  1. Here's a readable version of that message: https://www.reddit.com/r/nycrail/comments/g7rc8p/r32_officially_retired_i_always_hated_seeing_one/ I personally am glad the R32's will meet their end now, since ridership has declined, the R179's have been getting more reliable and R211's will be rolling through city tunnels in just a couple of years. R32's will be missed, but times must go on; and I imagine the agency would be relieved at not having to maintain them ever again (at least for revenue service).
  2. No The was rerouted to the Lexington and the ran on the line to 137th street from 96th street I believe. With every regular stop after 96th street being served by shuttle buses. 86th and 96th street were also closed briefly for FDNY investigation https://mymtaalerts.com/m?D8D32
  3. Possibly, I feel the picture would not have been taken if they did know about it, and I do also feel it should be removed. Putting that aside, the T/O's response in such a tragedy must be commended, he helped out even at a time when less and less people are riding the system. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family, as well as the people affected. @B35 via Church Me and my AP Physics teacher actually talked about the possibility of the system getting shut down (when talking about the coronavirus, before it closed schools), we both agreed it's basically impossible. The public would want the system shut down, without considering the people and workers it still continues to serve. People are instinctively anti-subway when tragedy hits, and it's usually not necessitated.
  4. With the AP classes and extracurriculars I'm in, I could never! 🤣 The is a very excellent route for fan railing, right next to the bay and also traversing many different station types and surroundings.It's also where the R40's retired around 10 years ago, so it'll be nice for many to relive those times. The current reality of the MTA hasn't been met with mass fortunes or plain stability as it had in the past, I expect the NTT generation of cars to outlive the R32's if the agency doesn't get itself together.
  5. They basically do the same thing, use whichever one you like. He definitely did in many ways, he flipped the state of Toronto’s transit system so I had no doubt he would do good for us. I do hope the gets better from here, at its current state though, that sounds like a hilarious thing to say.
  6. The is a public agency and it cannot go explicitly bankrupt in NYS. They would be well underfunded and changes within the agency would have to occur, but they cannot file for Chapter 7 or 11.
  7. Not at all, the extra MTAPD forces are intended to combat farebeating and homeless troubles to my knowledge in certain stations. They pretty much serve as assistance to the NYPD.
  8. There is no service in both directions between Broad Channel and Far Rockaway Mott Av because a customer was struck by a train at Beach 25 St. Use the Q22 or Q52 as ’s will run to 116, the LIRR will accommodate metrocard holders as well at Far Rockaway LIRR station. — Beach 25st seems to be a hotspot for these incidents in the past decade.
  9. Correct, (for wally) It lies on the former Rockaway Beach Branch track, but it never served any LIRR trains to my knowledge as it was built and opened alongside the racetracks renovation (around 1959). Which was after the LIRR line closed. Map below was before the RBB closed i believe. The MTA is the one to blame for not making the racetrack stop southbound after it was built, as they rejected the proposal to do so earlier in the decade.
  10. Haven't met anyone, but I saw @Around the Horn in early July taking photos of an R179 at Mott Av. (was when my profile picture was taken). I didn't realize it was him shooting the photos until now when I looked through his flikr and saw the photos were dated the same. Wish I'd known sooner, small world...
  11. Good, much newer member here but I also enjoy NYCT as well. hows Philly btw?
  12. You're cutting service basically to a portion of a line and not providing back any service in return, the cut would give less service south and north of 34 and be a bottleneck at the terminal which reduces tph on the . The can still run express, but cutting the line makes it harder for the and other IRT lines to run.
  13. Supplemental lines are part of the backbone of the system, simply put. Running most lines without them would leave a lot on the plate for primary lines to take care of. The would need to terminate at the 's northern terminal occasionally to not lose service there, and the wouldn't be able to scale services very easily without them. If the IRT turns into a mess as it often does, less service could make troubles more likely. The current setup isn't completely optimal, though i wouldn't encourage cutting the by any means. Do you know any current ways to increase off peak service (on any line), by chance? what a troll 😒, reported.
