About This Content

The Northeast Corridor is the United States’ premier passenger railroad line, linking Boston to Washington DC and moving thousands of passengers daily through this extremely busy part of the country. It ia also North America’s only high-speed line operating at speeds up to 150mph. Now available for Train Simulator, the Northeast Corridor Expansion Pack puts you in the cab of the classic EMD AEM-7 locomotive along the 90-mile core section between Philadelphia and New York City.

The railroad known today as the Northeast Corridor was in place from the early years of the 20th Century, with electric services between New York City and New Brunswick beginning in 1932, and with electrification as far as Trenton by 1933. The line was operated by New York Central and the Pennsylvanian Railroad (merging to form Penn Central Transportation) for many years until Amtrak took over intercity services in the early 1970s. In the late 1990s the Northeast High Speed Rail Improvement Program (NHRIP) was implemented in preparation for the high speed Acela Express service. The EMD AEM-7 electric locomotives, as featured in this expansion pack, were produced by the Electro-Motive Division of General Motors between 1978 and 1988, and the AEM-7 soon became a familiar sight as the workhorse of the Northeast Corridor.

The Northeast Corridor Expansion Pack is a faithful recreation of this bustling high-speed line, with fabulous skylines, miles of railroad to explore and hours of challenging driving for you to enjoy!

This DLC is full of issues, such as signaling problems, speed problems, among other things. One of the worst routes DTG sells on Steam when it comes to bugs.

This is by far, not my favorite route...

The included train (AEM-7) is pretty trashy, with a TERRIBLE cab, really bad horn and bell sounds (SW1500 aliased), and the traction motors sound exactly like those from the BR101 from Classic European Assets.

The route itself is pretty good, with high speeds, but it looks kindof bad, and theres not much to see. There is a bit of DLC for it though, including the newly re-worked Acela Express.

All in all, this is not a great route, but yes, I would recommend it, but buy it as part of the USA collection...

This only covers Philadelphia to New York, so you can't go to Boston or Washington. But hey, you can ride the Acela (sold separately)! Make of that what you will.

This is a real nice DLC Pack. I enjoy running the Fast Amtrak services, only thing is the consist's. they are set for 4-5 cars. Amtrak runs 6-7-8 carred services here. But this will make your heart race as fast as these trains!

Loved this add-on. But then had to buy new PC and got Win 8. Now can't play this add-on even though it is in my library. Any solution? Will this be upgraded to Win 8 soon?

I love it but there's something wrong with it or maybe it's my computer but everytime that I do a scenario on it there's like a dark green something or other that just shows up out of nowhere and it's making it hard for me to do scenarios on it and the sky isn't blue with clouds it's just white but otherwise it's a really really really good and detailed route

This route is fun to drive. It is fun running the high speed Amtrak trains up and down between Philly and New York(and sometimes freight between other areas). The route includes an AEM-7 with accurately made cab and desgin along with detailed amfleet passenger cars with good sounds. The locomotive horn is the same as the SW1500 horn which has a long loop! The route has many NJT and SEPTA stations but none of that stock has been made for the route. The route is also poorly detailed in alot of areas such as an important intermodal yard in New Jersey just outside NY. This route is not the best! I sill recommend it because it can be fun to drive. DTG also created the section of the NEC from NY to New Haven which is better detailed(and I will review it because I want it for Christmas!) which has the new Amtrak ACS-64 and CSX SD40-2 along other locos made for it including Metro-North!
