    I saw a six-car M9 roll by my window about an hour and a half ago, going east towards Locust Manor. I just happened to look up since it sounded pretty much like an M7.

    Fare-beaters are going to fare-beat no matter what measure we take. Might as well have an aesthetically pleasing station for everyone else.

    De Blasio wants streetcar line on Brooklyn-Queens waterfront

    If I can bypass Manhattan coming from Queens, via subway, it works for me. Just as long as there are connections to other lines, it'll save time. I travel from Jamaica to Fordham via the subway and that is way faster than the bus will get me there. Some things are out of the question for some if the travel is too long, make the Bronx more accessible from Queens and things become open for consideration.

    Nah...you build a direct line between Queens and the Bronx, they'll be demand.

    No way these cars are traveling in single sets, right?

    Planned Subway Service Changes

    Yeah, the crowds for that split are ridiculous; not an enjoyable thing.

    Can the M7s be programmed to display what car in the consist you're in?

    Yeah, those tiles are like new, no need to replace them. I'm pretty sure we'll notice the difference when they open back up.
  9. Suppose the PA system in their car was not working... Suppose they go to mta.info for service changes and track work... I wouldn't be surprised if they owned a, you know, cell phone... Certainly you can get all that info there and know ahead of time. Yeah, some transit workers do have bad attitudes, but I'm pretty sure a lot of that comes from having to deal with jerk passengers that have no idea how the system works. You know, like the ones that leave their house with no cushion time; needing their commute to go absolutely perfect in order to get to work on time... ...No reason to put hands on the conductor.

    R179 Discussion Thread

    My guess is: 96th Street - 2nd Ave.

    No need. Coney Island takes the best care of cars. They'll fix em up. Just look at their R160 end windows, as compared to Jamaica's.

    Planned Subway Service Changes

    Is that yellow wall for sound proofing, kind of like how some Long Island highways have high wooden walls?
  13. I saw a train heading to Queens at 7 Av/53 St because of this. I had to find a different way to the Bronx.

    R179 Discussion Thread

    It's hard for me to believe that 3010-3019 are still have issues when they're the 179's with the most milage; IINM, they were delivered first. My theory is that they're being used to conduct a wide range of test...
  15. I just found out that it's called a swingnose crossing. In watching a few new LIRR RFW videos, I've seen that they're converting to that kind of switch heavily now. I like how they allow for smooth high-speed operation on crossovers.
