I have good news :)

1) I found the real font used for route signs in the 1960s - 1970s, which is the Unimark International, however, I couldn't find any download so I tried to make it via an image, but it was unsuccessful, but I found another font that looks exactly the same as Unimark International and it is Akzidenz Grotesk Bold.
So I remade all the signs with this font and made them simpler, and it looks more realistic and even better. Here are a few of them:







2) Since there are a lot of replies on this thread, I'd rather post less frequently and make major posts showing 10 stations, I think I don't need to make hundreds of posts for nothing, but this one was exceptional. Stay tuned for more, Canal Street is done and I'm currently at Chambers St, adding signs and other stuff.

EDIT: Sorry if the images didn't appear, I deleted the post on imgur like a dummy. I re-uploaded them

Really good job! I reckon some weathering of the textures could be good

Okay, here we go again! Finished Spring St, Canal St, Chambers St, Broadway - Nassau St, High St, Jay St - Borough Hall and Hoyt Schermerhorn Streets, including new signs and graffiti in tunnels. The Fulton Ave branch is already being worked on. I was quite busy with school and working on some trains otherwise I would have already been at Euclid Ave at least, keep in mind that my goal here is to finish the stations and add main details such as signs, and exits. All minor details will be added at the end.
I also featured my re-textured R16 and R30s and Mudwrestle's R32/38/40/M/42 that I also re-textured/fixed for personal preference reasons.
(The R40 series are still W.I.P. and not public so don't ask for them !!!)

Spring Street:


Canal Street with R16 A train:



Chambers Street - World Trade Center with R30 A train:




Broadway - Nassau Street with R32 A train:



High Street with R38 A train:



Jay Street - Borough Hall with R40M-R42 A train:





And finally Hoyt - Schermerhorn Streets with R40 A train:




Enjoy the pics and stay tuned for Nostrand-Utica-Eastern Parkway-Euclid and Grant Avenues!!

Wow, Great work and how did you get the preGOH trains?

A friend of William gave me the R40 trains to complete my preGOH collection cause he also developed them with him, especially the 1980s version.
William knows that I have them so I cannot get trouble, and maybe there's a chance I can develop with William, but he didn't answer yet.
I already fixed and improved them on my side and maybe he would get satisfied with what I done with them.
Hopefully there's a chance the R40 trains will get released soon!
The R32 and R38 are released, and the R16 and R30 in the picture no because I improved and re-textured them to add graffiti and other paint schemes (just like the bright red R16 in my signature for example), and didn't release them yet

. Lucky you. I must say I really love the touches youíve given to the preGOH trains. I especially love the graffiti and the parts where the paint has been stripped off. Hopefully the rest of us wonít have to wait much longer for those either since Iím looking to create a preGOH train collection just like you. If you can. Can you give me a rough estimate of how much longer it will take for the routes and preGOH trains to be completed and released? Just curious. And if you need any help I can try to do a bit when I donít have school to deal with. This is getting long but I would also like to know how did you do the announcements for the routes?

Thank you!
First of all, I'm reworking all the pre GOH trains I have, from the R16 to the R46, when I'll make different versions: Early 1970s, Late 1970s (Original interior with graffiti or new interior with yellow walls and interior orange doors), Early 1980s (Graffiti) and finally late 1980s before overhaul (Completely covered in Graffiti)
I'm currently at the R30 now and about to make the 1979 R30 with the new interior, and then the 1980s version. And after that move on to the R32 when I'll do exactly what I stated above
The reason why I'm doing it is to make the trains more realistic and have a large collection from different eras, so I will not get bored when running on my 70s routes. It's really complicated since every single trains were different and didn't get new interiors at the same time, it can be really confusing.
Regarding the release of these trains. I might create a new thread called "Vintage train workshop" when I'll basically show my work and share it with everyone. The thing is, all the trains are not mine: all I did was re-texturing them, so I don't know if I'll get trouble for that, I'll think about that.
Regarding the routes, if you are talking about all the routes I'm planning, it will take more than a year to finish them all. About the 8th Avenue lines including the A,AA,CC & E, it will take a bunch of months to complete them.
Regarding the announcements, I recorded them myself and added a background PA Wire sound and a intercom effect. That's it, it took a while but it was fun.

Since you are very interested I can invite you to a group with friends so you can follow all my work and we can chat every time. I don't want to have a lot of posts here.
Message me and I'll let you know :)

Change of plans: Since the B and D shares 8th Avenue/CPW with A, AA and CC lines, I might directly work on them after I complete all the 8th Avenue/Rockaway routes, that will include the B from 168 St Wash Hgts or 57 St - 6 Ave, the D from 205 St Bronx and the TT. I might keep the 1967 B from West 4 St as well.
I will update the project list soon.
The Fulton St branch is still being worked on, but skateboarding with friends, school and working on my vintage train collection is really slowing down the work. The L line is halted for a moment as I can't get textures and stuff since I don't live in NY.

Nice Progress So far but... I'm unable to open none of the RAR files from the 1970s Nassau St Routes, i downloaded all the files but when i tried opening the RAR archive it said: 'Unable to open...as an archive', any help?
