LIRR Atlantic Avenue Branch the sequel to LIRR Main Line
« on: January 22, 2011, 12:58:18 am »
The sequel to the LIRR Main Line demo route as featured by bill (to test his R160 Alstom) from Kew Gardens to Forest Hills
The R160 Alstom for OpenBVE

Announcing the LIRR Atlantic Avenue Branch.



This route will run from Atlantic Terminal to Jamaica.  I don't know what generation this route will be, you guys can decide.  As for accuracy, I'm doing the route based on photos, and videos that I've seen.  I'm also using Google Maps, and of course I've rode the route once, but its probably not enough for me to just memorize the whole ride, but might help me in terms of the feel lol :P  So dont kill me if its not accurate.  It'll be more accurate than my LIRR Main Line, but less accurate than the R.

This is just a side project for me, for fun, but I'll definitely try to make this a release.  If anybody has sounds, or photos and wants to help, I'll be more than happy to use them!

Enjoy!  :D

Dude, we said this before, the M7 EMU HAS, been made. It sounded like the old R143 by Eddie Yee,, but with a slower propulsion. It WAS on TTMG.org along with the R142, R29, R160A/B, until people started modifying Trevor Logan's trains which he didn't appreciate so he took all his trains down from the internet. So you're kinda behind dude.
If I were you, i would try and contact Trevor and ask for the M7 though the answer will most likely no. If i could help you, i would.

Back on topic... can't wait to finally see some LIRR action! and is there any possible way that you could send me that route you just ran? I wanna use it as a test track

Well, someone's going to have to make a train for this route eventually, unless you want to run this route with one of the NYCTA trains. Whether that's the M3 or the M7 is up to the creator.

@ipac: Can't wait.

P.S., is that an orange (Q) on those signs?

Where and when did the M3 come out?

The M3 was created a long time ago in the days of NYCTBA.com, the original BVEStation site.

Thankfully, the site has been preserved, courtesy of the Internet Wayback Machine, so the M3 is actually available for download here.

That is a Orange Q and Ipac got it right... If you go to the real Atlantic terminal they still have the orange Q stickers :P

Well, it is the MTA. Can't expect them to get everything right. At least the letters are correct; it could have had the (W) on the signs like it was at the 62 St station on the West End line until last June.

Interesting project Kevin I wish the best to you and I'm looking forward to a great route!
Ehh...since the M-3 & 7 aren't available it wouldn't hurt too use the R-46 or R-44 on this,I'm sure they'll pickup decent speed.We gotta tell Bill to ungovern his R-46 & make it look like an R-44 70's style lol.

No, Joe is working on it.
And we have been in talks about a new LIRR train. We're not sure what class yet because we can't get a decent panel though
