    Default East Midlands Coal Route Release.

    Says it all really another less than stellar release.

    Agree Rich and only 25 miles in length, scandalous.

    Borderline sale item, if that.

    I do like Alan Thomson's review style, though!

    Maybe a route that would have been better suited to TSW where you can keep it going rather than A >>> B >>> It's all over.

    Even over at the Twaddlies, coming in for a fair bit of flak - no better than an average freeware route!

    Conspiracy theorists are out saying that DTG are releasing this rubbish to get users to obtain TSW2020, this layout has taken Creative Rail nearly 3 years to construct, they actually come from North Nottinghamshire in real life, and yet last year there was an unconfirmed rumour that CR were considering making something for TSW, if this is their standard of output, then, no thanks......

    Cheerz. Steve.

    Steve: It doesn't make sense for DTG to release junk for TS2000 and expect user's to move up to TW2020! TW has not inspired to fans to embrace it for many reasons. TS2020 is now a zombie that has been dying for several years and DTG will eventually give up the ghost. Time for DTG to move on to some other kind of simulatiom.

    Yeah, but, what kind of simulation, Rich, they've already done fishing, but, they pulled the plug on flying, they are light years behind the bus and truck simulators, which is where the fanbase is, if they turned their hand to GOAT simulator they wouldn't make enough financial return on their production investment from just a few niche fans, the F1 and Rally car arcade games are already popular with other gaming companies they wouldn't be able to break into that market, they certainly don't have the financial clout to take on the likes of Sony and Ubisoft, etc, they'll just have to stay where they are for the time being......

    Golf?! Or maybe football (as in soccer) management...

    Was watching a bit more of Tomo's review. That Sentinel shunter cab looks like something out of Trainz UTC, in fact that's an insult to Trainz. Wouldn't be surprised if this DLC got pulled particularly as it looks like you have to buy the stock pack separately if you don't own the items.

    Unfortunately most of the train sims seem to be past their sell by date at this point, I persist with Trainz Surveyor as I like the mental exercise that building routes offers, even if the actual experience driving them isn't that great. But in terms of entertainment, the truck sims are indeed way ahead of the market.

    Steve, they would even make a pigs earhole of goatsim.

    They would probably fill it with sheep.
