This route provides an extension to the ECML: London to Peterborough route and adds additional track and scenery to Letchworth Garden City and Royston, along with the EMU sidings at Letchworth and the new flyover at Hitchin.

This extension was done after a request from a friend to include Letchworth Garden City on the ECML route so I initially decided to have a crack at that part.

After subscribing and allowing installation of the route via the Steam Workshop, the route will be listed under Quick Drive as '[DPS] East Coast Mainline - South'. A very basic quick drive has been provided with fast line paths to and from the new stations. Initially the grand plan was to add the new paths to a clone of the original ECML quick drive, but doing so (rightly) fails the workshop validation process. If the route doesn't show up after installation, all I can suggest is to unsubscribe and re-subscribe to the route, I have no control over how the route installs on to your system.

Ok great! Look forward to hearing where you’re at. If you’re as far as Hertford or even Gordon Hill, that’s a large chunk of it down.

I would provided the scenery was at a suitable intermediate point such as Gordon Hill or Hertford, I wouldn't release it where the scenery ended in the middle of nowhere. I'll take a look over the coming days and see where I am at.

I don't really mind if it is finalised or not, as it is always nice to have the freedom to update the route as and when you wish to do so. Would it be possible to release an update with the scenery you've done, kind of like a teaser of what's to come if you do finish the Hertford loop.

I still haven't finalised the route because the intention was to add scenery to the Hertford Loop. I did get some of it done and would love to complete it, i'm just not sure when.

Hi. Will this route remain as it is now, or will there be updates in the future? I'm leaning towards the former since it is over 2 years since the last update, you've probably moved onto new turf with route / scenario building now.

OK then.

Similar to when they added track and signalling to the Sheerness branch I guess, it was released later as a DLC.

Shortly after releasing this route I actually did add scenery to this route as far as Gordon Hill from the Alexandra Palace end but didn't release an update. Given that still leaves another 20 miles or so to Stevenage, i'm unlikely to add to it any time soon.

OK then. I can't think why they put the track in without the scenery...
DPSimulation  [author] Jan 16, 2019 @ 1:23pm 
Unfortunately not, it remains without scenery as per the original version.

Hi. Does this include the Hertford Loop?
