Street tunnel and Astoria line; all former BMT

The team behind this route provides a well-done and beautiful simulation of the highest class. Stations, trackside objects and the urban environment is detailed.

The graphic object for facing switches at 57th Street, 34th Street, and some 700 m before DeKalb Avenue shows the switch in the wrong position. A trailing switch 375 m beyond DeKalb Avenue is also shown in the wrong position.
The directory names of the directories to which a certain train class installs are not always the same as the directory name expected in the Q-line route definitions. Then manual selection of train is needed in OpenBVE
. The corresponding train directories' names are as follows:
|Train dir. in route||Use train dir.|
|R160||R160 Alstom - 10 car|
|R160A||R160 Alstom - 10 car|
|R160 Siemens OpenBVE||R160 Siemens OpenBVE|
*) = Any
train is not available for OpenBVE
. The R1 is a replacement to get an old subway train for the fan trip route alternative.
