NYCTA line Q

Screen dump of a view from the line
Line Q in New York's subway (Brighton line, Manhattan Bridge, Broadway line, 60th Street tunnel and Astoria line; all former BMT) for the various classes of subway trains. The Q line begins at Astoria-Ditmars Boulevard in Queens, goes to Manhattan and then to Brighton Beach in Brooklyn. 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. Soft curves and realistic switches, announcement of stations and connections. No less than 25 alternatives for the whole or parts of the line with various train classes and time of day.

Known problems:

There are more objects to download for this line than is mentioned on the route's download page. All archives listed in the Download from-section below are needed to get this route to display the graphics properly.

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:
