    • Marker "Edsa MCC/NSCR NB/SB" changed to "Edsa MCC NB".
    • Temporary removal of Speed Limit markers between Bluementritt and Edsa for Track Speed upgrade and immediately replaced.
    • Speed upgrade from 40-70 km/h to 60-90 km/h in Solis Triangle-Edsa Segment. (1)
    • NSCR Track in España segment remains to 140 km/h for express, but commuter reduced to 120 km/h. Temporary removal of Speed Signs needed, and immediately replaced. (2)

    Notes:
    1. Subject to actual route of PNR about curves. Requires slower speed limit to prevent derailment, due to some tracks not superelevated.
    2. Caution: On QD or Free Roam, it does follow the Primary Speed Limit, not Secondary. Do not exceed 120 km/h if you are in a commuter service, or set the PZB Mode to M (70 km/h.) You can create a scenario if you wish. Once selected the driver train, set the Service Class to "High Speed Freight".

    Warnings/Faults
    • Out of Memory crash at Paco/San Andres area due to user error.
    • Out of Memory crash at Edsa. (Change Track Properties)
