Hello all,

Having looked at www.alanthomsonsim.com, I found that the XC Route (also known as Birmingham - Bristol) is apparently being "enhanced" and this route, which is "in development" according to the website, will include the Cotswold Line.
Here is the image which is being shown on the website homepage:



The text in gold is the enhanced section. I suppose you could also call this a route extension, as it will include the full 86-mile long Cotswold Line. Hereford is already included in the route at the moment.
Personally, as the Cotswold Line is my local line, I am looking forward to this very much. I can't wait for it to be released, even if a BETA is released and there is little scenery!
I have decided to put this on the forums just in case anyone who is working on the route can share anything and for people to share their thoughts on it.
I asked on Alan Thomson's Twitch stream last week (as I write this) if he knew of a release date, but he said that he didn't know as the route is currently a Work In Progress.

Looking forward to the Cotswold Line! Will be a nice opportunity for some scenarios. Paddington - Hereford runs will be possible utilising Western Mainlines and splitting the scenario at Oxford.

Yep! I'm personally very excited for this route for this purpose. I don't have Western Mainlines, so I will have to save up a lot to first buy all of the requirements for the XC route before buying it! :)

Apologies for restarting this thread, but:
I was wondering if anyone knew anything about this new route. I would like, preferably, to be able to see at least one in-progress picture!


Thanks,

-Peter

Sorry to once again restart this thread, but I have decided that I'm going to make a representation of the Cotswold Line in Train Sim. I'm starting with Kingham station (my local station) and then I'll extend to Oxford before working back the other way to at least Moreton-in-Marsh. I am going to start a new thread on the forums (under this same sub-forum) with updates of the route, including requirements, "developer diaries", and the like. :D Full information will be in the other thread.

Thanks,

-Peter
