R160 making its debut on the F train on October 27th?

Recommended Posts

So, will the R160 finally be making it's debut on the F train this Monday, October 27th and if they do make it's debut, are they going to use the 60Alstom cars (I believe 8653-8712).

 

Please post up any confirmation you might have concerning this matter.

Not sure where you heard that from. While R160's are being tested on the (F), it seems like the crews need to be fully trained and enough of the R160's have to arrive and be burn tested and the like. I bet they will appear rather soon but I honestly doubt they will be implemented by October 27th. Most likely we would be looking at sometime in 2009. Late 2008 could be a vague possibly but very doubtful in my opinion.

Guys, whenever Charleston makes a thread you're not supposed to take anything in that thread seirously. Many people in this board and subchat (including me) always lie to him since he almost never posts back in the same thread again and he asks the same questions...

Yes the R160's have been testing for a while. You can take a sneak peek around the Jamaica Yards to see it. Possibly soon (my feeling) but unconfirmed, it'll start service on the Queens Blvd. Line...

They will start on the (F) early next year and on the (E) in the middle of next year.

My prediction is, AT THE EARLIEST: Sometime between Mid-January 2009-February 2009 for the (F). (E), around April-May 2009.

I think the R160 will strat to run on the (E)/(F)/®/(V) in may 2009 or in june 2009.

 

I believe the debut will take place earlier.

When this happens, R will be fully R46s.

The latest Info on R 160's I got 3 Wks ago. The (E)(F) will be getting them to replace the R32's starting Late Dec or Early Jan. The (F) just about everyone is Quilifed who works the Line now and new they training the(E) Line personal. The R42's will be sticking around for a while on the (E) and (R) Lines but they will try to taken them off the road ASAP when on the (R) Line.
