  1. MTA now says all R32s will be retired in Spring 2020
  2. Thank You for Explaing, because @R32 3838 and @nightmare402 don't even know and have a clue what they're talking.
  3. YES all R46s will be replace by R211s, it even MTA Said it will Replace all R46s, All R46s are Old.
  4. R46s are Old that is why digital side destination signs flipping like crazy, when R211s arrived in Q3-Q4 2020 and put in service in 2021, R211 cars would be produced and delivered at a rate of 30 to 40 cars per month by replacing all R46s and R44s, perhaps R68s if structural integrity issues found on R68s like it did with NYCT R44s that caused the Option 2 Order of R160s by replacing all NYCT R44s.
  5. 8th Avenue CBTC will not be compatible with R211s? First of all, I'm fully aware of Fleet Swaps Between CI Yard and Jamaica, Second I'm aware that Jamaica will be fully R160s but when R211s are replacing R46s, R211s produced and delivered at a rate of 30 to 40 cars per month, it will be going to first to CI Yard and Pitkin by Replacing all the R46s and R44s, then after that it will go to Jamaica Yard in conjunction with the installation of CBTC on the IND Queens Boulevard Line, by that time in 2021 CBTC in QBL will be completed and activated. so that means Jamaica Yard might be fully R211s and Coney Island Yard might be R160s again.
  6. R211s are replacing all R46s and R44s, new R211 cars would be produced and delivered at a rate of 30 to 40 cars per month.
  7. http://web.mta.info/mta/news/books/pdf/190122_1400_CPOC.pdf read this at page 29 It says the first R211A test train was scheduled to be delivered in July 2020, In Close coordination in conjunction with the installation of CBTC on the IND Queens Boulevard Line, which must provide the on-board equipment, mock-ups, drawings and other technical information for Kawasaki’s use, is required in order to insure on time delivery of the Initial Train in July 2020, Thereafter, new R211 cars would be produced and delivered at a rate of 30 to 40 cars per month. Which This Means Jamaica Yard will be receiving R211s for CBTC in QBL and Return/Swap all R160s back to Coney Island Yard.
  8. Actually Congress Passed More than 400 Bills about Voting Rights, Election Security, Universal Healthcare, Progressive Tax, Increase Corporate Tax, Free Education, Green New Deal, Eliminating National Debt and etc but the Senate under Mitch McConnell had blocked all of it, Also Candidates like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are the ones who are more addressing issues like you said wealth gap, poor quality of K–12 education, crumbling infrastructure, high cost of college education, anxiety about jobs like upcoming automation, Amazon and other e-commerce, anxiety about medical costs, climate change and national spending and debt, They both Promised/Vowed to Cancel Student Debts, Free Education, Universal Healthcare, Universal Childcare, Progressive Tax, Increase Corporate Tax, Job Guarantee, Breaking up Big Tech Corporations like Amazon, Facebook and Walmart, Modernizing US Infrastructure, Combating Climate Change and etc. Also Keep in Mind that 20% of Bernie Supporters had voted for Trump in 2016 because Hillary was a Terrible Candidate.
  9. MTA should put CBTC on Astoria Line and Second Avenue Line instead of QBL, Asotria and Second Avenue Line are Slow AF.
  10. Hello Everyone, Who is gonna win 2020 presidential election? to me, i do not want that Orange Face MF Donald Trump to win Re-Election, I Want him to lose.
  11. The Swap has got to stop ASAP, R160s should return to CI Yard, R46s should be stayed in Jamaica until R211s came to service in 2021 plus CBTC in QBL is fully completed by that time.
