    26. Tristate Route features the DL&W mainline and branches from Hoboken, NJ to eventually Scranton, PA, the Erie Railroad mainline and branches from Port Jervis, NY to Jersey City, and connecting railroad lines during the mid/late 1920s to the early 1950s.

    An addenda to Tristate, beside the Erie and Lackawanna, it will have the NYS&W in it's entirety including the WB&E, the entire L&HR including track rights to Palmerton, Pa., and the L&NE in it's entirety.

    If I have any neurons left and the TDB permits, the CNJ and LV from Wilkes-Barre to Jersey City, and some of the Staten Island RR, a subsidiary of the B&O.

    On the The Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor there is a Tablet. On it is written:
    "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
    the wretched refuse of your teeming shore, send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
    I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

    Comment : It might be preferable, and more productive, to let the Route Builders, themselves, to indicate their commitment to certain Route projects .

    This way , there would fewer mislead expectations, as if a route builder himself would add one, or a few, of his projects to this list, this would imply a commitment from the Route Builder, himself, to either complete / upload it, or perhaps indicate a need to have others to help out, or form a team to deliver the Route .

    This would also avoid a few cases as seen in the past , whereby someone did "announce"/ "make known", they were working on specific Routes, but had to abandon the projects , for whatever reasons , and had some other builders, strictly based on such "announcements" , to decide to skip working on certain projects ( once again, on the basis that "so-and-so" was working on it , etc ...) .

    Great initiative with this list, Jerry ! '-)

    For all intents and purposes, Irvine, CA.


    31. Southern Pacific "Coast Line", LA-SF (in phases and with affiliated branches)
    a. Guadalupe - Watsonville ("Salinas Valley", soon to be released on Elvas Tower)
    b. Watsonville - San Francisco / Oakland (In progress)
    c. Guadalupe - Oxnard (Lower priority due to "redundancy", pends on Salinas re-trunking)
    d. Oxnard - Lancaster - Los Angeles, Commerce, and Dolores Yard (Again, pends on re-trunking and other variables)
    e. Steam era backdating of said route (proposed)

    32. California Northern West Valley Line. Davis - Tehama (Track laid, Scenery, Mosaic, and Roads going in.)

    33. SMART / Northwestern Pacific, Larkspur - Willits and Schellville - Novato

    As part of 31b, Caltrain's San Francisco - Gilroy operation (likely standalone)
    As part of 31c / 31d, 1960s-era Saugus Secondary and Ojai branch. (Also standalone)
