    the thing about the e60s is their isn't any route that fits the timeline they were being used for i mean new York to Philadelphia might work but it kind of to modern for the e60s

    Sherman Hill has locomotives that range from the 40's to modern times, The Horseshoe curve, being set in the PRR era, has had Norfolk Southern DLC for it. The Miami Palm Beach Route has an Amtrak E8 and Seaboard U36B DLC for it despite being set in modern times. Only thing preventing the New York to Philadelphia from getting any DLC I believe is its age, as the route is quite old.

    The Rio Grande hasn't been around since 1988 (Or 1996, as the Rio Grande bought the SP but used the Southern Pacific name after the purchase.)

    They could release the E60 as an addon for the New York to New Haven section of the NEC as that route is more recent (compared to the original NEC route) and it would still fit in well as Reppo had released the New Haven E33 as an addon to that route, being a 1950's loco on a route set in modern times.
