    Local lines for me - Highland Main Line, Far North/Kyle lines and Aberdeen - Inverness.

    I would have to say a route from London St Pancras international to Kingsbury EMR. Which could then be combined with a new game in the 'simulator' series, entitled Gas Axe simulator which allows the player to consign those nasty reusable Eurostar trains to lots of little bits of scrap metal. And on that note I shall get my coat and call TAXI!!!!!!
    :lol:

    The Kyle line already exists in TS2018 :)

    I wasn't aware, but I've now found it on Just Trains. Thanks for pointing that out :)

    LTS in the 80s or 90s for me. Spent my time as a youth travelling on that.
    I'm hoping for a Crossrail extension to the existing GEML/GWR lines including 345s.

    Incidentally, for EMU fans, Armstrong Powerhouse/Waggonz will shortly be releasing a 314/315 pack which will finish off the GEML route nicely.

    For me, Leeds to Morcambe with Neville Hill, Ilkley, Bradford FS and Rhylstone included.

    I'd go for the South Eastern Mainline as far as Dover (including the Folkestone Harbour branch). It had boat-train traffic in the days before the Chunnel and Eurostar.

    I think it's likely that DTG will put out a further section of the WCML now they've got a partnership with Virgin West Coast. They've released the APT and updated the Voyager and Pendos recently. It seems pretty good business sense to stimulate further sales in those trains by producing a new section of track to run them on. My money would be on Crewe to Preston. There's a freeware WCML from Euston to Birmingham that's very good but you need a lot of other DLC for it to work properly. A rumour did appear a few days back that DTG are about to release London Euston to Birmingham themselves but add salt to that one.

    I would like to see more networks rather than single routes. I enjoy the Weardale network and the map where the South london network and others have been patched together.
    Shame it is difficult to find scenarios for the latter.

    There's a chap called "Danny" in the Workshop who patches London and South East routes together. Some is work in progress but they're pretty good.

    I also recommend "backdatedtrainsim.weebly.com" he's done an LT version of the East London Line, a blue era North London Line (including Broad Street and North Woolwich) and the Hastings Branch, again really high standard and free (though I generally donate a few pounds to say thank you).

    Sounds like they may be your sort of thing.

    I have to agree with the first reply to this thread, more Scottish routes with a higher standard of detail. Would love to see the Highland Main Line modelled from Stirling or Perth to Inverness.
