Missed opportunity IMHO

RSC already have an A3, A4 and A1 model, plus the Deltic...
40 is available from JT

The route dated around the steam - diesel handover would be absolutely amazing. One modern electric commuter / express route from a capital city terminus is rather like another, if you ask me. I'd view ECML as rather flat and boring - unless you intend to thrash the hell out whatever you are driving.

Take down the wires and package with the Deltic and A4 ;-)

We will have five London termini, all of which will be for current / recent operations ! What a waste, when you consider the unparalleled historical railway significance of those locations...

But a steam/diesel era route would be far more difficult to research, involve much more work and track, and therefore probably have to be shorter. I also know from a conversation I had with Paul Jackson years ago that modern era out-sells older stuff by such a wide margin that no business can ignore it.

I can easily understand that... Especially with research and much more complex track layouts

But does 5 out of 5 becomes a bit tedious???

The heritage value of just Paddington, Euston* and Kings Cross alone should warrant at least one of these as steam era routes.
Also, unlike modern routes, you would suspect a wider than UK market for a late steam era Kings Cross route bundled with the A3 & A4 pacifics...

Maybe someone will do just that and pop it on the Workshop.

Well that gave me a laugh.

On topic though I'm glad this route is being developed as Peterborough is one of the stations I use most (My most local station is March).

Now that is rather interesting.... What is the distance between those points? 80miles odd maybe? And I wonder if they will extend it further to like Doncastor or something cool.... Either way, from the screenshot it looks modern era, HST's, 90+Mk4+DVT's and of course the local trains too... I can't imagine a long distance journey would be any fun as it's just one straight run from London to Peterborough...

Oh well, let's hope it's good quality

.

That takes it up to where Creativerail are starting from then. Creativerail are going up to York from Peterborough. JT take it up to Newcastle from York and there are rumors that JT are building Newcastle to Edinburgh. On top of this there might be a SECML part two which will take it up to Aberdeen so over the next couple of years we might beable to drive London to Aberdeen.

As much as I doubt it, really hope this comes with a 225. Can't really see the point of the route without the 225

Is it true that RSC's map of the UK has no detail in the middle bit at all except for the legend "Here be Dragons"? :P

I'm 99.9% certain that's Ben Laws' model which has been sitting semi-built for quite some time :)

Looking forward to this pack, even if as others have said it would be an incredible route to have set in the 1920s - 1940s

So we can look forward to the battle of the 90/91's.... With AP in one corner, and Ben Laws/RSC in the other... Place your bets and take your seats.... :drinking:

The 90's have only been used at times of 91 shotages when the locos were being rebuilt from 910xx to 911xx.
Quite rare to see a 90 on the ECML on a East Coast service.

I will get the 91 & Mk4's to run over WCML-N :D
Something I will be doing in real life on Saturday :)
