The (Q) train can have a bunch of bums riding on it sometimes, that's why it can be dirty. Great photos though, you did an awesome job.

Just to fill you guys in on something those R160s being used on the (Q) were used on the (W). I think as punishment for being the worst line the (W)'s lost the R160s. Then again I could be wrong lol I still don't understand how the (W) is the worst line lol oh well I never worked it.

Hmmm if your really a Supt for the (Q) what tour are you on cause every R160 I had on it had an issue lol. Not charging, announcements got screwed up, the route strip not working, best equipment ever CED does a fine job at maintain cars that cost $2.2mil each don't ya think? lol

Oh yea they get reported but most dispatchers don't care as long as the wheels on the train roll properly and stops.

R160B's are a bunch on (N)ate, (Q)uicky and (W)indy, trains. I've seen at least 4 R160B's on (Q)uicky, and at least 7 sets on (N)ate.
