R160 LCD Screens.

Recommended Posts

I took photos of three LCD Screens and a little bit of the map as well, the trains were approaching their terminals. Anyways, they're all R160 train sets. The FIND (Flexible Information Notice Display) was working correctly in each of the cars.

 

Etrain-1.jpg

This (E)'s number was 9267.

Mtrain-1.jpg

This (M)'s number was 8504

Qtrain.jpg

This (Q)'s number was 9032.

 

All from my camera phone, so the quality may be a bit off. I like the LCD screens.

Nice... I enjoy the LCD screens too.

It's so weird getting off an R40 slant (B) and getting on an R160 (Q)...

 

It's like traveling forward in time 40 years, lol.

 

I agree, it is strange to go from one train made from forty years ago to a new technology train and vice-versa. That happens a lot in many areas where R160A/B are running.

 

Although some LCD screens may not work properly from time to time, when they do, they are fun to look at, it's like watching TV in the subway. There may be more advertisements on video from these screens someday.

Nice pics. Your camera phone quality is pretty good.

 

Thanks a lot, although I don't like to use my phone as a camera that much. Be careful about using camera phones on the subway, some people may get the wrong idea.

 

Great pics, you just gave me an idea!....

 

Oh thanks, what ideas do you have? I can't wait...

That's an excellent idea! A collection, good luck with that. That's going to take some time, a lot of NTT trains nowadays.

Sidekicks have good picture quality in the camera. To me, it's a back up, and that's where I agree with your point. I don't want to use it as my main camera though, any camera phone for that manner. But they come up in handy. :cool:
