    Similiar to Create your own bus route! in our MTA Bus Operations forum, create your own subway route. Assign your subway route a route bullet, describe the route, station locations and transfers, assign cars (past, present or future subway cars), and assign a yard. Most of all have fun!

    This is my own Create Your Own Subway Route:

    70(8) Third Avenue
    • New I.R.T. (A Division) Route
    • Uses R62s
    • Serves Third Avenue, Webster Avenue and East Gun Hill Road

    Stations
    Manhattan
    • East Harlem-Park-Lexington Avenues Transfer (4)(5)(6)<6> (Q)(T) MNRR

    The Bronx
    • East 138th Street Transfer (6)<6>
    • The Hub-East 149th Street Transfer (2)(5)
    • East 156th Street
    • East 161st Street
    • East 168th Street
    • Claremont Parkway

    • East Tremont Avenue
    • East 180th Street

    • 204th Street
    • Williamsbridge-210th Street
    • White Plains Road Transfer (2)(5)

    Purple (K). This route will travel on the fictional Kalila Avenue line via Purple Peace Land. The problem is, the MTA is broke and they have no plans to build this line. :eek:

    (T)-125th Street to Hanover Square. We can all keep dreaming or pretend to create that, because budget problems would never allow it to be fully completed.

    (T)- 4 tracks, 125th Street to Hanover Square. We can all keep dreaming or pretend to create that, because budget problems would never allow it to be fully completed.

    BMT El
    (S) via McDonald Av & Church Av
    5 car R160 set

    This route will utilize the Culver El from Av X until Ditmas Av. It will then branch off the el, continue north until it hits Church Av and will then make its way down Church Av, terminating at Kings Hwy (for those of you who don't know, Kings Hwy does intersect with Church Av). Trains will be based out of the CI yard via the switch at Av X.

    Stops in order from south terminal:
    Av X (F) B4 B1
    Av U (F) B3
    Kings Hwy (F) B82
    18th Av (F) B8
    Ditmas (F) Av
    Church Av - McDonald Av (F)(G) B67 B35
    Coney Island Av B68 B35
    E. 18th St (B)(Q) B35
    Flatbush Av B41 B35
    Nostrand Av (2) (5) B44 B35
    Utica Av B46 B35
    Kings Hwy B7 B35

    Here's a map showing a portion of the line from McDonald - Church Av to Kings Hwy (I don't have Photoshop so bear with me) *Note: I forgot to put the station symbol for Utica Av.

    One of the other things I would do is extend the (L) from it's current Canarsie base down to 20th Avenue on the Sea Beach Line to create a crosstown Brooklyn Line to take the load off the buses crossing Brooklyn.

    You should eliminate either East 18th Street or Flatbush Avenue because Flatbush Avenue is too close to East 18th Street.

    I would prefer eliminate Flatbush Avenue so East 18 Street has transfers with the (:)(Q) trains.

    Also, there is a transfer on the (2)(5) at Nostrand Avenue, not Flatbush Avenue, but I don't blame you.

    Won't a crosstown Brooklyn Line with the current (L) work better then a (S).

    Thanks for the correction. I made a mistake.

    As for Flatbush and E. 18th, their both valubale transfer points even thou both stations would be pretty close to one another. I just can't imagine having a shuttle run down Church Av and pass such a major avenue.
