  1. There is a forward camera and LIDAR on that train. MTA must be piloting a 12-9 detector like at 50th Street. I doubt any transpo engineer would authorize AV tech for dark territory ATP. I've heard rumors about MTA trying something with radio location distance to the nearest radio node mounted on the wall, instead of the passive track bed beacons beacons to save installation $.
  2. A 1:59am from Far Rockaway arrives at 207 10 minutes before the "first train" of the day if the closure is only "2 hours". The current schedule has "last departures" as early as 1205am so last revenue train arrive at terminals at 1:30am or upto 215am.
  3. Also FHVs as AAR had to buy/pay for extra training and "federal" licenses. Uber drivers arent ADA trained to deal with blind, sign language, colostomy bags, etc. Also federally paid drivers must be drug/background checked.
  4. "Civil Speed Protection" for R211? what is that? ACSES or Toronto Speed Control System for NYCT?
  5. NTT B cars are interchangeable. A cars and CBTC "C cars" are sketchy. All cars in a set have APUs/LVPS/batteries. Either all A cars or all B cars have compressors. Too much redundant auxiliary equipment other railroads skip making NYCT cars extra heavy.
  6. In DC spray dry chem in the cars is common past time of teens. NYCT Subway cars have no egress since vandals would open the doors in motion all day.
  7. Metrocard is not capable of distance based fares.
  8. Walk to Carle Place. Transfer at Jamaica to E then M/R.
  9. Perhaps during a mid life R188 style overhaul, reconfig to 5 car. A-A pairs are always a choice.
  10. 600/10 vs 480/8 stopping mistakes are why R46s were removed from the C.
  11. R46s tend to have same problem when in stations with door open. Door gravity slides closed 1.5 inches then door motor reyanks it open, it drifts closed, motor yanks it open again, until door officially closed and light off. Hearing it dift on a rolling SMEE is new to me.
  12. Afaik they r used for auto annoucement triggers atm 2 avoid odometer drama since r160s came out day 1 2009 or whenever. True?
  13. TBM a 4th track under the existing 3, 145 and fordham is already have room for 4. I cant remem if the D's bridges over cross streets on Concourse have room for a 4th track or not.
