New Haven Springfield Line Scenarios
33 items
Description
The Bankers was one of several named express services of the New Haven RR that linked Springfield, MA to New York City's Grand Central Station. The Bankers left Springfield in the early morning, headed non-stop to Hartford, then on to New Haven with several stops along the way. After a few minutes in New Haven the train then headed non-stop to Grand Central.

This is the second of two parts of a scenario that put you in charge of this train. This part will start in Hartford, just where part 1 ended, and then take you all the way to the south end of the route in New Haven. You will stop be stopping in Berlin, Meriden, and Wallingford. I recommend that you play part 1 first, but the scenarios are not chained so it is entirely up to you.

The EMD FL-9 DLC and the Springfield Line DLC are required to play this scenario.

Recommendation: if you are looking for more challenging gameplay and modified sounds on the FL-9, please have a look at this sound & physics mod for the FL-9:

Nice run, I especially liked the arrival at New Haven neck-and-neck with that heavy freight.

Thanks for the kind words. Two more scenarios with the FL-9 have just gone live: The Connecticut Yankee, parts 1 and 2. That's the return run of this train here.

Nice run, both pts. 1&2. Thanks for the enjoyment!

This was an excellent high-speed route. Only by keeping the spedometer needle a few points below absolute track speed is it possible to make the aggressive schedule! This makes decellerating efficiently into low-speed zones a challenge. Major privilege to drive FL-9s in such a realistically modelled environment. Bravo!
