    There's a new station on the Providence line on Boston Sprinter and I'm pretty sure everyone wants to see it in TSW3 now as it is in use now by MBTA. The new station is Pawtucket Central Falls station, located between Providence and South Attleboro. I don't know if it's still under construction right now, but it'll make for an additional stop on the Providence line. This is just a small recommendation.

    The route is set in 2019 which is why the station is abandoned and Ruggles Northeastern University lack a 2nd Northbound platform.
    If you want that then 2022-2023 version Ruggles Northeastern University 2nd Northbound platform Central Falls station open HSP-46 with Avelia Liberty Siemens ACS-64

    Indeed. It’s the old abandoned station that we need. Still frustrates me that they left it out for some reason.

    The avelia still wouldn't fit the time period because it's been delayed to 2024. Reason being more testing required to run on the really old tracks.

    Thank you for telling me about that looks like we can try redoing this 2023 2024. Pawtucket station open and Ruggles Northeastern University 2nd northbound platform completed and is actually connected to the bus terminal. with the trains I mentioned earlier.
