So far this week we have announced the West Somerset Railway and Berlin-Wittenberg both coming soon to Train Simulator. Want more? Okay, also currently in production is this beauty. Anyone think they know where it is?

Interesting....if it isn't the new part of WCML, I'd say KGX - PBO....could be why RSC are developing a 321? FCC? :o

I'd love it to be KGX-PBO. I really would, but I doubt it. It seems more likely this is Ross' new WCML

Why KGX - PBO? I was thinking Keith Ross might be working south, maybe it's Trent Valley? I take your point on the FCC 377, but I assumed that this was because it's an easy reskin of the London to Brighton one. And 321s are to be seen on the WCML. So actually, maybe it's the south end of the WCML?

The track spacing looks very ECML like to me. Not sure there are any other electrified 4 track mainlines that have such spacing?

WCML these days is all LED signals?

You can see an old style signal in the back of this shot. Looks very ECML like.

Perhaps they are finally releasing the 225 set with somewhere to run it.

Quite a tight curve. Didn't think ECML had any corners ;-)

And no / very subtle SE ??

Unlikely though. If we do get a bit of the southern ECML, it will be KX to Cambridge with 321s on all services. :D

The OHLE is a give away for more modern electrification than the WCML, ECML uses headspan everywhere rather than wide spaced gantries on four track. Also, the track is grouped slow fast fast slow whereas most four track on the WCML is fast fast slow slow.

Definitly think it's ECML. Mk3 overhead so it's not the southern part of the WCML. Track spacing and signal/AWS layout is for Slow-Fast-Fast-Slow grouping, which is rare other than on the ECML. Rules out MML. Some on FB are wishfully suggesting Ipswich to Norwich, yet clearly it's not as that would be 2 track. Not aware of any sections like this north of Weaver Junction on the WCML, and it would have to be to have Mk3 catenary.

It's not 'WCML over Shap' the track texture and OLE is the wrong type. Also the curve has not been given SE proving that this is not Keith's route. Lastly no partner program logo in corner, so this must be an in-house build. I'm also thinking that it is some part of the ECML or a small section of Old Linslade.

I think I've nailed it...ECML between Hatfield and Welham Green. Signal gantry is visible on Google Earth...
