    Because you're thinking of the Metroliner cabcar, which only exists as a private modification to an Amfleet, and is therefore not available.

    These is no "mod" - The Metroliner CabCar driving coach is not available in TS2021.
    The coaches in the NY-NH are just coaches

    Unfortunately no, but there are cabcars available, but with no black or yellow stripes.

    If you had one of the other Cab Cars - like from Metro North you could try that with the ACS-64

    In the game you can run what you want - you are not restricted by what happens in real life
    If you want to drive both ways put a second loco on the rear
