The Question

Set of 160s on the early morning Q

Recommended Posts

Has anyone noticed the set of 160s on the morning rush hour Q? Coney Island-bound arrives at 7th Ave, Brooklyn @ about 7:10am. Manhattan-bound through 7th Ave @ 7:50am. Its been consistent since I noticed about three weeks ago.

Some of my co-workers who ride the (Q) are jumping for joy about it. They really like the new ride.

Greetings!

 

I have seen one R160 on the (Q) when they first started testing, but i suspect in the coming weeks they will move the older cars off the (:)(D)(Q) and (F) and put mostly newer cars.

ok so if the c got the r46 , then it would a full 8 car train or would it b shorter like 4 - 6 cars???? and would it eventually get the r179 or 160

 

It would be an full eight car train. As for your other question, as of right now thats still up in the air.

First two parts, right.

 

The second part nope, those will go to jamaica(Queens blvd lines). Since the (G) is getting transfered to CI yard there a SILGHT chance that 160's might run on the (G) line.

I thought Jamaica isn't getting ANY R160s. They can't handle the roof mounted HVAC (even tough they can't really maintain anything else either). Of course, I'm not complaining, R160s on the (E) would be pretty cool. :)

Jamaica is currently getting equipment for roof mounted HAVC...

 

Jamaica is getting ethier the 179's or 160's.
