  1. Sets that have been delivered and yet to be in service: 3288-3302. 3293-3302 in burn-in during most of this week. 3288-3292 maybe testing with another set.
  2. I like how these arguments just trails off the subject title in question. Bravo, guys lol. I simply think that the weekends don't really much demand unless it's a planned GO, obviously. Besides, that switch formation between Franklin Ave and Nostrand Ave don't need to be utilized if it's not peak hours; it'll just halt the trains unnecessarily when they can just go pass without waiting for a crossing train. It was always the that made it possible and I believe that was the brief reason why they cut it after 2010 regardless on finances but of course, brought it back for weekday demands. I think most of us know these reasons are obvious. No? Well.... ain't that something.
  3. "Here lies the raises and falls, raises and falls again with the in the 2010s" Cool pics btw
  4. But no. It's going by a particular, realistic schedule if there's no delays. There's no reason to truly rush to process. Kawasaki has done a good job so far based on their track record, I guess....
  5. Because Competition and diversity is a thing with bidding..... #1. You make it sound like it might be a bad thing. #2. Kawasaki is not the confirmed award winners for the 262s. If you're not aware, up to speed, these R62 replacements are under considerable planning and discussion. With that being said, nothing is said in stone yet. Patience, good sir....
  6. Gentlemen..... Please give me a fruitless, logical reasoning for why would CBTC hold any obligational demand on a route serving two stations only with it's own tunnels crossing midtown 1/2 mile......??? I'm looking at the track map of said tunnels and wondering WHY!?!?
  7. 3070-73 is still on property, it still counts as compilation of delivery. Dude wasn't referring to testing really.....
  8. 1. It's too early to tell for sure. 2. Suck it up or take a different route until the replacements arrive.
  9. Option #2 = 405 cars (81 five-cars sets) + 32 cars (8 four-car sets)
  10. Let's not derail this thread so early before the bidding and conceptions starts, fellas.
  11. We cannot rule out the heavy possibility of a mix fleets of 160s and 211s on the , that's for sure. And if Jamaica might swap their some 46s with some Coney Island's 160s this later in the year, anything can happen with 211s, especially with fleet expansion. So the possibility of the 211s on the alongside with the R160s isn't that far-fetched. It depends on the in the 2020s if they choose to replaces a handful of 68s with some 211s and order a equivalent number of 68s replacements in the late 2020s. The chances of the 179s going to the seems possible as well but who knows, we'll have to where the decade truly takes it's course.
  12. Fixed, 12 more ten-car sets coming. Total 13 trains. overall fleet total 318 cars..... again.
  13. Aren't there proposal threads for this type of discussion? Just pointing that out there....
