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 R44 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.
