R160A on the F

Recommended Posts

I just rode an R160 on the (F) from Jay St to 18th Ave like an hour ago and it was really cool! I like the announcements on the (F) better than those on the (M) and (N) The lady sounds clearer and less muffled. One weird thing was that between Ft Hamilton Pkwy and Church Ave the lights turned off for like 2 seconds. Never seen that on a R160 before.

Interesting to see the R160 on the line that we have debated and waited for its appearance for a while!

I knew about this since the day I got stopped by some (E) train T/Os and Conductors @ Second Ave. I'm not surprised that they went into service. Just a little sad.

I heard that they are only service for a short while , so T/Os can get the feel of it.

 

The crew needs to be certified in operating them before they can even run them in revenue service. If they are operating them, they are already certified.

I saw 3 R160 sets on the (F) tonight not counting the one I was on. I have to say I like them alot, but my trip was kinda slow from Jay Street to 15th Street due to a track fire at 15th.

Sounds like another bum is trying to keep himself warm...

Not this time, I was talking to the track guys and they said it was a build up of trash under the 3rd rail maybe 10-15 feet into the tunnel. They said it was minor, but you still need to shut down power and stop trains in the area.

Everyone seems to be enjoying the R160A's on the (F) finally. Here's the rest of my R160A on the (F). I rode 9242 R160A on the (F). Taken from my camera phone.

Good luck catching the R160 on the (F), everyone!

Here comes the bench seaters...

I'm really going to miss the R46s on the Queens Blvd express.

I don't know why it's a big deal if these bench seaters are replacing older bench seaters on the (F).

I don't see the big deal either, your behind don't care what seat it goes on....a seat is a seat. A train is not your house!

Woohoo! R160's on the (F)! Cant wait to ride one!

I'm going to have to disagree on that one. The R160's bench seats are very comfortable, but for me after 10 minutes of sitting on a orange seat, my butt hurts.
