Or just keep going Express, since almost that is the program of the entire route. But it would be nice to see a start in a yard. I know you guys can build yards, I like the small scale one that was on the (Q).


some of the NYCT routes start at a yard. Like the Brooklyn Bound (C), and the (X) to perth Amboy

The X & the C don't start at the yard.

They begin the route from a lay-up track which is different. The yard for the C is Pitkin Yard which is all the way in Brooklyn/Queens right after Grant Avenue.

Like the R Shuttle and the F train routes. Right after you finished the run you place the trainset onto a lay-up track.
On the F, right after 179 st, and the R after 36, you place the train on a layup track, not in the yard.

Heres an example of what a train yard looks like.



What YankeesPwnMets mean is to start the route from the yard itself and move on to the destination
As you see in the video the train moves out of Coney Island Yard which is just near the Ave. X station

Actually, there IS a yard just north of 168th street, the 174th street yard. It is underground, and is used to store the (C) trains, so technically the (C) line does start from a yard. The Pitkin yard is mainly used to store the (A) trains, not the (C)

Right. Pitkin is used to maintain the R46s on the (A). Just because it is right after Euclid doesn't mean it is for the (C).

I think i'll update you guys on what i have been working on. I was planning on releasing this with the F v5 as a bonus scenario but since then i decided to add more "time based scenarios". So here is what i have been working on:






And of course i wouldn't release this without a proper rollign stock so here are some previews of the BMT Standard:


 


The scenario will have a 1969 F from CI to 57-6ave with proper rolling stock along the route [r16/r30/r32/r40s/r40m/r42]
and a 1954 pre IND connection of the F from CI to 9 ave lower level . If i get a hang of the coding and have more time i will also add a scenario where it will continue going after 9 ave , merge with the 4 ave subway and travel to Chmabers Street. That's a long shot but it's what i have planned .

I will post more details soon!

Who ever is coding the 2 line can use that for the Pelham Parkway station. It looks similar to the wall and roof at that station.
