Charleston 0 Posted October 25, 2008 Share #1 Posted October 25, 2008 I think I know on why the "F" train is getting about 5 to 8 car sets of R160 cars. I think is because some of the R160 cars are bumping off the R46 from the "F" train is probably because some of those R46 cars are probably going to the "G" train for it's extension to Church Av so they need to have more cars to extend the "G" train. When this happens, there will be 520 Kawasaki cars and 60 Alstom Cars at CI Yard for a total of 580 cars and with the "N" trains running 23 car sets. the "Q" train running 18 car sets and the "W" train running 11 car sets, most likely the "N" train will get all 230 R160 23 car sets, the "Q" train will get all 180 R160 18 car sets for a total of 410 R160 cars running on both the "N" and "Q" trains. In regards to the "W" train, there will probably be some BUT NOT all R160 cars and some R68/A cars since there will be extra R68/A cars but 25 car sets they are assigned to the "B" train today will have a total of 200 R68/A cars, there will be 130 extra R68 cars left so that is probably why the "W" train will get some of those extra R68/A cars and some of the R160 cars and give the rest of the R160 cars to the "F" train. That is probably the reason on why the "F" train is getting some R160 cars for CI Yard. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
