I was at Coney Island today and saw a set of Slant in service. I rode it 'til 14th St-Union Sq. The set was 4402 (lead car). I was like, what is this about?

 

AWSOME! Did you get a pic?

I can't ride it any time soon, I live in Philadelphia, and I still have to go to school, the next time I have free time is Winter break, and I doubt if my mom would let me go to new york. That is an awesome train though, I wish SEPTA would have gotten one like that!!! but they would much rather having almost 200 Kawaski's on the Broad Street Line and Broad RIdge Spur (BSL & BRS)

This thing is like 39 years old......

We have Kawaski R68A, and then like a thousand more NTT Kwasaki. R40 Slant is like the best and fastest train ever.

I agree but SEPTA is made up of consistant buses and Trains,

Most of Our buses are New Flyers

Most Of Our Trains/Trolleys are Kawasaki

The only Diverse fleet is our Regional Rail Cars

The best trains EVER!

 

 

best train ever but the Mad R40s are going byebye :(

 

 

Also Its sometimes called R40S, R40SLOPE or R40SLANT for the newbies

 

I wonder if the T/A can remove the slope part and replace with str8, that ways its an R40M, and can live longer possibly

Since they are based out of coney island they can run on (:((D)(F)(V)(N)(Q)(R)(W). Other lines require long OOS runs for switching that can only take place at certain areas.

I will be visiting New York next week, on business and I have a coiple of days to myself. Will the slants be on the (:) line then? When is the best time to get them? During peak hours or weekends? Which location is the best to wait for them at?

I know this, but all you need to do is let one train empty of passengers and change the rollsign and let passengers on and go through 1 or 2 switches. Other lines you actually have to do it from the yard OOS through the switch to the other yard.
