I don't know, GOs aren't that pleasant, especially if you have an appointment and you happen to get caught on one. I mean weekend frequencies are horrible themselves, but when you add the GOs, oh man.

Actually i must of mislead you bro. I was saying Best G/Os as in photography.. So rail fanners can grab trains that are detoured and take shots or sumin, I know G/Os are the worst news, seeing that it causes massive delays and people start to complain and bs. =/ Hope that helps

Heh, oddities right?

Tip: Try to avoid Jay. It's not going to be a pleasant place. They will put down new tiles on the Uptown side, put the tactile strip and do column work. They will also put down floor tiles. And also, they will still be doing the connector work, so that will make things lousy, as usual.

 

From the viewpoint of a straphanger, GOs are the worst news possible. I remembered what happened to me last time when I had to take the train all the way to my girl's place, only to find my journey laden with GOs (and arrive late).

Since the (F) is going to Euclid is there a possibility a R160 car will go to Euclid or will it just be mostly or all R160 this weekend on the (E)?

The (Q) is going to be a mess this weekend, but there are some options for bus fans to get photos of the Propect Park/Atlantic Avenue Shuttle bus...aka the "B41 Ltd". I'm suprised they even gave a shuttle bus considering one could use the Franklin Avenue Shuttle to the (2), (3), or (4) to continue ones trip up Broadway.

I always make sure to read the G.O.'s to carefully plan out how much time I should allow and how to get there. I know it's a mess with G.O.'s however it's ether that or let the system fall apart even more and cause a line to have no service for a long time (3+ Days)

I hope R160s are on the (F) the day it gets rerouted via the (C) line. I'll also do the (Q) train shuttle and some other good G.Os. (E) via the (F) was great when it was first with R160s, now its just dull

Man, last time I had no time to bother with reading the posters. :)

My girl called that Saturday morning and I literally ran out of the house.

Seeing the (G) would go to stillwell, wouldn't that mean it would be using CI cars? If so.. Maybe the R160 would run on the (G) for that weekend, unless the T/o and C/r airnt qualified?

The G will see R32s, R40M and R42, the crews are not trained. The F won't run R160s during this time, I believe. I think they use a mix of train crews including the C crews (which have not been trained). The R160s will dominate the E.

Well the (F)(G) should be interesting it will be possable to ride a R42 or R160 on the (F) to Euclid or a (G) to Court SQ since the (G) will share equipment with the (F). The only thing is would they let a R160 operate on the (G) since some may not be quilified.

Hate to break it to everybody here but you will NOT find 160's on the Fox next weekend. Reason is the switchmen at Euclid aren't qualified on the 160's.
I thought probably not, too, but I just saw one on there (at Bway ENY). Properly signed F To Euclid, etc. Northmost car was 9400! (Didn't even know that high were in service yet)

 

But then, from what I remember, T/O's always have to relay their own train anyway, and they would not be laying the 160 up at Pitkin.

The question is not so much the switchmen, but rather the C jobs out of Euclid that wer e probably ttansferred to the F. They probably just use 160 extra crews like they always do when the entire line is not qualified yet.

Yeah I saw an R160 (F) over at 2nd Ave heading to queenz. So there might of been some 160s. But I didnt see any R40/42 (E) on sat too. It was just 160s
