Screen dump of a view from the line
Line R in New York's subway (the Astoria line, the Broadway line and the 4th Avenue line, all former BMT) for the class R-46 subway train. This line starts at Astoria - Ditmars Boulevard in Queens. It is going via Manhattan to Bay Ridge/95th Street in Brooklyn. This is the route the R line had until May 24, 1987. 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.
