Okay, so the title is stated as is for reasons I will explain in the article. I know we’ve gotten a few routes featuring the NEC in some shape or form. But here’s what I felt should have been done back when the first NEC route was temporarily taken down from steam: 1) I felt it should have been rebuilt from the ground up to suit the NJT stock that was released a few months prior. Or 2) It should have been extended from the NJCL route and at least done all the way to Trenton or Philadelphia. With the inclusion of the Princeton branch. Why do I feel the NEC should have at least gotten a complete remake?! Well, there’s just a load of inaccuracies for the route.. granted this route was done well before the inclusion of the google maps integration, and it simply just looks bland, empty. The gradients are not good at all. As it’s not as good as what has been showcased in route offerings within the last few years. The included loco, the now retired AEM-7’s have sort of gotten a bit of attention to, but the somehow the inclusion of the passenger views for the Amfleet coaches couldn’t have at least been ported over from the latest versions offered in other routes?! The little bit of the corridor that was implemented in the NJCL route showcased just how much more awesome it would look, given that much attention to detail. It gives it so much character and life to the NEC that seems to be missing in the NY to Philly section. For a new section. They could also do the southernmost section from Philadelphia to Washington DC. Or New Haven to Boston which has never been officially created in any train sim. Though recent attempts have surfaced. But the progress of those are still up in the air. I personally would really like either of the options or all of them to be realized for TS2018 sometime in the not so distant future. But for the sake of getting the most out of the NJT equipment, I would really love to see the NY-Philadelphia section get redone to current quality of the route offerings. With a bonus Amtrak Amfleet/Keystone cab car included. Thoughts/opinions are of course welcomed.
