R188 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

The (6) has some odd cars now. 1916 is the only car with the LEDs and lavender Sticker while the others 1917-1920 have red stickers and no LEDs

That should be fun ;)

 

No RFW fun but it is what it is. It's only the beginning, they still have to re-arrange the rest of the 19xx singles.

 

Also on R188 note, 7511-7520 was seen testing yesterday on the (7).

1901-05 will be converted to a 5-car set, and the remainders between 2041-2155 will be used on the (6) once the conversion is finished

IIRC 1916-1920 is a hodgepodge of Corona, Westchester and 240th all in one set so that should be interesting.

 

Should call that The Train Of Many Yards lol.

I wouldn't say that yet. I heard there's other plans with that consist as well as the other singles.

Ok, so this has gotten weird. I saw 7511-7515 coupled with 7526-7930-7530 testing today. The order of the train was 7515-7511|7530-7930-7526. I saw 7521-7525 in the yard alone in a 5 car set. I did not see 7516-7929-7520 anywhere. Video:

I think 7516-7929-7520 is probably in the Corona facility barn being checked on.

 

We are reaching the finish line on this project. Only just a few more R142As currently serving the (6) are scheduled for conversion I believe, then it's a wrap.

There's still 4-5 sets left at Corona. Rode one earlier

I don't think he meant that the set he caught was the only one remaining in Corona. Edited by S78 via Hylan

that's yesterday on a Sunday. Usually on Weekends, 95% of the trains would be 188 class

7860-7870

I could be wrong but I think 7866-7876 is the testing set not 7860-7870. Could have sworn that I saw 7860-7865 in service two weeks ago.

 

Also one of the converts is testing what I would assume to be CBTC too. Let me just find where I wrote the number...

 

Its 7271-7905-7280.
