Thread: North East Corridor (NEC) in train games

  1. #1

    Default North East Corridor (NEC) in train games

    Good Morning!
    Here is a list of all the NEC routes I could find:

    Train Simulator: Northeast Corridor: Washington DC - Baltimore Route Add-On
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJkZyixEF3w
    30 euros on Steam; generally positive reviews;
    compared to MSTS it does not include Baltimore-Philadelphia... but apart from that segment, you could technically buy the whole Northeast Corridor from Washington DC up to Boston, MA

    NORTHEAST CORRIDOR by Amtrak for OpenBVE
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1A-AyVXQpnY
    free; no reviews but those "walls of trees" for scenery...
    compared to MSTS it does not include BWI-Philadelphia

    NEC v4 for MSTS/OpenRails
    free; haven't tried it yet, mainly because a lot of activities require missing files (the P42 retracted from trainsim.com...)

    PRR Eastern Region for OpenRails
    free (prr-east-v2-install.zip may be compatible with MSTS apart from activities); good reviews
    aside from going into Pennsylvania, it includes the NEC up till New York, making use of NEC 4.3.6.3 for the lower section

    Are there any other candidates I should know of?

    P.S. Relevant video (includes pre-v2 PRR route): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXeUK04z3DQ

    In Train Simulator you also have the Northeast Corridor: New York - Philadelphia Route Add-On, although, it was released in 2012, so, is showing its age a little now.

    I seem to recall also an NEC backdated to the PRR steam era, produced by someone in Italy.

    Yes. I have that route and I believe it takes place around 1916-18. The route goes from of course Washington to the old Broad street station.

    There is also one here in the F/L although unfinished it does go to New York. Terrain is pretty flat until you get to the Philadelphia area. This one has the present day track layout.
