  1. R179 Discussion Thread

    There are a few possible car assignments dependent on certain factors. Can’t say much more at this time.
  2. R179 Discussion Thread

    Plans are still up in the air and may change regarding exactly which car type(s) will be on the line

    3010-3019 is still testing various things. At the moment they're doing CBTC interface testing. Both consists were/are being used for tests that didn't have to be completed before the start of revenue service.
  5. R179 Discussion Thread

    I'm not sure what the exact design of the test is, but apparently, they had to do a couple of round trips up and down the line.
  6. R179 Discussion Thread

    The operation with 3050-53 yesterday wasn’t burn-in testing. It was a power consumption test.
  7. It's very likely that there will be some short turns. Likely running at 3 TPH. Combined with a 12 TPH full route frequency, you get a 15 TPH service between Bedford-Nostrand and Court Square.
  8. Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    I’m already participating in ICAP. In fact, I’m somewhat involved in running it!
  9. Conductor 6601 Hiring Process

    Ha! i probably won’t take the position as a career since I’m already working in admin as it is, but going through training may be an interesting experience. Can’t manage the system without having field experience.

    Got a 98.75. My list number is 3xx.

    This "equipment testing" on the Brighton line doesn't always necessarily have to be related to the R179s. It can be R160s, R46s, R68s, etc.
  12. Any news on the new Midtown Master Tower?

    It is indeed. I've personally seen the model board for the tower there. We may also see a reconfiguration of the 30th St interlocking in some manner as part of this. Not sure though.
  13. R179 Discussion Thread

    And the news I couldn't speak about is finally out! From today's CPOC meeting: "A settlement has been reached between NYCT and Bombardier with respect to liquidated damages. As a result of the settlement, an additional R179 16 cars will be provided as part of this contract, increasing the quantity of 10 car trains from 4 to 12". Source (Go to 24:39 in the video): https://youtu.be/j9zfldErD4Q?t=24m39s This may make some of the things I mentioned regarding these cars make a lot more sense now.
  14. Probably the R32 via the to Coney Island.
