    Has anyone else had trouble with no lights in the NEC tunnel? I just have to sit through it in pitch darkness. There is also missing track at points as well.

    The lack of lights in the tunnel, though wrong, is intended. DTG assumed that, like some tunnels, the tunnels into Penn have the lights off usually. Bad assumption.

    On my trips from Baltimore to Connecticut on the northeast regional the tunnels are well lit and the only dark tunnel ive been through was under Penn Station in Baltimore to when I was heading to Union station in Washington Dc

    Also remember to check the lights on the train. When you start a service run you need to turn on the lights on the train (both head lights and ditch lights as far as I remember). That should give you some light in the tunnel at least.
