    The R179s were out on the C line doing simulated stop testing. This is the first time these cars have been out on the road with operating signage.

    Enjoy, and please subscribe!

    Good job DJ.

    To me it's a combo of the R142 and R169, but there are enough differences to make it an interesting train.

    The side windows are longer and seems like the benches are slightly longer. The side flag placement is odd though.

This station is also home to R160 or R46 layups during the evening and weekend hours.

    I'm anticipating to hear the louder and bassier B-Division announcements as the speakers are fixtures like the original R142s rather than flush in the rest of the NTTs.
