    Default New Metro-North update

    Hey guys, I haven't been here much due to life situations and have been giving random updates for what seems to be about 10 years now but I digress. Anyways now for the juice. Hudson Line track has been rebuilt, laid, and complete from NYP/GCT to Poughkeepsie. The New Haven line is currently being totally rebuilt and is currently up to Norwalk with the New Canaan line building. This portion currently is only accessible from GCT while the Pelham Branch and Sunnyside areas are building out. GCT and NYP are rebuilt and to actual track specs, GCT needs to be covered and 3rd rail placed. The Harlem Line is a mess and will need to be ripped up and rebuilt for another date. I've also added in a "what if" Putnum line as it would appear today if used however, this will be under 3rd rail electric and two tracks. I haven't decided how far It will go. All scenery is and will be modeled by me with only a few objects being the Empire State building and Broadway Bridge originally modeled by Mr. Ron Picardi.

    Thanks Chris but its a bit difficult for me to explain all its functions. I did however find a tutorial on how to use it in the link below.

    Great to see this project coming back to life! What era are you modeling in the route?

    This will be somewhat modern up to 2013 but room for past roads like PC and early Amtrak. Penn Station is still open and the old Tappan Zee is still in place.
