This is a way to lighten my day. My fish just died and I didn't even have it for a full day. Thanks Sam. :)
Also, will there be a 5000 series train to go with it?

Omg. Ty so so very much Sam.😁👍👍👍 I have been waiting on this for 7 years. This is long overdue. I am from Chicago and seeing as though that our system is sort of the third knockoff of the NYCT system I was hoping someone would get started on it sooner or later. Yes the yellow line would be a great place to start seeing as though it's the shortest with only three stops. I would suppose that you all would move on to the Purple Line next. Maybe just the Purple Line shuttle from Linden Wilmette  to Howard Street. Your major projects are going to be red blue green and orange lines. These are the most detailed and longest routes. Good luck and as I learn more at school on how to write chaining code I can begin to be of more assistance to you. Until then if you need pictures and sounds I will be glad to send them to you. Message me if you need to talk. Thanks again and good luck.

the 5000 series Bombardier is what belongs on the yellow line. They are flooding them throughout the system right now. We are over 15 years behind getting our NTT rail cars. All of the SMEE rail cars have mostly been phased out already. So I would suggest start with current rolling stock first and then go back to the classics. However, with doing these NTT rail cars they are going to be just as highly detailed as the R 160 s so be aware what you're up against. Again I can help you with pictures and sounds if needed.

That works too since the Morrison Knudsen's 3200 series design is very similar to the Bombardier 5000 series. Be aware that those have DC traction motors. I will begin to gather sounds and head over to the brown line and take some pictures of the under carriages. The grade of the brown line toward the end of the line is at ground level. Very easy to get pictures. Then I will head back over to the yellow line and get your announcements inbound and outbound. I'm extremely excited to help in any way that I can since I am here in Chicago.

please accept some of my help I really would like to be a part of this in some way and live sounds live video live pictures directly from the source would be better than just getting it off the internet. This is something that I had been planning on doing myself for very many years in the fact that you guys are getting into it I'd like to be a part of that if I could please it would mean a lot to me. You guys grew up on the mta system and I grew up on the cta system this is part of my childhood and I'd like to help you all displayed to the world. If you go back and some of my threads you will see how very knowledgeable I am of this entire system and how my knowledge could play a very big roll until helping you all design these trains and the routes. Please don't just shut me out like that because you don't know me. Try getting to know me first before you pass judgement.

Well maybe in the near future. Again i feel as though im being shut out on this project because I'm not known to you all and i believe this is unfair. I have good equipment and a good eye for detail not to mention you guys are trying to put together things from my home city. How? When you don't live here? Im not tryina come at u like dat but im feeling mighty disrespected right now because I was under the impression that we all work together and that this was a freeware game where the public could have some input on development and design. I understand you all are the masters but when it comes to things from other cities you should allow some people from those cities to have some input it would be only fair. It's not like we're up to make any money off of this I'm doing it for the love of transit. Things like this have been my dream since I was 4 years old and now you being over 1300 miles away from my city trying to create something from my city telling me I can't have any input. How does that sound?

I hope you know Sam and I initiated this project TOGETHER and you shouldn't be upset because we simply don't need hell right now
