R68/R68A on the (F)

Recommended Posts

Same here. The R68/68A's are not meant to be on the (F) Although the R68's the run on the (D) are old and dirty sometimes.

Keep the R46s on the (F), but will someone please retrain the Jamaica Yard crews how to properly maintain a fleet. Also, I think when the R68/a were first delivered, they were tested along the Culver line.

R68A they might have tested on Culver but the R68 never left the Brighton Line for testing. R68A tested on Brighton also. And West End. I think.................

Egh they all look the same to me. I never follow car numbers and motor sounds and what not to tell apart cars of the same class.

Nope, dont bring the R68/A's to a line in which the yard is Jamaica yard. No need to have Jamaica yards poor maintenence skills mess up the R68/A's.

They're actually really easy to tell apart once you know what to look for.

R-68: 2000 series numbers, swing-open cab doors, circle around fault lights

R-68A: 5000 series numbers, sliding cab-doors, fault lights w/o circle

 

There's probably even more that I'm not aware of. But if you want to find out more about crazy stuff like R-142S's and the like ... don't call me. :D

I have indeed ridden on an R68 (F) train (yes, the train had all the proper signs), but that was something like 18 years ago and it was only once.

They did run the R68 on the F line for a short period of time. Way back, shortly after the R68 came out.
