    Well, New York to New Haven and the new Hudson line for Train simulator released for Train Simulator, Now I believe It is TSW’s Turn to Jump I’m over to the New York and Connecticut route. Maybe we could have an NEC New York Expansion(Next discussion, Follow me to know about it). Well, We’re not gonna add one, Not two, BUT THREE lines for the route I’ve chosen to New Haven Line, New Cannan Branch and the Harlem Line for this due to the Harlem Line not chosen and the Harlem Line and the Harlem line Hugely known in Train Simulator.

    Let’s Jump to the Trains we’ll be using, Shall we? For the lead car is the P32ac/dm or GE Genesis Series II for the New Haven Line and the Harlem Line(Hudson line is excluded for now). Built between 1993 and 2001. The GE Genesis has many brothers and sisters on parts of the country like The Midwest, New Jersey, And Even Canada! [​IMG] Lead P32ac/dm#226 Approaches Harlem-125 Street [​IMG] Interior Of the P32ac/dm(For Amtrak, For Metro-North look down for Comments)

    Now, Next up is Shoreline IV cab, Behind the P32ac/dm, The Shoreline IV cab entered service in 1996. It’s Max speed is 120 MPH but Its Limit is 90 MPH. The Shoreliner III is based on the New Jersey Transit Comet III. Its Use is on the 3 Major lines of Metro-North Along with the P32ac/dm.

    I know everyone will ask for this train so, Coming up is the M3(This Should be an Individual due to that Many trains for the route). The M3 was constructed between 1984 to 1986 and Entered service in 1985, A Year after the M3A entered service. The M3 is operated in the LIRR and Metro-North. This can be used for the 3 routes available.

    [​IMG] Two M3 cars in the opposite direction at Harlem-125 Street Station.
    [​IMG] The Cab of the M3(More cab photos can be found on the comments)

    Next up on our list is upon the Train that has been in the New York-New Haven Of Train Simulator without going from Penn Station, You guessed it, The M8 railcar. The M8 railcar was a replacement for the older, M2, M4, And M6 cars. Built By Kawasaki Heavy Industries, The M8 entered Service in March of 2011. This Train can be used on the New Haven Line and the New Cannan Branch.[​IMG]

    [​IMG] Another photo of the M8 Cab.
    At last, The final train on this List is the M7A. The M7 Variant has been released for the LIRR for TSW but the not for the M7A. The M7 Were a way to replace the M1 which was an Electric Train. The M7 is an Electric Third Rail car. The M7 will only be on the Harlem Line.

    If there is anything I have missed or mistakes, Please comment down and do Upvote this if you want this route included and Also this covers 65.4 Miles(I would have done Bridgeport but that would be a line That would automatically be rejected. Thank you for reading this(This actually took hours for me to make so I would like it if you upvote this. Also, These Photo’s aren’t mine and also I got this info from Wikipedia).

    Looks nice, though I personally think we have enough passenger routes. After a few more freight routes I would probably buy this.

    I personally want the Tennessee mountains that Norfolk Southern run through. Though the Cajon Pass would be nice too.

    I've been looking forward to seeing the Pittsburgh line and Horseshoe Curve for TSW for over a year the route would look amazing on the unreal engine

    I've never been to the Horseshoe Curve but I know it's quite amazing. Plan on going this summer or maybe even over spring break. I'd love it as a route though.

    Well, It depends on what Dovetail will add for the Lines, I would love CSX on the routes tbh with you, but that's what made NEC 4 stops only, No hate intended for Freight, Plus Main Spessart has Freight

    I upvoted. I would like the route but personally want more American frieght as well as away from CSX. That being said, this would be a great passenger route. Though I hope later on DTG do add Norfolk Southern and other American frieght railroads.

    True we do have a lot of Freight trains in NEC,GWR,RSN,MSB & also passenger trains in
    NEC, RT ,GWR ,RSN ,MSB ,WSR ,NTP, LIRR, but I do highly prefer Passenger Train service over Freight why bc we only driving Freight train to the end of the side of the map back and forth without any really heavy duty behind

    I prefer freight mainly because the trains are long rather than 6-10 cars. Every single TSW route has been based around passenger services expect for Heavy Haul. And trust me, freight trains can have tons of power and speed if on the right route.

    Freight trains are okay in TSW but I just wish it was more interactive with them then, just driving them from one end to the next and that’s it nothing much to do. A passenger trains have local or express services picking up people at stations trying to be on time at every station rather then be late & make other trains delayed. I have driven a few Freight trains in TSW.
