    From 1870 to 1980, Southern Pacific was the Operator of the Peninsula Commute between San Francisco and San Jose (And to Gilroy and Monterrey). I think a good add on to either current Peninsula Corridor Route is the equipment that was used by the Southern Pacific from about 1960's to 1985 (When the leased SP units were given back after the arrival of the F40PH's). Not including any steam locomotives, as I believe those would be better off in a backdated route.

    Potential Diesel Power that could be in this pack. All of these locomotives were equipped with Steam Generators for passenger service.

    This would be cool to see indeed! If this DLC were to be made you could also run some Amtrak P30CHs with the SP equipment as Amtrak leased some to SP for Peninsula Commute.

    I definitely want the Trainmasters. Could we get the Torpedo GP9s, too? I really want locos in the Black Widow livery.

    I sometimes run some SP equipment and pooches on the Peninsula Corridor route.
