    cant keep up with the regular changes, would not be so bad if they left assets from previous sims alone, or is that to deter you from making routes?

    Re above, think you may be getting the announcement confused as this is Train Sim World (TSW) which uses the Unreal graphics engine, not DTG "classic" train sim aka Railworks. At the moment TSW is fully locked down by the developer and no route or even scenario creation is possible by end users.

    As regards the announcement, very mixed reaction on the forum here and elsewhere. It seems DTG are indeed applying the same style of "upgrade" path to TSW as to their existing TS in that you get the base update but any routes you don't own have still to be purchased, maybe at a discount. There is speculation the new US West Coast route may be part of the Caltrain network. However as indicated above, much disappointment that DTG still can't get an editor suite/SDK up and running or even if they're putting any effort into trying to cater for that end of the market, any more.

    I wonder if they'll ever implement steam locomotives in the game. I'll be curious to see how that works.

    What is this "journey" system? If your simply following a script that runs on then it's still a script. What may interest me is repeat play-ability. If you run out of scripts then what?

    well I gave it a try, I suppose with a bit more use ones reactions to the methods of use would get improved.
    I found it fiddly and no way of adding scenarios or editing.
    The Trans Pennine will make it a bit more attractive to UK users but for the cost of this you may as well buy an addon to TS2019.
    Poor value and quality for your money.
