    The North Jersey Coast Line is operated by NJ Transit on the Northeast Corridor, from New York to Bay Head. The rolling stock used would be the ALP45DP, Comet IV coaches, and the Comet V coaches and cab car. The Comet IV and Comet V coaches would be randomized for added realism. A neat feature of this route would be the power mode switch at Long Branch station. The engineer would have to switch power modes from electric overhead catenary to diesel, or vice versa, since overhead catenary is not available passed Long Branch. There are many stations and railroad crossings along the line, which would make this route very fun to play. The Amtrak ACS-64 can also be ported over from Boston Sprinter and operated to Newark Penn Station as a Northeast Regional, Silver Meteor, Silver Star, and Keystone, but its a very short distance so just having the AI Amtrak would probably be fine. This route is about 65 miles long so it doesn't reach the limits of UE4.

    The Northeast Corridor is operated by many railway companies, and goes from Boston to Washington DC. For this route, it will be operated by Amtrak and NJ Transit, from New York to Trenton. The rolling stock used would be the ALP45DP, Multilevel coaches and cab car, Comet IV coaches, Comet V coaches and cab car, ACS-64, and Amfleets. The ACS-64 and Amfleets will be ported over from Boston Sprinter and can be operated as a Northeast Regional, Silver Meteor, Silver Star, and Keystone. There is a huge variety of rolling stock for this route, which would make this route very fun to play. This route is about 67 miles long so it doesn't reach the limits of UE4.

    For sounds, CentralJerseyRailfan on YouTube has very accurate sound mods for the Multilevels and Comets for Train Simulator which would go perfect with the NJ Transit rolling stock in Train Sim World 2.

    For physics, contact Fan Railer on YouTube. He has a lot of knowledge about the physics and how the rolling stock should behave.

    ALP-45DP are built in two batches the first batch 4500-4534 2010-2013 builds Tier 3 emissions then fast forward to 2020-2024 you now get 4535 upwards tier 4 emission standards. North Jersey coast line and Northeast Corridor Rush Hour feel around Newark, NJ area Raritan Valley Line must join in. That way you are held at Newark Airport to let RVL Trains through then proceed to Newark Penn and New York Penn. In the afternoon there's an Express train from New Brunswick to NY Penn the 15:25 trip. Make ALP-45DP ALP-46A Acela Express standard then Boston-Providence give ACS-64 here
