what a puchbox and this route look hot

A punchbox is a device at some stations (stations just before a point where routes diverge, or a point where one route goes express and the other goes local) that train operators use to tell the dispatcher which route they are driving, so the dispatcher can correctly switch the tracks for them.



BTW, the route looks gorgeous!

Well you can't really use it because there is no mechanism to switch tracks in game. It does represent the location that you actually have to "punch" for to get a line up in real life. This is why you have to be careful not to overrun, or you will not be able to "Punch" for a line up.

Sorry for the lack of updates, I have been working on revising the Brighton line for some bugs that people reported. The newest update [version 8] (should be released this week) will go to Coney Island, thanks to the excellent coding and extension of the route from Brighton Beach - done by JayJay85, and will feature:

  • Bug fixes reported from the last release
  • Updated Scenarios
  • Punchboxes!
  • Moving AI trains


Here's some screenshots from the latest build:

Punchbox at Prospect park


Approaching Kings Highway (New Station house hanging overhead)


Punchboxes at Kings Highway:



All of this will be in version 8.

Version 9, well, is a different story. I will be working very hard and rebuilding the Brighton portion from the Ground up, with brand new building objects that are similar to what they are in real life, weather scenarios and a bunch of other goodies. After that is done, I will pass the route to JayJay85 and he will work on creating a Brighton Local version. So stay tuned for more updates regarding Version 9.
I can't wait until this update!!!! Maybe Mudwrestle will want to update his R160 FIND Q to Coney Island when this comes out. Really can not wait!!!

Sort of. I'm working on a scenario that runs from 96 Street-2 av to Coney Island via Lex-63 St and Broadway. So it touches the 63 st tunnel. No promises on a 21 St queensbridge to Coney Island via B'way yet.

That would be JayJay's work, he put the station together and BStyles created the phenomenal roof object for the station. I just fixed the position of some station objects to make it a bit more realistic. In version 9 i would like to replace all textures with High quality ones and add more objects (TV's, Station direction boards, etc.).


On another note, i'm hoping for a Friday night release this week (for version 8 ). I might require some Beta testers for pre release checking so please PM me if you are interested.

That's in version 9. This will run via Brighton Express.

This route is looking so amazin Mr.Railfan. Keep up the amazing work. PS Are you going to make a Q via the R line? The reason why i am asking was that, i was on the Q train and somehow there was broken track at Dekalb Av, so the Q train was switch over to the R Line all the way up to Canal St then it was switch back to the express track at Canal St.  :) :D ;D
