    Nah, let's keep them separate. For one, there's only one area the both of us are working in and two, there are other projects I'm deeply involved in so Metro-North isn't always going to have my full attention. These are pretty big projects so its going to take a while "years" before they're even ready for the public. I know he's got his hands full too but I'm sure in the future we can work together on a project. Time and patience is the key.

    Also to add in, my route has already been merged once before and became the New Haven Line.

    Ummm, Lukas?
    One thing.
    Open Pit Area (2001-2014)
    Closed Pit Area (2014-Present)

    I checked satellite images and 2001-June 2014 had open pit but as of October 2014 the pit got closed up for... development reasons.
    Sucks they did that because now railfans have to PAY to get into the station to railfan.
    I wish Amtrak still sold platform tickets.

    Will the route include Philadelphia Freight Yards and the CSX ex-B&O Capitol Sub

    Probably not for a while. Boston comes first. Then the yards a long the way.
