New R160 Testing

Recommended Posts

Nice pics! 9487 was delivered a while ago, up to 9492 should be here by now, possibly even more. Alstom has 100 cars to go for option I.

I've seen R160s on the Rockaway Park Shuttle, but not yet on the A train. Anyone know why? Is it simply that not enough cars have been delivered/assigned to the appropriate yard (207St/Pitkin) yet?

R160s have never ran on the (S) in service. They could be just testing out on the Rockaways since they do that often.

new cars after being linked are sent to Pitkin for testing on the broad channel flats. testing takes place on the test track between the N channel bridge and Broad Channel staion on weekdays usually between 10am and 3 pm
