Correct me if I was wrong, I believe there were few derailments on the (7) last year, two times in row in a week near 110ish th st.

I thought they were derailing near Willets Pt?

I've been noticing more refurbished R160s on the (R) , not so much this week but last week

More Cuomo cars coming off: 9172 on the outside is a regular 160 without the blue/gold stripes but mated with NY ads 9883-7

How is there not one single trash can at GCT-42 St on the Downtown platform?

So save money paying someone $22/hr including benefits in exchange for paying thousands of dollars in FDNY fees and overtime and benefits and infrastructure repair due to track fires.

Seems logical if you don’t understand logic.

I love how the (MTA) is finally doing deep cleanings to a lot of their newer cars. I really notice the difference especially with the R142’s and the converted R188’s. Hopefully the R143’s get done next, because honestly they look dirty inside and out. I feel like this is something that trains should get at least once a year because I think it’s a matter of image and having them look good. They should continue to clean out the light casings and clean the interior walls too.

Jamaica’s R160s always appear last to get anything. I haven’t seen any of them with the exit mats, yellow poles, or deep cleaned cars, beside the original 100 R160s that were wrapped but none of them have been cleaned. I find it funny how 40+ year old cars ( R46s) got more attention than the much younger R160s.

Jamaica wants to run their cars to the ground as they did with the R32’s... they’re the B division’s Version of Westchester yard. 😂🤣

Yes, Jamaica is. It's not like there are worse performers (like a certain facility in Inwood)...

I dont think the R143's have been washed since 2010 from the looks of it.
