    The cab car indeed look great, but the part of NEC where is run... emm...
    I wonder if ACSES and ATC will get fixed.

    Ok thank goodness, whew... either of these things on their own wouldn't be worth it IMO, but together like this I'll buy them on sale.

    It does look pretty good, too- I was looking forward to seeing the cab of this thing in game, it's so cramped-looking and I kind of like it because of that. A bit confused on how you actually get in, couldn't find a picture of it that actually showed a way out lol.

    (Also I'm noticing there's no toilet paper roll)

    One small note, though:
    [​IMG]
    I'm guessing you're supposed to be paying attention to the train and not the signal in the foreground...

    Ooooooouuuuuu it looks absolutely great and I’m looking forward buying both DLC for TSW. Would y’all be adding the GE Genesis Amtrak to train sim world for the extended line like a switch over at a station to us the genesis ?

    Are you guys going to add the GE Genesis Amtrak for a switch at the station if we don’t want to use the ACS-64

    I was talking more about how the cab has controls on the left side and no visible way in. I'm sure you enter from just behind the camera, but that's what I couldn't find pictures of. And actually the door on the front there is plated over, you probably have to get in using the passenger doors.

    But to get into the driver set you would have to walk all the way to the front to open up the Passenger Door. I’ve seen the motor man get into the cab in person while he’s was getting off

    The cab car, like the SW1000R looks great! Since there are two locos included, I will probably now buy on release. I hope that Dovetail Games continues to produce multi-loco packs such as this one and the BR Heavy Freight Pack.

    I wanna be excited for this. But it's hard for a route such as this, where you can't get much enjoyment of. Because the endpoints are a joke. Though it does make this route 10% less useless, and even that's a stretch. I'll never get over the choice to make this route the way it is. This would have been better suited for TS1, just like I still feel about LIRR.. two missing pieces of a puzzle of one product put into another.

    If nothing else. It does look good.

    There are rumors of a 3rd DLC that is coming out for either Northeast Corridor or an another American Route. Are these rumors true?

    That is not what I said. I said NEC is getting two dlc. The cab car and the sw1000r. But there a pack. Plus when Americans get a dlc route. The gp40-2 was 1. The sw1000r and cab car are 2 and 3. Reread what I said. I didn't start the rumor, you did.

    When I posted it in the yard goat thread it wasn't announced as one dlc pack. But the cab car was still leaked at the time. So at the time it was 2 separate dlc.

    I don't think that will happen and honestly I don't think it's all that necessary. But that's just my opinion.

    Oh, sorry.

    I absolutely love the cab car. I busted my hump trying to make one for N scale but this is WAY better. I believe the Atlantic city train used cab cars from new York but they had F40s??? But what about the tunnel? Genisis please!
