    Saw these weird boxes and antennae appearing on the Q train recently. Anyone know what they are? I find the military style stencil font label very strange. Are they Cell & Wifi? Or Just wifi.skitch.jpg

    Can't see that pic. Is it in the stations, or on the actual cars themselves?

    How about here? Can't figure out how to upload attachments. Sorry!


    It's inside the cars, sandwiched between the windows at the end of the cars.

    • LocationNear a station in Central Queens where three (E) trains terminate late in the AM Rush Hour on weekdays (at 8:27, 9:02, 9:13 from WTC, arriving at my home station at 9:09, 9:44 and 9:56 respectively) and was the terminal for E and EE trains from its opening on December 31, 1936 to April 24, 1937. This station is also home to R160 or R46 layups during the evening and weekend hours.

    Forgive me if I'm wrong but I believe they are testing WiFi in some cars in conjunction with the new LED displays. Unclear when they will start a mass retrofit.

    This is a signature. You can make one too.

    Those LED displays are on R160s primarily from the Broadway Line. Those being the (N) (Q) ® and (W).

    Yes, on the R160Bs. Originate from Coney Island Yard.
