    Glad to see the SD70ACe looks much better here than Grainger Heartland. A more consistent livery with the rest of the UP locos, and the fixed Ditchlights.

    Only real complaint are the front handrails on the AC4400CW, which like the Cane Creek model for TSW2, are still the wrong type.

    Still, looking forward for this routes release.

    YES!!! The UP SD70ACe looks MUCH better than the one that came with the Granger Heartland! Light flares added to the headlights, now THAT is a plus!

    They made big changes to the SD70Ace,it looks way better than the old loco addon,i hope there would be rain on windshield this time.
    AC4400CW also looks awesome cant wait to try it and see how it sounds like.

    Just noticed that the AC44 cab appears to have a cab signal display. Is that accurate for Union Pacific locomotives?

    I already have the 3D Trains Tehachapi Pass route. Is this the same one?

    Negative, Marc has posted about it on his own forums and Trainsim.com. He still has plans for the route, with the option of backdating his in the future.

    But DTG's release is their own version, and has nothing to do with the version on 3Dtrains site.

    I still think that a BNSF GP60 or GP50 should have been included for switching at Mojave. Perhaps a later DLC will add that. I'd also love a UP C45AH (ET44AC) and BNSF ET44C4, as well as a new UP SD70AH-T4. An SD60M in both liveries, a BNSF SD75M/I, and perhaps a BNSF liveried SD70MAC could be added as well.

    Does this route have the siding bypass around Tunnel 10?
