    Can you add this route? That includes Amtrak’s and Metro-North Railroad’s P32AC-DM with Amfleets and Shoreliners (All Shoreliner versions). This route is from both New York’s Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal to Albany-Rensselaer next to the Hudson River. The Hudson River is a beautiful river and I can’t wait to see it in Train Simulator 2019!

    Agreed! I would love this with the Hudson Line.

    And PLEASE do this for TS and NOT TSW! I'd like to see more than just Grand Central to Yonkers or Croton-Harmon and that's what you'd probably get if they made this for TSW. Now that TS is in 64 bit, they could easily make the whole line from NYC to Albany. I'd love to have the Hudson line and be able to make a full Amtrak Empire Service run. If they could make Marseille to Lyon, they can make this.

    I'm guessing it will get done to Croton-Harmon which is approximately 35 miles.

    If it's done in TSW. I'd rather see it in TS so we can have a chance at getting the whole NYC to Albany route, or at least the entire Hudson Line from NYC to Poughkeepsie.

    Hopefully, but so far the American routes have been getting shorter and shorter. So I don't have much hope for it to go that far. Even if it goes to Croton-Harmon, and expansion can get done.

    They should have an Amtrak P32 and either M7 or M3 cars for local services on the Hudson Line. You can use the existing Metro North P32 DLC for trains to Poughkeepsie.

    I think if they do it in TS, it will go to Poughkeepsie at least. If they do it in TSW however, we'll only get as far as Croton Harmon at the most.

    Yeah, your right. TSW hasn't had routes over 40 miles yet, so it would make sense to have it go to Poughkeepsie since there have been long American Routes. I hope it gets as much or similar effort as Marias Pass considering it's the longest American route in the game.
