    I would like to see Amtrak's Philadelphia-Harrisburg Line (Keystone Corridor) in Train Simulator. Both Amtrak and Septa trains run on this line between Philly and Harrisburg. Additionally, Norfolk Southern has trackage rights over the entire line.

    All the photos below were taken on this proposed line.

    It will be great if they also add the Strasburg Railroad to the route.

    What engines for the route? I'd like to suggest an NS ET44AC, ES40DC, C40-9W, or SD80ACU for heavy freights, a 3GS21B Genset, GP38-2 or GP60, and the Amtrak Acela, plus a SEPTA engine. The Strasburg Line is needed too.

    For locos, I was thinking the NS ET44AC, NS SD70ACU, NS GP40-2, the ACS-64 in Amtrak and Septa liveries, and Amtrak's Metroliner Cab Car.

    The first picture link is of two NS 6-axle high horsepower road switchers leading an intermodal/TOFC train.
