  1. Around 40 mph or so. EDIT: Except for the drawbridges.
  2. No express trains in the system can physically reach anywhere above 50. And yes, that is a fact. Not even the ‘s Rockaway Flats. It’s only the 60th Street Tube.

    I can't believe even to this day, you are literally the only member I know on this site who still thinks subway car performance contribute to major delays...aging signals/tracks, passenger crowding, track/signal workers, timers, and the subway's complexity (especially on the B Division) play a huge role of subway delays...

    R179 Discussion Thread

    You literally just agreed with me a few posts before that the R32s are better off staying on the for obvious reasons and now all of an sudden you claim that they are slower than the R46s? That doesn't sound right. And the R46s are not any better either.

  6. The going local sucks. Like T to Dyre Avenue said, it makes you wonder what's the purpose of skip-stop between Broadway Junction and Sutphin Blvd in the first place since they'll only be skipping at most 4-5 stops instead of the current 9-10 stops. By the way, T to Dyre Avenue, it'll only be an extra 2 minute wait for the skip-stop stations. But I do agree that 12 minute headways, in terms of mathematics, equals one less train an hour. There also needs to be 13 skip-stop trains leaving Broad Street between 4:50 and 5:50 in the afternoon instead of the current 11.

    Because they always point out the bleeding obvious: "Old cars are unreliable", "new cars are better performers", "the busiest lines in the system tend to be unreliable in terms of time performance due to overcrowding and people holding doors", and so on and so fourth.

    I'm so glad that the guys at the Straphangers Campaign stop making annual reports rating the respective best and worst lines.

    Ok... Where in my post did I say anything about the though?

    Fine, but I rather have 9-10 sets of R32s on the in addition to all the five-car R179s, because a bunch of riders will also increase ridership during the 14th Street Tunnel Shudtown and 12 sets of ten-car R179 trains just aren't gonna cut it.

    R32 Fleet Swap Discussion Thread

    I think whoever is in charge of the line refused to have as many R32 sets on it. Instead, he or she prefer having them split between the and .

    R32 Fleet Swap Discussion Thread

    I think the line crews and dispatchers hate the R32s for their older age, their half-width cabs, and those who tend to hog the RFW which leaves the T/Os unable to open their cabs wide open for their whole pick. It's why they tend not to have as many R32s on the line and is why to this very day, they still have around 5 sets of R32s on the . The R32s' blind faces also don't feature seats for C/Rs to sit down either. It's also why the and swap occurred in the summers of 2013 and 2014 before officially becoming permanent from the summer of 2015 onwards. I do not think the line crews and dispatchers care much about the R46s' lesser amount of doors causing longer boarding and dwelling times, because even if the was half 60 footers, mostly 60 footers, or all 60 footers, it probably won't reduce much of the delays and bunching since ridership keeps on increasing as time passes, the still has not decided to remove the numerous timers along the line, and keep the South Channel Drawbridge closed for the entire rush hour frame. I know I'm talking too much here and overthinking here. I'm just saying that when it comes to the longest line in the system like the , it's fairly understandable why the line can't be perfect in terms of time performance and even speed too. Blame the timers and the aging signalling system (and to a lesser extent the passengers) for that. So whether the has 60 footers, newer cars, overall better equipment or whatever, the will always still fairly have problems along its route. I'm telling you...the answer as to why a handful of R32s are still on the is fairly obvious. What could we do? Of course though, as you see my posts in the R179 Thread, I have no problem with trying to get as many 60 footers on the as fast as possible.
  13. The timers are justifiable, whether you agree with me or not. The only thing is that they shouldn't start so early at midway out of Canal Street, but rather at the north end of Franklin Street. The curve between that station and the crossovers before Chambers Street southbound is why southbound West Side express trains should be careful.

    I don’t see an issue with criticizing someone who’s been nothing but annoying ever since he appeared on the forums and worshiping a successful person of a particular position in the transit industry like high heaven...meanwhile...the critised person also constantly spreads baseless information and causing confusion among everyone as they scratch their heads and question themselves as to whether they should believe him or not. That’s where the real problem lies and confusion is not always a good feeling. I can guarantee you that. Yeah, I get that there’s nothing wrong with looking up to anyone in general and viewing them more of a role model because of something they have in common with or something they can relate to. But this was way too much and it’s something that’s been going on for a while now and something finally had to be said. Simply “ignoring it” is not necessarily the solution to anything especially if the person has done this repeatedly as people try to hold in their patience/ignore. And ironically, Coney Island Av has also gone on and on endlessly about stuff he doesn’t agree with before. So I’m not surprised that he’s getting a taste of his own medicine. That said, I’ll leave this thread be.

    I know right. The kid literally does this all the time on the forums in general. I just don't get him. It's like he's not his own individual.
