    Today, I am suggesting the 6 Avenue Line, or the B/D/F/M Trains for TSW 2.

    Most of the information can be found in this video.


    The 6 Avenue Line is a Trunk Line of the NYC Subway. The B, D, F, and M Trains run along it.

    The B Train, also known as the 6 Avenue Express, runs between 145 St in Manhattan and Brighton Beach in Brooklyn. During Rush Hours, it is extended into The Bronx to Bedford Park Blvd, and During Late Nights (12 AM - 5 AM), B Trains do not run. It runs Express in Manhattan Between 34 St - Herald Sq to W 4 St, and in Brooklyn between Prospect Park and Brighton Beach.

    The D Train, also known as the 6 Avenue Express, runs between Norwood - 205 St in The Bronx and Coney Island - Stillwell Avenue in Brooklyn. It runs Peak Direction Express Services between 145 St and Bedford Park Blvd During Rush Hours, to compensate for B Trains running on the Bronx portion. The D Train runs Express in Manhattan between 34 St - Herald Sq and W 4 St, and in Brooklyn between Atlantic Av - Barclays Center and 36 St.

    The F Train, also known as the 6 Avenue Local, runs between Jamaica - 179 St in Queens, and Coney Island - Stillwell Avenue in Brooklyn. It runs Express in Queens between Forest Hills - 71 Avenue and 74 St - Roosevelt Avenue/21 St - Queensbridge. It also runs Peak Direction Express Services in Brooklyn.

    And The M Train, also known as the 6 Avenue Local, runs between Forest Hills - 71 Avenue in Queens and Middle Village - Metropolitan Avenue… also in Queens. It has a different service pattern for different times of the day (More information about the service pattern can be found in the video linked above).

    R46 - AI Services (A, C, G, N, Q)

    R68 - (B, D, G)

    R68A (A, B, N, Q)
    [​IMG]

    R160A-1 (J, M, Z)
    [​IMG]

    R160A-2/R160B (E, F, N, R)
    [​IMG]
    R179 - AI Services (A, C, J, Z)

    The route could come with only the R68, R160A-1 and R160B, and include the other trains as layers from other possible NYC Subway Route DLC’s, or as Loco DLC’s.


    This route would contain Elevated, Underground, and At-Grade/Open-Cut Sections. It would also have a lot of services, and rolling stock. I think TSW needs more Subway Routes, and this would be a very nice one to see in the game. I feel like this could work well with the Rush Hour Theme, coming to TSW this summer. What do you think about this suggestion?

    This would be cool if it was in the game. It could work well with the rush hour theme since these lines do get very busy during rush hour. I would like to see more metro/subway routes in tsw2 someday. TSW2 and dtg seems to focus more on communter rail which is fine but I think it would be cool to get more subway routes in the game. Subways are what makes cities move. The NYC subway is a very popular suggestion and popular with the community so I hope we see this in the future.

    I would like to see more subway routes after dtg makes improvements to the BKL because if dtg can't get a full timetable for the Bakerloo Line, then how would they make a full timetable for the B, D , F and M trains.

    Excellent idea and I've been to the 23rd street station F&M trains that station is actually set up as like this 6th ave locals sides the central tunnel is path train below those are the express track tunnels and on top of the express tunnel it's actually a underpass for the PATH train.
    Build dates
    1986-1988 Westinghouse Alstom R68
    1988-1990 Kawasaki Yonkers R68A
    2006-2010 Alstom Kawasaki R160A-2 & R160B
    2006-2009 Kawasaki R160B Siemens although you are more likely to encounter them on Coney Island routes N,Q & W trains some are Jamaica Yard R & F trains
    R160A-1 2006-2010 Alstom Hornell, NY M train.
    The difference between the A1 and A2 R160s are A-1 is 8 car trains A-2 10 car trains. 14th Street is going to be different because you have the L train underneath the F & M trains and on top of the Express B & D trains that station can serve as a transfer point to another suggestion of yours the west Side IRT which goes to the Bronx via 96th Street Broadway.
    Late Nights only D & F trains operate M train Shuttle between Myrtle Avenue Broadway in Middle Village Metropolitan Avenue. For B train use D & Q trains by transforming at Atlantic Terminal Brooklyn Barclays Center

    Who knows, maybe they can find a way. BML is supposed to have the biggest timetable yet, and if they got that working, I’m sure they could get a 6 Ave Line Timetable working.
