I said Facebook, not Facebook Group. That being said, a set of photos was JUST posted on TNPV about 5 minutes ago from 181st Street.

The original photo that sparked this latest discussion was taken at West 4 and posted on someone's personal timeline.

No, the R179 5 car set only has to go through burn-in. It is essentially the same train as the current 4 car set.

Actually no, MTA mentioned that there will be a 30 day passenger test for the 10 car train.

The (C) will be running express on CPW in both directions tomorrow due to an G.O so the 179s will really be able to open up speed wise on the N/B run, the 160s were fun to ride on that stretch when had this G.O in the past. Even the S/B run was fun until you hit the timers.

Thanks Tech and Transit for the video post. 

This shows the 10-car set doing the "Simulated Revenue test". This comes before the "30-day Revenue test"(in passenger service) and after the "burn-in test".

More like "what's TNPV? ". It's the "Transport News,  Photography, and Video" group on Facebook.

So basically, 3010-3019 is very close to entering service now that's it's doing simulated stop testing.

The speculation can finally end and this set will finally be ready for service after almost two and a half years of testing. Unless I'm mistaken and it's doing some other kind of testing...

I’m pretty sure it is simulated stop testing. Based on what I observed from the J and C R179 simulated stop testing, it’ll be anywhere from 20 to 35 days before it enters passenger service. To be clear, I observed set 3058-3065 for the J, and 3150-3157 for the C.

Is 3010-3019 testing right now, I’m trying to catch it

I think so. It's also possible that the next 10 car train (3020-3029??) is already built and might be delivered once 3010-3019 enters service.

Yup. I just saw 3010-3019 earlier today :D :D. It was doing burn in testing on the (A) when I saw it at Columbus Circle Today

Is 3190-3197 still doing burn in or is it in passenger service yet?

FYI: Those 8-car R179’s are staying on the (C) til the R211’s roll in. So the (A) and (C) will be the home of the R179’s
