Smile! Subway to snap your pic


LRG

Recommended Posts

The MTA is on track to create a subway ring of steel.

 

In an unprecedented security move, transit officials are ordering up 340 new subway cars that will come equipped for surveillance cameras, The Post has learned.

 

Instead of tearing up old subway cars and installing the wiring and hardware needed for security cameras -- a costly process -- the new cars will already have the technology built in, NYC Transit officials said.

 

The MTA will just have to pop in the cameras, and the cars will be ready to roll with their new surveillance equipment.

It says it in the article

 

"The new cars, known as R179s, would replace aging cars currently used on the A line."

 

Good. The (A) and the (C) will finally receive the attention they deserve. I like the R32s but the (A) and (C) does need an upgrade. It kinda does kill me seeing all the other lines with newer equipment.

READ the complete article, it says that it costs less to have the surveillance hardware built-in than having it done in-house.

In that case I suggest that we wait, but this is the game plan as of now.

It has nothing to do with railfans and more to do with safety and security on the trains (or so they say). There are several videos of the set on the (E) with the cameras on YouTube.

Cameras are there to deter criminals, but the truth is it's only there to record things after they've already happened. There are kinds of people that cameras don't stop: terrorists who are willing to give up their lives; and people are are just too enraged to care about the consequences.

If these cameras are going on the R179 then the Fulton St Line is a great choice to have surveillance...I wonder if the cameras are going in the same place as the set on the (E)
