Lol ;D Groundbreaking begins on Saturday, I might bring my laptop for updates on the pictures if this dinosaur laptop can survive.
This will Cover the whole NEC, the signals will be added later on as I continue researching its signals

If your planning on bringing your computer On board
Amtrak , I think you should besides the Am-fleet got the power outlets also.

Here is the Acela guys! i suggest downloading the BVE 2 Version so itll work in OpenBVE

There may be an OpenBVE version of the Acela coming up with an exterior and interior... but the route will be done first lol

http://wiki.bve-routes.com/index.php/OpenBVE_rolling_stock_for_USA#Locomotives

here are some train that could work for the route
Nice work Haven lol sorry for the late response was relaxing after going to Westerly on Saturday. I realized this route will take longer than any other BVE route. But I'm up for this challenge lol. Top the yards and stations that will also take time lol So stay tuned!

Hey guys =) so I've been looking around for suitable trains to drive on this upcoming route, and I can gladly say that there are several well developed European long distance trains that are suitable for temporary usage until an actual Amtrak train is created.

For instance, I suppose you all remember the famous musical locomotive; the Siemens Eurosprinter ES64U2 Locomotive, yes?

Taurus 1116

Well, you can find that set here: http://gothpaladinus.atw.hu/

The site is in Hungarian, but you can use google translate, or go to the menu tab that says "Letöltések"
Then scroll down to Open BVE Vehicles, and then again to "1116 Taurus RailJet" and click "Letöltés" to save the rar file. you know what to do from there. Hope you guys enjoy it =)

RailJet in openBVE 2011.11.22

EDIT: If you wish, you can also go here: http://clube-do-bve.blogspot.com/2011/05/siemens-taurus.html
And download the IGBT version of the locomotive (ES64U4) This train lacks a consist, but the trucks of the locomotive pivot, providing a more realistic cornering effect.

@Fan Railer, that's one hell of a train lol. Did they purposely make its propulsion sound like that, or did they happen to make it and it coincidentally sounded like that?

The propulsion sound is a result of the differing Alternating Current Frequencies produced by the Inverter Equipment.

The differing in frequencies is intended as it is used to control the motors, a side effect is the production of the sounds you hear which correspond to the AC frequency.

Essentially, yes. The ES64U2 uses first generation GTO (Gate turn off thrystors) units to modulate current to the traction motors, while the ES64U4 has second generation IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors).
GTO's have a limited chopping capability, hence the older sounding current noise, which tends to have more distinguished frequency changes, as opposed to the IGBT, which can vary frequency at a much higher rate, which produces not only the higher pitch sound, but the more smooth "sound curve" as seen in the ES64U4. IGBT's tend to be more quiet as well due to this capability.

the Acela was already made. Gotta search
ok good, btw updated the map, only 8 stops, well that's part of the NE region route...
Only problem is that there isnt an online track map :/

You can use MNRR's track map for the NY/CT portion
