BVE Western Region Presents

The Central Line

The current release (version 0.1a) of our Central line for BVE is now available for download. Future releases will also be uploaded here.

There are known issues with this train and route. ATO and other features may not work on some systems

See this post for further details we are currently working on a fix for this which we hope to release shortly

Bringing you a demo with a

difference.

This demo version of the Central Line for BVE features:

  • Version 1 of the 1992 stock
  • A recreation of the ATP signalling system which is in use on the real Central Line
  • Three ‘driving modes’ within the train including: Restricted Manual, Coded Manual and ATO
  • A beta version of our in-cab CCTV

Set in the evocative period of 2002 the route currently covers the line from Ealing Broadway to Liverpool St through the heart of Central London. Experience the atmosphere of one of our favourite periods in London Underground history shortly after the completion of the 1990s modernisation program. Take the controls of the 1992 stock, the workhorse of the Central line since it’s introduction in the early ’90s.
This current version is a demo. A comprehensive upgrade of the line is currently in progress. Keep an eye on this website for further information!

Please follow the instructions carefully when installing this.

ATP / ATO

Signalling System

Ever wanted to sit back and let the train do the work? You're in luck! Faithfully recreated signalling and a 1992 Stock allow you to do just that. As this route was re-signalled to allow ATO in the 1990s we have included it in our version

CCTV

In Cab

Fully functional in cab CCTV allows you to check if our virtual passengers are clear before you pull away. However it doesn't help you to shout at them if they aren't.

Driving Modes

3 Different modes

Enjoy Restricted Manual, Coded Manual and ATO modes, all of which behave just like the real thing. We are aware that there are a few issues around the plugin and ATO may not fire up for everyone

Announcements

Totally authentic

Listen to the dulcet tones of Janet Mayo as she announces your destination and current station. Fully authentic to the time period, these announcements are a beta. There's better yet to come.

Features.

Set in 2002

The last bastion of the 1990s renovation

To the driver in 2002 the ATO was now fully enabled and the fun could begin! Set before the modernisation of the late 2000s when Janet Mayo lost her voice and Tottenham Court Road lost it's tiles. Enjoy a bit of early Noughties nostalgia.
