    R179 Discussion Thread

    It's great to see the R179s in-service on the Rockaways and seeing Fulton St line with new techs. Just a tip (not to be disrespectful to others): storm-doors are not to be opened or played within the entire train. This also concerns electronics being held and by accident: it fell off your hand and somewhere it couldn't be picked up

    I did hear that Rock Park trains mostly start btwn Dyckman St and 168 St. If this is alright to ask, what's a WAA? Is it like a train starts/ends service at the terminal: the doing a round trip between Bedford Park Blvd and Brighton Beach during the AM rush.

    Yes they do. 1 R142 gets broken at Eastchester: it runs as a shuttle from 11:50PM until 5AM (last shuttle to E.180 St).

    Yesterday, it wasn't bad heading to Lefferts Blvd. It stood at Chambers St for about 10 mins. b/c of smoke condition on the Cranberry St tube.

    Based on the R179 movement, this type of train runs along the entire Fulton St line in Brooklyn (both under/above ground).

    I notice that the R179s don't have that pinwheel vision on the first/last car of the train but on the 160s, that can be shown
