    The horseshoe cure that’s currently in the game was when PRR still owned it now Norfolk Southern and Amtrak run on the curve and now has 3 tracks instead of 4 it is now a national park and has a old PRR engine on display

    There is actually a modern horseshoe curve route that is available on the Steam Workshop, however it does require some DLC that is no longer on the Steam Store, such as the Portland Terminal route. It still would be nice to have an official modern HSC route available in Train Simulator.

    Could be cool. I would like to see Conrail in TS2018/19. We could get a Conrail SD80MAC or SD70MAC, a GP38-2, and maybe an SD40-2, U-Boat, Dash 7, or Dash 8.
    For NS, we need an ES44AC or ET44AC, an SD40-2 high-nose, a GP38-2 high-nose, or maybe a Genset Switcher.

    There already is an NS High-Nose, both SD40-2 and GP38-2 I think.

    Yes! I'd love the Horseshoe Curve more modernized! Perhaps set in the Conrail era! Plus an extension of it from Johnstown to Pittsburgh!

    I think if DTG were to do the Horseshoe Curve set in today's era, it should include the entire Pittsburgh Line from Altoona to Pittsburgh. And as far as power, it shall include an NS Dash 8-40CW, an NS SD40-2 "Admiral Cab", an NS GP38-2 "Admiral Cab", and an Amtrak P42DC. And as far as rolling stock, it should include an Amfleet I coach and cafe car, and a variety of freight cars. Some with NS lettering.

    Yet again... why DTG? More local people would do this more easily than a company based in the UK
