    For this, they would follow either two models:
    - Have no commuter at all (NYNH)
    - Have unbranded template commuter stock (DC-BLT)

    I don't think Metroliner EMUs would make it into the game, cabcars yes.

    Why not, just not enough content?

    I like it. For whatever it's worth, this suggestion has my support.

    It wouldn't be era appropriate. Based on all the other rolling stock, you're suggesting modern era, the Budd Metroliners have been cabcars for over 30 years.

    Another reason is there are no known photos of the Metroliner EMU cabs, whilst cabcar photos are plenty, accurate sounds are almost impossible to procure as well, and even then DTG would use some stock Southern EMU sounds, which people would go ballistic over.

    Definitely with having a Keystone Corridor in TS. However, due to the current business model that DTG has adapted to over the years, it's more likely we'll never see it unless someone from the community makes it, without needing nearly $1K worth of DLC to run. Or, maybe a stateside 3rd party dev, will actually do something other than further saturate the US market with freight based routes, and actually take on the task of doing such a route.

    As far as dictating the price range, that's usually up to the devs, and DTG collectively. In my opinion, I think it's usually the amount of time that goes into such a project, is that turns the devs off, I'm guessing. And being that we have been so used to paying a certain amount, that most devs probably won't take on such a lengthy project unless they felt that they would be compensated fairly for their efforts. I don't mind paying a discount for something, but I do believe in fully supporting something if you want it bad enough. And that also means paying what the devs feel is reasonable, even if it's beyond the normal price.
