Last I heard, Alstom is swamped so bad that they are two month behind with the R-160A-1's. Ill be a while before A-2's will be on the property. I think for every 4 sets of A-1's, 1 A-2 is delivered. It's kinda complicated. You think for all that money and time. But don't forget, the shells are being manufactured in Sao Palo.

So far alstom is only delivering A-1s there are only ten R160A-2s on (NYCT) property. The A-2 cars will start coming in once all of the A-1 cars are in. Btw those ten A-2 cars run on the (N). And once the other A-2 cars get here they will go to queens blvd for CBTC....

All these car numbers are the 5 car Units for the R160A...

 

The numbers in Bold are already in service and on property..

 

CBTC for Queens Blvd will take a few years, these coming in wont...

 

Look for the (W)iskey to have R160's soon...

 

I have heard that they run a R160 (W)iskey for Rush hour Service in the AM's..

I knew the order wasn't finished!! The yards can't hold all those trains anyway.

 

Sigh....

 

The orginal order is done i already said that. And most of the R160s are already at CI yard as high as 8967....

Oh so those alstom ten car sets will go to CI yard. How soon will those R160s start hitting the (W)?

 

I hear by the end of May.

Well, on Wednesday, I think there were problems coordinating trains on the Astoria terminal. They had to run a R160 (W) to Whitehall. The conductor was really confused...and then had to do everything manually. There was no (W) bullet in the front either. I think training is still necessary if you want the Astoria line to be entirely R160.

Well, more than half of the (N) Line is R160, So it shouldn't be that hard.
