    The route of the Downeaster is taken all the way from the lights of the city in Boston to the coast of Brunswick Maine. This route would be a great addition to the TSW collection since it features Commuter trains(MBTA), Regional trains(Downeaster), and freight operations(Pan Am). The route also feature breath taking scenery at the Scarborough marsh near Portland. The line has been around since the early 1900's and uses much of the original line,with track upgrades obviously. This route would also make the first ever route to utilize a NPCU (Converted F-40). So in the end I believe that the line from Boston to Brunswick would make a great addition to the TSW collection

    Amtrak Downeastern goes through Durham New Hampshire it stops right by the wintmore center home of the Unh wildecats if Amtrak Downeastern ever becomes a Dlc route for train sim World then they’ll have to add a college like campus onto your in one of the New Hampshire towns.

    That is a very isolated line but also very scenic. Perfect for those who like quaint and peaceful drives. Like me!

    The only problem with a route like this is licensing issues with Pan Am. The Portland Terminal route for TS20** was taken down because of this. This would also prohibit other versions of this route to be produced (such as a 50s version with the B&M and MEC railroads).
