    M-9 Discussion

    What's the difference between the yellow M9s and the regular M9s. Also, why are the LIRR diesel trains double-decker and the third-rail LIRR trains (M series) single-decker?

    A conductor on the train I was on told me that they're thinking about extending the to Lefferts Blvd with the going to Far Rockaway-Mott Av and Rockaway Park with no more Rockaway Park shuttle. She told me that it can take up to 1 year.

    I saw R179 cars 3122-3125 on the test track area between Howard Beach-JFK and Broad Channel.

    As I came off the train at Fulton St from Far Rockaway at 10:22AM, I saw a redbird train leaving Fulton St on the downtown platform. It had Main St rollsigns. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time to take a picture.

    The extra trains to Rockaway Park won't work because CBTC with trains every 2 minutes will result in a lot of trains in layover in Far Rockaway. The Q113/114 is not quicker because it's 8 minutes to the nearest bus stop with long waiting times resulting in walking being more quicker.

    A yard is for storing trains. Reads Lane Terminal will be a 2-track island platform with tail tracks so it can be possible to have 20tph for CBTC.

    The plan would be that the extends to Lefferts Blvd with all the trains going to Far Rockaway. Far Rockaway-Mott Av can only have 2 trains stored in there so they would build a complex Reads Lane Terminal station which would replace Mott Av with Reads Lane as the new terminal station and the new Reads Lane terminal station would be build with tail tracks to fit more trains. It would be really needed because of more frequent trains for CBTC. I'm keep on seeing Far Rockaway ridership growing.

    I came to the Parade of Trains today at 11AM. I got to ride on all 3. I was on the last BMT Standard before they took it out of service. Did it ever come back into service today? I also met @Dj Hammerstoday. I thought the D-type triplex were meant to be a stationary train at the Parade of Trains. Did I miss anything from the 16th?

    Why can't the Parade Of Trains ride the whole Brighton Express?

    It also mentions a shorter round trip to Ocean Parkway. I'm talking about will there be special Brighton Express service for people commuting to the Parade Of Trains or is there only the regular weekend Brighton Local service?
