    It's a 24 station, 35-45 minute, gray-color route between Rockaway Pkwy in Brooklyn & Eighth Ave-14th St in Manhattan's West Side. You have the Wilson Ave station in Brooklyn is THE only station of the entire system where eastbound on the upper level [low elevated] & westbound on the lower level [underground], five elevated stations between Broadway Jct to New Lots Ave, then East 105th St & Rockaway Pkwy are at-graded. Underground stations between Bushwick Ave-Aberdeen St in Brooklyn & Eighth Ave in West Side of Manhattan. Time schedules: weekdays & weekends [days & nights] every 4-6 minutes then every 20 minutes on late night. Some eastbound trains on morning's rush-hour will terminated at Myrtle-Wyckoff Aves (21 minutes), some westbound trains will begin at East 105th (38 minutes). Rolling stock fleets are R143 & R160A-1. And a couple of subway yards in Brooklyn: East New York & Canarsie. L train is the ONLY line of the entire system doesn't have an express track. With additional exit locations @ Livonia on the eastbound platform, between Halsey (Wyckoff) & Morgan, Lorimer (metropolitan), bedford, First Ave, and west of Third Ave.

    YES! This proposal should get more attention - this would be a fantastic route for TSW.

    In addition to the reasons you mentioned, here's why this fits the TSW criteria:
    - Is very well-known brand (strong association with NYC / BK)
    - It's contained (like the 7),
    - Has diversity of scenery / topography (subway, el, at-grade),
    - Length is reasonable to model / develop (<20 miles),
    - Multiple trainsets / operating modes could be added - CBTC with the R-143s, manual operation with legacy R40/42

    Technically they couldn’t operate on the Carnarsie Line because the R42 and 68 don’t have CBTC and the R179 is too long for the BMT Eastern Division Routes. It would have to be strictly the R143 and R160As

    My answer to that,i don't mind any mta route or train as i stated in my thread.Im in support of all Northamerican locomotive and i even support our brothers in uk.We need to all work together,vote,comment to better good/bad ideas.I also will like to clarify,i vote yes& support other ideas outside uk/us,but i feel like Europe as a whole,has a much larger community then u.s,therefore We need to be more involved to prevent over shadow.

    True - although they could include a pre-CBTC mid-90s mode (or even better, set the route in the late 80s, early 90s) running R40/42s. IMO, a pre-gentrification look into the Canarsie line would be sick.

    This could be quite interesting, I’d love to see the slants in game.

    The L Line is also one of the major Routes in NYC
