R68 (Q) oh yeah!

Recommended Posts

An R68  (N) became a  (Q) for the p.m rush last Friday. Shout out to Daniel The Cool who was with me on this day and Brighton Local who was operating the R68  (Q).

The R68  (N) terminated at 57 St and laid up on the southbound express track at 49 St. Which I had a feeling it would become a  (Q) in the p.m rush.

When I went to 49 St, my prediction was right.

Great catch! How do you like operating the R68/As?

Love the 68s. I despise the 68As.

What do you hate about it? Some motormen here voiced their dislike of the brake application delay - was that the main issue for you, or were there other pet peeves you had with that equipment?

Pansy.  :P

 

What is different inside the cab?

Different braking package. The term "No 2 trains brake alike" definitely ring true on the R68As. They are a beast that can be tamed.
