Will 3rd rail gaps be put in on this route?

on the SMEE version - yes ,even though alot of smee's have batteries to prevent power loss .

NTT version - no , the NTTS have a battery that prevents the loss of power .

Just fyi, but NTT's still lose traction and HVAC power when going over third rail gaps.

I do believe we have an M7A for BVE/OpenBVE. Not sure about where to download from.

That train is no longer in the public domain, as it's creator has pulled it from the web.

You need to go into the "train.dat" file and change the value for the "brake up" delay.

Here are instructions:

Go to the "delay section."

The propulsion sound is a result of the differing Alternating Current Frequencies produced by the Inverter Equipment.

The differing in frequencies is intended as it is used to control the motors, a side effect is the production of the sounds you hear which correspond to the AC frequency.

Essentially, yes. The ES64U2 uses first generation GTO (Gate turn off thrystors) units to modulate current to the traction motors, while the ES64U4 has second generation IGBT (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors).
GTO's have a limited chopping capability, hence the older sounding current noise, which tends to have more distinguished frequency changes, as opposed to the IGBT, which can vary frequency at a much higher rate, which produces not only the higher pitch sound, but the more smooth "sound curve" as seen in the ES64U4. IGBT's tend to be more quiet as well due to this capability.

Hey guys =) so I've been looking around for suitable trains to drive on this upcoming route, and I can gladly say that there are several well developed European long distance trains that are suitable for temporary usage until an actual Amtrak train is created.

For instance, I suppose you all remember the famous musical locomotive; the Siemens Eurosprinter ES64U2 Locomotive, yes?

Taurus 1116

Well, you can find that set here:

The site is in Hungarian, but you can use google translate, or go to the menu tab that says "Letöltések"
Then scroll down to Open BVE Vehicles, and then again to "1116 Taurus RailJet" and click "Letöltés" to save the rar file. you know what to do from there. Hope you guys enjoy it =)

EDIT: If you wish, you can also go here:
And download the IGBT version of the locomotive (ES64U4) This train lacks a consist, but the trucks of the locomotive pivot, providing a more realistic cornering effect.

Great work with what ur doing with it man =) Just wondering, but how much work would it be to smooth out the curves?

What do the run numbers on buses represent? Say I have a B47 run #15 or so, what would that mean?

My guess is that the designation is just for internal purposes to keep track of scheduling and employee assignments and whatnot.

Someone on the inside would be able to elaborate on that to much greater detail.

LOL on bve they are... the motormen that were in charge of the train on the 17th were pretty fine tuned with their stopping. And yea, about the railfan window. It's bound to be packed on the 24th, and I was lucky to get two runs where i could be right up against it. Your best bet to catch the railfan window is to wait at the 8 car marker of either 2nd avenue or Queens plaza, and make sure you're there well before the train is expected to pull in. that way, you're the first one on board. Also, they do give priority to children at the railfan window, so be courteous. Here's my railfan video that i posted elsewhere; it should give you an idea of what to expect...

Riding New York City Subway R6 1000 (Full Route) From Queens Plaza to 2nd Avenue

The entire trip is scheduled to take approximately 30 minutes, so if you are wondering when trains are scheduled to arrive at a certain terminal, look at the departure schedule and add 30 minutes onto any departure time, and that will give you the arrival time for the opposite terminal. For example, the 12:57 departure from 2nd Avenue will arrive at Queens plaza by 1:30. Then it will depart Queens plaza at 1:42, arriving back at second avenue at around 2:10.

The train remains at the platform at 2nd avenue when reversing, but it has to switch sides at Queens plaza, so when you get off on the Queens end, you have to walk up the stairs to the opposite platform and wait for it to pull in.

I chose to leave the sound in, and I think I will for any other time lapse I create, since I do find it kind of hilarious to listen to the sped up sounds. Feel free to disagree with me =p. The x2 speed comes first, and an x4 speed follows. Let me know which is better. PS, I have included the original unmodified clip at the bottom in it's full length for anyone who wishes to watch the full ride at normal speed to enjoy. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all =)

They combine Mando,Canto. That is new to me and very cool. I speak Mandarin. I am guessing that you and error speak cantonese. :) :)
Yep, although for me, listening to the mixed announcements on MTR trains for so long has allowed me to understand some of the mandarin used there =P

lol kinda reminds me of those canto announcements too

btw how are you guys faring out there with Jay Walder..any service cuts yet? LOL

LOL I actually live in the NY metro area, but my family hails from HK, so I do keep regular tabs on that area. A quick check on the MTR website reveals pretty good news actually, from 1500 open jobs at the company, to the placement of the first new C Train set into revenue service last night ( So with the accounted time difference, the set has been operating for about 8 hours now. 港鐵 KTL C-Train C359 彩虹至黃大仙 ( 錄音 )

EDIT: There is also apparently an openBVE model of the train exterior out already... sounds haven't been updated yet though....

I'm planning to do the Whole North East Corridor but I need:
Distances (it could be done by google maps but just trackmaps will help out)
December 17th will be the groundbreaking of the development on the Amtrak ;D

Hope the sections of track from the track maps I linked to you are helping then ;)

Rome, do me a favor and extend this to Philly! lol jkjk

LOL now a REAL treat would be if someone with some spare time decided to make commuter stock (MNRR/LIRR/NJT type trains) so that we can realistically run them on this line. That would be WELL appreciated =)
