BMT / IND line

Recommended Posts

is B , D line going to recieve new R160's.

 

why i said that was :

 

 

A / C line going to retire R32 / R38 / R40slant

soon.?

 

N/Q/W have to many R160's.

 

will it be better if #9558 - #9592 go to B / D line ( concourse

yard)

 

N / Q / W line give away (R68A) #5001 - #5200 ,

R68) #2500 - #2608 go to A/C line

 

bronx riders will like to see if R160 run on D line.

Probably not. The R68s are rather new compared to the other cars that are being replaced by the R160.

but think about it. The R68/68A is about 25 years old. Compared to the ones that are getting retired that are pushing 40+

Besides the look of rust and the dirtier seats on the 44/46 compared to the 68s the trains mostly look timeless to me, i remember when i wasnt into subway cars i rode the R42 everyday and i thought they were from the 80's. when i found out they made their debut waaaay back in '1969 i was shocked.

If they took 68s off the (D) to tell the truth I'd be crushed. I grew up with the 68s and they always proven reliable to me, I plan to become a t/o when I grow up and I won't most likely be able to operate a 32 in revenue service so the 68 is the runner-up. They still got some years on them, they're not going anywhere soon at least I hope not.

Are you one of the people used to bucket seats? 'Cause the subway would never be the same with the NTTs having hard benches. I would always love the R44s for their smooth ride and that they were the first to have bucket seats.

R160 cars have tested on the (:P so I think the (:P will get the cars first, as for the (D), I don't see the R68 leaving Concourse yard anytime soon.
