BVE is indeed the best of all train simulators for simulating metro. There are a lot of routes has been released for this game: London Underground, HK MTR, Tokyo Metro, NYC Subway and many other. LUL and Tokyo Metro are in very good quality, especially Tokyo routes.

Yeah, the video also show the two best line for these system in BVE.
Tokyo metro Ginza line and LU Northern line.

I find that Tokyo metro lines are easier to driver, there is too many signal failure in LU routes especially in Northern line (The most scenic one in BVE) one. I can be stopped several minutes due at a signal system (A bit like the reality).
Ginza line (The best one in BVE) has an ATC system.

In an other way to easy is boring.

The Northern Line will have ATO by 2010 if everything goes to plan.

I knew, but the only line with LU line in BVE with ATO is the victoria line. (that I know)
I hate drive it, too boring.

I don't find Central line for BVE and the Jubilee line is in development.

You have any links where I could download a Toyko route for BVE 4? I have a couple LU routes, the Glasgow Undergound and the Y-U-S line on the TTC for BVE 2, but I've ran them all far too many times, now.

This game is only in Japanese.
It is the whole Shinkansen San Yo line, between Shin Osaka and Hakata.

I bought a similar Japanese game many years ago and it was very real. Even if you miss the stop point by a few metres you lose points, so it was very hard to play to the end. If you brake too much a box will open on the side showing passengers falling inside the cabin.
