What would be the ultimate subway car combination? ( R62 seats on an R42, like that )

Recommended Posts

NTT slant with the curve in the side, beige floor & blue R40 seats. No center poles. :)

You try ridding a crowded F train with no center poles.

I would like to see the steel swinging handle bars on an R44/46

I think those trains were the first to be delievered w/o them. would have looked nice.

How about an R32 with the siemens propulsion? Image how that will be.

hmm...that wud b nice. hell, put siemens propulsion on a BMT standard...

...and then paint it with the red bird scheme.

 

yep, that will be cool, it will bring back memories, but imagine the R32 with a mix of Alstom and siemens propulsion. The sound will be precious.

What about a Brooklyn Union Gate Car with R142 announcements and controls? It would still have metal signs, but LED marker lights, rattan style seats but made with Kevlar so they can't be cut up.

Then you must be going at an odd hour, because when i go its crush packed to safe capacity if not over at times. For the small system it is, PATH has a LOT of riders. WTC to NWK around 5 pm on a regular weekday. :)

They do look nice till you whack your head on one or cut your hand on the protruding spring.

Ah, a weekend/late night. No wonder.

 

R40 Slant with R160 Interior and siemens proplusion. Now thats a horrifying site.

 

Slanted NTT with R40 interior. :cool:

 

R160 + RFW

R40 - gates, just like when they were delivered

 

I say let the slant be NTT and have retractible gates as to keep the leading & trailing car be uncluttered.

 

RFW on NTT = a must, even if its on the trailing car only.
