    Yea I think DTG shouldn't release a bunch of NEC routes as the only American passenger routes we get, since most of us will get bored of seeing the exact same trains on similar routes, and for sure will kill the excitement anyways. Sure I would love to see routes like NY-New Haven and DC-Baltimore, but maybe sprinkle some west coast/southern east coast stuff in between? Some freight action every once in a while would be welcome too.

    I think it's about time the U.S gets some attention, the last U.S passenger route released was way back in July 2019 with Peninsula Corridor.

    Now I know I am pretty biased I understand that, but when considered with the shear amount of European content being made and few U.S content, one can see how great it is for another U.S route coming (Western POV). Now I don't want this to turn into a country vs country outcry so I leave it simply saying, "it's great to NEC return, hopefully see more U.S routes/trains".

    So hopefully we see more U.S releases on the road-map, whether that be locos or routes (preferably the latter)

    I also agree, other parts of the country and other rapid transit/commuter operations are something to look at.

    Also I just noticed this... saying NEC returns, possibly acknowledging that a U.S passenger route had to return. I don't know it's my thoughts. Alright that's enough speculation from me.

    I completely agree, there are so many European based routes but only 2 passenger routes for the U.S. We need more U.S passenger routes in TSW2, along with a variety from different states as well.

    If the tread of the previous route were anything to go by, I think this route (Along with the core updates) will be released on August 19th, since we usually get 2 preview steams in the weeks leading up a routes release.

    EDIT: Just realised that date would also coincide with the one year anniversary of TSW2.

    Excited for Thursday to see this route in action on stream. If at all possible, can be shown on a PS5 or Xbox Series X?

    With the first preview of this route being shown on Thursday is it possible to show it off on one of the new generation of consoles?

    Looks like DTG heard us about the time it takes for them to make routes

    Well they sure are running out of summer to put out the routes. Which is fine, giving them extra time to add more to the routes, but the whole summer branding needs to change if that’s the case.

    Totally agree. Stop stringing us along DTG and making out all three routes are still coming in the summer. Either announce a summer release date or be upfront and say Rush Hour will extend into Fall/Autumn. All this stuff they say like 'you can decide when summer ends'. No we don't. Meteorological summer ends on 31st August and astronomical summer ends on 22nd September. Releasing in October and then saying 'oh, it's still British summer time' doesn't cut it.

    It's not a good look to over-promise and under-deliver.

    £0, because it's 99.9% not going to happen. (always got to keep that 0.1% just so you don't look like an idiot if you are wrong :D)

    Since when was there an article?

    And also, the route will release when it releases. As will the release date. Patience exists you know.

    Yes but they've been stringing us along for months now. Not to mention the price hike.

    Well they have done that in the past so it wouldn't be a new thing dtg have done. Frankly it wouldn't surprise me at this point

    They delayed it once, once only, and that was to ensure higher quality. The price hike (not that bad unlike the way you imply) was do they could pay the dev teams to make it.

    Let's Hope they really Deliver what they said, especially since they cut one of the route length which i don't recall which one but i think is the Gatwick Line. They still should make the promise extended route tough to make up for the fact that these route won't be deliver on time ::(

    "With the upcoming Boston – Providence route, you’ll climb aboard Amtrak’s state-of-the-art Siemens ACS-64 “City Sprinter” and MBTA’s distinctive EMD F40PH-3C and MBB CTC-3 cab car to hustle passengers between classic Boston South Station and modern Providence station. And the upcoming route will also include MBTA’s noted Stoughton Branch." What do they mean by "And the upcoming route will also include MBTA’s noted Stoughton Branch" Does that mean that we have to wait even more longer, for this extended route, cause this is what i think they mean." And also are these brand new transet model, and from what year?

    To awnser the first question, no, you do not have to wait longer, it will release on the 19th of August.

    Also, it is not extended. This was the original plan if I remember correctly.

    The Stoughton Branch has been included from the first press release. It's not new.
