Looking for More Things to Do in Springfield? Get Your Workshop Scenarios Here!

Have you already run all the scenarios that shipped with the route? Are you looking for more things to do in Springfield, Hartford, New Haven and points between?

Steam Workshop may be what you are looking for.

As of today, fifteen additional scenarios for the Springfield Line route DLC can be downloaded there, with a total playtime of well over ten hours!

I have created a Workshop Collection for all the Springfield Line scenarios so that you can find them all in one place. The collection includes a wide variety of scenarios, covering almost everything from yard switching to high speed passenger running. It features scenarios by authors StevenJam, RolandBP, tompallen, Joshua Harkness and me.

Here is the link to the Workshop Collection:

Enjoy the new scenarios for the Springfield Line!

New Haven Budd RDC for Springfield Line 3

The New Haven Budd RDC Add-On is back!

Updated for the Springfield Line route 3.0, our New Haven Budd RDC add-on is now available exclusively at the Trains & Drivers website.

All four RDC variants of the New Haven are included in this add-on: the passenger RDC-1, the passenger/baggage RDC-2, the passenger/baggage RDC-3, and the mail express RDC-4. All cars come in DuMaine and McGinnis era liveries. Versions of Amtrak rebuilt cars, with the headllights mounted on top of the roof ends, are included too.

This add-on includes four different variants of the RDC and replaces the former RDC Budd New Haven Pack1 and RDC Budd New Haven Pack2. If you already own the RDC Budd New Haven Pack 1, you have free access to this update. Just re-download through your customer account.

Budd RDC Returning to the Springfield Line

Anyone fancy a Budd?

Our NH Budd RDC model will soon make its comeback on the Springfield Line 3.0. We have updated the scenarios for the latest version of the route and testing is going well so far. The models should get re-released at our friends at Trains & Drivers very soon. Those who already own the old version will of course get a free update of the scenarios.
