Bay Ridge Avenue question

Recommended Posts

I use this station daily and still dont understand this phenomenon;

a Manhattan bound (R) train will approach the station.The yellow circle is not visible BUT a red circle is visible above the lights in the same position as a R160,as the train comes closer the red circle disappears and the (R) can be seen.

What in the world is going on?

It's an optical illusion. When the (N) Still had R68s, the same thing happened.

You're looking at a red signal that's south of 77th Street. As the train approaches you, it covers the signal so you can't see it.

I've noticed the same thing, I know what you are talking about. I see some good theories here but we can use some transit worker input to nail this question.
