Recommended Posts

I took a few photos but this was the best one that I could get of this train:

I was at Jay Street Borough Hall when I saw a R160B Alstom/Siemens Trainset at the Northbound Platform on the F Train's Track. The North Motor was 9032 (featured in this photo, this is a R160B Option 1) and the South Motor was 8838. The entire consist was:

Looks like the (F) might get some!!!! or (D) because I saw a few testing down at 36th Street with (D) markings but they didn't stop. One of the cars were 9038 and it had Siemens propulsions.

Nice catch looks like you cought the mixed astlom/siemens set.

 

@ N trizzy the (F) is not getting 160's just yet. The (Q) will get them first this just an yard move or test train.

Nah, they cancelled the (N) G.O. last minute. The (N) ran normal between 36 St and Stillwell Avenue

Oh cool, the (D) and (F) need the R160 cars, the riders will def. get a smooth ride. Another Siemens Alstom R160B train, on the (F).

I highly doubt seeing 160Bs go to the (D) &/or (F) anytime soon. I can be wrong though....

A train operator on the (N) told me that the (D)(F) and (Q) should use the R160 cars fully two years from now. The R68A's would go mostly to the (D), maybe.

then they need drivers to go on training and they'll need new drivers. i don't believe that the (F) would get R160 since they can not afford to disrupt service. The (D) and (Q) should definetly get it. the (N) doesn't deserve fully. the (R ) and (W) does.

The (R) doesn't deserve R160s. Thoe are MUCH better used on the (E) or (F) since the (R) runs out of Jamaica Yar.d I also highly doubt the (F) using R160s anytime soon (within the next 2 years), and also with the (D), but it's actually possible for the (D).

The (F) is gonna need R160s soon enough, same reason for the (G).

 

The (D) isn't getting any, Concourse loves their R68s very much.

Ummm... (E)(F) and (R) all run out of Jamaica...

IMHO any line with cars near 40 years old or over needs the R160s.

What he meant was, the siemens set was paired with the alstom set

That's my point.

 

Elaborate, then. Just because the (R) runs out of Jamaica it doesn't deserve R160s? Then that would eliminate all lines that run out of Jamaica, i.e. (E)(F)(G)(R)(V), just because they run out of Jamaica. But that's my take on it. If you meant something different, please, explain.

The (R) IMO is probably ok with R160s, BUT they can be MUCH better utilized on the (E) and (F). The (E) runs the oldest cars in the system (maybe shift those cars to the (R), (F) or (V) if it got R160s - this is ALL speculative and will probably not happen), and the (F), along with the (E) is scheduled to get CBTC next decade. Basically, what I mean is that even if the (R) got R160s, they should go to another line out of Jamaica that can much better utilize them. With talk of the (G) going to be transferred to CI, it might get R160s but if it did it would because it urns out of CI.

 

All of the above was speculative.
