  1. Just watching a bunch of Green LEDs entering 111, along with some slow red LEDs slowly going out on the yard lead...

      And all the buses are on FR and JFK Routes. Hey maybe he will see an OG, or a Bee Line Orion 5 Even.

      This is neat. I saved some files from the site, including a screencap of the service statuses including the V and W, and the March 2010 subway map.

      I almost miss the V looking at the pre-2010 maps.

  3. No tests during regents week :D. Looks like Im going to be pretty busy with (7) Station By Station

      Damn... (7) style. Why so much, most local stations are the same.

      Well those plans didn't happen,and it looks like (6) SBS will be completed first. Was sick for a few days during the week.

  4. I miss the days of the (7) train cars being non-smsed. Fortunately 2000 was and now will always be the lead car (though it doesn't howl anymore).

    1. ttcsubwayfan

      ttcsubwayfan

      What did they do in the SMS that the cars don't howl?

      I miss the midday express.

  5. Nivea must have ALOT of money....

      These are most likely going to test on the Dyre line which is why they are there. Same reason I saw that R142A in the shop (its a R142A, not a 188). Its prob going to test with the 188, to see if they are compatible.

  7. Don't know if this is true or not, but heard earlier that someone caught an R62 (not R62A on the (6)). It could have been a rerouted (3) or a temporary train for the (6) since its prob short a few trains. (This probably has NOTHING to do with the (7) getting R188's and all that)

      So it is temporary, and the next R62A move to Westchester should be happened very soon... not sure when though but definetly a little while before the first R188 starts service.

    3. 4P3607

      4P3607

      Oh, and I guess my post isn't true. It all has to do with the (7) getting R188's. and now I see the GCT cars will no longer be singles and now be 3-car sets... which makes no sense since one train is 4 cars. Unless that means they add an extra car and it has... a RFW! Or they meant 2 of those trains are a 4-car set. This is sure to get interesting, Im checking the (6) wednesday morning.

  8. This bus mix up is getting interesting... I know JFK has a few bees, Im hoping to see one pop up on the Q60.

  9. Heard there is supposed to be extra service on the (1) Thanksgiving morning for the parade... Maybe R142s but I doubt it.

  10. Working on a sig project, Its going to be my current signature but animated! Youll see when im done.

  11. Not sure if I brought this topic up before (sorry if I did), but it would be a great idea if this forum had the feature to like statuses. I really do see alot of good statuses from time to time.

    1. Harry

      Harry

      As soon as it's available I will include it

    2. Brighton Express

      Brighton Express

      Yeah I asked them, and they said it was not available on IP yet.

    3. 4P3607

      4P3607

      Alright, I look foward to it! :)

  12. There are 2 8-car R42's on the (C) right now!

  13. If anybody is a BVE route developer and would like to use the announcements I am about to come out with ((F) to Av X, (F) to Jay St, (J) to Marcy) They can. Simply message me I will send them to you via Email

    1. Threxx

      Threxx

      Mr. Railfan might want those.

  14. R62's will be on the (4) tomorrow. They should be on until whenever trains can run thru the Joraleman St tube

  15. R188 was testing on Dyre last Friday according to a post in the Subway Random Thoughts Thread, I can't wait to see that. (Finally not a storm-related post)

    1. 4P3607

      4P3607

      and another thought, Statuses should have the liking feature, I do see alot of good statuses around.

    2. CDTA

      CDTA

      +1 on the liking statuses

    3. Brighton Express

      Brighton Express

      I don't think that they have developed that yet, I can go ask the guys over there and see what they say.

  16. You think this storm is bad... Its worse when the wind is blowing right at your windows. At least they are all protected (used some under-carpet plastic and duct tape)

    1. Quill Depot

      Stop overreacting.

    2. 4P3607

      4P3607

      I wasn't lol, luckily everything is ok. That wind was constantly going at the windows though... Its better to be safe than sorry.

  17. Being sick has got to be one of the worst things. I just hope this passes by quickly, Tomorrow I got lots of plans and Monday is by B-day

  18. JFK RTS and the Bees... 2 things to focus on right now.

  19. (4) to Flatbush next weekend... This is gonna be really interesting.
  20. Going back when the OGs were new and each assigned depots in orderly groups. Now its more random like the RTSs, seems like when a bus fleet gets older it gets scattered around.

    1. Grand Concourse

      Grand Concourse

      Newer buses like the NF and the NGs are also scattered around. It's not limited to just the old buses. The only way you get a concentration of buses in one area would be the 3800-3959 NGs or the CNG O7s.

  21. Beans and Cornbread... Beans and Cornbread... beans & cornbread had a fight beans knocked cornbread out of sight...

  22. Well the (B) / (Q) swap didn't happen today as I was expecting... but its going to happen eventually. The milage problem on the R160's is getting worse.

      TheSubwayStation

      That's exactly what I'm wondering. What makes the R160s so special that they can't run full-time on the (N) and (Q) when other trains can? The R160s on the (E) and (F) aren't having issues, AFAIK. I still want to know where 4P3607 heard this from...

      Like junjun798, I think he's trying to seek attention...

      @Rollover: Don't even think about comparing me to Junjun...

      This swap is to eventually happen, but its not known when. Was told by someone who knows a C/R, the person who told me was Emannuel Bonilla (hes not on NYCTF/YT, only on FB)

  23. C40LF #368 has a weird transmission... it doesn't sound like the other new C40's, kinda has a whine to it.
