SUBWAY reloaded:

The year 2005 saw our first released Subway add-on for MSTS, „Berlin Subway“. Now we are stepping it up. Our idea is simple and straight forward, to develop a very special Subway Simulator, which with the help of todays technical equipment and graphics is able to convert the real underground feeling to your home PC.

And.here we are!. We have created a stand-alone Subway Simulator with modern graphics, real physics and many more features. Under the new label „World of Subways“ and in co-operation with the publisher AEROSOFT, we will in future develop some of the most interesting and demanding Subway routes of the world for your PC

We are kicking off with one of the oldest Subway systems. The connection between New Jersey and New York City: the PATH-Route.


 

HISTORY

Due to its geographical location New York had no direct connection from and to the west until 1910. The Hudson River was the obstacle. All great train companies built their stations on the banks of the Hudson River in New Jersey. The passenger service between Jersey City and New York was operated only with ferries across the river.

To connect both cities, construction of a tunnel from the Jersey side began as early as 1874. The tunnel was meant to be for steam driven trains.

The ambitious project to tunnel the Hudson River found a sudden end on the 21. July 1888 when water burst through the tunnel.

Rising passenger numbers though encouraged a new approach and in the same year construction started again. But defaults on payments by foreign investors stopped the project again.

In 1901 a third approach began. Now the route was planned to be electrified and was extended from the original "Uptown Tunnel" (todays connection from New Jersey - 33rd Street), to 3 additional routes. A southern tunnel was planned (Exchange Place), a connection below all stations of Jersey city and Hoboken (Hoboken - Exchange Place) as well as an above ground extension to Newark. Building began in 1903 and was at last finished. Service began on the18. July 1908 through the northern tunnel. In 1909 a second tunnel pairing as well as the connection between Hoboken and Exchange Place was inaugurated. 1911 saw the beginning of service on all extensions.

At this time the route was hailed as a masterpiece of engineering and the first mass public transport which went underneath a river.

On 11th. September 2001 the World Trade Center was destroyed. Exchange Place had to be closed until June 2003 even though it was only affected by water leaks at the eastern end of the station. During its closure the complete station was rebuilt and modernized.

With the opening of the temporary "World Trade Center Station" in November 2003 the "Downtown Tunnel" was back in service again.
 

HIGHLIGHTS ROUTE

The construction of the tunnel tube is very interesting. They have been panelled with cast iron segments which have a diameter of approx. 5m. As they are completely round they took on the nick name "Hudson Tubes".

On the above ground route between Journal Square and Newark you can find some more interesting constructions. The first of which is a lift bridge across the "Hackensack". The second is another lift bridge across the "Passaic River". Its construction seems rather more interesting as the route between Journal Square and Harrison meets the tracks of the "Northeast Corridor" and has been somewhat built around them. There´s a high rise shortly before Newark, the crossing of the tracks of the corridor which divides itself onto the various platforms of Newark. Both tracks of the path Route are running parallel for a while, then one track runs down on the bridge across the Passaic to end up on the same elevation as the tracks of the Northeast Corridor on the second level of the Newark Penn Station. The other track stays on the elevation of the third level with its own platform.

A temporary feature is the "World Trade Center" station. The station has almost been completely destroyed on nine eleven. The station today is only temporary situated on the side of the construction plant. This station, though being 25 m below ground level has daylight from three sides with the exception of the terminal loop which has not been destroyed and is still in service.

More interesting locations in the Path Route are the dead-end stations "33rd Street" and "Hoboken".
