Putting Abandoned stations in a route
« on: December 24, 2011, 04:45:18 pm »
This is just an idea, but it would be kinda cool if there were abandoned (ghost) stations in some of the routes that have them. Like the 6, 1, Manhattan bound Q or B.

IIRC, the old (N) Line from b-v-e.info has an abandoned station, but yes, it would be nice if we would have some in the new routes

I believe the 1 will have the abandoned 91st Street featured.

And Phantom909 doesn't mind one bit? I mean, would making abandoned stations in the routes pose a danger just like making emergency exits?

Considering the fact that the locations and existence of the NYC Subway's abandoned stations is so well documented, I doubt that the knowledge of abandoned stations gained from BVE routes will pose a danger.

I think the F express to 179th passes by the Bergen Street Lower Level , which is also abandoned.

It does, and it is abandoned.

And creating a route to look like the real thing already doesn't pose a danger?

As Hammers said as well, they are documented on sites fairly well as it is anyway.

I see. Both of you do make a point.
I brought that upbecause I wondered what others would think about it. I'm not trying to strike the idea down - I actually would like to see abandoned stations in the route (especially Myrtle Ave with the Masstransiscope).

The F I believe has the abandoned lower level of Bergen Street, in one of the runs, the BVE route actually runs through it as an express.  So, there you go, abandoned station in a BVE route.

The station is there, but it is not realistic (The Real Bergen Street Lower level is dimly lit with incandescent lightbulbs and those lights are off nearly all the time)

im working on the new F [version 5] and it will feature the correct bergen st lower level , with a dim lit area
