BVE

Boso View Express

New York City Transit IND 8th Avenue-Queens Blvd E line

Screenshots

This really isn't a station, but it's a station wall B3D file that will be used at the Jamaica Van Wyck station.
The first station screen shot is of the 63rd Drive station. The signs on the columns between the local and express tracks still exist. I tried to replicate the many decades of aging these signs have endured, and the font on the signs is a bit different, too.
Note: There will be a V train on track 1 as you pass.
This is the 5th Avenue station. The black boxes on the left wall is the Gallery. Usually, it displays exhibits from nearby museums (MoMA, Museum of TV & Radio, etc.)
This is a picture of the station. As for the BVE version, the "New Exhibit Coming Soon" signs will be up. The 5 Av/53 St and no clearance signs are on the right side wall.
Information signs indicate when lines open, which lines cross the E line, and station names as you pass.
I got this idea from those Northern Line BVE routes (both Kennington to High Barnet and Edgware to Morden via Bank).
An A train awaits your arrival at 42nd Street. (In reality, this train would stop alongside your train at express stops between here and West 4th Street, but in the simulation, it'll just stay put here.)

Nitpicking

Although I tried to replicate the tiles in the IND stations as close as I could, I ran into one limitation: there is no way to "step" the tiles (as in the real world). Therefore, in the simulation, all the color bands are perfectly straight.

No stairs in the stations? What's up with that? This is just a rough-in. Actual depictions of stairs will not be attempted in this version.
