This map represents the New York City Subway system as it was in 2019. Included and with heavy detail are all 36 rail lines. I consider this an advanced simulation, due to the sheer size of the system and the large number of trains, but I hope that you enjoy this challenge.

Description

[This should have been uploaded last month but I failed to see it in a Discord PM until now – my apologies for the delay – Albert]

This map represents the New York City Subway system as it was in 2019. Included and with heavy detail are all 36 rail lines. I consider this an advanced simulation, due to the sheer size of the system and the large number of trains, but I hope that you enjoy this challenge (of course, IRL, no one person operates the entire system on their own!)

Map Features:
– All New York City Subway stations
– Bowling Green shuttle platform
– All New York City Subway yards, either in full, in partial or as off-map places

The Simulation:
The included timetable includes all services on 21 train services, plus the two Brooklyn express services on the F train, between 7:30 AM and 8:30 AM during weekday morning rush hour. Note that the 1, 4, 5, A, D, and E trains are not included because of both trying to add more caused Railway to crash and because of my busy schedule, which explains why certain tracks and lines never see service.

It is strongly recommended that you open the Actions Due and Service Information windows, and set Train Information to be on as well, to speed up the process of signaling trains and routing them onto appropriate tracks. I automated as many switches as possible, but still, I recommend that you set the simulation to run at half speed, and maybe even consider pausing the simulation, while you route these trains.

Wherever possible, local services operate on the outermost tracks of a multi-track (3 or more tracks) line, and express services operate on the innermost tracks of a multi-track line. Take the time to read the station stop list on the Train Information windows as it can be very easy to accidentially send trains down the wrong track and eliminating the posiblities of these trains to continue with their schedules.

Yard Services:
Services which run to or end at a yard are assigned prefixes with either the first two or three letters of the yard’s name or an abbreviation.

Train Services:
The New York City Subway is split between two line/route divisions. The A Division consists of train services designated by numbers, as well as the 42nd Street Shuttle, and was originally part of the Interborough Rapid Transit Company before 1940, when it was taken over by the City of New York. Services are made up of cars that are narrower, shorter, and lighter than those of the B Division. The B Division comprises train services designated by letters, as well as the Franklin Avenue and Rockaway Park Shuttles, and was originally part of the Brooklyn–Manhattan Transit Corporation and city-owned Independent Subway System before the 1940 city takeover of the BMT. Rolling stock is wider, longer, and heavier than those of the A Division.

A Division:
– 1 Broadway-7th Avenue Local: Not included in the simulation for reasons I describe above. The 1 train is fully local and makes all stops. Services run between 242nd Street in the Bronx and South Ferry in Manhattan.

– 2 7th Avenue Express: Assigned the prefix “2”. The 2 train operates express on the IRT Broadway–Seventh Avenue Line in Manhattan, and local elsewhere. Services run between 241st Street in the Bronx and Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn.

– 3 7th Avenue Express: Assigned the prefix “3”. The 3 train operates express on the IRT Broadway–Seventh Avenue Line in Manhattan, and local elsewhere. Services run between 148th Street in Manhattan and New Lots Avenue in Brooklyn.

– 4 Lexington Avenue Express: Not included in the simulation for reasons I describe above. The 4 train operates express on the IRT Lexington Avenue Line in Manhattan and IRT Eastern Parkway Line in Brooklyn and local on the IRT Woodlawn Line in the Bronx. Services run between Woodlawn in the Bronx and either Utica Avenue or New Lots Avenue in Brooklyn.

– 5 Lexington Avenue Express: Not included in the simulation for reasons I describe above. The 5 train operates express in Manhattan and on the IRT Eastern Parkway Line in Brooklyn, and express in the peak direction in the Bronx. Services run between either Dyre Avenue, 241st Street or Nereid Avenue in the Bronx and Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn.

– 6 Lexington Avenue Express/Pelham Bay Park Local & Express: Assigned the prefix “6”. The 6 train is fully local and makes all stops, but during rush hours and midday, an express variant operates express in the peak direction on the IRT Pelham Line between Third Avenue and Parkchester and local elsewhere. In the simulation, expresses (prefixed “6E”) start at Pelham Bay Park, locals (prefixed “6L”) start at Parkchester, and the southern terminus for all services is Brooklyn Bridge.

