    Well spotted!
    That was totally unexpected, I'm not dreaming am I? I'd pretty much given up on the updated version ever appearing.

    A bit difficult to find as they've got it under 'New Releases' https://store.trainzportal.com/colle...es-loop-line-1

    But wow! - that certainly was unexpected. I thought it was a long forgotten hope that we would ever see it.

    I just downloaded it and then I couldn't find it in the Routes and Sessions menu. I did find it eventually, but what took me so long?

    The route is called Loop Line instead of the Potteries Loop Line as it is in the Content Store.

    I took a quick look at it, but I need to do some more exploring when I get a chance.

    Hi All
    We will be properly announcing it later this week with our newsletter; right now it's in PreviewPass for the next 2 weeks for Gold Membership subscribers and will then be fully available for purchase after that.

    It's been a long few years (I believe about 5-7 years now?) working with the creators to get it ready for release (including many, many hours of testing sessions, tweaking, and more), but I'm certain everyone involved is very happy to see it ready for everyone to enjoy. I know I spent a good couple of hours last night driving the Sneyd no 3 garratt around

    Regards
    Zec Murphy

    All loaded in just fine, but like John I couldn't find it at first because I was looking for 'Potteries Loop Line'. It's also disappointing to see it under Region 'Custom' instead of 'UK' or 'Great Britain'. Any particular reason for the name and region change, - or is it some kind of marketing thing?

    I'm certainly glad to see PLL released at last though and thanks very much to everyone who was involved in bringing it through to being a retail release.

    This is excellent news. I will be downloading as soon as it is available as a stand-alone purchase. Many thanks to everyone involved in making and upgrading the route.

    A really exciting, if overdue, development. Congratulations to AndrewH and all the others involved. It really is a splendid route illustrating the old potteries and other industries in the Stoke area. It seems to operate well in TRS+, build 117297

    Spotted it purely by chance, it still includes the signal box sessions. Which i always enjoyed in the original.

    There is no name change: the latest version prior to this was already named "Loop Line".

    In my Content store I absolutely have a "Potteries Loop Line" - It would not download for past 2 days but just tried it again and it downloaded as you can see.

    But.. that is in Store Title ONLY. The Route itself is in fact simply: "Loop Line" (content manager, etc)

    Specs: Had a top of line gamer, best specs, but no more. My wife stuck a butterknife in the powersupply.

    I didn't know that, - my original version of PLL is the one I purchased two years ago.

    First version was 2014, i believe.

    They still have the site up with the extra free downloads.

    No idea if they work in TRS22, but still good of them to maintain the site.

    It is the same route as was being developed for TANE and it had the confusing name difference then too. Great to see it be released at last. I assume it is greatly improved for TRS19 and TRS22. As I remember the scenery was pretty sparse.

    The last version is for TS12 SP1 and is dated 7-2-2016 (note that the file name is "Loop_Line_Full_Route_SP1.cdp" and not "Potteries..."). This version is :17, the new one is :63!
    Note that the official site still states: "We are working on making PLL compatible with T:ANE and will update the site with more news once this is available."
