    A fairly simple request, but I think adding a few of Union Pacific's Passenger equipment from the 50's to 1971 could be a good add on to Train Simulator. This DLC could represent the named trains of Union Pacific that traveled the Overland Route, such as the City of Los Angeles and City of San Francisco. Scenarios for this route could take place on either Wasatch Grade or Sherman Hill.

    The locomotives that could be included would be mainly E-Units, primary E8's and E9's.

    Passenger Equipment could be either ACF or Pullman, and include Baggage, Chair, Sleeper, Diner, and Dome Cars.

    I'd love to see some passenger cars in the greyhound/two-tone grey paint scheme. I believe Southern Pacific had some in a similar style for the Overland Limited.

    This is an excellent suggestion, though knowing DTG they'd just take an F unit, adapt it into an E unit, and keep the ancient Kuju sounds. I'd love Reppo to take this one on, UP's streamliners have great potential.

    I think E2s would be lovely, since they were made specifically for the City of Los Angeles. The nose style is really unique and stylish.

    Maybe we could get the original 1930s Streamliners, like the M10000, Burlington Zephyr, etc. I'd love those, along with a route backdated to that era.

    I am in full support of this, but I feel that it may be best left to somebody like Digital Train Model. I know for a fact that DTM would be interested as this is the era they like.
