R160B (D) Train Videos and Automated Announcements

Recommended Posts

What's with the whited out R68 sign window?

 

There was no roll sign there, so I'm guessing thats why its whited out.

Great catch. That first announcement was pretty long, I guess that's why the C/R changed it to the second one? Seems to be a lot of interesting catches (even if for the moment) in NYC lately.

R68 2878 has the whited out sign as well. i spotted it on the (Q) this week.

 

 

does this mean the (D) will be getting R160's, or was this a supplement?

a supplement. it needed extra trains due to the R68s' routine maintance and and the fact it was running local. there are no plans to put R160s at the Concourse Yard.

 

I just checked online. One thing to say...

 

R160s are part of the sweet 6 ave express now , baby!

Welcome R160 (D)(E)(R)(E)(K)(T)(R)(A)i(N)!

 

enjoy it while it lasts! please limit your use of smileys

where's your source

 

The (D) is only borrowing a set from Coney Island because the R68s are getting lightly SMSed so don't panic if you see one ON THE WEEKENDS!!! So don't go hunting it during rush hour!

Cool! I hope its Not ONLY to coney island but to 205th st Bx. If I catch it im recording this..

 

And wow SMS on the R68 seems fast. I guess its because the R62As already got there share..

 

Are the ends getting repainted?

 

Nice pic/vid btw!

But I've never seen them white it out when the sign was missing. They just leave it empty.

 

So for real this was a borrowing, and not a diverted (N)? What do they do about people on the line not being qualified? Just swap crews out of place until they find one that is?

We all know the MTA sometimes signs the rerouted (N)'s as (D)'s. So the MP3 announcements are no help. What was a big surprise to me was the Bedford Park Blvd sign in the video.

 

The MTA has done what we all expected would never happen...........

Forget the color of the seats, how about the comfort?!

 

R160 seats, like those of the R142/143, are hideously uncomfortable IMHO. Hopefully this won't be a sign of things to come for the (D).
