  9. Tried my best to keep up with them on the way to coney island yard. Here's the R211 making its first movements on NYCT property: Got ahead of them at Fort Hamilton Parkway on the Rushed ahead under the el towards bay 50 st and made it just in time While they were snaking their way though the yard, I rushed around the facility down Mcdonald Avenue to the small service road running along side coney island yard and got the 211 there

  17. (I thought someone else who is currently a TA employee was going to answer the question, that's why I'm late on posting an answer. My sincere apologies.) I would first encourage you to read this PDF brochure about Drug & Alcohol testing. To answer your question, from all the drug tests that I've taken in the private sector and for the MTA, not only is this optional, and sometimes recommended, but they also tell you to take this with you in the event the Medical Review Officer (MRO) calls you. As an example: I have a slight medical condition which I've had for over two decades and I take two medications on a regular basis. Since these are the only two medications I take, besides the over-the-counter Vitamin C, and once in a while Tylenol, Pepto Bismol, this, that, etc., I don't have to make a list of medications, since the list is short. I've had this slight medical condition for over 20 years and I've taken several drug (urine) tests and no MRO has called and/or said anything to me. Another example: A family member of mine has to take over 5 pills on a regular basis, for several conditions, including high blood pressure. He always keeps an updated list of medications with him, in the event something happens. Therefore, if the MRO decides to call my family member, he will have the list ready right there and then, wherever he is, to try to figure out why he tested positive for drugs. -Young

  22. I would have to inquire. I actually just saw it mentioned and asked and the responded. I think we will see and hear more about a lot of things OMNY related come the Fall. That seems to be when they are looking to ramp up things.

  23. If I'm not mistaken, the ruling was based on safety issues (either the union or the courts made this call). Any train that was longer than 300 feet had to have both a motorman (operator) and the conductor (person who opens/closes the doors). This is why the train WEEKENDS runs OPTO (train length is 300 feet, making it NOT longer than 300 feet), but WEEKDAYS has to have both because of crowding conditions (safety concerns).

  26. You're more than welcome for the constant information! And welcome back to New York from the West Coast! As far as the paperwork and/or jobs are concerned, just submit it with the way you stand right now, since there is a deadline. If you obtain a permanent address and/or find another job in the interim, you can always update your paperwork. You're not able to provide the signature on the PDF format? When I save the PDF file to my desktop, I use the "fill and sign" feature to sign the documents. I have used feature this at least twice during the pandemic for other "official" documents, and the people reviewing the documents said the following two words to me: "Good enough." I would encourage you to look at the three "print-screen" images below which should help you. If you still need help, send me a Private Message (PM) and I'll try to help you out to the best of my ability. Good luck!!

  27. (So it appears that I'm mistaken on the Third Ave El and the Dual Contracts, but I can go ahead, because for the most part what the state of the Third Av El is in 1970 is what really matters.) The original IRT was built in 1904. Around the time they finished the IRT, the IRT also essentially bought out the old els, which gave them a monopoly on rapid transit in Manhattan and the Bronx. The problem the city then faced was that the IRT was perfectly happy to make a profit on packed subways and not doing anything, so the BRT/BMT was brought in to make two companies compete with each other. A lot of lines were newly built as part of the Dual Contracts to the general specification of the BMT, part of today's B-Division. Hence the SAS "recapture" plan was to convert the WPR and Pelham to B Division, which wasn't that hard because they were newly built as part of the Dual Contracts. (A similar recapture was performed on the Astoria Line, which mostly involved shaving back the platforms.) The Third Av El predates the subway, and doesn't seem like it was extensively rebuilt as part of its Dual Contracts work to add a third track. So by 1970 the MTA was already considering buying a special fleet for both it and the Myrtle Av El, because they couldn't run with standard weight subway cars. --- Is reliability good? Yes. Is it worth more than a 1.5x premium to build for new lines when we have so much of the city still not covered by subway? No.
