R62/R62A Getting new rollsign

Recommended Posts

Oh NO!! Its looks terroriable like that! Even tho it helps people to indenify the route and where its heading aye!! The ones on the R26-36 were much better the this!

 

So is this the only (1) to be on the (1)?

 

Nice Catch!

If this gets through, they will have rollsigns that would show the (1) going to places like New Lots, Utica, Flatbush or whatever godforesaken place the (1) could go to. I think that was the intention, because apparently some riders don't know where the train would go. (Lame excuse, the side rollsigns have a good amount of information)

Why don't they just put the (1) in its own bullet and then put the destination below the bullet, like they did on the R110Bs? That sign looks horrible.

That would require a lot of signs. To me, as long as people look at the side signs, they should be fine. While it MIGHT (if at all) be helpful, the (MTA) should not make this a top priority. And if a train IS rerouted, the side signs also couldn't be changed in time like on the 142/A. One more thought: what about changing the hind rollsign once the TO changes ends? If that isn't changed, people entering the station facing the back of the train would get confused

Besides if its going to be on all routes then that could mean that the Roll SIgn could take up a lot of room in the roll sign cabinet? Besides is it rly only going to be (1)(3)(7)? The (6) may get its R62As back when (7) goes CBTC, and who knows about the (2)(4)(5). Not rly the (9)..

 

Maybe leave the Roll SIgn Route how it is and add the designation on the bottom.

 

@7LineFan Did it rly had it? I thought it was LOCAL | EXPRESS on the bottom? :confused: have a pic?

Who knows, but it does look like a test, given the fact that it is the only car in this train to have it. And it probably will, given a variety of probable destinations. It's a load of bull, the numbers will be small and the destination won't be readable until the train is at most 20 feet away from you.

The (A) on the sign did. I don't have a pic unfortunately.

Problem is that people are just to lazy to read the side sign. Thats why lots of em ask people where this train is going and crap!

Many of the tourists can't readily understand a side rollsign, nor can some of the regulars.

Dear god, why can't NYC just save some ink and plastic? As for the side rollsigns, the R62/A and R68/A should've gotten LCD screens like the post-GOH R44/R46.

I think it looks cool, but now the rollsigns will have to be very long to hold all the commom terminals the a train could use. I think the never should have removed the destination rollsign like they did from the R40 up.

Okay, firstly it looks terrible. Secondly, the (1) doesn't terminate at Chambers street. Thirdly, they would need too many roll signs to use that. Fourthly, nice catch.

Yes It can end at Chambers if there was a G/O at ether SF or alone Brooklyn.

 

I hope the T/A doesnt plan to use former end stations..

I guess I'm in the minority here. I don't completely hate it at all, it's very useful. But I'm not the rollsign's greatest fan either. This will HELP on (3) G.O.s that during the weekday midday, end at Utica Avenue. They never change the signs in time on the R62s. Let's see where this goes. I'm holding complete judgment until I see some more.
