New R160 coming

Recommended Posts

Just today while heading up to the Bronx I saw some R160 on a flatbed truck waiting to cross the GWB. Sorry I couldnt get any pics because I was driving. The car numbers I've seen were 9312,9313,9314 and the 9315. Also if im not mistakin I think there were 2 cars that had a tarp over them so I couldnt see what it was.

They are about the same length. Did it look like they had 3 or 4 doors? If it was 3 then it was PA5.

 

THey have been delivering them, and they are the same company, so.... Any chance they were museum stuff? Did you see windows? Trolly pole?

I couldnt see it because of the tarp.

 

OH! That kinda tarp. I was thinking of the easily seen whats beneath from the shapes white shrink wrap.

 

Old PCC cars from newark subway are shrink wrapped. If you look carefully you can see the pole & the windows.

 

Other rail vehicles that i've seen being transported near my town also sometimes have it.

I highly doubt it. The R160 cars are Alstoms meaning they were sent in from Alstom. PA5s are being built by Kawasaki. I don't know why a truck by Alstom would stop at the Kawasaki plant and pick some PA5s up.

I know they are R160A's

 

Anywho, they should begin testing next week if all goes well.

By the way, since the R160A's début on the E, has anyone seen test trains in action lately on the QBL?

I just passed the Jamaica yard, and there are at least four R160A 10 car trains lying around, two signed as an (E) and the two test trains signed for the (F). I think the (F) will begin R160A service by March, at least.

He probably saw it from the Van Wyck and couldn't see the numbers.

 

Eh, but he was able to differentiate between the E and the F, might as well catch one or two digits.
