R160B W train running along the R to Bay Ridge

Recommended Posts

Saw something new today...After waiting about 10 mintues at 23rd St/Broadway station around 530pm a (W) train came in and was going to continue along the (R) to Brooklyn. It was an R160B and even the FIND was set with all the stops along the (R) after Whitehall St. The outside display read:

W Bay Ridge - 95th Street via Whitehall

Astoria LCL

Broadway LCL

I only rode one stop to Union Square but didn't get a chance to snap a shot, I know it's a rarity. Must've been a problem with the (R) coming from Queens because I saw them on the uptown side

(W) service had been suspended in both directions earlier in the afternoon, because of signal problems at 59 St–Lex. At least according to the station announcements. I don't know if that had anything to do with this reroute. It's fairly rare, but I have taken (W)s to 95 St a few times when slants still ruled the line. Most south destination rollsigns were still set to Whitehall St. Glad to hear FIND have everything correct.
