I know many have been excited about NEC from Boston to Providence. And a few that are hoping for some freight action on the line as well. So, I may as well see if it's possible to have freight on this line. (Feel free to talk about it as well) Services: While the Providence line is part of NEC (operated by both Amtrak and MBTA), CSX does also operate on the Massachuites side of the route for freight, mainly locals. And while there are some yards that are layovers by MBTA, CSX does have an actual yard at Readville that shares with MBTA in some parts (maintenance facility and overlay storage). And there are at least 4 services that operate from Readville to other lines: -B710: to Attleboro, which works on the Soughton Branch -B731: operating on the Farimgham Secondary Line, via Walpole -B732: to Walpole on the Franklin line -B733: all I got from this service was as an extra when needed Locos and Wagons: Now if this route has layered in freight, it would have to be from Sand Patch Grade (as the only CSX route in TSW2 by far). And since the line is mainly local, then the only loco that I would see fit (as accurate as possible) is the GP38-2. Of course, CSX operates GP40-2s on the line. But since that loco hasn't been revived to TSW2 standards like the ACS-64 (one day though), the GP38 is the closest Geep to operate on. As for the rolling stock, the best guess after looking up what the customers are on and adjacent to the Providence Line, would just be your common boxcar and cover hoppers to pull along with (there's also center beams for the lumber, but that would also require another route to have them included. Which in result, more layers to be added in). So that is my thought on if freight is gonna be part of the new NEC. While it may not look like there's that much to play on, but it would have the same feel as NEC: NY had (more or less) or any other passenger-focus route that has a bit of freight to it. And maybe better, if lucky. But until more details on what's gonna be on this route (from Q&A Streams and Articles down the line, no pun intended), it's just speculation on what the freight side is gonna look like if included.
