    We all know those little 2-car EMU’s running to and from Grand Central on Metro North’s New Haven line.
    The trains are overall good but how about adding one of the missing features of it… a single car, powered, no cab unit.
    What do You think about addition of this one?

    That would be nice. I would prefer an M2 and M3 (in the same add-on, hopefully), but this is a good idea.

    Yes, MTA Enhancement pack with more coaches, livery variations for locomotives and more DMU/EMUs!

    Yeah. The older Shoreliners without center doors would be great. Like you said, instead of making everything separate, they could just make a Metro-North enhancement pack. Just so you know, we don't have DMUs. On the non-electrified branch lines we have BL20GH locomotives with a few Shoreliners and for branch line trains continuing down to Grand Central we have P32AC-DMs with more coaches.

    Oh yeah I totally forgot about the SPV2000. When I said there weren't DMU's I was wrong. They haven't been in service for like 20 years so that's probably why I forgot about them. Hopefully all that will be in one pack. I'm afraid they would be of low quality if they were, however, so instead some could be separate DLCs. Maybe the FL9 and P32AC-DM in new liveries, and the older Shoreliners could be in the MTA enhancement pack. I don't think a few modelling changes and reskins could be sold for $20 so I think it would be better at like $10 or $8. The M1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 could be their own DLC. I don't think DTG would make all of those in a single pack, however, so it would probably be the M3, M2, and M4. The M3 has been around for a while so it could be represented in different time periods, the M2s are the longest standing "Cosmopolitans," so the different time periods applies to them too, and the M4s have a unique three-car formation. The ACMU could probably be its own DLC as well. I'm not sure why, but I imagine it being in the pro range. Don't ask why, but I do. The SPV2000 could also be its own DLC. There isn't enough knowledge about the SPV2000 (probably because of its short service life), so it couldn't be pro range and would have a ton of errors. Honestly knowing DTG they would just use the engine sounds from a Pacer in the UK and the running sounds from the Amfleet coaches.

    Ok so apologies for writing an essay in the forums, you don't have to read all of this.
