Ok, so maybe those aren't on the (A), so maybe those are signed an (A), so maybe I was in Grand Central today, so maybe I stopped by the Transit Museum today.

 

Those models look great! I wouldn't mind buying that set from the MTA.

Nice catch.

 

I think its interesting that they have returned to the corrugated roof panel. Must be good for aerodynamics.

I saw that model a little while back in the GCT transit "museum." I went a little out of my way to check it out. I just have to wish it actually worked and they had it running around a track.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

 

They don't work properly in the rockaways because of the power systems out there being funky. As soon as they fix that they will move onto the (A)(C)(E), but i don't see them on there till after much of the older cars especially the R32 are retired.

They'll show up on the (E) alot sooner than the (A)/© sees NTTs.

It can't be because LIPA supplies the power down in Rockaway, I mean, 600V on the third rail is 600V...right? How do NTT's know which station is which? I'm assuming some sort of signal sent through the running rails? Or small transponders between the rails?

It can tell by the number of wheel turns, from what I know.

That explains why the display in the cab has the number of feet till the next station displayed. I don't understand how the computer just fails to work out in Rockaway then...
