(8) Train Coming?

Recommended Posts

The number 70(8) was used for the remaining section of the IRT Third Avenue Elevated in the Bronx back in the 70's though. So it was technically used before.

Actually it was used before that. The R-12's were the first IRT cars to carry route numbers on the roll signs. They arrived in 1948 about a year before the end of the joint operation of the Astoria and Flushing Lines by the IRT and BMT Divisions.

 

The IRT Division assigned Route No 7 to the Flushing Line and Route No 8 to the Astoria Line. The R-12's were placed in service on these lines and the would have carried the No 8.

 

(For the record the BMT Route Numbers were 8 for the Astoria Line and 9 for the Flushing Line. )

The cars on the (3) have new signs that do not have these extra routes on the sign so I doubt (8) will ever be used and the NTTs can't display double digets.

If they ever build the branch off of the Flushing Line to College Point proposed way back when, they could reuse 8 or 9 for that service. Or now that the (7) is getting R142A trains, they can renumber the Flushing express service 8 or 9.

Yes the (8) line is coming, it will be on the West End/Mrytle Avenue lines.

 

This information is credible! A station cleaner told me this. I trust him 110%.

You killed it...

Anyways, lets get back on topic. Its just an extra bullet on R62A rollsigns and there is a buff conductor going around and changing the signs.

 

I have also been seeing alot of <7>'s, (7)'s, (6)'s, and recently one <6> on the signs.

If it existed, how confusing would it be if it shared a station with the (A)?

 

Imagine the 70(8) and the (A) trains.

The pronunciation could be a problem for the hard of hearing I suppose. Though we do have a whole lot of similar-sounding routes already so it shouldn't be that much of a concern. Of course, the (8) isn't going to be revived anytime soon, so this really doesn't mean jack.
