    The Boston Sprinter route so far is amazing, but I think for the Amtrak services it is a little to short in time as it roughly takes around 30min from one end to the other. I'm not complaining here, but I think it would be good if we could have a new route extension to New London in the near future. It is about 47miles.

    New London, Connecticut? Yeah not going to happen, that would make the route more than 100 miles long which is way too long

    This is hard to make clear. Dtg are not I repeat not going to make route extensions. They tried it with TS and it doesn't make money. They are unlikely to happen anywhere in the foreseeable future. Besides this route extension would be better off as a separate route as it require separate rolling stock as it is not served by mbta

    Yep, DTG have cleared this up many times.

    They want to avoid DLC for DLC (other than Locos, which they are trying to make multi route compatible at the moment)

    i've heard Matt saying that extensions could happen but its not the time yet.
    BUT, maybe its the time for some German content to have an extension.

    This one you are proposing, its clearly not going to happen, tho i understand the need to have longer routes for high speed trains.

    I mean, roughly 23 miles are served by the MBTA.
