Which is better; R160A/B

Recommended Posts

Personally I think R160A because

-no stupid Siemens proplousion like R160B

-no glitches at HVAC

-doesn't break down

-and cleaner

WHAT ARE YOUR PICKS?

Siemens Propulsion is NOT stupid !

 

And the R160A cars do break down, its happened a few times on the (Z) and on the (M) and (L)

 

It shows that the R160B has more variety.

 

I like both sets equally

 

Plus you posted this in the wrong forum, move this thread please

You're forgetting that not all R160Bs have Siemens propulsion. Half have Alstom. I personally prefer the Siemens over the Alstom. I haven't taken any 160As to my knowledge so I can't really judge.

1. What do you mean no glitches at HVAC? Do you mean the FIND display? Or are you talking about the loud fans?

 

2. All cars break down. ALL of them.

 

3. Cleanliness doesn't depend on the car

Dude the Siemens Propulsion is okay, the Alstom Propulsion is good too. The best are the R160A's they perform better on the (L)(M) and (N). I did see one on the (Q) too in service, but just one. The R160A's and R160B's are the cleanest cars in the NYC Subway today. Both R160A and R160B had malfunctions before.

 

Don't worry about the propulsion, it doesn't make much of a difference, just the sound. I'm not sure if it makes the subway car faster or slower????

I'll take an R160B with Siemens propulsion anyday!

 

But the R160A/Bs are good on my book. Yeah they have problems here and there, but they're not the worse cars ever. I know there are going to be a few that will disagree harshly but oh well, they're just cry babies.

They coupled the Alstom and the Siemens before, they worked out pretty well, accelerated almost equally!

HAHAHAHA! The worst cars ever have to be ones that smell like pee for days, regardless of model.

i actually like the siemens propulsion better than the regular one

 

R160A and non-siemens R160B is basically the same thing aren't they ?

Agreed.

Besides different manufacturers, I think so.
