I wanted to see in TSW and the length of the route was and still is the longest Bremen - think it has a charm to it, despite its size, (reminds me in the snow of like a classic European snowy city video or something) plus 2 new loco’s really which would be the latest iteration to date when I obtained it.
