    The route Washington, D.C. - Fredericksburg, VA is owned by CSX and Passenger trains are operated by Virginia Railway Express (VRE) and Amtrak. VRE trains operate with MP36PH-3C locomotives and Amtrak operates with P42DC locomotives. One major thing that cannot be forgotten is that when Amtrak gets Washington DC they must switch locomotives, this MUST be included! (Route is 54miles long)

    I would definitely like to see more commuter rail services in the us hopefully this route will be available sometime soon in the future.

    DTG always has problems getting permission from NA commuter operators, and they've never put more than 3 driving cabs in one DLC, so who knows how realistic this actually is... but... I still think this is a good route, because... if you think about it, we have all the rolling stock we need for this route except the P42 (CSX freight from Sand Patch Grade, VRE Gallery cars from Peninsula Corridor, MP36 from Caltrain MP36, amfleets from NEC)... if a P42 comes out before an editor, this seems like a good idea for a 3rd party community route, TBH...
