    Thanks for the attention in the Rivet NewsLetter for my guide. I really feel appreciated by that.

    Hi Jasper,

    Thank you for your kind comments. I did not release the direct link to google drive on purpose. This link will no longer work if I create an update. The second reason is that I would like all people downloading my stuff to subscribe to a newsletter, so I have better opportunities to inform about updates.

    Also, while scanning for this guide you would miss the other guides and tools I created. Most of them will be updated regularly and I definitely will pay some attention to the signalling tutorial once it is available.

    Wow, thanks for creating such a detailed guide - great stuff! I just had a brief look at it, but I'm more than pleased with what I saw. We're currently working on a signal tutorial video, I'll send you the link once it's finished, so that you can add it into the guide if you want to.

    Allow myself to add the link to the proper document here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1hTy...Pr_FML8Ij/view


    Just as a disclaimer: This isn't an official Rivet Games document, if you have any questions or problems please use this forum or send us an email to [email protected]!

    Hello and thank you. We are still making adjustments on the route and yes, we realise there is a timetable issue. We will be adding a fix for that in the next update.

    It may be nice to know for this forum as well, that I created a Route Guide for Arosa Linie. It is additional to the official manual and to the TSW2 Starters Guide. You can download these guides here:

    Navigate from here to the TSW page.

    Thanks for this update. I updated my review. The good news is that I still recommend the route.

    Chur is not a very big city and when I visited it, it was very quiet there. Still, you would hear some traffic noise especially along the train route, which is one of the more busy roads in Chur. For me it is not that disturbing, there also are no pedestrians along the streets and so on. I agree the timetable is not very good, I just ignore it and even do not look at it. Also< I think some small improvements on the distant mountains could be possible.

    In general< I still like the routed,despite my list of wishes and I am looking forward to more Swiss routes. To be honest my major disappointment is the announcement of a UK route at the DTG backlog as the next Rivet route.

    Regarding the first point. I don’t believe this is fully fixed. I have had 2 trains come up the hill without any lights on so far.

    As for the raildriver support. I’m afraid the best I can say is it’s better than nothing. The throttle handling is awful and you can’t select 3.5 at all as it’s on the same notch 7 as 3.3. It is also very imprecise, this is not an issue I’ve experienced on other trains. There are a lot of other issues such as randomly operating wipers these are listed in detail on the DTG forum, I added my feedback there.

    After the first update I believe Arosa Linie is becoming what it should have been from the get-go. The biggest issue for me is still the broken timetable, so hopefully this will be prioritised in the next update. I've encountered ocassions where distant signal indicated a clear aspect, but the following main signal showing a stop aspect, resulting in a SPAD. This has happened travelling in both directions on the line. One other thing I would note is the absence of ambient audio. Chur is a city, yet it is completely devoid of any audio activity and so is basically the entire route. Strolling around stations feels very weird without at least some birds chirping in the background or tree canopies hustling. Lastly, the coaches themselves sound very unrealistic at low speeds, so hopefully you can improve that aspect as well.

    Good job on the first update!

    After releasing the first patch, we've put everything into this first update for Arosa, which is now live on all platforms. Please be aware, that it might take up to 48 hours before the update appears. Please wait those 48 hours before contacting the customer support.
    The update itself will be installed automatically, you have nothing to do.


    Official patchnotes for the Arosa Linie update are:
    • Fixed instances where AI locomotive operate without Headlights and passenger cabin lighting.
    • Changed camera headout angle to be 180 degrees so players are able to look backwards.
    • Driver Camera now changes height when seat height is changed.
    • The AI no longer runs the RhB GE 4/4 II with the pantograph down after the player gives up the controls.
    • Throttle notches now display correctly on the HUD.
    • Updated the Livery Designer so that when selecting the Rhb Ge 4/4 II, the decals are now visible on the left and right side of the loco.
    • Rocks no longer float in the air when a tile is not rendered due to LOD/Distance
    • Updated the final coupling task so that you are no longer required to wait for the train to pass.


    Please consider updating your Steam review if you think that the update has improved the Arosa Linie and we've done a good job with it. Thank you!


    We'll continue working on the Arosa Linie after this update, so we would love to still hear your feedback for a second update!

    Another unbelievable response. “think there are plenty of things to enjoy in the Swiss mountains”. If I wanted to enjoy the views of the Swiss mountains I could just go on You Tube and find hundreds.

    Instead of replying with utter trash explain how you got the timetable so wrong in the first place. Why wasn’t it checked with the real life timetable or did you just make your own times up? How come if the game was tested nobody spotted it is impossible to adhere to the timetable? When will the update for correcting the timetable be made available given the first update took a month? This will mean people have purchased a train simulator where it’s impossible to get anywhere near the timings and going to wait 2 months at least for you to correct it.

    Hi Stephen Bosley ,

    we're really sorry that you feel this way and can totally understand. We promise we'll improve with the next route - not least because of your feedback. We hope that you still can enjoy the route, we think there are plenty of things to enjoy in the Swiss mountains.

    After launch, our devteam went right behind their desks and continued working on updates. We published a hotfix for the derailment problem we had, improving gameplay significantly. We've always communicated, that the timetable won't be patched in the first update, right above your post was someone asking about that.

    Let's not forget, updating on Train Sim World is something different that it was with Train Simulator, due to the fact that we not only need to ship it to Steam, but to Sony & Microsoft as well. And we want the update to be available for everyone at the same time, anything else would be unfair we think.

    Quite honestly it’s an absolute disgrace. Your purchase a route where it is impossible to run to time because the timetable is completely wrong. You wait a month for an update to discover the timetable hasn’t been done and just told it would be in another update but not told when. There is no excuse whatsoever for this and the timetable should have been correct at launch and not for you to be told about it by somebody who posted the actual timetable without difficulty. What did you do just make the times up?
