    Diesel traction is not allowed in New York Penn Station - or Grand Central -
    Hence the locos swaps or the use of FL9 & P32AC-DM locos on the Empire services

    There are limited Freight services on the North East Corridor.
    It is a very intensive Passenger Railway and freight uses other lines that allow the use of Double Stacks and Auto Carriers

    I like both passenger and freight, depending on what I feel like at the moment. Freight is good where there is a large yard with lots of shunting and other activities. Passenger is good where there are lots of stops. Something for everyone. I hope this one arrives before the holidays. LOL

    I have seen P42DC in NY-Penn Station and Metro North BL20GH in Grand Central Terminal. I believe if they are entering either GCT or NY-Penn, they have to operate at the lowest notch or be towed in the tunnel, as diesel fumes can be a concern, for the diesel locomotives and low emissions diesel/rescue locomotives.

    It is not something you would see on a daily basis and special arrangements would have applied

    I agree, these would be rare occurences where special arrangements are made for these train moves

    Nice, but I'll wait until the route goes from Philadelphia to at least NYC. 43 miles is definitely too short, all the more considering the fact that it includes only reused locos and rolling stock that I've already bought with other routes.

    That route has some bugs, it is sets in 2010 and needs some fixes like there is rain inside New York Penn and floating signals.

    There are mods on Railworks America that help with those issues.

    Not that I know of, but there are tricks to circumvent such issues.

    It appears to be a case where DTG accidently released the route...

    I saw on facebook that it will be released in this Friday or Thursday, which may mean still more work might be left, like the number lights are missing on the MARC MP36 because it is a repaint of the CalTrain one. cactusjuice hope you and your team would be adding it and soon maybe a branding patch by modders on sites like Railworks America.

    Likely if it's to released this coming week it will be on Thursday, as Friday would be Christmas Day. Looking forward to coming out.

    I'm pretty sure there are already various MARC reskins on the RWA file library.

    I would be surprised but all of DTG releases on Steam are standard Thursday/Friday, I cannot remember a case where it was earlier than that.
