Repost from Official NYCS Speed Thread: SIR Express Hits 60 MPH Back in '11

Recommended Posts

I didn't even know this was a common occurance. I would have thought this would have been captured on camera more often. Enjoy lol, and as the first line goes, WHAT THE FAQQQ?!?!?!?!

I remember early this year I hit at and around 55MPH on the SIROTA. Not bad.

Doesn't the LIRR do around 60 mph in the tunnel?

 

I don't remember the speed restriction in the East River Tubes, but I feel like it's closer to 50 than not. Anyhow, M7's are designed to go up to 100 mph, so 60 isn't really a feat for those cars.

That video was too good to be true, and funny too ROTFLMMFAORL! Imagine seeing the (A) Train hit 55-60 mph. between the Rockaways (Beach 90th or 67th Sts and Howard Beach-JFK Airport) with an R-32 or R-160A2/R-160B (Alstom) both retro-fitted with modifications and stuff from the SIR.

:D Me Likey!
