Animated Lcd/led Train Destination Signs

Recommended Posts

This is the Animated LCD/LED Train Destination Signs thread.

As of today, I can actually make R44/46 LCD signs and R143/160 LED signs, thanks to a number of select images. R142ALCD signs are not available yet, sorry.
 

R44/R46 LCD Signs

Changes:

  • The addition of a Circle/Diamond Bullet.
  • The character limit is expanded from 15 to 20.
  • Font colors representing Manhattan trunk lines. The inside bullet is given a color as well.
  • The "Via" and "To" will be seen as well as Bronx/Manhtn/Qns/Bklyn if possible.

R143/R160 LED Signs

Changes:

  • No room for a circle/diamond bullet, so a small flipdot reading [LCL] [LTD] [EXP] [sHU] [s/S] was added.
  • The character limit was expanded from 112 characters to 136 characters.
  • Font colors representing Manhattan trunk lines are definitely applied for LED signage.

Feel free to request a handmade LCD/LED signs and I will make it ASAP.

R44/R46 LCD
*Color: Original Yellow or Dark Gray?
*Bullet: Circle or diamond? [Yes] / Bullet elimination? [No]
*Route number/letter (2 letters and numbers are possible)
*Destination and where it'll run (6th Ave, Eastern Parkway, etc)? It has to make sense.

R143/R160 LED
*Color: Original Gray or Bright Yellow?
*Flipdot: [LCL] [LTD] [EXP] [sHU] [s/S]? [Yes] / Flipdot elimination? [No]
*Route number/letter (2 letters and numbers are not possible yet)
*Destination and where it'll run. It has to make sense.

Enjoy!

COOL! rainbow.gifroll2.gif

 

One idea for the LED signs would be to make the actual destination text white. That would be more visible. The route letter bearing the route color would be enough.

As it is, they only use amber now because it's supposedly more visible, and I would use white as to not contradict the route color, and that should be visible enough even if it's not as good as amber. But colors like brown or blue would be harder to see.

This is something I would really want them to adopt. It's the front sign I'm trying to convince them on (see avatar) now.

 

Are you going to do buses as well. (They said the sign programs don;t have enough capacity to add colors).

Thanks for the feedback. :tup: Yes, I have the amber-colored fonts for the R143/160 LED. I gave the fonts different colors because it was an original idea and the real thing doesn't have it. But yes, the blue color resembling the 8th Avenue line was way too dark, so I gave it a somewhat brighter color and it worked :tup:. Maybe I should do the same for the Nassau Street line too...

 

I never tried white though, so maybe I can test it out and see how the fonts turn out. As for buses, RTS CNG Command does Flipdots and LED bus signages. I have no tools and pictures to make them sadly. However, I can use the handmade LCD/LED signs to make them, only if I can make the route destination number fit on the left side since it requires 2-5 characters. That's the only issue for now.

(Mx) NASSAU ST EXP

(Mx) BROADWAY JCT

(Mx) WEST END LOCAL

(Mx) JAMAICA EXP

(Mx) VIA MYRTLE AV

So change the F sign to match the A/G LED signage?

 

And I'm confused with the (Mx).. So Nassau/Jamaica EXP with West End Local via Myrtle Ave, heading to Broadway Junction?

Nice work. My request:

 

(M) To 57 St-6 Av

(M) via Myrtle Av

(M) Jamaica Lcl

(M) 6 Av Local

If you can, I would like the route letter to be colored in its mainline colors and the rest of it in the standard amber color with "LCL" on the side. Thanks in advance.

Yep
You got it.

 

I'll take the R160-style signage. I guess it'd have LCL on the side.
Okay then.
