  1. Everyone who suggests that the go through the tunnel don't understand how much time going over the bridge saves. It saves at least 10 minutes. Waiting a minute or 2 before Prince for the other train to go first? I'll gladly take it. And it isn't even much of an issue on days when trains run on schedule.
  2. I was stuck in this. My got to 36th around 8:20 where they announced it was rerouted to the , but I wasn't aware of what's going on, so I got off and waited for the next one, which ran slowly to 59th. It was held there for about 10 minutes until I got fed up and went upstairs for the B9. Apparently I made the decision too late, cause two minutes later, everyone emerged from the station, and let's just say the ride was a mess. :tdown:
  3. Does anyone know the details to the work they're doing around the Pacific Street area that requires and to be local? Looked like they had rocks and everything there, so I was curious. Thank you.
  4. It's been like this for years. The next car, 5133, is also missing a rollsign.
  5. I live on top on a Sea Beach line station, which is why I don't like the 160's. They're REALLY loud. Louder than any older equipment. I still like living here though, since it's so convenient.
  6. I'd take slight delays at merge points than riding through the tunnel. Why? Because it still gets me and other riders to our destinations much more quickly. If it does go tunnel, everyone's gonna jump off at DeKalb, and that would create unnecessary extra crowding on trains.
  7. I hope those rumors about the getting 68/A's back is gonna come true. :tup:
  8. You bitching about people bitching about this is just as annoying. I hope you've noticed.
  9. I kinda miss the manual announcements, but the good thing about NTT's are when the C/R needs to make a delay/detour announcement, there's a "ding" sound before, so I'd know to take off my headphones and not miss what he said. There was this really cheerful C/R on the that went like: "This a N train toooo Manhattannn, step in, stand cleeear of the closingggggg doooooooors." Loved that guy. And another C/R's announcement at 8th Ave was: "8th Ave, Brooklyn Chinatown." I was like wow, and I smiled at the acknowledgement.
  10. I was there around 8:30. They were still making the announcements about not stopping, but the that was there when I got off the did open its doors. A section of gap fillers near the center was fenced out though, and there were like 3 MTA employees there.
  11. It's part of living in New York, just deal with it. If you're bothered that much, then you can always start shit with them.
  12. Interiors are terrible as well. There's ALWAYS some kind of stains on the seats, and there's a certain unpleasant smell on these trains that I don't smell on the 160's from the other yards.
  13. Nice pics. Does anyone know why they programmed "via 59th St" instead of like "4 AV LOCAL" or something?
