  2. R211 Discussion Thread

    Mta isn't gonna take chances with other builders, thank bombardier for that. Especially with the R179's being delayed and the issues that it currently has. Im not surprised that kawasaki won the order
  3. Canarsie Shutdown fleet swap thread

    The last 2 pages of this thread proves how dumb you foamers are. Im gonna get straight to the point. As a railfan having the R32's/42's on the and lines would be cool. And i never said i don't want to see them on there. The is the very logical choice, no sign changing. The only drawback with the is the Montague tube if a reroute occurs. Usually they'll suspend service or reroute it via culver so its not that big of a deal but if 1-4 trains are stuck between atlantic and dekalb its a problem. But the can run R32's as well as specials and etc. I could only see a maximum of 3 sets of R32's on the with the rest being on the (G). I still think the R32's would be split between 207th/pitkin and CI if all 222 cars stay. It would make sense to run 6-8 R32's with 3 R42's on the (A). The being all 75 footers during the shutdown would be dumb as f**k. I like how the is now 6 sets of R32's. I think that should be good enough with the rest can go to CIY. But lets just wait and see. We got atleast a few months. If it all goes smooth the R32's and R42's would be off the by march or april.
  4. R179 Discussion Thread

    I would just give the 136 R160A-1's and have ENY get 200 R179's this way only 2 yards would maintain them and have CIY have the 8 car R160's Or you can still have the R179's on the but give the 10 car sets to the lines instead of the and
  5. Canarsie Shutdown fleet swap thread

    R42's are staying, and the would have all the R160's with R68A's. The and would be mostly R46's with R68's. The will likely have the majority of the R32's that would be at CI yard. There's no telling where the R179's will be at with the exception of the lines.
  6. Canarsie Shutdown fleet swap thread

    They wanted them on the due to simply signage. The has 2 northern terminals vs. The which has one. The main reason why the stayed with NTT's vs. The is because the R142's have wider doors and it decreases dwell time and improve passenger flow vs the R62A's with standard doors.
  7. R32 Fleet Swap Discussion Thread

    As more R179's go into service on the the will gain a set or two of R46's and an R160 will go back to ENY. R179 goes into service, bumps an R32 to 207th (8 cars) 207th then sends an R160 to ENY to bump another R32 (8 more cars) to 207th. Then the looses a set or two of R46's to the while the gains an R32 set or two. Eventually the R42's will follow suit to 207th. Until further notice. As for the and being 100% R46's i don't agree with that. The R32's or 10 car R160's would be better due to dwell times. Especially when the shutdown happens. Its best to have both the and use a fair amount of 60 footers especially the (C). I would take the remaining R160's from CIY and give them to the (C).

  10. Canarsie Shutdown fleet swap thread

    Those R160's do have those things under the trucks and i pointed this out on facebook so that right there is clear evidence that the R46/160 swap is happening. But i don't know why they need to wait for the R179's to come in but I think i know why now they want to wait now.

  12. R179 Discussion Thread

    Plus its rumored that the R179 order has been modified so that we have more 5 car R179's. Bombardier has been late with the order so we might get free cars (B cars).
  13. R179 Discussion Thread

    I still think SOME R32's would be on the but Jamaica will loose some R46's to pitkin while a good portion of R32's would go to CIY and Jamaica would get their 92/9400's they lost back while the R32's would be deployed to the (G). Then if Jamaica and CI do the R46/160 swap then Jamaica looses their remaining R46's for an exchange for more R160's.

    Probably the A
  15. R179 Discussion Thread

    So how many R179's ENY is getting? It seems an R160 goes back to ENY plus an R179 goes in service then 16 R32's get sent to 207th st for service and the looses 1-2 R46's to the (C). I would say in about 3 months max if the R179's come in fast. ENY will be 100% NTT with the exception of fresh pond yard.
