I need your opinion on multiple questions.


Recommended Posts

Here are a couple of questions.

 

1. Why should the (S) become the (H) again. (Note I know there is a thread about this but I ask why)

 

2. I know it's just summer but should the (A) run R32's Permanently until Retirement, should the (C) keep running R46's, should the Rockaway Shuttle keep running R32's.

 

3. What stations should be ReOpened or closed.

 

4. What stations really need construction.

 

5. Should there be new Subway lines/Numbers/letters.

 

6. What subway line in NYC Really needs a Makeover.

6. What subway line in NYC Really needs a Makeover.

 

(1) since its a shuttle it should remain (S), if anything the blue (S).

 

(2) the (C) should get some 46s since it can get quite packed in manhattan. The (A) should get 46s but the 32s might not be a good idea in winter where the cold weather could mess them up. The Rockaway (S) should remain with its 4 car 46s.

 

(3) they should reopen Republic and Grumman stations on the LIRR ronkonkoma branch to take the busyness away from Bethpage and Farmingdale stations.

 

(4) They need to fix Chambers St

 

(5) No, theres no need for any more.

 

(6) The (C) needs a makeover, it uses the worn out 32s.

The (C) uses the R32s because that's the only place left those trains can run on as the (C) is an 18/7 line. The other option would be the (;), but CI yard probably doesn't want to deal with another train type.

 

The MTA needs to get their act together on ordering the R179s already.

They are millions in the red, I doubt they can afford them at the moment. the trains still run fine and they have quite a number of them. If they were all on the (A), then that would be a problem as that is a more demanding line.

 

Not according to some members here on this site...

Like I said somewhere in another thread, I don't use the (C) so I can't speak on terms of personal experience, just based on some of the more knowledgeable members of this site.

 

As for sending the R32s to Jamaica and the (V) line, it's probably a good thing the line doesn't exist anymore. If the line was still around, we'd be talking about a car shortage, rather than the craptastic cars we're stuck with for the next few years since said (V)'s cars are now on the (A) line.

I have to agree with you on that the (B) has been running old cars since the 80's.

I like the R32's but I hate the R42's they are just cheap straight Knock-Offs of the R40 and Don't get me started on the R40M.

Please note that train yards have to be equipped with train parts, supplies and knowledge-able workers to handle the various types of trains that they are assigned to them.

 

So the idea of placing all R-32's in one location with trained repair workers, supplies and parts is really not such a bad idea. Which of course leads to the idea that whatever train line is serviced by that train yard will get those cars.

 

According to Joe Korner's website, all of the R-32's are assigned to the C line, meaning that the train yards and their personnel that the C-line uses are equipped to handle those trains. Moving the train types around also means moving or changing the train yard personnel, train parts and supplies, and other equipment. For what reason?

 

Just a note.

1.It really doesn't make a difference if you are asking b\c the R-32's running on the Rock Pk Shuttle had (H) is b\c there is no (S) for Rock Pk its just (H) Rockaway Pk Shuttle.

 

2.In my opinion HELL No.The 32's should go somewhere else I wish they swap Coney Island R-68/A's for 207th R-32's!= R-68 (C) and possibly (A) and R-32 (B) possibly (Q) and (N).

Why doesn't MTA let the (A) and (C) Run R68/A the MTA has had 75 foot cars on those lines for 30 Years the (B)(N) and (Q) are losing them the only lines with them are the (D) and (G) and the G only runs 4 car Sets so there are a number of R68/A's sitting I. Coney Island and Concourse Yards what they do with them is they're idea but my idea is give some to the A and C.

Also, you hunt for ugliest subway station (everything from dirty, stinky section) and take picture (if you have camera) and sent to Greg Mocker, who does PIX11's Ugliest Subway Contest. He also approves LIRR/MNRR/NJT/PATH Stations as well.

Ever heard the term spare ratio?cause that's what some of those R68/A cars sitting in CI and Concourse are,spares just incase a train has any problems.why give them to the (A) or (C) when the (B) and (G) lines need them.

Ok but still why doesn't the (A) run any.

There's no need for the (A) to get R68s because 1) those are Coney Island/Concourse cars and 2) Pitkin and 207th Street have plenty of spares of their own without having to borrow from other yards.
