What will this DLC bring? A fully opened and operational Sunnyside yard, operating wash racks, etc. so the NEC:NY route will need an update?

Lets hope some talented re-painters can turn this engine into a CSX or Norfolk Southern unit, so its not stuck operating in Sunnyside Yard.

Has TSW finally come up with some free roam scenarios?

Just one so far Buzz, but, it's only for GP38-2s, so, a little bit restrictive, however, you can manually change a lot of junction levers and drive around the route for several miles.

I have driven a service in the cab car it was quite good, though, not being an expert on these things, I couldn't find any bugs, or, operating problems as such, maybe you experts can check to see that everything is in order, it took me a while to find where all the switches are, but, it's good fun, something different, now for the Switcher.

Yes, am hoping for some different re-paints.
