    Cool MBTA ROUTE UPDATE - FRANKLIN LINE (NORFOLK STATION AND AREA ALMOST DONE!)

    Hello All,

    Hope you're doing well during these troubling times!

    Just letting you know that I will be posting images of the completed Norfolk Station and Area later tonight or tomorrow night.

    I will also post some pics of the developed Boston Skyline this weekend!!

    Stay Tuned!!!

    I have a question for all of you;

    • Does anyone have additional information on the Phases of the MBTA Franklin Line Double Track Project besides MBTA.com? I am planing on adding track between Franklin to Norwood Central after developing Forge Park Station.

    If I remember right this line uses a section of Northeast Corridor up until Readville station? Correct me if I'm wrong. As an added bonus have you considered having the NEC section stretch enough so the route could also be used for some good Amtrak runs? Or would South Station to Readville be fine already? Trainz needs more NEC...

    I have the NEC Section stretch to Route 128 Station to add some AI Trains (Amtrak and Providence/Stoughton Trains) to the route.

    Once I finish the Franklin Branch, I am going to add some details to NEC from Route 128 to South Station along with the Orange Line.

    TChauvet,
    This all looks really cool. Will your route also go to Logan International?

    Slenderman8888 is definitely right - we need much more NEC in Trainz.

    Yes,

    The MBTA Route will have All Subway Lines (Green, Red, Orange, and Blue Lines) and the Franklin and Fairmount (Dorchester) Branches of the Commuter Rail.

    I am saving the Blue Line for last as I am finishing the Franklin Line and working my way up to Boston to finish the Subway Routes.
