NYCTA line 2

Screen dump of a view from the line
Description:
Line 2 in New York's subway (the Brooklyn line with the Flatbush branch line, part of the West Side line with the Brooklyn branch line, and finally the White Plains line, all former IRT), for the subway train class R-142 or class R-36 Redbird. The line begins at Flatbush Avenue/Brooklyn College in Brooklyn and goes through, among other stations, Times Square/42nd Street on Manhattan, where this simulation ends, to Wakefield/241st Street in Bronx. Detailed stations. Plenty of trackside signs and signals (with correct signal numbers). Soft curves and realistic switches, and also announcements of all stations and connections.

Known problems:
In OpenBVE there are problems with transparency in the graphics that don't work. It shows as blue lines around the destination signs on the class R-62 trains that appear along the line.

The problems can be fixed by changing in the definition files for those graphic objects. In the directory LegacyContent\Railway\Object\WestsideA\cars are the files r62_1.b3d, r62_3.b3d, r62_4.b3d, r62_5.b3d, r62_7.b3d and r62_9.b3d.

In each of these files the word Transparent followed by three numbers appears at 6 lines. Change in each of these files so the 4 first appearances of the Transparent-instructions are Transparent 0, 0, 255 and the 2 last are Transparent 255, 0, 0.

The timetable for this version of line 2 for BVE is not according to real life. Because of that you will be late to those stations for which times are entered in the simulation's timetable. If you keep up with the real world timetable, you will in the simulation be late to the different stations according to the table below:

NYCTA line 6

Screen dump of a view from the line
Description:
Line 6 in New York's subway (the Pelham line and the East side line, both former IRT), for the class R-142A subway trains. This line begins at Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx and goes to Manhattan and ends at the Brooklyn Bridge station. Then the empty train goes through the abandoned City Hall loop station and arrives at the northbound track at the Brooklyn Bridge station. The team behind this route provides a well-done and beautiful simulation of the highest class. Stations, trackside objects and the urban environment are detailed. Soft curves and realistic switches, announcement of stations and connections.

NYCTA line A

Screen dump of a view from the line
Description:
Line A in New York's subway (8th Avenue line and Fulton Street line, both former IND), for the class R46 subway trains. The simulated alternative of the A-line starts at 207th Street far north at Manhattan and ends in Ozone Park/Lefferts Boulevard in Queens. Included is also a simulation of the Lefferts Boulevard Shuttle. The shuttle line starts at Euclid Avenue in Brooklyn and goes to Ozone Park/Lefferts Boulevard in Queens. This shuttle line is only operated at night. During daytime ordinary A-line trains serve that part of the line. Detailed line, both stations and trackside! Soft curves and realistic switches, announcement of all stations and connections.

The simulated line starts at a track in the 174th Street Depot at northern Manhattan, from which the train goes to the 168th Street station at Manhattan to start revenue service. Revenue service ends at the Euclid Avenue station in Brooklyn, from which the train is moved off service to a track towards Pitkin Avenue Depot to change direction.

There are more objects to download for this line than is mentioned on the route's download page. This route uses the 6thAve and LisaRaye2 object packs.

However, there are also needs for objects that are not present in the object directory 6thAve even if it is downloaded. Also in the object directories included with the route, 8thAve and ind 8th avenue, there are objects missing.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of graphic errors in this route when using it with the most recent version of OpenBVE:
