    That was my thought too, it seems perfectly suited to TSW’s strengths. It’s relatively short, has lots of timetabled services, and a lot of the rolling stock already exists. In any event, I’ll be buying this, it takes me back to the NEC in MSTS days.

    The high platforms in the route are still far too low.

    Only thing I wish would of happened was maybe a few new skins added in to the default stock, such as the Northeast Regional Decal for the Amfleet Cafe Car or the Amtrak ACS-64 Veterans Unit, would of also been nice to have a yard shunter like the SW1000R to work the Ivy City yard, but the route so far has been solid, no major complaints so far.

    I'm driving the first scenario, the route looks nice but I found two bugs in the first minutes: first of all, the red indicator that selects the cruise speed in the acela is not functional (it was before, when the Acela was a standalone DLC). The cruise speed selection works anyway (I tried it) but it is imposible to select the desire speed. Secondly, shortly after leaving Union Station the in cab signalling disabled by its own and if I enable it manually (Ctrl+D and Ctrl+F) the alarm will activate and it will be imposible to stop it (also, Q won't work for acknowledgment, but that was a previous issue with the Acela, now I can not even shut the alarm with the hud command).
    Besides this, I am really loving the route! I hope this issues may be solved

    Well I can answer the first and maybe the second issue, outdated scripts related to signalling. The Acela's cruise control has only been able to work properly on the OG NEC route. (NY-PHI) This also may be your ACSES and ATC problem, as the new signals are not back compatible.

    Are those routes the same with old and new?

    Because of asking I saw a message at Steam forum about this and that person is not happy because he already have the old route also saying that he should not buy new route. That's all I am asking if that route are the same or different.

    Have a good Christmas everyone!!

    They are different routes, this one only exists in msts. Merry Christmas!!
    Thanks for the answer! In my case I do not own NY-PHY, but the cruise control works on NY-NH

    Interesting, I've never seen it work on NYNH, perhaps it's my end.

    Ok now I 'finished' the second scenario. The in cab signalling made me reduce speed (to 30 or 20 mph) two times: The first one near BWI was unjustified, the second one was because I had a commuter ahead of me, because of that I arrived to New Carrolton 10 minutes late. Then, after leaving New Carrolton the conmuter was stop in front of me (no signal advice) and it ended on a frontal crash.
    It's a shame because I love the ACS-64 and it performs better than in NY-NH, it is really enjoyable but I couldn't finish the scenario.
    Merry Christmas

    That's strange, I ran the 2nd Scenario without any issues.

    Maybe is because I was late, I'm gonna try tomorrow disabling the in cab signalling.
    Thanks!

    I have the same problem too, 2 miles before BWI Airport the signal speed forces me to reduce to 45 and then 30 because of a red signal, and when i reached the signal it didnt even turn to green or even yellow for 5 minutes, I opened the 3D map and saw that the Southbound Penn Line commuter stopped in nowhere and never moved then. I didn't use any mods that cause errors. DTG please fix those bugs would be appreciated.

    Well, I arrived to Union Station, everything went ok this time except for a commuter service that I almost crash entering Union Station. I stopped in time, but the in-cab signalling never let me know (it was enabled).
    In the picture it can be seen that the signal was approach with maximum at 20.

    It seems that on the ADU (I think) it says "Restricting". Restricted speed means you have to slow down to 15 mph, watching out for any obstacles on the track, including misaligned switches, another train ahead, items on the track, etc... So it seems to be correct, as the commuter should be giving a misaligned switch for you coming in.

    I think making it to Philly could be accomplished with a community extension (NY - Albany style).
