Question about the front of R143's

Recommended Posts

Why do some R143's have indents, like R160's and some don't and what are their purpose?

Thnx

 

 

You mean where the lights are? Hm, I do remember there being a thread or something talking about how they arrived without indents, and now they have them, or something like that.

If I recall correctly, crews were getting hurt slipping off the anti-climber while climbing onto the train so those indents were created to allow better footing to get on.

Those foot hole indents were added. It does indeed make it easier and safer for crews. Not all of them have been retrofitted. They came standard on the 160s
