Another question: Does the Manhattan bound Concourse Express actually run on the local track? There were many switches to the express track and I was wondering why the train didn't use those switches...

In reality, the southbound (D) express uses the "diverging" track to the right just south of Bedford Park Blvd, which becomes the express track from Kingsbridge Rd to 145 St.

@YankeesPwnMets:
During the AM Rush btwn 6:xx to 8:57 am S/B (D)'s run express when leaving Bedford they go straight instead of diverging to the middle track b\c straight there is a dip that goes under nthe local track and the train will end up on the express track at Kingsbridge(similar configuration to the D/F btwn 47th-50th and 42nd S/B.
All other times they run local S/B in the Bronx.The D makes those exp stops(Fordham,Tremont,145th) skipping 183rd and skipping 5 other stops btwn Tremont and 145th.Its damn slow though.

I'd suggest converting all the textures to png to save file size.

During off hours, some (D)s wrong rail between Bedford and 205, so those tracks are certainly used.

By the way, Jay is it possible to remove that yellow shading from the .csv file of the (D). It's strange seeing the light emitted during the daytime.

My Dell can't handle this route :P Oh well... time to install my spare nVidia GT 430 in it. However, I took a run with this using my laptop and the visuals seem very nice. Tjay's signals in it would be very nice as well.

Another question: Does the Manhattan bound Concourse Express actually run on the local track? There were many switches to the express track and I was wondering why the train didn't use those switches...

in real life it goes express on the Express middle track on the concouse. that will be fix later on

the reason why the file size is large is due to the A updated, B, Q, W and H lines will used this folder otherwise this folder would've been smaller

@Ddatrainman: It's actually "Norwood, Bronx", not "Inwood...". Inwood is in Northern Manhattan.

The reviews on the Brooklyn Bound D Line looks good I am so tempted to download but I am not sure if my P3 550 will be able to handle this route it along cannot handle the new F Line in which I have not yet to operate cause it crashes on my pc . OpenBVE is out of the question for my computer also tried it had to do a hard boot  >:( but hopefully in the future I shall get top notch pc designed just for all the BVE Routes

After almost a forty-five download through an internet connection in which three other people are using, I was prepared to have a good route.

I got to say that this route is awesome!  8) I was waiting for a full D since like forever!

Hey guys, lets get some screenshots on the gallery!

I took one at the Fort Hamilton Parkway curve on the screenshots section. If someone could move that as a (D) screenshot, would be appreciated!
