Excellent Pics! I like the R160As a lot, but those workers should really consider mopping those floors every night.

Mopping the floors was probably not an option considering how cold the weather was on Tuesday. Plus the cars were swept nicely, except for the lead car headed uptown. Well R160A cars are rolling the rails really nicely, thanks.

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere (maybe subchat?) that transit doesn't clean the cars in winter because of potential freezing...

The train crews can't use a mop because the liquid cleaners will freeze overnight, which is what you see here with this R160A (M) train.

 

Wonderful (M) shots!

 

Thank you, well the (M) is my favorite BMT Eastern Division line to ride in.

 

Boy do I miss my (M)! ;) Nice pics btw..

 

Thank you very much, it's all R160A cars now.

 

Nice pix on the (M)cDonald Line, :)!

 

(M)cdonalds? Oh, cool, thank you, but the (M) can't use the McDonald Avenue Line (Culver(F)).

 

Nice pics...

 

Thank you very much.

Nice pics!

Crystal clear!

 

Thank you, I'm glad you find them that way, the trains are easiest to photograph when they're stationary.

 

I know, well I also call the (M) the (M)ars line... So, I'll just say (M)ars line...

 

(M)(A)(R)(S)? Mars? That's a good one, thank you.

Well I know that (MTA) doesn't wash buses if it's below 20 degrees because of freezing, so maybe it applies to trains I am not sure.

 

Nice photos, I see you're taking more NTT pics..

Any public passenger entity is not going to put water on a vehicle if it's going to freeze up on it, no use in coating the vehicle in ice before you intend to use it.

Good stuff

 

Thank you.

 

Nice photos of the (M)

 

Thanks, the (M) is my favorite line during Rush Hours that is.

 

Nice pic collection.

 

Oh yeah, a cleaner at Metropolitan told me that when the temp is 32° or below they're not supposed to mop.

 

Thanks for the comment, well it's just common sense not to use any liquid cleaners in below freezing temperatures.

The only NTT photos that I've been taking are R160A and R160B, when I have time, I'll take photos of other lines' NTT Cars, especially on the IRT.
