    Nice addition -- and the Sante Fe highliners will look good on the upcoming Raton Pass dlc as well

    Great news - Really looking forward to using the SDP40F, and its marvellous array of Amtrak coaches!

    Raton Pass should come with the Hiliners.

    I was just thinking about this last night! Now we'll have all of (or at least almost all of) the engines that Amtrak has used over time available to us!

    Almost all of them. There's still engines such as the FL9s used on the Empire Corridor as well as the E60 electrics on the NEC.

    Weren't Highliners only used on the Southwest Limited anyway? You could also just use cars from the E8 pack for single level routes.

    They're not called Highliners, they're called Hi-Levels. Regardless, I can't wait to get this when it releases and see how closely DTM followed my advice.

    Hopefully it should not be much longer before they are released.
