    While it's nice to get a new North American route, kind of disappointing it's another UP route, and a route that looks like it will reuse locomotives from Sherman Hill and Peninsula Corridor. Most likely will wait for a sale on this one.

    Only good news is that it is a former Missouri Pacific route, so maybe down the road will we can get some Mopac locomotive DLCs such as the GP15-1, which the MP had 160, more that the other 3 buyers combined. (Not to mention UP owns most of these now)

    Seems intriguing but based on the reactions to the last UP route, I feel like it should've been CSX's Monroe Subdivision in North and South Carolina.

    Since DTG isn't the one that built this it might actually be really good. Granger Heartland is absolute garbage because it was made by DTG, who don't seem to care much about quality control at this point, which is a shame.

    I agree as well this new route looks better than Granger.

    I like Granger from an operational standpoint with the 60-70 mph speed limits, but yeah those bright green jungle trees suck. Looks like a cheap plastic kid's toy. At least it's not like TSW where they keep the leaves on the trees in the winter and just make them white. I wish they would stop doing that for British and US routes. We know it's possible, because they've done it with German routes.

    Why do they even do that? It looks like garbage and the old tree models were perfectly fine. Admittedly I'd like the fall trees if the colors were turned down a bit, but in general they're still pretty awful.

    I live in Baton Rouge and I am so happy that Louisiana railroading is being showcased in TS2020. I’m saddened, though, that the colorful livery of the Kansas City Southern Railroad wont make a debut. The New Orleans Subdivision line that stretches from Baton Rouge to New Orleans runs directly behind my neighborhood. But this announcement comes as the South celebrates Mardi Gras and as we say, les bon temps rouler! Cant wait to purchase this route!

    So with the TSW CN route launching today, any bets that this will release tomorrow?

    I'm really hoping so. It would suck if this would take like a month to release like the M2.
