Overview: The New Haven line is one of the three lines Metro North operates down. Metro North shares the line with Amtrak from New Rochelle to New Haven where the line stops for Metro North. It starts in the glorious and famous Grand Central Terminal in the East Side of Manhattan, and all of Metro North’s operations take place in GCT. Then the line proceeds through New York and into Connecticut to New Haven. Currently in TSW, we already have Penn Station towards New Rochelle which make a up a good chunk already done. I think DTG should at least extend towards Stamford for the time being, and also make the branch-off towards GCT for Metro North operations. If some of you haven’t heard, when DTG releases editor tools, cActUsjUiCe is making the NEC from Boston to Washington, but isn’t making any commuter extensions for example, towards GCT or up the LIRR. That is why DTG should at least make the GCT Branch and also extend from New Rochelle to Stamford in the meanwhile so we could operate a more realistic Northeast Regional and maybe an Acela and Metro North trains. Route Details and Trains: The route length from GCT to New Haven is 76 miles and Metro North mainly operates 2 types of trains down the line. They operate the new Kawasaki M8s which were delivered in 2011/12, and run the local and express services to Stamford and New Haven and vice versa. They are equipped with 3rd rail (DC) capabilities and cantenary. Metro North switches from 3rd rail to Cantenary in between Pelham and Mount Vernon East stations. Metro North also operates the GE P32AC-DM that runs down the 2 diesel branches that run off the New Haven line (Danbury and Waterbury branches). They also operate Budd/GE M2s, but very rarely now that they’re retiring around this year.

For starters, since DTG would’ve made GCT for this route, it would only add to the experience if they extended down the very popular and beautiful Hudson line or since they’ve made a little bit of the Harlem line before it branches off the New Haven line, that could come as well. I personally would love to see more Metro North and the Long Island Railroad be added to the game, which are two railroads owned by the MTA, and are on very high demand for the game. With this line we also get more Amtrak experiences, with the ability to operate at higher speeds and hopefully with an Acela Express soon to come. In Conclusion: Thank you for reading and participating in this proposal! I hope we get to see this and a lot more of the LIRR and Metro North soon!
