  1. Service in this general area needs improvement.the seems to operate better than the especially during the peak hours. Ive stopped working in Manhattan on a daily basis simply because the commute. And when i go to the city i drive or take the bxm11. Never the subway. Never the . Getting back to Burke Ave. I cant believe there isnt the possibility of a bus route being successful along burke av. I didnt even consider the bx30 but that is a pretty good idea. Or maybe the bx38. And either the route can transverse bronx park like the 26 or rejoin the 28 on gun hill heading west.
  2. Burke ave has gotten very busy and populated in the past 5 years i see droves of commuters walking down burke avenue after a train has pulled in as far as boston rd. Bx 30 would be a great solution. Also burke ave at one point did have a bus running on it the Bx8 terminated at burke ave station. Popuation growth caused itss extention north to 228th.
  3. I have been living in the general area of Burke Avenue in the Bronx for sometimeand as a commuter I've noticed the amount of pedestrians that transverse Burke Avenue to and from the subway station. So the question or topic I wanted to discuss is if it would make sense for bus service to run along Burke Avenue or possibly a van route similar that connects to the at 233rd Street/ White Pains Rd.?
  4. Its been quite some time since I've posted on here, but the Bx46 topic makes me kinda nostalgic . When I was a kid and would come up with fictitious bronx routes and one of them looked pretty much like the bx46. And as a kid I didnt think the route would be practical. But since it is here I think i does have potential. I believe if the 46 was extended via 156th Street towards Yankee Stadium the route's ridership would benefit from new residential developments along 156th and St. Anns while adding that much needed additional service along 161. you could even extend to Gateway Mall.
  5. thanks MTA Traveler! so far so good Ive taken 3 tests so far and I got thru! 70 people were in the orientation and its seems like a little under 40 made it. I go for a panel interview in about a week and I have about 3 weeks to learn signals and definitions.
  6. I was wondering if anyone has recently went thru LIRR's Orientation for Locomotive engineer. This has been my dream job since I was a kid so I want to be completely prepared. So My question is in my orientation letter it was stated that there would be two tests.... does anyone know what those two tests are about, what may be on them and possibly how to prepare. Many thanks in advance.

  8. What was on the exam? I recieved a letter for the exam but im a little turned off by what the rate of pay is going to be... $17/h?!
  9. is it me or am i noticing a lot of nova artics with problems? this week alone ive seen two being serviced roadside, and one being towed to gun hill.
  10. in terms of running Limits or SBS buses under an EL its pointless. Its highly irritating when im on BXM11 that has caught up to a Bx39 under WPR El. The BxM11 essentially makes all local stops behind the Bx39.. But I actually think the switch has helped Bx39 Headways and I would be against changing current service on WPR.
  11. I hate to say it but if the MTA kept the 241-Flatbush GO permanently I would be pretty happy.
  12. I appreciate the explanation and I was really hoping someone on the inside could tell me why its so bad on the WPR line. Your analysis has given me better incite on what goes on with the . But I wish some how service could be organized in such a way that passengers aren't left out in the cold waiting long periods of time for a while 3 or 4 trains go by. Ironically after two weeks of no local service on the WPR line (every train that i took went express to Gun Hill) last night i finally caught a train that actually went to 238th. But I do see your point. I put no blame on operators thing happen. But If you have a literal mob at 180th of train passengers transferring to a and I've seen it many times, maybe the MTA needs to re-evaluate how to deal with the WPR line .....and i still think the would be helpful.
  13. They were built for freight for pennsy by GE. Pennsy and Amtrak occasionally used the engines for passenger duty. NJT also has a few but as a passenger engine they werent that useful.
  14. Funny I was thinking about this topic yesterday evening. I live on Burke Avenue on the White Plains Rd. Line and from Grand Central I try to catch the to 238th. I think the the is the best designation for the White Plains Rd Service. and thats if the to 238 actually goes to 238th. It seems like the WPR (5)s in the PM rush barely serve WPR. Literally every train seems to just go to Gun Hill Rd. Which seems pointless to me. At least serve the stops in between. I know when these trains are late they just go straight to the yard. but maybe they shouldnt be late. I think its highly unfair that because of the MTA's mistakes the passengers have to suffer and crowd onto an already crowded train.
