Fantastic route, one of my most played routes.

Would be cool if they extend it through to Eastbourne or Ore (Hastings) maybe even to Ashford, have a complete route there.

Class 377's in my opinion is one of the best EMU's, I just wish the 387's were actually different, sure the seats may be uncomfortable, but driving wise fast braking and acceleration.

It's a must buy; not for £25 of course, during sales.

Pros:
Over 50 Miles
Easiest train to re-skin - Class 377
Has most scenarios on Workshop - Most popular
Perfect route for semi-fast, fast and slow routes.

Cons:
Track at West Croydon has no portal, plus the direction is incorrect after Switch track from Selhurst/Norwood Junction.
No pre-load for Class 450 - Easy fix
Out dated Gatwick Airport and Brighton

Good route, perhaps getting a little old but still well detailed and fairly long. It has a nice run in to London Victoria for stopping services and the full mainline for expresses.

Class 377 is OK- nice cab view but the passenger view is pretty bad. Also, there is a glitch with the doors in the 2nd carrige appearing open when you're more than 100m or so away in free cam mode. This is annoying as it would be easy for DTG to fix, but of course they haven't.

I recommend buying it with the class 319 in the Commuter Europe Collection, for £5 extra it comes with the class 319- one of my favourite locos- and also Munich to Ausberg, the DB BR423 and the Southern 421- also with scenarios for London to Brighton

I absolutely love this route. I've had it so long that it has become one of my 5 favourite routes. The Class 377 is awesome [especially with the AP 375/377 sound pack] and I love driving the full Victoria to Brighton run. My only gripe with this route is the total lack of variety in Ai on the default scenarios.

My favourite station would be, well do I really have to say it. Clapham Junction.

I think this is a must have route for train sim. This is my favorite UK route for train sim to date.
