    hey would it improve sales if you add another type of up sd70ace with headlight on the nose?

    It definitely won't because of it being such a small and barely noticeable change but it would be really nice to see nonetheless.

    The headlights on the SD70ACe could use a touchup. Other than that, I'm up for this route!

    I'd love a UP ET44AC, SD70ACeT4, SD70M or SD9043MAC. The 6 Heritage SD70ACes would be great too. The #1943 or the George H. W. Bush SD70ACe versions could be great addons. A GP60 would be nice, too.

    First, thank you DTG for creating a rural midwest route and not another "Mountain Grade". I was really hopeing you would go east from Kansas City and not west, but I'll take it.

    I'm hoping the route includes the section of KC a little east of Armourdale Yard so Union Station and Santa Fe Jct will be there.

    Union Station would be nice too, would allow us to recreate 844's run from KC to Topeka.

    Genius idea! Just the thought of running that FEF-3 at 60 MPH makes me smile.

    Yeah, especially considering that Virtual Railfan has added 2 cameras at SantaFe Jct, it will become a lot more well known, I'm sure a lot of people would love to actually drive through the junction they can see live. It would surely help sales if it is included in the route.
