TRTA Ginza line

Screen dump of a view from the line
Description:
The Ginza line in Tokyo's subway, for the class 01 subway train. The line goes from Shibuya/G01 to Asakusa/G19. For OpenBVE the elder BVE 2 and BVE 4 routes can be used. In both alternatives are the A1649 alternative that begins at G19 and goes to a lay-up track beyond station G01; the B1649 alternative goes in the opposite direction beginning at the lay-up track. For BVE 2 only there is also the B1507 alternative that begins also at the lay-up track at G01 and goes to the station Ueno/G16, where the train is taken out of traffic and is driven to the Ueno depot. Very well-made route with a lot of details, soft curves and realistic light conditions.

Misc.:
The following applies when driving from the Ueno station and to the depot: On the track to the depot is a stop sign in the track (white board with a circle in black with a horizontal line through the circle). Stop by that sign and wait until a yellow light in the distance becomes lit indicating that the road crossing protection ahead is activated. In the depot yard a place to stop again is indicated before the lay-up tracks. Finally, stop the train 5 m before the end of the lay-up track, then move the train carefully forward to the indicated stop position.

From April 1 2004 (no April fools' joke) every station in the Tokyo subway has a normal station name in Japanese, but also a number. The number is composed of a western letter and two digits. The letter indicates at which line the station is, the number which station counted from one of the line's terminal stations.

The Ginza line has the letter G and the stations are numbered from 01 till 19, the terminus station Shibuya is station G01 and the other terminus Asakusa is station G19.

This number system was implemented to make it easier for foreigners to ride the subway.
