    The post mixes between saying this is for Train Sim World and Train Simulator... Also it should be “remain in service” not “remain in serve”...

    The numbers are off, this is the M7 numbering system. It should be 9771-9946.

    Finally, after all these long years (not a lot actually:D), we finally get a much anticipated dlc for the LIRR, can’t wait to pick this up from the Microsoft Store!

    Really hope that we get DM30AC too.If we got that too, then it would be the second complete route.

    I would hope to see a new and improved timetable mode come along with this train. LIRR is in need of more services.

    Yeah hopefully It makes the route more busier at the moment you're lucky to see 2 trains at a time

    The trains don’t stop, and I love that. The M7 has been lonely, I think we all have been patiently waiting for a new locomotive on LIRR. The M3 is a great choice. Can’t wait to learn some more information!

    This is awesome news. Thank you DTG for bringing these EMU's to TSW :) It is great to see the M3 Cosmopolitans on the LIRR route. This will indeed be a great addition to the simulator.

    With the iconic M3 we will get more variety to LIRR. And it's interesting to drive EMU's from different eras on LIRR than. The addition of a DM30 AC and GP38-2 (the Geep for freight action) in the future would make LIRR complete.

    Wow, finally, the M2/M4 train for TS1 is really nice, so hopefully this one is good as well, making LIRR fot TSW great again. The M7 is not bad, but gets boring as the only rolling stock on the route. Thanks a lot!

    No mention on service mode changes - prepare yourselves for no additional services and sub only.

    I'm that confident you can quote me when it's out.

    Quite interested to see this. I always assumed the real reason that LIRR was so quiet was that there was room for other services to be added with another train (since this is the only route that only has one option), so hopefully this will busy it up a little and not just sub in for the M7.

    I feel the same way as well smfh..I dont want no damn sub, at least add more scenarios and few more timetables...I'm still WANTING the DM30AC to fill in more service especially in and out of LIC and Hunterspoint Av...but I def thinking the same as u are and I be fricken disappointed

    Perhaps to Ronkonkoma. That is the furthest station on the LIRR that is away from NY-Penn Station. If we get the dual modes and the bi-level coaches in the future, it would be great to see the Port Jefferson branch or trackage to Montauk.

    Looks like an older version of the M7. I really like the cab design.
