This is the thread for the updates on the Canarsie LCL line. From Canarsie-Rockaway Parkway to 8th Ave, this L will be totally overhauled.

Here is what I have so far...

I will only be working on Broadway-Junction to 8th Ave first, and then I'll do Canarsie to Bway-JCT.
Enjoy.

It looks disgusting, just like its real life counterpart lol. Great job, and by the way, will this use a brand new skeleton or will this be essentially an update for the (L)?

Okay. In the final product, will there be smooth curves?

Since I'm back in the community, I'm going to start lending my hands in some projects around here. Considering that I've lived near the L ever since I was brought into this world, this is one of the projects that I'd like to help in.

Whatever data you need, even if its recorded announcements, let me know.

Alright, since I got some time, I've decided to try and work on the project a little more. I've at least changed the platforms in each station and are working on custom beams. However, I'm missing a lot of stuff. If people contribute, the project will move forward. I don't live anywhere near the L so I won't be able to gather stuff myself. I've opened up a file request on the content contributor, and it will remain open until the project is finished. I've recently added brightness commands, and hope to finish this route asap.

Regards,
Jose.
