I labeled this quiz "Hard" for a reason. I didn't expect many people to score high on this quiz and if they did it was from some very lucky guesses. Most of the questions came from books and a few from some articles available on the internet.

Sounds like Physics class in a nutshell.

I got 40%. Kinda surprised.

 

 

Nice try Rick.

 

So far only one person with a passing grade. I guess it was a little harder than I even thought.

30% I only knew the ones I got right and the others I guessed, go figure I knew I failed.

Got an 80% on the quiz.

 

..... Now looking at the results on the ones I got wrong and I still can't figure it out! Definitely a very difficult test.

Wait a minute, somethings up with one of the questions , the one of the Staten Island Railway, the real answer isnt there, the lines that were eliminated were the North Shore and South Beach lines, isnt it? Cuz, none of the options say that.

I agree... I've checked a couple of different resources on this one and it should have been the North Shore and the South Beach, which wasn't an option on the quiz.

 

Otherwise, a nice test - I was foiled by answering the automated train question too quickly. Clicked on the GCT/TS Shuttle and never looked back. Sucker...

You know your right, I got that question wrong too because I thought it was the North Shore/South Shore branches too on the SIR question but no selection for it. No biggie it ain't that serious, it was an entertaing test. If only I got that question right I could have got a 90% instead of an 80%. But the 80 is good enough so I'll just cut my lossed and take the 80%.

 

I think Harry could be right, definitely right on the money with the available choices. The right answer he's looking for can be in an old school book that is not available on the net and we all just happen to miss it. That curveball of a hard question he threw at us . Like I was saying his test was stupid hard to me. I can only imagine how the train operator test he set up must be like. Even harder.

 

I'm gonna take that one too. I just need to read up more leisurely on the dynamics of the powerhouse of some of these trains and the science of correct T/O operation, in my spare time.
