Since the CRR route is in the Production Stage of the roadmap.

Plus many people here are throwing out suggestions for the Cane Creek Branch. So, I might as well think of ideas about some loco add-ons for this route in the near future (never too early to think about this right?). SD45-2 Built: Nov. 1972, Feb. 1974 (2 batches) Units: 18 The most commonly used Dash 2 model in the fleet. While CRR does have the SD45 variant, the SD45-2 was more successful by design (And the only EMD Dash 2 before the Seaboard System). U36C Built: Oct. 1971 Units: 7 The only units that were made by GE. And the most powerful "Universal" type Locomotives before the Dash 7s. Like the SD45-2's above, they can be used for mainline operations. As well as doing Coal runs when possible. And since it's already in TS1, it shouldn't be too hard to replicate (right?). Switchers And as an option, for those that wants it, is switching activities for yards and sidings. It seems CRR has a few Switchers in the roster. They mostly got SW7s (6 units), and NW2s (5 from AN). Plus one NW3 (from GN). Mostly old school switchers (Before the early 1980s), but should fit nicely to the route. If not, then for an alternative loco would be a GP7. As the GP7s can do both the local and switching runs. And that's my idea for future locos, for a future route. And you can correct me if I'm wrong in some spots if I did some, as I've done some minimal research when I was typing this. But hopefully, you have a good read. And don't hesitate to comment as well. Note: And yes I'm spitballing here with this suggestion since we don't know what kind of era this route is gonna represent in TSW2. Yet. While at it, I did a post about some extra F-Units Clinchfield has (if some are interested). As well as Blacknred's post about the GP7s and a more detailed U36C. Update: The Sep. 29th roadmap got changed. And the route will have the actual SD40. Instead of the SD40-2. Update2: CRR Route is now upcoming after a historic article was released on Feb. 18th. Update3: added in a poll after the locomotive article on March 10th. (2 units maxed pre-vote.) -The SD45 vote is counted with the SD45-2 in the poll.
