    this route is pretty much self explanatory.. 170 miles of double train mainline from Needles, CA to Barstow, CA

    Average 60+ trains a day.. Amtrak passenger service reaching up to 90mph.. Freight operations 70mph (manifest, autorack and intermodal)





    i definitely believe that this should be the next modern US route for TS19

    I would like to see this as well but being outside the US the hopes are they will be able to do two versions like they did for the Raton Pass.

    I would love to see this route come to Train Simulator, I drove somewhat parallel to the Needles Sub when my family and I took a rod trip to Williams AZ.

    The same way as they did with the Raton Pass route

    If you are referring to Marias Pass and Stevens Pass and other content with BNSF they were made before BNSF imposed a licensing restriction there was nothing DTG could do about that.

    Oh Heck Yeah!!!!!!!!! We need this. BNSF in TS2019!!!! Lots of freight and the Amtrak Southwest Chief. Also, the Barstow Yard could be included. I'd also like to see the Seligman Sub from Needles to Flagstaff. The routes could maybe have ATSF diesels as well, and we need ATSF #3751 as DLC.

    This would be really cool, and people could do something like they did with Marias Pass and the Hi-Line by connecting the Needles Sub to Cajon Pass! Though, they would need to get around the BNSF restriction but Michael Newbury already said how they could, so I would just be regurgitating information if I explained that.
