R160 9803-9812 in service

Recommended Posts

nice! wikipedia already updated;)

WTF? I thought some poster doesn't allow videos of the new stuff in service because "trains can be pulled from service the day after they enter service". Because we all know how often that happens...>_>

I took that set on the N when it came out about a month ago!

 

Um, this was it's first day in service.

exactly, i just ignore that crap, since i'm the one that usually checks for updates to post on wikipedia anyway. apparently, they don't know how things roll around here.

 

btw, with so many cars arriving and being put into service (30 in the last week or so), i can't help but wonder out loud: any news on the retirements, the've obviously been sending trains to the scrapping lines, but no word on specifics in about a month!:confused:

Wikipedia is always messed up by some fanatics.

No you didn't. A month ago it was at the Kawasaki plant. Maybe you're thinking of the 89xx's but those were here a year and a half ago.

Sorry guys I'm a mess today. That train could've been an R160A or R160B option 2 numbered 98xx.

 

It's an R160B Option II. The R160A order is done. The highest R160 now in service is car no. 9812.

The R160A isn't done. Alstom is going to wrap up the first option order and then will begin on the second option of 232 cars.

Oh, I keep forgetting A is Alstom and B is Kawasaki.

Well the 89xx's are R160B Siemens sets.

 

I remembered Alstom acceleration on my ride so it was probably an R160A. Anyhow, it's like a blur to me now since it was a month ago and I should've taped it.

Alstom traction units are also found on R160Bs as well

I know, but he was referring to the fact that the 98XX R160Bs have Siemens traction units.

Um, no they don't. R160B 98xx have Alstom propulsion.

Like I said guys, I'm a mess today and had been going off with everything someone else states. I'm sorry that I can't remember something a month ago and I apologize if anyone perceived me as foaming.
