  1. Sadly for off the street people I do not think there will be any open competitive exams anymore for T/O. From now on until TA decides to change their mind again T/O will only be promotional which means you will need to be a B/O for NYCT or a C/R or Station Agent in their permanent title (past probation) to qualify for T/O. What ever title you can get that suits you either CR or BO get into that title and pass probation. When they have the next T/O exam you can take it.
  2. He was a Line superintendent I think 6 months as a T/O and he's back to where he was...
  3. Apparently there is a new schoolcar class for T/O scheduled September 21st
  4. I tried calling I think they still closed but if you are in the A Division contact Supt. Cunningham at 347-643-7759 (Crew Office) If you are in the B Division contact Queens Plaza at 347-643-8669
  5. Hi I have a question, is the MAC open for annuals? So far I only got that they are open for randoms, post incidents, & return to work, I called scheduling and my call wasn't answered and then CAS they were not sure as well. Does anyone have a straight answer for this, appreciate it in advance.
  6. The highest that may ever go to is 15 Miles but the first thing they would have to do is recalibrate the timed homeball after the switch, that clears around 5-8 miles.
  7. Timers (2 shots) after that sweeping curve & downgrade past Houston Street, after the curve if I remember correctly there are 3 automatics before time control begins. I take the first set of 2 shots at 33 mph, others I see are already doing it around 25 or even 20 mph through the first set! Then timers get more restrictive as you go through passing Canal you have to drop your speed into your early twenties around Franklin St until you are down into your teens around X30 Ball then you have the hooligan in Chambers St all 2 shot grade timers through that area. The timers that I hate are going into Park Place they are set for GT15 yet you have to crawl really really slow at them until they clear which slows things down.
  8. One top of the cutting page in the manual it says "The procedure of uncoupling, or cutting, cars MUST be performed in the correct sequence. Prior to uncoupling, the entire consist must be inspected." Also in the R62 portion it states "Pilot valves must be checked by charging the train at each end and all potential operating positions."
  9. Its in the download section on the bar at the top of the page
  10. They give it to you when you as a physical copy when schoolcar starts but they have it on this site for download
  11. Old School IRT signals been phased out for a while now, only few more signals you will be learning for A Division are the Gap Filler Signals. Depending on your instructors some may prefer the guide or rulebook which may differentiate. Gap Filler Signal: Rulebook & Signal Guide, major difference! Some might say both is okay but its better to go for the rulebook which is very direct & clear.
  12. That's done by seniority, after schoolcar when you are released to the road you are "extra" so you will have no choice in picking what jobs or lines you want to work on in your subdivision. A couple of years in title you can start picking jobs that suit you and days off, but to have RDOs on S/S (weekends off) it takes way more time since those are gone fast by people with higher seniority.
