The route (at first at least) has been ridiculously unstable to use for scenario editing, and speaking of scenarios, can become a nightmare to make given its lack of portals to use.

But, living beside the mainline myself, it feels a rather homely route to drive on, and one of my favourite. For driving, I'll always seem to return to it.

To me, my pros and cons for this route are separated partly by whether you make scenarios for this route, or just drive them.

Fantastic Route, 1 of mah most played routes.
Ah have been on this line quite a few times, plus Ah live near it. Would go on it more, but train tickets are too expensive.

Would be cool if they extend it thro to Eastbourne or Ore (Hastings) maybe even Ashford, have a complete route there.
Also add some Gatwick Express trains. like the new Class 387 or the Class 460.

Class 377 in mah opinion is 1 of the best EMU's, sure the seats are uncomfortable, but driving wise fast braking and accelaration.

It's a must buy (not for £25 of course. During sales).

L2B is a Love/Hate thing for me, its diabolically optimised, unstable in editor and has a number of corners cut and obvious bugs that have been ignored for years ... However I still love it and I still get good use out of it two years after purchase. dont get me wrong L2B is an addiction. If you want to stock it properly will cost you dearly. If you are interested in Blue or Sector eras Bringing the route up to prototypicality will cost you well over £200 in first and third party DLC. L2B will cost less if you want to use the route in its modern guise but stock is poorly catered for so you may find yourself somewhat limited. ... The route is well catered for in workshop especially if you have invested in stock.

Cons -
*poor optimisation
*chronic lack of portals
*Very unstable in editor, it crashed a lot but there are workarounds if you dont mind delving into the core files
*massive joined up thinking fails, little things like the missing scenic detail at Hove station kill a whole load of operation possibilites.
*Some inexplicable routing bugs
*randomly unresponsive platform markers
*The suicidal zombie pooped pants passengers problem is an epidemic on this route.

Pros - *it just is, trust me buy it and see for yourself

Still one of my top ten favorite routes, London to Brighton is awesome and worth every penny, imagine what it would have been like if some care, attention and joined-up thinking had gone into its development.

Great route and train. Many hours of driving in store. Also, if you have some other addons from an external developer there may be some more scenarios, I found this with the Voyager. Overall, great DLC bit expensive but if you buy in a sale then it's an alright price.

A busy route with many stops, many scenarios and great workshop content. The included scenarios are lacking in AI however.

A stunning route with the Class 377/5. NOTE: If you have the Class 170 you will automatically get a Southern Class 171. This great route allows you to whizz past beautiful scenery at 90mph (140kph).

A very very very fun route. Has a diverse collection of scenery. In some places, lag can be an issue, so play around with the video settings until you find the optimal mix. I recommend this route to all railfans!

GOAT route. With or without the new S. London network extension, it's ridiculously enjoyable and easy, with speed limits around 80-90mph for the most of it, and the feature of a short 50-mile, high-use route. I'd recommend it with the other Southern/Thameslink/SWT train DLCs when they're on sale.

I'd recommend this DLC only IF you get it as part of a package and you have the South London Network as they can be patched together to make one huge and very enjoyable area. This patch updates a couple of areas and brings over some better textures from the SLN to the L2B to make it look much better.
