LIRR M9 Subway cars

Recommended Posts

So no mention of the M9 LIRR cars?

 

Are they coming in 2010 or 2011 before East Side Access is finished?

 

they havent even left the design table yet, much less ordered. more like 2014-2015 if we're lucky. and they'll probably look like the M-7's updated.

The M9's will also have 3rd rail/pant for MNRR, for LIRR just 3rd rail.

 

I doubt they will look much different from the M8 at least on the outside.

First and Foremost, Wikipedia is plagued with false information. I rather get news from a much more reliable source than wikipedia.

 

2nd. the M-9 has not even been set in stone yet. Its still speculation.

The only thing I care about for the M9 is they get the seating right and making them as wide as the M1/3 seats and not have the seats face each other, but away. Also they should have the ada bathroom at the end of the car than towards the middle. Those stuff are what I hate about the M7.

I don't mind a ride on the M7 so long as I have a 2-seater to myself or only one other person sits on a 3-seater. But when someone sits with me on a 2-seater, the ride is totally unbareable.
