Console players probably prefer passenger lines, while there is more action than with long haul freight lines.

And TSW isn't optimised enough to handle lots of long freight trains.

With this third rail, the next UK DLC could be some of those London commuter lines DTG seems very fond of, the next German DLC the Hamburg or Berlin S-Bahn.

Those are some sharp looking rolling stock.

You might be right for the British route Edwin, but, we've already had S-Bahn Leipzig, with Rapid Transit, but, of course that might not stop them from doing another S-bahn layout, a bit boring for those of us who like German railways with a bit more variety added to it for universal appeal, I would have thought an ICE and/or a newer Siemens multiple unit might be more of a pull for customers for their next German route, we'll have to wait and see.

I'm sure the New Yorkers will enjoy this LIRR, it's a bit like the London Overground for us Brits, community train heaven.
