R160B on (Q)

Recommended Posts

R160B on (Q).

 

The (Q) will finally get R160B service full time. July 18, 2008, will be the start date that the R160B trains will run on the (Q). This is not a test train news, R160B's will run full time on the (Q) and will join the R68 and R68A cars as the (Q)'s fleet. Some R68 cars have also appeared in large numbers on the (:D as well.

 

I just saw a (Q) train of R160B cars numbered 8848-8849-8850-8851-8852-8953-8954-8955-8956-8957

:D

 

The R68 and R68A cars will not be displaced by the R160B cars appearing on the (Q) anytime soon. About two sets of R160B trains will appear on the (Q) full time.

where did you learn this. and plus we have two threads about this. one made by me and someone else. and they will not ahve full time until next year cause then you take a lot away from the (N) and there are only 320 cards right now. i won't believe this. but i hav seen the same set. they might have pput-ins during PM rush hours.

Go ride the (Q) and you'll see and R160B train on it. Not an error, or a mistaken (N) or (W), it's on the (Q) officially. I'm really sure R160B's are running on the (Q). :D If not, then I'm sorry for the misinformation :D

You dont think these crews Know that people Look out for anything "unusal" when it comes to Car Classes??

 

They are very well aware of it....

Or that night...

Why would programmers set up an R160B on the Brighton line as (Q) if it was initially an (N) train? I know that confusion is to be avoided. The (Q) was supposed to be given R160B cars by this month or in the fall. I've seen R160B trains on the (:rolleyes: and (Q) as test trains, but I've never thought to see the (Q) R160B in revenue service.

 

So that R160B train set was supposed to be an (N)? WOW, I am confused? :confused:

Becareful what you say around here.

 

First, you didn't put up any proff.

 

Second, made a mistake saying that word "official" a day before something is suppose to happen. Hell, we would've heard it from an inside long by now.

 

Third, the train signed as a (Q) to avoid confusion down the line as like they did once before last December.

I think what RTOMan was trying to sayto you is that by signing that train as a (Q)uincy you avoid the problems with leaving it signed up as a (N)ovember...like geese banging down the train crew's windows to ask them either if the train is lost or if they have the wrong sign up, or if the train is REALLY going to make stops along the Brighton (which of course it's physically impossible NOT to but you'd be surprised by the way some people treat rerouted trains...)

Ya'know, If the (N) is ever re-routed over Queens Blvd, that'll be the day. An R160B (If Possible) (R) Train! That's something I'd look forward to.

I still have yet to see a single R160 on the (Q).

Thats because there aren't any yet. The only ones that have shown up are rerouted (N)s that were signed as an (Q) for at least the Brighton portion of the line.

The Media has said it over and over again, the (Q) is to get R160B cars before the (W) and the (W) gets them after the (N) and (Q) riders are forced to play the waiting game for those cars. I don't like broken promises:mad:, especially when the media and the news hype this stuff up.

 

The Media got this wrong big time. (Q) has no R160B yet. the Daily News, Post, Times said that the (N) and (Q) were supposed to get R160B's as back as October of Last year.

 

Well, the R68 and R68A are doing great on (Q), I can wait a bit longer.
