What's Different About This Car?

Recommended Posts

What makes this R62A on the (3) so special? Look at it...

I noticed it today...I had no idea they were doing it. Am I slow, or is this a regular thing?

Those aren't bucket seats. Those are bench seats, installed in response to the negative attitudes towards the bucket seating. Only 4 R62's have them, however, and there are no plans to retrofit any existing cars with them as those are actually factory-installed.

The problem with the R-62 & 62A bucket seats is that they're way too small for the average New Yorker's keister. You could have five bucket seats on a given R-62, by the time four people sit, there might only be a couple of inches in that fifth seat. This isn't as much of a problem on the 75 footers.

That's the problem...too many fatties. They take up more than their share on a crowded rush hour train, they should have to pay more :(

 

Bucket seats for life.

 

Not to mention they prevent bums from lying down across the benches, becaues no one likes having the seat ridges dug into their back

I can see why the T/A is no longer reallying on the bucket based, becuz of the size of a human waste lol, and damn its so unclofertable on the 44-62As, aye i have to close my damn legs, good bless:

I prefer bench over bucket, since I don't have to deal with sharing a seat with someone else.

 

DOAB: a lot of people are going to take advantage of that 2 for $3 triple cheeseburger deal at McDs!

 

Subway Guy: I remember an old post about having a special turnstyle for extra wide people!

Damn, fatties, I love bucket seats, especially on B division trains, they are wider, and you can't slide anywhere, but you can't lie down, which I do alot :(

I know, I like bucket seats better...gives me my own little nugget of space. But I always end up stuck next to the person who had one too many cheeseburgers.

 

My idea of the perfect train ride on anything Division B is getting on the R44 or R46...and getting one of those nice little seats in the corner all to myself, where I can look out the window.

I say we make the turnstiles a bit narrower. Too fat to get on the subway? Take the bus. Can't take the bus? Walk.

hey fat people got a choice you know, it's not something you're "born with" in most cases (some people have gland issues or can't eat certain foods and it can make them that way), the vast majority have a choice but rather than going to do something else, they choose to eat more. Then they want everyone to cow tow to them and give them what they want because they made that choice. I'm not buyin that. It's not like being ugly or not being able to tan, you're born with that and you have no choice...fat or not you do.

 

so no apologies for being direct on my end :P

I agree, for some it is a genetic thing, but it's rare, I would never like that kind of lifestyle, it's really hard to live like that..

IMO there should be bike racks outside every subway station to promote biking to the station instead of taking the car, even the bus if you want.

That's why I like you. You do just like I do, and tell it like it is, no matter who it hurts. I can attest to the fat issue, since I have been on both sides of the deep fried spectrum. Even those with genetic fatness, they don't have to end up looking like the Graf Zeppelin. Walking and exercise, is just like reading. It's fundamental........

 

aye i have to close my damn legs, good bless:

 

Maybe that fishy smell in the subway will cease then........

If MTA spends money on turnstiles for Extra Wide people, who get extra beef on their burgers, then they should be charged for that choice, that got them extra wide. Fare = $3.........

Maybe the glandularly challenged males like you, so they sit next to you, cause you can't cry assault, since in reality, they have no choice but to touch you with their spilled batter and arm flab........:D:p:p:p..........

It's not nice, as I was teased when I was a little blimp from childhood, to teen-hood. It hurt so much........

Thankfully for 10 years I've been slim (more like athletically toned).........

 

I say we make the turnstiles a bit narrower. Too fat to get on the subway? Take the bus. Can't take the bus? Walk.

 

That would decrease the seating capacity on the bus, plus it will destroy the buses fuel economy. Walking.......well only if their knees can handle the stress load on them............

 

 

I agree, for some it is a genetic thing, but it's rare, I would never like that kind of lifestyle, it's really hard to live like that..

 

It's not really. Actually it's kind of a laid back lifestyle.......

Well, yes maybe for some, but I mean for the extra weight it would be hard for me, and of course to fit in a bucket seat...
