  1. R179 Discussion Thread

    ... wut... The 179 combined throttle/brake handle is of a newer design, same as the one used in the 188s. The end-seat removal on the R160 is an in-house project, and has no bearing on the as-delivered spec of the 179s.

    Well, the trucks haven't started cracking yet, so.....
  3. R179 Discussion Thread

    Latest from the unconfirmed rumor mill is that the R179s are benched for a full software rewrite; no date yet on when that will be done and the cars will be back in revenue testing.

    Failed again 11/29 (reportedly door problems), was not out 11/30.

    Test train just failed. Offloading at 111th and taking it out of service. That lasted long lmao. You can all go home now.

You are free, however to further modify the physics enhancements found in this pack for personal use if you so choose. This is both a sound (preliminary) AND physics mod.

    ... all CBTC installation post Canarsie is designed to accommodate non-CBTC-compatible equipment running with 5-min interval buffers ahead and behind using wayside equipment. I really don't know how people would think there would be NO way to run C-division moves over CBTC territory. Additionally, I don't know how any of this has to do with the R179.
