New York – New Haven Scenario Pack 02 delivers diverse passenger and commuter action in New York and New England
Extending from New York City’s two great passenger stations – Grand Central Terminal and Penn Station – north and east to the New England shore, Train Simulator’s popular NEC: New York – New Haven route represents one of North America’s busiest and most iconic rail routes. And now, New York – New Haven Scenario Pack 02 brings the diverse and bustling passenger and commuter action of this remarkable line to life in 10 new career scenarios!
New York – New Haven Scenario Pack 02 puts you at the throttle of a diverse range of Amtrak and Metro-North equipment and delivers challenging operations on Train Simulator’s NEC: New York – New Haven route. Let’s take a closer look at what is included:
Authentic Day-to-Day Operations
The Amtrak and Metro-North lines that radiate from New York City into Connecticut and New England host hundreds of passenger and commuter trains daily and call upon a variety of electric and diesel equipment. In New York – New Haven Scenario Pack 02, you’ll tackle the challenges, and enjoy the diversity, of realistic Amtrak and Metro-North day-to-day operations, whether it be hustling an early-morning Acela from Penn Station to New Haven; handling a Kawasaki M8-equipped “Harrison Flip back” rush-hour commuter into Grand Central Terminal; or taking the controls of Amtrak’s ultra-modern ACS-64 on a Northeast Regional service.
New York – New Haven Scenario Pack 02 also explores a number of realistic special operations on the busy route. You’ll be the engineer of a Metro-North “Yankee Clipper” service employing M8 EMUs to deliver baseball fans from Connecticut to New York’s 153rd Street Station adjacent to Yankee Stadium on MNCR’s Hudson line. You’ll be called for a deadhead move from New Haven shops to position a MNCR GE P32AC-DM and its train for duty the next day on the Danbury Branch. And you’ll take the throttle of a pair of Metro-North’s New Haven-liveried EMD FL9s as the classic locomotives power a railfan excursion from the Long Island Rail Road’s Long Island City station to New Haven via the towering Hell Gate Bridge.
Diverse Motive Power and Equipment
In the newly released New York – New Haven Scenario Pack 02, you’ll have the opportunity to tackle the different challenges of operating six types of Amtrak and Metro-North locomotives and equipment. You’ll take the throttle of America’s fastest and most-stylish train, the Amtrak Acela; Amtrak’s modern-day electric workhorse, the ACS-64 “City Sprinter” electric; and the powerful but often cantankerous Amtrak HHP-8 “Hippo” electric. And, when it comes to commuter or special operations, you’ll handle Metro-North’s unique Kawasaki M8 electric-multiple-unit trains; the dual-mode GE “Genesis” P32AC-DM locomotive; and the classic Electro-Motive FL9 dressed in iconic New Haven Railroad livery!
