About This Content

Amtrak’s Northeast Corridor: It is a crown jewel of American railroading. And the bustling southern portion of the “NEC” – from Baltimore, Maryland, to America’s capital city – now comes to Train Simulator 2021!

Train Simulator’s Northeast Corridor: Washington DC - Baltimore route re-creates the corridor from Washington Union Station to Baltimore’s Penn Station, a distance of 41 route miles. Washington Union Station, one of America’s most grand and beautiful rail stations, is second only to New York Penn Station on the NEC in passenger arrivals and departures, and historic Baltimore Penn Station is busy as well.

With the Corridor hosting Acela high-speed trains and regional and long-distance services, Washington is a busy and vital operating hub for Amtrak. Located nearby Washington Union Station are K Tower, which governs movements in and out of the station; the Amtrak coach yard; and famed Ivy City, home to facilities which provide state-of-the-art support to Amtrak’s high-speed train equipment.

Between its namesake cities, the Northeast Corridor: Washington DC - Baltimore route passes through open pine country typical of coastal Maryland and crosses rivers including the Anacostia, Patuxent, and Patapsco. The line is primarily triple track and, of course, is high-speed territory, with track speeds of up to 125 mph.

Between Washington and Baltimore, the Corridor hosts two Amtrak stations: New Carrollton, Maryland, and the BWI Marshall Airport station. The Northeast Corridor also serves as the Penn Line of commuter carrier Maryland Area Regional Commuter (MARC), which operates additional stations at Seabrook, Bowie State, Odenton, Halethorpe, and West Baltimore. Odenton is also home to an important Amtrak maintenance of way base.

Few are the cities in America with a longer or deeper connection to railroading than Baltimore, and Baltimore Penn Station is a memorable structure built by the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1911. The station rests near the north portal of the historic Baltimore and Potomac Tunnel. The “B&P” Tunnel dates to 1873 and stretches more than 7,600 feet in length.

The Train Simulator Northeast Corridor: Washington DC – Baltimore route includes a variety of contemporary Amtrak equipment, including the Siemens ACS-64 and Amfleet I and Amfleet II passenger equipment, the stylish and fast Acela, and passenger equipment suitable for Amtrak’s long-distance trains. For commuter service, an unbranded MPI MP36PH-3C and Bombardier MultiLevel equipment are included

It’s time to climb aboard Amtrak’s high-speed Acela and flashy ACS-64 speedster to experience American passenger railroading at its best – with the Northeast Corridor: Washington DC - Baltimore route for Train Simulator!
