    I play DE and US routes equally, but could only choose one and there are more DE routes so I chose DE

    Well shoot, I accidentally voted for the wrong country. I’ve probably played more services on UK routes, but I’ve gotten a lot more gameplay and enjoyment from American routes. Whenever I have the time, it’s seriously enjoyable to drive on the Peninsula Corridor and Sand Patch Grade. And since those routes take are 47 & 52 miles long, with 1-2 hour long services, the US is definitely my most played.

    Based on my Route levels over both TSW1/TSW2:

    TSW1
    Rhein-Ruhr Osten (16)
    Great Western Express (15)
    Sand Patch Grade* (14)
    Northern Trans-Pennine (14)
    Peninsula Corridor (13)

    TSW2
    Bakerloo (31)
    SEHS (25)
    Köln - Aachen (21)
    Munich-Augsberg (20)
    Clinchfield (16)

    I've noticed route progression isn't 1:1 from TSW1 to TSW2 (ie levelling up routes in TSW2 is alot quicker); which is why I didnt combine them...but as you can clearly see most of my playtime is over the German & UK routes.

    * I don't think I would have sunk as much time into the original SPG on TSW1 had it not been the only route available for at least 6-7mths until the release of GWE

    US by a long shot, Canada a distant 2nd. I've never touched any route from any other country on TSW2 (I did a bit of German and UK on TSW, but not much)

    Tend to do all countries fairly equally, although US routes suffer a lack of love only due to not having time for the slower freight.

    I voted "Other..." just because I wonder what other countries I could possibly drive in :P

    I drive all the countries (except Canada and France, which are routes I don't own because I'm not a huge fan of shunting (Oakville) and dedicated high-speed lines (Marseille-Avignon)). But I guess since there's fewer US routes, I drive US routes less often. Besides, most of the US routes take longer to drive end-to-end, and I don't always have the time for that.

    US, and UK routes, but to be honest, i really want some new country. US freight getting boring, i like the passenger ones though.. UK shows some diversity, but german routes are all the same experience for me. Some east europian, or even asian route would be nice. But anything in a new country is welcome. Ive got overly bored of the UK/US/DE combo.

    I go through phases based on the type of service I want to do, but it’s probably currently pretty equal

    No option to vote for "I use everything equally"... I'm a Brit, but love the US and DE routes. Would like some new countries though, Japan with a Densha style introduction theme tune or Poland, with that awesome Mechanik music for example. Showing my age now

    German first by a long way. But I also like some of the UK routes.

    I’ve tried the US routes for both passengers and freight but just can’t get into them - probably as I know I will never see them in real life.

    It was actually fairly even in TSW2020 with the UK taking a bit of a lead. Since moving to TSW2, and then re-starting TSW2 on PS5, I've mostly been playing SEHS as it's one of the best routes that I didn't have previously (I've not really got into the three bundled routes that much), so that's skewed things very much toward the UK.

    Normally play UK and freight routes. Dont really like German. However, since the update, I've spent time learning German routes now

    I really choose what I drive based on the quality of the route, not where it is. I suspect if I totted up the hours the nod would go to North America, but that is really because I like freight, and I drive TVL and the BR 185 quite a bit; but I have spent a lot of time on Cathcart and HMA simply because they are so well realized.

    I’m pretty evenly spread between UK/GER content. Usually mix in a bit of LGV when I want something different.

    I have to be in the right mood for the US stuff since the long freight hauls require a lot of time investment. When I do play US, I usually go for the F7 on Clinchfield, love that loco :)

    Germany.

    German routes make me feel like I'm on holiday whereas the British routes make me feel like I'm going to work.
    Morley - Leeds ... This used to be 'next stop Hindle Valves and an 8 hour slog'...It never goes away :cool:

    American routes make me want to go to work

    I do the UK only, as that's what I'm interested in, maybe eventually I'll try out some German stuff but for now, it's UK only for me

    It really depends on the time of the year and my general mood! In February, I only played German routes. Throughout spring, I fancied having a go at the British DLCs. In July, I mostly played American passenger routes. And now, I’m suddenly very interested in the German DLCs again ;D

    In terms of most services/scenarios completed, Cathcart is top for me (no surprise, only Scottish route to date).

    So, Scotland is where my vote goes.

    England is a close second, however, ECW is a brilliant route.

    When I get the season pass I suspect Germany, with Dresden, will catch up, however.

    Please nobody kill me for seperating Scotland. It's called national pride ;)

    I am interested in all the released content. Only the future steam traction is not of interest! Germany, UK and USA are fantastic. Germany is more beautiful and fascinating, I spend more time with it. I would like new routes from other European countries - Austria, Italy, Czech Republic, Belgium and the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark, Poland. I'm really looking forward to the new routes in Canada. But the desire to remaster the existing TS2021 routes in Germany, Great Britain and the United States is much stronger.

    American and German, but sometimes I put American trains on UK routes.

    Mainly UK for me but I do own a lot of German content as I love playing with all safety systems on and there is plenty of content available.

    NTP is my most played route as I was brought up in that era and love that route in real life, however the in-game route is in need of some major love and attention but that's a discussion for another thread.

    Germany, but only because that has the most content and the busiest routes.

    If the UK content got the same focus as DE content I’d be playing that more.

    To be fair, I am not supprise at all that lots of people picked Germany due to the amount of routes it has compare to the U.S. I orignally was going to pick Germany too (since I have all of them) but I decided to go with the U.S. instead.

    Routes and engines from Germany are my favorite, I like fast freight.

    I'm fairly catholic in my choice of routes. If I have a preference it would be for American/ Canadian freight. I also enjoy the older British routes, TVL and NTP. And the German routes are well modeled, if a little generic, with a sameness about the scenery, but the locos are fun to drive.

    I personally prefer UK routes but I did play a lot of the German routes before the PS5 upgrade (without LZB and PZB).
    I also did LIRR and PenCor a bit but on PenCor I didn't use the loco or cab car, only the MP36PH-3C. I didn't do much freight at all but will get into doing them at some point.

    I’m fairly eclectic, but would be more interested to know which are the most popular routes.
    One’s who’s gameplay and graphics keep people going back to them.
    For example Sandpatch has a replay-ability which Oakville & Cane Creek lack.

    (Just off to replay Sehs since I spent the day in London yesterday, but sadly no trainbow spotted.)

    Germany….. now the only reason for this as there are route layers etc. If the uk had more modern routes that layered with more locos that layered I’d snap them all up. The issue is the uk content is across so many decades nothing really connects

    Over time I drive the three main countries about equally and a bit of the single route countries too for good measure, of which LGV is my most used because it’s ace. At the moment the British content is taking a bit of a back seat but I know that will change when the next route comes out. Cathcart didn’t hold my attention for very long but I know I’ll go back to it soon as well. I like to drive a bit of everything so I flit between all the routes I have and that has grown to be a good number of routes now.

    German content overall has a distinct advantage by having far more locos available per route making for a far more complete experience. So that is were I spend most of my time.

    I haven't selected a choice in your poll because what attracts me are switching/shunting jobs regardless of where they occur.
