I was wondering if Manchester Piccadilly and part of Manchester North sim could be updated to allow electrification of the lines between Chorley and Salford? This is a suggestion by the way and it would be grand idea to chain up with other sims when they appear etc.
I believe this is Phrase 3 of the Electrification program that should of been completed in May 2018 but now delayed until November 2018.
Northern will be testing a couple of there 319s between Euxton Jn and Manchester Oxford Road via Bolton around mid-November. In hope that then a handful of the diesel services will use 319s from December 2018.
I don't hold any information on Orsdall Chord curve so that's a little out of question for me.
I was thinking maybe a new 2018 era that features the electrified lines between Euxton Jn and Salford Cresent to Orsdall Jn, and through to Manchester Victoria via Salford Central.

Doesn't make sense to do any of the electrification without having the Ordsall Chord in the two sims. Never say never but it's not at the top of the list.

Valid point taken. As I don't hold that information I can't be of help for the actual chord etc. My electrification idea was a suggestion anyway.
