    This is the main thread for my project of building the Harlem Line all the way to Wassiac, I am already at Bronxville in track and plan to catch up in scenery. (3/21/20)

    Era:
    This route is set in the present, so the new third track is included.

    Summary:
    The Metro North Harlem Line is a commuter rail line that extends 82 miles from Grand Central Terminal in New York City, to Wassaic NY. The line is electrified with 600V under-running third rail from NYC to Southeast Station in Brewster, from Southeast to Wassaic is diesel territory.

    Rolling Stock:
    The line uses M3A and M7A EMU cars, built in 1983 and 2004 respectively. The line also uses GE P32AC-DM daul-mode passenger locomotives and Shoreliner Coaches for trains straight to Wassaic.

    Requirements:
    This route uses all official payware, however, it will not be in the steam workshop, since I am creating custom signs for each station on the route. 20200319142641_1.jpg
    - NEC: New York - New Haven
    - North Jersey Coast Line (without Morristown).
    - Academy Assets (included with base game).
    - Hudson Line: New York - Croton Harmon
    These are the most necessary as track and infrastructure depends on these three.

    - NEC: New York - Philadelphia
    - Donner Pass
    - Peninsula Corridor: San Francisco - San Jose
    - My Harlem Line Station Signs Package (will come with route).
    Not as necessary, but still recommended.

    The route will be released in phases, as follows:
    Release 1: Skeleton form to White Plains
    Release 2: Skeleton form from White Plains to Southeast, full detail to White Plains.
    Release 3: Full detail to Southeast
    At this point it would be considered a full release.
    Extension to Wassaic
    Release 4: Skeleton to Wassaic.
    Release 5: Full detail to Wassaic.

    I can't wait to get this done, and show this to the community.

    These images are a tad bit dated, but show Fleetwood station, my first of many to come scratch-built stations.

    Yes, I've made it to white plains, but I have it on hold as I'm upgrading my computer specs.

    Unfortunately no, since there's another group working on a Harlem Line, I've ceased work on this one.

    I also wonder if DTG plans on releasing the Harlem line, as we currently only have the official Hudson and New Haven Lines in Train Simulator, only missing the Harlem line now

    I could see a New York - North White Plains route being made, with the usual reused Metro North P32, Shoreliner IIIs (perhaps even IIs, Morristown did surprise us with that Comet IV cabcar), and M7As. But with a new model to take the spotlight (like the M7A did on the Hudson), an M3A. DTG can just redo the LIRR M3 to Metro North M3A spec, like what was done for the Hudson line with the M7.

    DTG has everything they need, they just need to get to work.

    Agreed, it would definitely be great if they make it up to Wassaic but I can definitely see it being created to Southeast as the Hudson and New Haven Lines officially ended at the last electrified portion of the line

    It would also be great to see LIRR featured in Train Simulator. Since Woodside is featured in the New Haven and Hudson Line DLC's, I wonder if there were originally plans to implement the LIRR into Train Simulator.
