R44 SIRTs

Recommended Posts

What do they have in place of the signs?

 

Nothing. They're just plain windows. It's been a while since I've seen them in action but that's what I remember.

 

Also, how do the passengers know where they are going without them?

 

There's a place card in the front of the train where the letters would be on the A/B division subways.

Ive ridden SIR trains recently. There are no side signs. the front scroll signs on their R44's have the destination on them where NYCT's route signs are. N/B's have St. George, St. George Express or Ballpark and S/B's have Tottenville, Tottenville Express or Great Kills. At St. George, at each entrance to the platforms are signs that display the departing trains destination and operation(express or local). since the N/B end of the train will have St. George displayed. With its limited service patters the need for a side sign is not really nessesary.
