  1. Joseph Korman's website has a section called Car Assignments which shows which line gets X amount of cars and what type. As of September 29, 2013, most of the R32s used on the (J)/(Z) lines were returned to the . http://www.thejoekorner.com/carassignments/
  2. I know that the R went to 179th Street in the 1980s, but for how long did it run? How long was the route (in miles)? Why was it cut back?
  3. What about the Bay Ridge-95th Street terminal? How many tph in rush hours? Midday? Off-hours?
  4. I'd imagine the Queens super express bypass shave off the excess density (train bunching, super-dense loads during rush hours, etc.) we see on the and lines today. It would have left more space for trains to run and less crowding along the Queens Boulevard line today.
  5. Are there any R160s on the C (8th Ave-Fulton St local) line? The JoeKorner website states that ~40 cars are being used on the C line (the 4-set trains). Here is the proof: http://www.thejoekorner.com/carassignments/ and click on June 30, 2013.
  6. An R40 would have been more cool if they used the slanted version. Is there any image of the R40's slant end on the ?
  7. I wish the R went via the 6th Avenue express tracks on weekends rather than Broadway via bridge.
  8. What did their cab interiors look like before the R46 and R44 were overhauled? I know what they look like today post-GOH, but what about pre-GOH? Is there any picture verifying this and has any T/O in this forum drove a pre-GOH R46 or R44?
  9. Correct me if I am wrong, but the may have been express along 4th Avenue to Pacific Street late nights during the reconstruction of Coney Island in 2002. The was the only train serving Coney Island at the time.
  10. What would the side display signs look like if an R train using the NTT equipment (R160, etc.) was diverted via the 6th Avenue express tracks and over the bridge? Note this is hypothetical, such as emergencies, detours or the like. Either via the 63rd St. or 53rd St. tunnels would be fine.
  11. Was the ever express on the 4th Avenue line? I think so, especially prior to the elimination of the Nassau Street loop.
  12. Hi, I am Rtrain4thAv and I am new to this forum. I often take the R to work and school and noticed that the R is often local at the places it goes, regardless of line (Queens Blvd., Broadway or 4th Avenue). What and why was the R (Fourth Avenue Local via Tunnel) always local?
