  1. Those R42’s look like hell... well some cars do. I hope they get cleaned up and shaped up before CI accepts them.

    From what I understand, those R143’s are spares at this point. The is definitely using more R160’s as of late...

    Interesting how there weren’t trains laid up on the Queens Boulevard Express tracks this weekend from VanWyck Boulevard to 75th Avenue...

    The to 179th Street will solve NOTHING! That’s a completely pointless extension. Maybe trains to 179th during rush hours may be a decent proposal.

    What they need to do is assign some the ‘s R142’s to the and some of the ’s R142A’s to the to balance out AC maintenance/SMS.

    They really should have paired 1901-1905 as a 5-car link and sent it to Westchester!

    Lol. As per rail fan I can totally understand PREFERENCE. But to commute, why does it affect someone’s mood or time is BEYOND me. It’s like odering an Uber and a Honda pulls up as opposed to a Toyota Camery... seriously either car still runs and you’re still getting to your destination!!

    Canarsie isn’t as dangerous anymore. Brownsville and East New York Are atrocities still.

    Y’all buggin out talkin about avoiding car classes... every day riders don’t car what the model is. They’re grateful for a train to arrive and not to be delayed. As far as mere preference (on the eyes) it’s feasible that anyone would like a newer model. (NTT)

    I Can’t understand the grammar but if you’re asking why Jamaica has some Coney Island R160’s and vise versa ?? It is because of the “Cuomo scheme” overhauls. Some Coney Island sets which were R160B’s were overhauled to make more standing space in the cars. They sent those R160B’s to Jamaica for service. In return, Jamaica sent some of their R160A sets. This way niether yard would have a car shortage.
