Maybe I missed it, but I did not see a reference to any industries. I would like TSW to transform from point to point activities to some actual industrial delivery and switching.

Perhaps it depends upon how one defines "industries," but the article notes the Waste Management Harlem River Transfer Station (loading site for New York's "trash trains) and Hunts Point, home to the massive Hunts Point Produce Terminal complex, both of which provide opportunities for switching operations (as do Oak Point Yard and Fresh Pond Yard)

I think he’s talking about more than switching. However, isn’t loading and unloading coal (or coal substitutes like sawdust, etc) basically the only real industry service that’s been modeled in TS? I’m not sure what industry delivery would be possible on the route other than switching.

For one. I'm looking forward to this new DLC's freight operations. Even though they seem to duplicate scenarios included with the equivalent TS route, operating them in TSW's graphical environment will be a treat. Just reading this article also makes me all the more eager for the arrival of scenario making possibilities in TSW. Come on, March 15!

I'm looking forward to this release as well, mostly because it's my home turf with Sunnyside yard and Hellgate being a 2 minute drive or a brisk 20 minute walk away.

You live in NYC and do all these great mid-western routes? Amazing *!lol!*

Trash trains .... odour included?

(The trash trains that run here smell awful despite being fully sealed, only the trucks that collect cadavers from farms smell worse and these are fully sealed as well)

Just a moment, I've just been reading this article, it states that this route comes with a GP38-2 in CSX YN3 livery, well, we already have one of those, along with an SD40-2 and an AC4400CW all included with the CSX Heavy Haul route, as well as several very nicely made items of CSX freight rolling stock, and of course, we all rushed out and bought the GP40-2 in CSX colours when that was released on Steam, BUT, can we play with those locos and freight cars on this New York route, they are all very appropriate for CSX operations, there's no mention of it anywhere, and if not, then, why not?

Cheerz. Steve.

Just to be clear, the CSX GP38-2 as included with Sand Patch is in the YN2 ("Bright Future") and YN3b ("How Tomorrow Moves" logo) liveries as compared to the upcoming YN3 livery.
