Well this would be a nice start.



Then when you would actually put effort into the design it you could end up with a finished product like this.

You guys do realize that the R179 is effectively an add-on order to the previous orders, right?

The few things that ARE new are glitching up the works as they try to re-tool from the last order.

I wonder who was responsible for installing defective signals on NYC's newest subway stretch

Recently I have been getting addicted to NYC subway videos, I have never seen a full scale video detailing how the subway operates or a ride along until now.

I really like this channel called Luftschlange. It posts nice videos of the system.

Here is its latest video:

In 1925, the Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit Corporation (BMT) introduced a three-car articulated unit called the D-Type Triplex. The design meant passengers could walk from one car to another in the unit through an enclosed passageway. They carried more passengers and had fewer moving parts, making them efficient and easier to maintain.

LSE Cities has put together this transport map of NYC as part of it's Urban Age project. Ferries and cable cars still to be added, but it'd be great if anyone has any suggestions for improvements/corrections?
