    DT1.png I am a massive fan of this game but no matter how hard I look I can't seem to find enough PRR to fill that empty feeling when I play, not even enough freeware or payware on the open internet. What I mainly would like to see would be steam locomotives. Such as the T1, S2, E7's, I1's, J1a, M1, or even just a streamline version of the K4's. This is just me, but this is some stuff I would want to see in the future.

    What about the Q1 and Q2 Duplexes, the S1 Duplex prototype? The Steam Turbine needs to be made, too.
    Some new diesels: E-units, SD7/9s, FM H-24-66 Trainmasters, etc.

    I have a massive book of locomotive schematics if they really need it! But I doubt that they would really make the content (man hours needed and other projects already in the works). But I think the American steam locomotive market is a Cash cow just waiting to be milked.

    I doubt DTG will be doing much in this vein but I'm sure there are some graphics designers and physics people who would be able to make a go of this, similar to AP in the UK

    If you look at recent TS1 releases DTG aren’t the developer. Anything that’s new has a third party developer with DTG just being the Publisher. I don’t know how much input DTG has to the choices of new content, but I doubt it’s that significant. So the answer may well be to lobby third party developers who might have the interest/capability to produce this sort of content.

    Perhaps this is a niche where Trainz is stronger?

    NEC_Male_TC downvote all you want but it doesn’t change the reality that DTG doesn’t develop much if any TS1 content these days and certainly not individual locos.

    Go for it, man! And on the way, could you please suggest some PRR passenger cars to go with these great locomotives?

    I would love too, but I had been informed that the K4 isn’t dovetails product. It was made by dpsimulations.
    link: https://www.dpsimulation.org.uk/
    And they would be the best route to getting close to any new PRR content.
    Also, if you have not got it yet their is a lightweight passenger car pack (it’s free) from g-trax simulations that you can download a prr skin for them from Railworks America

    What we need for Horseshoe is the I1sa 2-10-0s and the M1b 4-8-2s. I can't stand seeing triple header K4s on freight trains.

    I would rather love to 16prr460e6s0065.jpg see Pennsylvania's most Famous 460 E6 steam locomotive that's on display at Strasburg Railroad

    I'm so sorry, I accidentally reported you :( I meant to reply and say that these engines werent very good (1 breakdown/run), and that there are no routes to run it on prototypically.
