    How does MTA maintenance install those looped stanchions? They look Soldered on then painted. But on some cars the bars are crooked.

    Those “video surveillance” stickers are appearing quickly on every subway car. (As far, I’ve seen. Jamaica’s and East New York’s cars with them). They’re placed adjacent to the cab windows.

    Random thought: Since the has an R179 in service while the has them in regular service, what’s preventing these cars from making their way via the ??

    That type of reconstruction would take many years and cost soooo much money. Solution: update signals, run more trains per hour.

    I think everyone notices the R179’s. I heard someone say “oh this is a new train it’s shiny and brighter”... I even encountered a few comments about the “cuomo scheme” R160’s. (Most passengers believe that those sets are brand new)

    R179 Discussion Thread

    3050-3053 subway ads are positioned lower than usual. And some cars; specifically the 313x’s have different floors. Inconsistent work on these cars. Smh.

    R32 and R46 going to the B Line???

    I wanna see/read these “complaints” it’s New York City, its loud or noisy anywhere you are. The R160’s are HEAVIER than R46’s so what vibrations are you talking about. Neither of us are architects or landscape experts so stop with all the hearsay please; unless you or anyone can furnish tangible receipts that prove otherwise. All I’m reading is back and fourth speculation and false theories/reasoning behind car assignments and availability. Chill out. Some facts have been stated in previous threads NUMEROUS times. If you have a genuine concern, use google or privately message a member. Y’all gotta stop competing with each other or bringing each other down. Word of advice: What you feel/think is wrong may be right in someone’s mind; and vice versa. Carry on kiddos.

    The is due for CBTC as per Byford’s capital plan. So obviously the 8-car R160’s will be housed at CI for service even after the Shutdown.

    Who’s shouting? It’s text. You calm down and don’t bark up my tree.

    You just contradicted your own argument. The ’s cars are based out of Coney Island as well as the And the and do not swap cars whatsoever especially since the ’s R160’s come from Jamaica.

    R32 and R46 going to the B Line???

    The R32’s aren’t making their way to CI. If that were to happen, what are 207th Street getting in return? And what’s this annoying rumor that R46’s are getting sent to CI in exchange for more R160’s for Jamaica?? That’s not happening for another 3-5 years. The shutdown doesn’t mean Swap all cars from yard to yard to appease anyone’s eyes. The shutdown called for more service and longer trains. The only valid rumor is the 4 car configured R160s heading over to Coney Island and that assignment may be permanent because of the botched 8-car R179 order.

    The “Cuomo scheme” R160 was on the yesterday. And now most the sets are getting mixed in with the standard dull R160s. Also like to add that some sets have the wrap partially removed.
