    As I Live in the New England Area, I think there should be a route that includes all four MBTA Commuter Rail lines out of North Station, as well as the Full Route of the Amtrak Downeaster train between Boston, Massachusetts to Portland, Maine, as well as the extension to Brunswick, Maine via Freeport. If possible, I believe there should also be the extended portion of MBTA's Fitchburg line to Pan Am Railway's East Deerfield Yard. The Lines included will be The Lowell Line, The Haverhill Line, the Fitchburg Line, and The Newburyport/Rockport Line. Equipment included in the route should be MBTA MPI HSP46, as well as Hyundai Rotem BTC and CTC MultiLevel Cars. Addons could be Pan Am Railways locomotives, as well as the Amtrak Downeaster NPCU's. Here are some Images of the route, which I found on different Wikipedia pages.[​IMG]

    I would personally love some more Northeast-based Commuter DLC. So yes.

    For Train Sim World I would love to have MBTA Commuter rail. I would love to see the Amtrak Downeaster if a to choose one section of the route it would be from Portland to Rockland the pilot program keeps getting postponed to later dates but I hope they still do it. I would love to see this because I live between Portland and Rockland right by the station in Newcastle.

    It’s only 33 miles from Haverhill to Boston Massachusetts by train.
