Sand Patch could do with an extension to Connellsville, so long as others are actually interested. Right now, with the end of the route at Rockwood, some unrealistic operations are required to end services. Using Rockwood as a crew change point for every single train is not realistic, and any train that starts or ends on the mainline there is really out of place. It is understandable why Rockwood is the end, but it is not the most logical place to end in terms of realistic route design. A more logical crew change point and a more interesting place to end the route is Connellsville, which is home to quite a big yard acting as a hub for rail lines going off in all directions. This addition of track would be around 45 miles, putting the total route length at twice of what it is now, closer to 100 miles than 50. The line is not as intense as the East Slope, with higher speed limits and less extreme grades, with most of the scenery being dominated by rivers and hills, not just trees and hills. But, this would not add new mines or anything; all the action is at Connellsville, which would still be a good opportunity to add some more switching in to TSW. Now this does bring up the issue of multiple part services-not everyone wants to do the same train for 4 hours just to get a tick on the services list. A good way to get around that would be optional crew changes and multi part services. If you want, stop at Rockwood, get off, and AI takes over. Or, for the hardcore realistic 'run the whole sift' session, just keep on driving as if Rockwood wasn't there. (AI trains would take the 'keep going through' choice as that is more realistic) Either way, you get credit for doing half the service. That would also allow for doing just the half of the route that seems interesting at the moment. Connellsville has plenty going on, of course. Notably with autoracks. Many current autorack services in TSW actually terminate at Connellsville. Plus, a few manifest trains end there, of course. (Connellsville had a turntable, but the tracks were ripped out) A lot of the scenery of the West Slope is like this, river on one side, hill on the other. Part of the single track section came from avoiding tunnels that limited train height. And since you guys brought it up, after extension to Connellsville, there would finally be enough of the Keystone Subdivision modeled to allow for good operation of Amtrak's Capitol Limited. So if any train set were to be released along with (maybe as a separate DLC as this set could get a lot of use on other routes) Amtrak P42DCs, heritage baggage cars, and superliners would be the best.
