4.1.4 New York

NYCTA line C

Screen dump of a view from the line
Description:
Line C in New York's subway (8th Avenue line and Fulton Street line, both former IND), for the class R32 Brightliner subway trains. 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. Detailed line, both stations and trackside! Soft curves and realistic switches, announcement of all stations and connections.

Known problems:
This simulation requires the NYCTA line R to be installed as it uses a graphic object from that line simulation. That is however not mentioned on the simulation's download page.

A facing switch at the exit from station 59th Street/Columbus Circle looks like it leads to the diverting track, but the train is going on the straight track. That can be fixed by editing the route definition file NYCT-C.rw changing the graphic object representing the switch:

Track map of the eastern part of the line in Brooklyn (blue tracks on the map from Kingston-Throop Avenue eastwards to the southmost track at Euclid Avenue, then to the southern black track towards Pitkin Avenue Yard, and over to the northern track towards Pitkin Avenue Yard, at which there is a stop position for changing direction of trains)
Misc.:
This simulation requires the NYCTA line A and the NYCTA line R to be installed as it uses graphic objects from those line simulations.