– 7 Flushing Local & Express: Assigned the prefix “7”. The 7 train is fully local and makes all stops, but during rush hours and midday, an express variant operates express in the peak direction between Queensboro Plaza and Main Street and local elsewhere. Services run between Main Street in Queens and 34th Street/11th Avenue in Manhattan.

– S 42nd Street Shuttle: Assigned the prefix “0”. The shortest line in the system, it connects Grand Central Terminal and Times Square in midtown Manhattan. In the simulation, this line is 100% automated and needs no attention.

B Division:
– A 8th Avenue Express: Not included in the simulation for reasons I describe above. The A train operates express between 168th Street and Euclid Avenue and local elsewhere. Services run between 207th Street in Manhattan and either Lefferts Boulevard, Mott Avenue or Beach 116th Street in Queens.

– B 6th Avenue Express: Assigned the prefix “B”. The B train operates express in Brooklyn and on the IND Sixth Avenue Line in Manhattan; local on Central Park West/Eighth Avenue Line in Manhattan and in the Bronx. Services run between Bedford Park Boulevard in the Bronx and Brighton Beach in Brooklyn.

– C 8th Avenue Local: Assigned the prefix “C”. The C train is fully local and makes all stops. Services run between 168th Street in Manhattan and Euclid Avenue in Brooklyn.

– D 6th Avenue Express: Assigned the prefix “D”. The D train operates express in Manhattan and on the BMT Fourth Avenue Line in Brooklyn and local elsewhere. However, it also does run express on the IND Concourse Line in the Bronx during rush hours in the peak direction. Services run between 205th Street in the Bronx and Stillwell Avenue in Brooklyn.

– E 8th Avenue Local/Queens Boulevard Express: Not included in the simulation for reasons I describe above. The E train operates express on the IND Queens Boulevard Line in Queens and local elsewhere. Services run between Parsons Boulevard/Archer Avenue in Queens and World Trade Center in Manhattan.

– F 6th Avenue Local/Queens Boulevard Express/Culver Local & Express: The two AM rush hour Queens-bound express services are included in the simulation, prefixed “FE”. The F train operates express in Queens between Forest Hills–71st Avenue and 21st Street–Queensbridge and local elsewhere. However, four total services in rush hours operate express between Jay Street and Church Avenue. Services run between 179th Street in Queens and either Kings Highway or Stillwell Avenue in Brooklyn.

– G Brooklyn-Queens Crosstown Local: Assigned the prefix “G”. The G train is fully local and makes all stops. Services run between Court Square in Queens and Church Avenue in Brooklyn.

– J/Z Nassau Street Local: Assigned the prefixes “J” and “Z”. The J train is normally fully local. However, during rush hours in the peak direction, the J and Z trains operate skip-stop services, and express service is provided between Myrtle Avenue and Marcy Avenue during rush hours and midday in the peak direction. Services run between Parsons Boulevard/Archer Avenue in Queens and Broad Street in Manhattan.

– L 14th Street/Canarsie Local: Assigned the prefix “L”. The L train is fully local and makes all stops. Services run between 8th Avenue in Manhattan and Rockaway Parkway in Brooklyn.

– M 6th Avenue/Queens Boulevard Local: Assigned the prefix “M”. The M train is fully local and makes all stops. Services run between 71st Avenue and Metropolitan Avenue, both in Queens.

– Q Broadway Express/2nd Avenue Local: Assigned the prefix “Q”. The Q train operates express on the BMT Broadway Line in Manhattan and local on the IND Second Avenue Line in Manhattan and in Brooklyn. Services run between 96th Street in Manhattan and Stillwell Avenue in Brooklyn.

– R Broadway/Queens Boulevard Local: Assigned the prefix “R”. The R train is fully local and makes all stops. Services run between 71st Avenue in Queens and 95th Street in Brooklyn.

– W Broadway Local: Assigned the prefix “W”. The W train is fully local and makes all stops. Services run between Ditmars Boulevard in Queens and Whitehall Street in Manhattan.

– S Franklin Avenue Shuttle: Assigned the prefix “S”. This line is largely single-track, but at Franklin Avenue-Botanical Garden, there is a double-track section where the two services pass each other. Services run between Franklin Avenue and Prospect Park in Brooklyn.

– S Rockway Park Shuttle: Assigned the prefix “H”. Services run between Broad Channel and Beach 116th Street in Queens.
