The Hudson Line is one of the most famous, bustling, and scenic rail lines in America вЂ“ and now it comes to Train Simulator. Pulsing with Metro-North commuter, Amtrak intercity passenger, and CSX freight trains, the Train Simulator Hudson Line is packed with railroading challenges.
The Train Simulator Hudson Line route stretches along the east bank of the famed Hudson River from New York City to Croton-Harmon, New York, and serves three roles: it is Metro-NorthвЂ™s busy Hudson Line commuter route; it is the southern end of AmtrakвЂ™s Empire Corridor, home to AmtrakвЂ™s Empire Service intercity trains and long-haul trains such as the Lake Shore Limited, Maple Leaf, and Adirondack; and it is CSXвЂ™s Hudson Subdivision, providing freight service in and out of the Bronx and greater New York. In history and lore, the line was part of the fabled вЂњWater Level RouteвЂќ of the New York Central and path of the 20th Century Limited.
Train SimulatorвЂ™s Hudson Line features both of New York CityвЂ™s great stations вЂ“ New York Penn Station and classic Grand Central Terminal вЂ“ and then extends north along the wide Hudson River to the Metro-North shops and CSX yard facilities at Croton-Harmon, New York. The route also includes AmtrakвЂ™s West Side Empire Connection, Metro-NorthвЂ™s Park Avenue main line out of Grand Central Terminal, CSXвЂ™s Oak Point Link freight route and Harlem River and Oak Point Yards, and the section of AmtrakвЂ™s Northeast Corridor from the Bronx over Hell Gate Bridge to Sunnyside Yard and Penn Station. All told, the Train Simulator Hudson Line route features more than 20 stations and delivers approximately 60 route miles of intensive and captivating вЂњBig AppleвЂќ region railroading.
The Hudson Line from Grand Central Terminal to Croton-Harmon is electrified via D.C. third-rail and witnesses extraordinary volumes of Metro-North traffic, with the routeвЂ™s workhorse being MNCRвЂ™s flashy blue-and-silver M-7A electric-multiple-units, as are featured with the route. Joining the Metro-North M-7A on the route are an authentic variety of locomotives and equipment, which include MNCR and Amtrak P32AC-DM passenger locomotives, CSX SD40-2 and 3GS-21B вЂњGenSetвЂќ freight locomotives, Amtrak Amfleet passenger cars, and Metro-North Shoreliner commuter cars.
Train SimulatorвЂ™s Hudson Line route delivers fast-paced and challenging American commuter, passenger, and freight railroading at its contemporary best.
