    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. has 2 tracks between Queensboro Plz & 34th St-Hudson Yards, then three tracks between east of the Sunnyside Yard & Main St. 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. Then R188 [with converted R142A (7211-7590) & 38 C cars: 7899-7936; then the new version (7811-98)]. Local at all times, express on rush-hours. 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 before & after Mets games [limited service only], stopping at Mets-Willets Point, 61st St-Woodside, Queensboro Plaza, Court Sq, Grand Central-42nd St, Fifth Ave-Bryant Park, and Times Square-42nd St. 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.

    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)
