  • Leeds to York (via crossgates)

    Hello! This is my first suggestion on the rivet forums and today I will be suggesting the Leeds to York route!
    This route is around 25 miles long and operators which you'll find on the route are crosscountry, trans-pennine express and Northern.
    The top speed of this route is 100mph which is achieved between Church Fenton and The approach to York.

    The route will have 8 stations which are:

    Cross gates


    East Garforth


    Church Fenton

    Ulleskelf, get to zoom past at 100mph (no services on this route will stop here, maybe in a scenario you could)

    From mml, a emt hst can be stationary ai in neville hill depot.
    Also from mml, the 158 can be reliveried to a Northern one and will do Hull to Halifax services.

    Railtours can be made for ntp owners, York to Leeds on a 47/45/40/37 calling at Garforth.
    LMS Jubliee (from wcss or just sos) tour from Leeds to York calling at church fenton.

    Why this route?

    We haven't had a Yorkshire route for a long time and not one modern, so it would be brilliant to have this dlc included in TSW3
    Thanks for reading

    An 82 or 91 or even an 800 would be nice.

      They would be very nice but they don't operate services from Leeds to York (Leeds to York is currently half electrified anyway)
      The only services they would do will be neville hill to Leeds and I think a couple times a day an 800 goes from Leeds through this line onto the ecml near sherburn-in-elmet
