You both knew that’s what he meant , he just didn’t know the right wording for it , ya feening

There’s two replies regarding this specific post, and I’ve hidden other replies to it as well - including yours. 

Now would be the time to take the L and move onto another topic.

Oh, and “feening” - just so you know - means desiring something like a drug, food, physical contact, etc:

The chances of the Rockaway Park (S) huttle running full length on weekends in the next month from Memorial Day to Labor Day may be at zero.

The Rockaways just don't like the subway. The Beach Channel and Far Rockaway side is upfront about wanting the Q52, Q113/114 to get on dry land while the Rockaway Beach and Nesponsit/Rockaway Park side wants the Q53 for Queens and Q35 for Brooklyn. The (A) is more for people on the Arverne by the Sea, Far Rockaway by St Johns/Cornaga, and Long Beach Residents who want the subway. 

I am saying this because the MTA really wants to make the Q22 more like the n33 (Queens-Nassau local) or the n69 (The Seaside Community Line). 

It doesn't help that the n31/32 is used more by Queens Residents living Far Rockaway and Lawrence/Inwood more so than the Q113. I am still surprised to see Far Rockaway Residents wait 20-40 minutes for the Q22 to B.116th to get into service post Sandy Rebuilding. They just went from waiting for the bus to show up at B.21 by the terminal to waiting for that same bus to show up at B.20 and Cornaga with the 22 being way behind schedule. The (A) is the only thing in the Rockaways that seem to run just fine.

I'm gonna give him the benefit of the doubt & say that he meant (those that are doing) picked jobs....

The riding public in this city doesn't take much pride in our transit system.... MTA brass is rather archaic & slow-to-act with the way it goes about running things & on top of it, the riding public isn't prioritized....

Not going to get much classiness out of that :(

Shit rolls downhill, and have you seen the top? Albany's the biggest shithole there is in terms of "bad management".

Different governors, same shit, stretching back at least as far as Cuomo Sr.

Okay, what I'm trying to say is, say you picked a job to be a T/O (or Motorman) on the (E) line for example. Since were in the middle of a pandemic, crew shortages have become more of a regular occurrence from what I've been hearing. So, T/O / M/M finishes a run on the (E) and dispatch says there's a crew shortage on lets say.... the (Q). Would somebody, who picked to work on the (E) be sent onto the (Q) to cover in for an emergency crew shortage

Get what I'm trying to say now?

No, I've seen (E) and (F) crews get off at Jamaica on 179th Street or Parsons Archer after they finish their run with the intent of going home. Considering both lines have homeless people sleeping on subway cars, I don't blame them. In the (E)'s case, the MTA really wants to keep it as the Jamaica at Hillside and Parsons Local/Express to Lower Manhattan. 

I forgot they got rid of the R-32s in March, the one subway car that can pretty much run from Jamaica to Lower Manhattan without any trouble. Those new Subway cars made it too easy for the homeless to sleep in.

Anyone know the back story behind this R44 apparently having a large R40/42 rollsign displaying M?

Perhaps a prototype sign from 1971?  The location also looks unfamiliar- the car plant in St. Louis, MO possibly?

Is that what that sign even is? Kind of hard to make out. Could it just be the lights/or some covering? Rollsign at the far left looks stock R44 to me.

That's a M rollsign. You can see the white V in the middle and the two vertical lines at the sides.

The biggest problem with New York is that all the "Good" Mayors tend to work better under an economic crisis and pull out all the stops to keep the city running.

Cuomo Jr. is a bad governor in the sense that he has an economic crisis that threatens the city's future and Deblasio is useless.

Lindsay would've have a plan ready for Covid-19 while figuring out what to do for after the shutdown.

Cuomo's flaws are becoming more apparent with each conference where he's too reliant on Trump to get him out of the shutdown. He pretty much alienated the people who would be of use to the MTA like Byford, and Lhota, and Helena Williams. They're not coming back to rescue the MTA for a crisis it created.

While passing by the (Q) line for groceries, nice to see that there's 68s on the line. Along with the 46s and 160s. There's a 3 choice mixture along with the (N) .

From all the current subway lines running weekend hours, the (7) and (L) has reduced most of their trains with the 10 min headways on weekdays, weekends for the (L)20 mins.

I am glad that Far Rockaway (A) is Express and Lefferts Blvd (A) is Local.

Because of no (C) service.

 

It makes sense in a way. The trains to/from Ozone Park have shorter trips (mileage-wise).

The (G) at this time will be how the ((M) ,old (brownM)) was in measurement

- On weekdays, the Crosstown line is a full 8-75 ft car trains with the C/R and on weekends: is a regular 4 car train.

Yes I agree and because the (A) Line need Express Trains and Local Trains during normal hours in between 6:00am and 11:00pm. Because of no (C) service that means now they have Far Rockaway (A) Trains running Express and Lefferts Blvd (A)Trains running Local both directions in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Because I first thought they was going to have all (A) Trains running Local all day with no Express service.

Last night I had an dream that I rode an pre GOH R42 on the (J) which is odd as I never been on an pre GOH R42. 

 

It was 4 cars long and accelerating faster than the post GOH R42 did, I said to myself in the dream, these cars still have field shunting! I got off at Broadway Junction and tried to take a video on my phone of the train but it left before I could open the video app.

 

I stay having dreams about retired transit vehicles that they are still in service in current day, and when I wake up, I'm bummed that these transit vehicles are retired😟

That pre GOH R42 must’ve been camera shy then.

They were running all (A) trains local.  I think they made the change to half local and half express because they've been able to increase service in recent days, so there's enough trains to have both local and express service, and maintain acceptable headways at local station.  Trains are running every 20 minutes both local to Lefferts and express to Far Rockaway, so on average that's service every 10 minutes at express stations and every 20 minutes at local stations.  Previously they were only running trains every 20 minutes total, so they had to go all local or else there would be 40 minute gaps at local stations.  There already were at stations out past Rockaway Boulevard.

Hopefully they can get the (C) running again soon, but they'll probably still be running Lefferts (A) trains local for a while, just as they did before the (C) was suspended.

Anyone noticed that Londons Underground trains propulsions shut off when going over third rail gaps? Why does that happen there but not here? Sounds pretty cool when it picks back up.

Yes many trains are starting to run much better headway’s.  Subway time shows the (7) running about every 6-8 min or so this morning  also the (J) Is every 10 min . I think this pandemic will end much quicker then people think . At least the worst of it .
