R160 on the W to Bay Ridge 95th & Gravesend 86 Sts

Recommended Posts

Are there two (W) trains going in both 86 Street on the (N) and 95 Street via (R), that must be big. I bet you took the Bay Ridge bound (W) all the way then! Great catch, I wish the R160B's were on the (R) now.

In december the (W) will be discontinued in Decmber (2008) because of the (MTA)'s buget cut backs.

 

Ohh,I thought it was gonna be discontinued this thursday. Thanks for the info.

(W) goes to Gravesend-86th in the am & pm rush,but they only send three trains in the am & pm which I think is around 7am and 6:30pm. The (W) to Bay Ridge was a one time extension to help reduce the congestion along the (R),it was heavily congested that day. and these vids were not taken by me.

Why are we passing rumors/possibilities as fact? Are we the the Enquirer now?

Its definite that the (W) will be discontinued next month?

No. Which is why I'm saying, we need to stop passing it off as fact.

Those videos of the (W) to Bay Ridge and Gravesend 86 St where done by me!

There was a delay in (R) service so they sent a (W) to Bay Ridge the day that I did the recordings. I got lucky as I was heading down the same way!

The (W) have like 3 AM trips (Around 6:20-7) from 86 st and the PM trips only go as far as Kings Highway now (8:18 PM from Astoria-Ditmars, next to the last and the last train does this). It used to go down to Gravesend 86 St however it got cut back to Kings Highway to not block up the N line as it waits for the yard line up.

Definitely. Your absolutely right. Until word has been spoken from the TA, the (W) sticks around...

Nice catch with those (W)infreys. Those are my fave transit vids!

It was reported today that the changes would be in the summer, which is just what I had been hearing before. They could not make the changes that fast (December) when we have already gone through the months long process of picking.

When in December is the (W) going to end? I hope not 12-10-2008... I can still get some shots...

 

It won't be happening in December. The forum needs to stop with this December ETA for the W being cut.
