IRT train on the IND?

Recommended Posts

What's wrong with this picture?

Yes, I know, this was a long time ago, but how did these ramps work? And I think it looks like that this train is IN SERVICE.........

 

And another thing....what's with the R160A-2 8653-8657:

 

Credit goes to maker of this video. (Not mine.)

The train could have been on display at that station as its was a brand new train with new tech, I don't see the point of running the 110A in service on a B div route.

That 110 was on display for the public viewing. Its also on the express track at Union Turnpike and has no effect on (E) or (F) train service.

 

I don't understand the video? I don't see anything unusual.

I remember as a kid seeing that exact train for my first time on that very station on Union Turnpike. So yeah nothing special just a 110A on display. The removable ramps on the doorways are not part of the train as it may seem in the picture. It just seems that way.

 

Trust me.

Wouldn't that affect the (E) express service?

 

Not if they did it on a weekend, it looks like a train is layed up on the other express track with the lights off in the photo.

When was that picture taken? I must have been too young to see it, but man I wish I saw that in person!

 

I don't understand the problem with (E) train service this would have caused-they clearly would have just moved all trains to the local track. Who cares?

That pic was taken prior to both that, and the R110A, entering revenue service. They had both sets, 110A and 110B on public display at a few train stations and the transit museum around '92. I went to the one they had at 34th St on the express tracks of the bway line (no express service during most of the 80s and some 90s due to Manhattan bridge reconstruction).

It also looks like a R32 sittin over there on the express tracks, remember there's no express service on weekends north of CTL then, or now.

The video of the (N), possibly that part of the line goes on a downhill slope? I dont remember any downhill parts on Sea Beach, then again it could be an operator that really knows how to drive a train (there are a few around).

On the Siemens 160, you can be over 45 entering New Utrecht going south. Safe to say unless its dry out, you won't make the stop.

Of course there's few around. You don't drive a train.

The (E) would just run local. After all, the (E) often stops at the local track during morning/afternoon off peak hours.

Hasn't anyone ever seen a 7 train on the D or N line going to Coney Island yard?

 

 

Many years ago, I saw five (7) redbirds at the BMT track at Queensboro Plaza.

 

About 2 or 3 months ago, I came back from a Mets game, and I saw a work train on the BMT line that switched to the Flushing line.

A couple of times I've seen R62 (7) trains on the 4th Avenue line at night after rush hour when I was living in Brooklyn.
