    Locomotives
    Sd 50
    Emd F7
    4-6-0 no. 225, 4-6-2 no. 425, or ex reading 4-8-4 no. 2102
    Roster-6-10-21.png Rolling stock, mostly coal and mixed freights that could be transferred from any other modern US freight route route. The steam engine and EMD F7s pull excursions for the line with old heavy weights.

    This route will allow us to view the mountains, valleys, and rivers in Pennsylvania while providing challenging grades

    It would have to have #425 and #2102 included, #225 is on static display.

    Really excellent Idea and furthermore you can do this as Reading and Northern Scranton to Easton, PA via Allentown

    Love the Idea as I live in the Valley myself and know all these areas very well but it's to Big and to Spread-out that if DTG would make it I would see them cutting a whole area out just because their is more scenery in all these areas compared to trackage, Given there isn't a Route in Game that even comes close to something like this maybe you say Sandpatch but that's not even close to being as this Route has 3 big cities in it Reading Wilks-Barre and then Scranton right next to it. Scranton City alone would be a Massive undertake of recreating in TSW3. I been asking DTG since 2018 TSW Beta for the Great Lehigh Valley from Easton to Reading and never got any answers ever so that shows we will probably never see a Lehigh Valley route ever, but given now TSW3 routes are getting longer I'd Love to see from Easton to Harrisburg PA now which would be beautiful but I can only dream.

    Since I am from the Easton Pennsylvania area you must be referring to the Delaware river bridge which was the old central railroad of New Jersey Main Line. The big plan is something like this combine Reading RR Reading to Allentown,PA Line with CRRNJ Allentown Bethlehem Easton Phillipsburg Raritan Line you got a long distance Spirit of Steam route.
