Understandably it appears that DTG have consciously avoided creating the lines into the London Termini of Marylebone, Euston and Fenchurch Street, as there are significant LT/DLR assets to create, so this is welcome news.

Dont think it has anything to do with assets as majority of new routes need assets created anyway. The NLL shares its track with LT between Gunnersbry and Richmond. Also DTG done the DLR tracks around Stratford and modeled the stratford DLR station pretty well giving its awkward shape

Assets also include rolling stock.

Whilst I am sure your comments were tongue in cheek Richard and you have since edited them (the joys of quoting) I think in light of the fact that JT have released one expansion to the Western Mainlines and a second one is on the way it was a valid question as to whether or not this would be a further expansion. However, If I am told it isn't as was the response then that's the end of that, I am not one to argue the point!!

dumpadillo wrote:Why is everybody getting so excited by this annoncement. There already exists an excellent route covering Marylebone to Birmingham and onto Kidderminster plus London Underground lines by Photon. All it needs is some tidying up and some new scenarios and it is free!!
In my case, JT's / almark's new offering is likely to be significantly cheaper than buying:

RSC London to Brighton
RSC Portsmouth Direct Line
RSC Isle of Wight
RSC Settle and Carlisle
RSC Riviera Line
JT Scottish ECML
JT Newcastle - York Modern
JT Bristol to Avonmouth
JT Bristol to Exeter
Thomson Edinburgh to Glasgow
Thomson GARL

(deleted the payware requirements that I do have... although in fairness I also have my eye on L-B just for the bundled scenarios for my JT Advanced diesel fleet)

So thanks, almark and JT - I'll put this on my list, as not only am I a fan of the 68 and of JT's 67, but I live not too far off this route!

Looking forwards to this route, always love driving a JT route and these shots show the standards are as high as ever.

I just hope there isnt the sheer amount of trees like there was on Western Mainlines- I had to delete hundreds of trees to get a decent frame rate, especially on leaving Oxford- was a slideshow until I got a 'chopping!

The near trees are no further than 50M from the track and each one is scaled to a realistic size where appropriate,in the hope that it provides realistic embankments and cuttings :)

I too will buy this route (Gerrards +) being my local. I also would have loved it to be part of WM but I understand and respect the decision of the author. As this route and WM originated from the same hand, might I hope they have the same start point ? For a potential join ?
Looking forward regardless. Cheers.

Ben Garfirth would need to answer that but I have a feeling he said no (though I am not certain).
