Question about this weekend's D Train G.O

Recommended Posts

Guest MTA Bus

This weekend, the (D) will run it two sections. One section is between Norwood - 205 St and 34 St - Hearld Square. The Other Section is between Atlantic Av - Pacific St and Coney Island - Stillwell Av. My question is that since the Brooklyn part of the (D) will not have access to Concourse Yard, will there be a set of R160s from Coney Island Yard on the Brooklyn part ? Or, will it be R68As ?

Possibly, l caught it last time the G.O happened back in summer of 2010 in my video you have posted, there was 1 set of R160 on there, the rest of the fleet was CIY R68 and a few CCY R68, we'll see what happens this time.

There should be more than enough D line assigned cars that wind up in Brooklyn to cover servcie requirements between Coney Island and Pacific St. I would think about 6 or 7 trainsets max.

Eh.. There is a "chance" but I don't think so. They "could" use the layups from the rush hour service if they need any extra trains.

That, or they might use a borrowed set from the (B) like last time
