I would like to send another route proposal to DTG as well as the 3rd party devs: the CSX Mountain Subdivision/B&O West End Subdivision. The CSX Mountain Subdivision/B&O West End Subdivision. Originally owned and run by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, the Mountain Sub runs 102 miles from Cumberland, MD to Grafton, WV. The route would also include the famous 17-Mile Grade from Altamont, MD to Piedmont, WV. The 17-Mile Grade reaches an altitude of over 2,600 feet with grades as steep as 2.5%! The Mountain Subdivision (originally named the West End Subdivision during the B&O days) was opened in 1852 as part of the B&O's main line. In 1904 the B&O built the Patterson Creek Cutoff to alleviate congestion in its Cumberland Yard. The cutoff line ran from McKenzie, MD to Patterson Creek, WV, providing a bypass of the yard for coal trains moving between Keyser and Brunswick, MD. During the 1970's, ownership of the subdivision passed from the B&O to the Chessie System, which closed the Patterson Creek Cutoff. The Chessie System was eventually merged into CSX in the early 1980's. At its east end, the Mountain Subdivision becomes the Cumberland Terminal Subdivision at Beall Street. It junctions the Thomas Subdivision twice – near Keyser, WV, and near Piedmont, WV – and meets the Fairmont Subdivision near its west end at Grafton. At its west end, it continues as the Bridgeport Subdivision. The Mountain Subdivision's summit is at Altamont, MD, at the west end of the Seventeen Mile Grade; the grade's east end is at Piedmont, WV. Like many other CSX lines in West Virginia and Maryland, the Mountain Subdivision sees large amount of coal traffic. However, it doesn't just see coal traffic; it also sees a few manifests and possibly a few locals. Although it sees a fair amount of freight traffic, it does not see any passenger service. For those who like hauling freight and the challenge of climbing up and down steep grades, this would probably be a perfect route in Train Simulator! I think it shall be set in today's modern CSX era, but at the same time, I wouldn't mind seeing it set in the days of the B&O or perhaps the Chessie System. If it were set in the CSX era, I think it should include a variety of CSX power, such as the big and powerful ES44AH, the SD70MAC (with flared radiators), the old yet versatile SD40-2, and the old yet versatile GP38-2. If it were set in the days of the B&O, I think it should be set in either the transition or early diesel era. For the early diesel era, it shall include the EMD F3, the EMD F7, the EMD GP7, the EMD GP9, the EMD SD7, the EMD SD9, and/or maybe perhaps the EMD FT. If it were set in the days of the Chessie System, I think it shall include the EMD GP38, the EMD GP40(-2), the EMD SD40(-2), many of which originally came from the B&O. If you have any other suggestions or preferences for the CSX Mountain Sub, drop them down in the comments below!
