    During the 50s Henry Dreyfus created the iconic streamliner for its time. The 20th Century Limited. I would like to see that added in the game as a DLC

    Can't forget the Empire State Express with a similar locomotive. Some freight action is also needed on an NYC route. The route needs to be set in the 1940s and 50s. Steam locos to include: NYC J1e or J3a 4-6-4 Hudson, 4-8-2 Mohawk, and 4-8-4 Niagara. Diesels to include: F7 or E7 A & B, GP7/9, FA-1 or FA-2, plus B-Units, and maybe an RS3 or Baldwin Sharknose RF-16 A/B Units. I'd rather see this route with steam locos. There needs to be some good rolling stock, including: NYC Pacemaker boxcars, flatcars with trailers, an NYC caboose, and a full Empire State Express or 20th Century Limited passenger consist.

    Well a lot of what you just mentioned has already been made via third party sites.

    I believe that Digital Railroading is working on a Water Level Route, however for some time on their website it said that the route was cancelled, but the people who are a part of Digital Railroading are still posting videos/streams/picture as though it still is in development, so I'm not quite sure.

    For most of them you just drag the assets folder from the items you downloaded into your railworks file. Once that's done, copy the .GeoPDx file from the original locomotive file and paste it into the reskin file. If it's not a reskin, then you dont have to do the second step. Hope this helps!

    I added the 20th Century Litd. Coaches. It gives me a blank consist. Is there something wrong I did with or I need a DLC for it?

    Ah, I forgot. For the 20th Century Ltd to work you need this:
    http://railworksamerica.com/downloa...assenger-cars&catid=19:rolling-stock-repaints
    Just drag the assets file to your Railworks file and you should be good to go. Once that's done, copy the .GeoPDx files from the Great Northern passenger cars and paste them into the folder for the 20th Century Ltd passenger cars.

    No. I haven't been able to get it to work either. However, I would like to mention some other New York Central items I've found. If you use the first link that I had posted, you'd see that Digital Railroading has released some passenger cars to match the Dreyfuss Hudson. I've also found some other GP9s as the ones that I had previously linked to, are reskins of a payware model, which I was not aware of.
    http://golden-age-rails.com/packsrw/emdgp9nyc.html
    The GP9s I just linked are free and only require the US Loco and Asset Pack to work.
