The real Flatbush Avenue is locate in
the Borough of Brooklyn in NYC. While the Atlantic Branch of the
LIRR was in Brooklyn, I have included some LIRR facilities that
were located in Queens. My intent was to capture the ambiance of
Flatbush Avenue, with all the unique signage in front of the
stores. The signs on the storefronts on my layout came from
internet photos of real stores in Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan.
In addition, I recently added an elevated subway that runs
directly above my model of Flatbush Avenue. Even though an
elevated subway does not run above the real Flatbush Avenue, I
added it to help create the ambiance of the urban environment.
Also, since it is automated, it can run continuously during my
operating sessions adding realism to the session.
