  1. I saw the same train around the same time at Essex St, it was doing fine and the break was quite and smooth compared to other cars.
  2. The reader stands were installed at last week(or earlier this week) at 75th st station . It is safe to assume that the reader stands were also installed at Cypress hill / 85th st / woodhaven blvd / 121st st stations. I would update when they install the readers and activate the readers.
  3. Is that possible to implement a block-list system like other forums? This system would automatically hide the replies that are written by the users in the block-list and provide a "click to unhide this hidden reply" function. It is real headache even skimming through(yeah,not even reading) these "facts" again and again. And a friendly reminder: Please use multi-quote when possible. It will take you a little more time but it will save other people much more time.
  4. Actually you can use a little force to open it, last time I saw somebody opened it by about 3 inches because he wanted to balance himself during a hard braking.
  5. Great, the entire line gotta be shitty again with R32's return. The Bway Junt-Crescent St-Woodhaven Blvd express gotta be returned as well(If you are a rider, you know what I am talking about.) BTW, I dont think 8ave CBTC will be finished/activated before MTA has enough R211s to replace all the R46s which we are not going to see in at least two years. So I dont see the points of swap.
  6. I saw two sets of R42 heading to Board St on Wednesday PM rush. One showed up as and the other one showed up as .
  7. The Fareback Fridays promotion is back! Here is the link: https://www.mastercard.us/en-us/consumers/offers-promotions/fareback-fridays-promotion.html
  8. I had been two R32/R42 trains with door problem and they just discharged the whole train. But I do frequently see some trains are running with one side door locked.
  9. Trains Rerouted There are service changes and delays in and train service because NYPD has requested that we remove third-rail power at Utica Av. Southbound and trains are running along the local track from 145 St to Canal St. Southbound and trains are running on the express track from 145 St to 59 St-Columbus Circle. Southbound trains are running on the express track from 42 St-Port Authority/Bus Terminal to Canal St. These reroutes are interesting.
  10. Some of the ENY sets are sent to CI yard to get deep cleaned. I guess that they put R42 in service to prevent sudden dead because of being place in the yard and not running for a long time.
  11. Based on my experiences, they run R42 on on weekday rush hour only and they run R42 the whole day on the weekend especially if there was planned service change. They had cut the service back to Crescent St on the weekend for the past few months and it was very easy to catch a R42 that I almost caught it every time. Btw, I have seen that they lay up R179/R160 at 111 st a few times.
  12. how about shuttle between 42nd st-time sq to coney island.
