  1. Depends...you can suggest things you want to do, but in general there are always pressing needs and the guys who are there all the time like Ted or Jeff know what's going on and what needs to be done.


    As for the R17, the paint on that car actually isn't so bad. I'm going to be floating the idea of some paint work on the interior of the Lo V at some point and the R9 will probably need it as well

  2. haha "just the motor"


    -2 motors need to be swapped out with the ones we've rebuilt, then placed under the car on the existing truck. Shoe beams need to be reattached once this is done.

    -Jacks and power supply for the jacks have to be set up for this to happen.

    -Air brake parts need to be repaired/rebuilt

    -Resistor grid needs replacement

    -600V fuse will probably need to be replaced as well but that's relatively minor.

    -Car needs to be inspected after that to make sure nothing else went wrong.


    Then it'll run! :P

  3. heh...I got work on Friday so just having a couple myself tops, but the food's good there too...


    I guess I can sleep all day Sunday to make up the lost sleep heh but it's worth it to finally meet yous....

  4. nice...adding to the collection i see...i've still got to make it down to Train World and see if they have any 6688's left...


    also need to see what's going on the with the rodeo, if i'm going or not...


    and still need the rest of those plastic sheets for my rule book...


    and need to order the rest of my BERA uniform...


    not enough hours in the day...


    meant to ask, think you can scan some of those work equipment sheets to me sometime? that stuff was pretty cool

  5. Not the signs themselves, no. If you're talking about field shunting, see this thread: http://www.nyctransitforums.com/forums/showthread.php?p=121586#post121586


    When it was active, field shunts were controlled by the ENRCON switch which had a "LCL" and "EXP" position so perhaps that explains the confusion

  6. sounds good...i'm there. I passed the word along to JH via email tonight too and filled DD in.


    I'll be up both 9/5 and 9/6 (or at least will try to be). The other JH will be piloting the cars. "I may not do the same thing both days" PM me if you dont get what i mean.

  7. that's no good...


    wonder if Jeff will put in an appearance... maybe they've got some bus stuff for him too :P

  8. The process of putting together a replacement resistor grid for 1689 has begun...


    You're coming Sunday right?

  9. yup got a 99 on the practical...i'm now provisionally qualified


    oh and you're going to love this...about 20 mins after i finished the power went out...just got in the nick of time...there were some insulator problems a couple blocks away that affected everything...

  10. ahh not yet...decided to sleep in today to catch up for a change...might go during the week though, gotta see when i can get outta work

  11. and for the record i have no problem with you about the whole thing so don't even worry about it

  12. Behind anyone standing there. It does nothing on current equipment now though, except on the R62A cars with side LED circles or diamonds, where it controls whether the circle (LCL) or diamond (EXP) displays on the side signs.

  13. can you forward me the email the guy from TWear sent you with all the designs?

  14. field shunting was, yes

  15. Great...we got plenty of handle time and worked with some of the different equipment...I did pretty good on Sat...next week we go into more detail...are you coming up to work shops/track this week?

  16. haha that's funny...by the way i'll be going up on Saturday, let me know if you're interested but I will be operating during the day

  17. haha yeah you got that right, sounds like a good idea

  18. hmm that link didn't work...i'll try it again on fire fox when i get my computer fixed, this is my work computer...

  19. i got somethin ive been meaning to send you for a while but i dont remember your email address...PM me it?

  20. if i take the train it will be the 807 AM train...im still not sure if I might drive or not, I might need the extra hours of sleep on the train and don't know if I want to park it when I get back...I'll let you know by mid week

  21. if you're talking about the new designs from that guy, no not yet

  22. initials DR?

  23. is DD still coming up this Saturday? JH mentioned he spoke with DD at the ERA meeting and the charter wasn't going to happen since those guys would come up another day...was wondering because you could take your road test if you let me or JH know by Fri and word can get to George. Plus I've got to qualify on 629 still so it could be a day for ops which would be nice...haven't had handle time in a couple weeks anyway...

  24. its not a question of "like" with me you know that...its an inside joke b/w me and Matt but in short we don't find anything particularly interesting about them...they're just big cars
