The (F) wasn't in passenger service right?

Nice pics, though!

 

Its only in testing. That's why the doors opened on the wrong side.

 

Wonderful pics as always Curake!

Awesome!

 

@Ulmer: During car testing, they have to simulate the train stopping at the station, so they have to open the doors on the other side to prevent passengers from boarding while it is testing.

Great footage of the new R160A/B train cars. Can't wait for the R160 (F)ox to debut next year B)

Wait a second, there's a (J) going to Essex Street, as a terminal? or probably a mistake.

Excellent catch of the R-160 (F) testing, guess that R-160 is the 4th set in Jamaica or one in Coney... How do you know that a R-160 is going to come? I don't know how railfanners always catch them!!!

 

Thanks....my friend Shane (Majinvegeta) noticed a train coming with a red circle coming down the track, when I peaked it was a R-160
