  1. Since the first phase is just an extension of the and there'll be no other parts of the SAS ready to run on, I imagine they'll label trains on the Phase 1 SAS the from the start! The SAS won't go below the splitoff to the (Q)'s tracks until Phase 3 - which was originalyl going to be when the service was to be introduced, but if they don't have the freed up I imagine the "split terminals" for the will result in to Astoria remaining and to 96th street(phase 1)/125th street(phase 2) being the .
  2. Guessing from your nametag you're a mechanic that fishes. Same here. My name is Joe and I work for College Point Depot as a body mechanic. I'm in my 32yr of service and have 3yrs to go for retirement. I'm a avid surf fisherman on Long Island beaches.

  3. That's why they're doing a full overhaul of the tram. The trams were built in 1976 and were only expected to last 17 years - when you rode in 2006 they were already 13 years past their due date to be demolished or replaced.
  4. If it pays for itself in 2 years, it sounds good to me.
  5. Yeah, Vancouver has had an all ATO system for 3 decades or more now.
  6. I thought there was some issue with track connections and clearances - it's not that the R46s can't run on the , they just cause problems somehow.
  7. Tons of courier companies do dispatch over encrypted channels - they're boring anyway.
  8. Don't forget - Staten Islanders still don't have to pay for the SIR if they take a bus to it. You take any Staten Island bus route and transfer to the SIR, you get one free transfer at the St George fare gates and another free transfer at Whitehall/South Ferry or any Manhattan bus that stops at the ferry terminal or nearby.
  9. Meh, the ferry fare was never all that much, and besides if you're taking the ferry you're probably taking the subway or a bus on the Manhattan side and a bus or the SIR on the Staten Island side. I say: let's reinstate allowing cars to be taken on the ferry, each of the ferries with car holding capability can hold like 20 cars minimum right? Reinstate the car toll - I believe it was $5 until cars on the ferry were banned after 9/11 - let's make it $8 now each way.
  10. Yo sorry guys but crime is going down in NYC big time. Maybe it would go down faster if it was easier to have a gun but regardless there's a ton more places you can feel safe walking at 2 am these days than 10, 5, or even 3 years ago.
  11. Noone really knows, but extending service to areas with none is always good. It's not like adding another subway trunk to extreme lower Manhattan, there is no subway service there.
  12. Well they are putting more R46s onto the , I imagine it replaced the 3 R32 trainsets it had. Will the still have R32s on late-nights/other times the doesn't run though?
  13. I think that's what's being done, the will be all R160/R42 8-car trains.
  14. It won't be a Nassau Local unless you want to count that single stop it will be on the Nassau Street Line.
