  6. According to the TTMG roster, 8893-8897 and 9013-9017 are at Jamaica
  7. Not sure when they were installed but World Trade Center on the has CBTC beacons in the trackbed on both tracks.
  8. Yeah London's been doing that since the summer on the Hammersmith & City and Circle lines and now also the Metropolitan line IIRC... Of course their ultimate plan is to have CBTC cover the entire subsurface network, but phased in over the next few years. EDIT: First section was in March with a second in August: For the record, its a Thales project with an expected completion of 2023.
  9. I was originally going to do weekly list updates every Monday but they threw me for a loop today and activated Penn Station today. Without further ado, here's the list: OMNY installation list: Active sections with OMNY: Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center to Grand Central-42 Street 34 Street-Penn Station 34 St-Penn Station Stations with the protruding base installed: 96 Street, 103 Street, 110 Street 138 Street-Grand Concourse 149 Street-Grand Concourse 161 Street-Yankee Stadium 170 Street, 176 Street, Burnside Av, 183 Street, Fordham Road, Kingsbridge Road, Bedford Park Blvd, Moshulu Parkway, Woodlawn WTC Cortlandt, Franklin St, Canal St, Houston St, Christopher St-Sheridan Sq, 18 Street, 23 Street, 28 Street, 66 St-Lincoln Center 42 Street-Port Authority Bus Terminal Times Sq-42 St 47-50 Streets Rockefeller Center 86 Street St George Ferry, Tompkinsville SIR Stations with OMNY readers installed on the bases: Sutphin Blvd-Archer Avenue-JFK Whitehall St 50 Street Chambers St 14 Street (7 Av) 59 Street-Columbus Circle 51 Street 59 Street 68 Street-Hunter College, 77 Street, 116 Street 86 Street, 125 Street
  10. People aren't paying attention to what they read lol
  11. Hidden in an article about CRRC getting banned from receiving federal funds: I guess there's your way way too early short list for the R262s 🤣
  12. Since its a new install, they might be testing it first on that bus and then roll it out fleet wide. IIRC that's how the transfers were implemented around this time last year and 7591 was the test bus.
  13. 418-Version 2 The stop triggers are definitely modified on this bus and closer to the actual intersections.
  14. I would hope they shut down the express tracks for X number of weekends needed with the all on the local, phase those in and then shut down the local tracks for X number of weekends with the on the express (using the recently activated express tracks) and then phase in the local tracks when ready. I would also like to see the MTA expand the L Project Weekly newsletter concept to CBTC installs and other planned GO's. Instead of seemingly random closures and reroutes, explain that "X is happening so we can do Y and when we're finished, you'll end up with Z".
