Ok cool. Where exactly (what street) in Parkchester will your shuttle train be stopping at? And what should the announcement say when transferring to it since Parkchester is its terminus? [Example: This is Parkchester transfer is available to the shuttle train to __________]

Parkchester/ Westchester Ave

For the announcement it should be:
"This is Parkchester. Transfer is available to the Shuttle, to 138 Street"

During Rush Hours, it should say:
"This is, Parkchester, transfer is available to the Westchester Ave Shuttle."

After a lot of thinking, I will include the Rush Hour (W) or Express (S) service inside the first version of the route.

Some Progress:
The yard has been worked on piece by piece, and I'm still making all the objects for it in SketchUp. I apologize I haven't been putting up screenies lately, it's because I'm dealing with school and family, etc.

Announcements:
I need to redo the announcements and use some real people for it, because honestly the announcements sound like a robot is saying it.

I've installed CBTC Signals in the yard plus the Yard Signals (Yard Signals are the ones that always display Red), but I sort of ran into some problems.

I have got the animation code for the signal to be blinking green, although I need to know how to make the signal change to Red over Yellow when the train passes through it. Does anyone know what code I have to add?

I can do the automated announcements if you want. Write down how you want each announcement to be played. Example: This is a Bronx bound 2 express train. The next stop is Chambers street. Or, This is Borough Hall, Transfer is available to the 3, 4, 5, and R trains.

Thanks, this is the rush hour announcement playlist, I have someone to do the regular announcements (and she sounds perfect at it to!)

"Shuttle Train, to the Bronx. Next Stop: 145 Street."
"145 Street. Connect to the: (A) (B) (C) and (D) trains. Transfer is a available to the (W) train."

"Shuttle Train, to the Bronx. Next Stop: 148 Street."
"148 Street. Transfer to the: (3) train."

"Shuttle Train, to the Bronx. Next Stop: 161 Street"
