Screen dump of a view from the line
Description:
Line G in New York's subway (part of the Brooklyn/Queens Crosstown line plus a part of the Queens Boulevard line, both former IND). The line starts at a lay-up track just before Smith/9th Street. Select from a rush hour alternative to Court Square for the class R32 Brightliner subway train, or two local alternatives for the class R42 subway train all the line to 71 Avenue and a lay-up track beyond that station. The creators' of the line have taken some effort to get the signal aspects similar to reality. Generic stations, few trackside details and details at stations.

Misc.:
This line uses graphical objects from the NYCTA E line, which must be installed before this line can be used.

The route that i simulated for line G is not the present, but as it was from December 16 2001 to July 5 2009, when the line in Brooklyn was extended to Church Avenue due to the reconstruction of the Culver Viaduct.

The alternative Local OPTO means that a short train, 4 cars, is operated by a motorman alone. Otherwise the trains are manned by a motorman and a conductor.
