R160 on the L line

Recommended Posts

There are about 6 sets or more during rush hour. Its hard to tell you in exact number because it always changes. ENY trys to push out as many as possible. R160s replaced the wonderfull R42s that ran the L Line during the rush hour to provide extra service.

instead of replacing your beloved R42's they could have kept those R42's and just add some R160's to improve even more service but oh well...

Well the reason why they took the 42s off is because they just wanted NTTs to be on the Larry. They claimed the reason was because the 42s can't do CBTC. What doesn't make sense is that the 160s aren't in CBTC mode so they are just like a 42. Half the 143s on the Larry are not even running in CBTC and are in bypass. CBTC is nothing but problems and a waste of money right now.

Hes starting to see how the MTA doesn't make sense. A lot of people just sware by the NTTs and don't look into the tech aspect of it like I do.

You're telling me you're 16 and you know how the NTTs work?

What does my age have to do with it? I know how cars work too and I work on them. I was doing the same thing at your age too, just not as much.

One year. I was riding an R42 around this time last year.

 

Yup. And those trains stayed in Canarsie Yd through the sumer IIRC, saw sets out there when I made a run out to a food joint.
