Question about the R68

Recommended Posts

On some R68's at the front end, underneath the letter designation, there appears to be another slot for some sort of display.

 

Compare this photo (notice under the (Q) sign)...

 

...with this one (no secondary display).

 

Any idea what those displays were for?

You're right as it does seem as if there's extra space, but I think that's just the way the rollsigns were installed.

 

Too bad the car numbers aren't seen, because the two different fleets (R68 and R68A) have different specs, both mechanically and aesthetically.

It may have been intended for a run number display like the R110B and buses have but there is nothing there. No empty sign, nothing.

I don't think it's just a distinction between R68 and R68A; I've noticed the extra space (and lack thereof) on various (D) trains which utilize the same fleet.

 

Okay, probably the way how they were installed then.

Not a problem, I did see a drawing of the R68/As (I can't tell the difference) and it should this, but they were never installed.
