    Hello guys! On a recent video I posted someone mentioned wanting M3s (more specifically Metro-North M3As) in TS19 for the Hudson Line. I think they would be a great addition since they're classics that have been in service since the 80's and have stood the test of time. They would also add even more variety to the Hudson Line, since right now the only EMU's on the Hudson Line are the M7As. I've always wanted to sit in the engineer's seat and operate an M3, so I think TS19 could give me and many others the opportunity to do so. Maybe there could even be extra features, maybe period-appropriate interiors (pre-refurbishment and post-refurbishment) and new and old liveries, with or without the white reflective stripes on the front end. However, if only one livery and rendition is made, I want it to be the modern one since the Hudson Line rolling stock is modern. I really hope that the M3 gets made, since many people are yearning to have it in Train Simulator. Thanks for reading my proposal! Below are some of my own pictures of the M3A if you're interested.[​IMG]

    I did the exact same proposal, but for Train Sim World.
