Are R68/68As still on the N?

Recommended Posts

R68/68As make their appearance on the (N). The (N) is fully R160 at times, but the hippos make their appearances often,

They're still on the (N) once in a blue moon.

I was lucky enough to catch R68A's for 4 rides on two different days earlier this week.

 

And I'd have to disagree with MTR. Unless 3PM is considered rush hour, your explanation can't be true.

Well, I'll amend that.

A R68A gets signed up when there's a need for an extra train. How about that? :P

I believe there is 3-4 R-68/68A (N) in Service... The R-68/68A is almost dominating the (W) Line for now, :P!

 

Can't be that many. They sign up 1, possibly 2 R68As when there is a need for more service on the N.

Actually, rush hour begins at 3:30PM...

the (N) is fully R160s, but if there is a servicd gap at any time (which is rare), or during a weekend G.O., then an R68 may pop up on the line.

I saw 4 R68/R68A's on the (W) this week

Some of the ones you saw were probably the saw. At least 6-7 sets out of 10 on the (W) are R160, but I haven't been on the line in months.

Finding a R68 or R68A train on the (N) is like finding a needle in a haystack. It's really hard to catch one these days. If anyone does catch one that's taking a break from looking at the FINDS on the R160 cars on the (N).

I think :

 

(N) , <Q> ,(W) still uses R68's not all the time.

people are intrested to see R160's run on the

(N) , (Q) line all the time.

they will not like to see R68's run on those line.

If soo:

 

#2782 - #2915 , #5001 - #5200 run on (:) , (N) , (Q) , (W)

line.

 

 

so i would say give away #2782 - #2915 to jamaica yard.

and they will able to retire R32 , R40M - R42.

 

#2782 - #2915 will able to run on (G) , (R) line.

 

#5001 - #5200 still run (N) , (Q) line?: cool:

Dude, seriously, what is it with you and your posts always typing up running numbers and gibberish. You're getting out of hand already and annoying some of my members. You need to stop this immediately and start adding to the discussion or else. :mad:

harry is right. besides, your information is not right. R68/68As are still quite common on the (Q) and they are not going to Jamaica. the (G) is set to start using R68/68As soon and some of these cars from Coney Island may go to Pitkin to replace any old cars they still have.
