Getting Railroaded

Alright, first off let’s file this under “Nitpick”, and then “Wishlist”.

I just want to say that after the first time riding through it, I’m very impressed with the Richmond makeover. It makes the route very believable. However, if there is one thing that kills the believability of it for me it’s the trains. That high speed train running on the overhead trestle does not exist in America. I don’t know if Amturd actually even runs at all in Richmond. The bulk of American rail traffic belongs to boxy, dirty diesel locomotives with long strings of freight merchandise. And they move really slow compared to the passenger trains Europeans are used to. Here is a pic I found on the interweb, staged in Richmond by the two companies who own most of the tracks there:

Make this change and the route immersion will be perfect, for me at least.
