4.1.4 New York

NYCTA line 2

Screen dump of a view from the line
Description:
Line 2 in New York's subway (the Brooklyn line with the Flatbush branch line, part of the West Side line with the Brooklyn branch line, and finally the White Plains line, all former IRT), for the subway train class R142 or class R36 Redbird. The line begins at Flatbush Avenue/Brooklyn College in Brooklyn and goes through, among other stations, Times Square/42nd Street on Manhattan, there this simulation ends, to Wakefield/241st Street in Bronx. A simulation of the line all the way has years ago been heard of, but nothing further is known about that now. Detailed stations! Plenty of trackside signs and signals (with correct signal numbers). Soft curves and realistic switches, and also announcements of all stations and connections.

Known problems:
In OpenBVE there are problems with transparency in the graphics that don't work. It shows as blue lines around the destination signs on the class R-62 trains that appears along the line.

The problems can be fixed by changing in the definition files for those graphic objects. In the directory Railway\Object\WestsideA\cars are the files r62_1.b3d, r62_3.b3d, r62_4.b3d, r62_5.b3d, r62_7.b3d and r62_9.b3d.

In each of these files the word Transparent followed by three numbers appears at 6 lines. Change in each of these files so the 4 first appearances of the Transparent-instructions are Transparent 0, 0, 255 and the 2 last are Transparent 255, 0, 0.

Misc.:
The timetable for this version of line 2 for BVE is not according to real life. Because of that you will be late to those stations for which times are entered in the simulation's timetable. If you keep up with the real world timetable, you will in the simulation be late to the different stations according to the table below:

NYCTA line A

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.

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.

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:
