    IRT's only line between Manhattan & Queens, and more than ten-cars [11]; started February 22nd, 1885 [2/22/1885] with the founding of the East River Tunnel Railroad. The railroad would construct the Steinway Tunnel under the East River, connecting the Long Island Rail Road in Queens with the New York Central Railroad in Manhattan. However, the East River Tunnel Railroad Company went defunct. On July 22nd, 1887, Walter S. Gurnee & Malcolm W. Niven founded the New York & Long Island Railroad Company (N.Y. & L.I.R.R.). They soon began planning for the tunnel. It has 2 tracks between Queensboro Plz & 34th St-Hudson Yards, then three tracks between east of the Sunnyside Yard. A Queens Blvd Viaduct between 33rd-Rawson & 46th-Bliss opened in 1920. With 22 stations on the line, four of them inside Manhattan including the 34th St-Hudson Yards station (Opens in 2015), and three in queens: Vernon-Jackson, Hunters Point, and Main St. Originally terminated @ Times Sq-42nd St [1927-2015]. Subway fleet carried R62A with LED lighting, red diamond is express & green circle is local. Now, the R188 [with converted R142A (7211-7590 formerly carried the 6 line) & 38 C cars: 7899-7936; then the new version (7811-98)]. Local at all times, express on rush-hours (6:21-9:53am from Queens & 2:46-9:41pm from Manhattan), some rush hour local trains will begin/terminate at Mets-Willets Point or 111th St-Roosevelt Ave [From/to the Corona Yard]. A Super-Express service runs before & after Mets games [limited service only] between Mets-Willets Point in Queens & 34th-Hudson in Manhattan's Far West Side; stopping @ 61st St-Woodside, Queensboro Plaza, Court Sq, and local west of Grand Central. The 7 is nicknamed the International Express in part because it travels through several different ethnic neighborhoods populated by immigrants, especially along Roosevelt Avenue, and in part because it was the principal subway route to the 1964-65 New York World's Fair. This name is not official, nor is the title used in day-to-day operations. Which includes a new arrival clocks & prediction announcements, tunnel lighting (College Point Blvd portal & west of Hunters Point) & exit locations (for example: west of Hunters Point, 33rd-Rawson, 46th-Bliss, 52nd, 74th & Main St. That's for additional exits/entrances). Travel time: under 40 minutes on the local & rush-hour express route.


    The International Express

    On June 26th, 1999, then-First Lady Hillary Clinton & U.S. Transportation Secretary Rodney E. Slater designated the 7 route as a National Millennium Trail, along with 15 other routes including the Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail, and the Underground Railroad. The route was designated under the name International Express.

    I love this idea hopefully it comes to life in TSW Game one day it be something new and fresh. It be a totally different material from the content we currently have now. NYC Subway trains are the ones to bring that experience to the game.

    True. If the DTG can add "Quick Drive Segment" session [like the TS on your computer], you can make your schedule [day or night] yu want.

    I see what you did with the Purple for the 7 Train.

    As much as I would LOVE to see the R62A’s on the 7, they don’t run on the 7 anymore. Only R188’s run on the 7 currently, they are controlled by ATO (Automatic Train Operation) and CBTC (Communications Based Train Control).

    Would love to see this in the game. (Without the ATO)

    Here's a brand new arrival announcement on that line. They should do all 7 line stations in the first place!

    Excellent choice and you might need to put in these as the Rolling stock 1999-2003 R142A 7211-7590 they're coupled to 7899-7936 R188 C cars. Lastly factory built R188s 2012-2015 7811-7898 link is from https://www.nycsubway.org/wiki/New_Technology_Trains_-_A_Division#Roster. If Corona Yard is added there might be a Scenario for you to couple a 5 car set of factory R188s with a R142A 7211-7590 with R188 C cars 77899-7936 then start a mets-willets point 34th Street Hudson yards. Also if you have BMT Broadway and IND 8th and 6th aves Queens Blvd DLC Add some of the transfer stations to those lines they're the following Queensboro Plaza N,& W trains 74th Street Broadway E,F,M & R trains 5th Avenue Bryant Park B D,F & M trains & Times Square 42nd Street A,C,E N,Q,R & W trains can offer you the option would you like to take over this service to Inwood 207th Street Washington Heights 168th Street. Also 74th Street Broadway can give you the option of do you want to take over this train to Forest Hills 71st Avenue Jamaica 179th Street and Jamaica Parsons Boulevard Archer. My first experience of those features was actually taking over a Class 166/ Local Reading to Paddington Station and LIRR Train 750 New York Penn Station to Hempstead.

    Yup. Hopefully, DTG rush-hour event will occurred on that route. Which includes a quick drive segment, as well as more London underground, LIRR, Metro-north or other routes.

    I would like dtg to do the ATO for this game. We have simulators that are less advanced and that are already in their years that have routes with ATO. (open bve has ATO), train simulator the maglev route has ATO and you have the possibility to connect or disconnect it ...... so why not do this in train sim world 2 which is the most advanced train simulator? ???

    22 stops 3 stops shorter than the base Bakerloo Line at 25 stops. Gameplay ends up like Haputstrecke München Augsburg S-Bahn LZB. The reason for this is that the CBTC Seltrack works like Siemens LZB München S-Bahn S3 Marmendorf-Hackerbrücke.

    When COVID-19 is over the Development team including Adam JD Jaime Sam and Matt must go to the Flushing Line for a proper idea of 7 train countdown clocks otherwise they're going to copy the Bakerloo Line countdown clocks for the Subway. Also, they can go to 61st st Woodside LIRR Platforms for the correct countdown clock with color-coded lines, not the old-style clock in-game for LIRR.

    Unfortunately, some people don't have computers/laptops, and some can't even run WOS, like Mac's.

    Why can't Macs run WOS? It would probably run under Windows on Mac. Plenty of other games do.
