Design the Next Train , Who would make it and What propulsions would it have?

Recommended Posts

R250:

 

*Sticker strip maps as seen on the (1), (3), and (7) attached in windows (pre-R44)

*Exterior side and front rollsigns as seen in Redbirds and R32s (pre-GOH).

*Interior LED sign as seen on NTT fleets.

*Bench seats, arranged like the 75-footers.

*60 footers, 3 doors, pre-NTT propulsion and door chime, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, railfan window (lol), stainless steel.

 

That's all I have... lol.

Some of the things I would like to see in R"onemillion"

 

Smooth/Polished stainless steel body, similar to one found on R44-R68/A

 

Near whisper quiet propulsion, motors and A/Cs

 

Larger front route sign, maybe an LCD to display all colors

 

Dream of a railfan; 2/3rd of a cabin, the rest is a railfan window, which is located where currently the flag and (MTA) (NYCT) logo is. The cabin door slides to the right. :cool:

 

The rest is similar to the current NTTs

I would want an American manufacturer to produce new cars. We would put Americans back to work and our track record for longevity is second-to-none. The only specs I have are R32s still going strong!

R240...the second generation of the R40 Slant. Same 15 degree slant end on the A-ends. The order will come in five-car sets with only the ends of the five cars having the slant, but each car can be uncoupled from one-another, similar to Staten Island's R44s.

 

To operate all over the B-Division, including Staten Island. 60 feet in length for each car.

Sorry for the bump, but this looks interesting, I'll give it a go:

 

R234: 75 foot cars, will replace the R68/A's.

 

Built by Bombardier.

MITRAC Propulsion.

FIND 2 stop information display, which can be remotely altered to display any unplanned G.O.

Same seating arrangement as the R68/A's, for comfort and as a tribute to the cars it's retiring.

Same floor style as the R160, but slightly lighter.

Blue NTT seats.

FIVE doors in B cars, 4 doors in A cars for faster entry/exit and more standing room (since people hang out around car doors)

75.80 ft, to accomodate the new fifth door.

Fluorescent lighting.

Normal windows, which have a thin plexiglas covering to prevent scratching.

Stainless steel body, which has a covering which repels things like spray paint (it will just run down the side of the wall like on the R160's)

 

That's what I have so far...

This thread needs to be pinned to this subforum. These are some really good ideas. An old thread or not, a good one.

Sorry, but the ads are necessary for revenue. Maybe dynamic ads? ;)
