    These are just locos that would be nice to see added to Horseshoe Curve route as DLC or added in with the base route. These probably won't happen but it would be cool.

    1. SD40E

    Not much to say other than it's the staple of the curve. These locos have become synonymous with the helper service on this route. Sure some people might say, "oH nO aNotHEr sD40". But this one is different enough from the normal SD40-2.

    2. SD80MAC
    My personal favorite American locomotive. A beast of an engine that was acquired from the Conrail split. It would be nice to see a some big EMD power.

    3. High Hoods
    NS was truly a unique railroad with their locomotives. One of these oddities was the high hoods on some of their locomotives, left over from the Southern Railroad. It would be cool if Skyhook would add a variant of the GP38-2 or if they did an SD40-2, that would be cool too.

    4. GP60
    Instead of doing the GP38-2 again, why not do the GP60? It would be a breath of fresh air to see an American road switcher that isn't GP38-2 considering it's in 3 routes now.

    5. SD60E
    In 2013, NS started rolling out their rebuilt SD60E from the Juniata Shops. Another unique loco in NS's roaster. Would be great to see the veterans unit, first responders unit, and go rail unit. Also would die to hear the beautiful Leslie RS5T on these.

    6. SD70/SD70ACe/SD70ACu/SD70ACC
    Any one of the SD70 models would be welcomed in my opinion.

    7. D9-40C/D9-44CW/AC44C6M
    The Dash 9 is NS's most popular locomotive with about 600 or so active today. Also part of the roster is the AC rebuilds that NS has been doing.

    If the rumors are right about the Age of Steam pack. They could just have it based during conrail and put the k4 in place of the gp9. So we can get kind of a preview

    Conrail is owned by CSX, NS, and (if I correctly remember) Amtrak. Two of the three they already have permission for. They just need NS's permission

    According to the CSAO (Conrail Shared Assets Operations) you will still need to contact them about using their logo. However, I do think Norfolk Southern ended up owning the CR reporting marks.
