    A C&NW route would be cool to have. I definitely want to see more North American "fallen flag" routes. The CRR route is a good starting point.

    The CNW was acquired by the UP in 1995, so 1996 makes no sense.....

    Ok, and I know that but C&NW owned some Dash9-44W where they started to build it in 1993 so I don't really se a problem, plus is a dlc and the route can be make in 1994 but anyways I don't see anyproblem if it was set in 1996, because how much Dash9-44W you think that the CNW owned in 1994?

    I would like to see the CNW in the upper peninsula hauling iron ore with the big alcos. The era set in the 1960's.

    To expand on the routing above, this map shows CNWs trackage, and its current owners
    CNW Map.png
    The solid black lines are owned by the Union Pacific, the green lines were owned by the Dakota, Minnesota, and Eastern Railroad, before being acquired the Canadian Pacifc. The blue lines are owned by other railroads. The dotted black lines are all abandoned.

    At its height the CNW had over 12,000 miles of track, but that dwindled down to 5,000 by 1995.
