I hope thats true, because during the rush it really needs it.

 

The express tracks from 7th Ave to Church Ave was used as a test track for CBTC. I think they have removed alot of the equipment though.

I'm very interested to see how that will work out if true. I bet CBTC will roll out smoother if it's installed from the get-go.

Only the (L) has CBTC right now. There had been equipment for testing it on the express tracks between 7th Ave and Church Ave in Brooklyn on the (F). Those tracks are not in regular service and most of the CBTC components have since been removed.

The (M) does not have any CBTC equipment on it's line as far as I'm aware of.

I think he was referring to the Middle Village section after Myrtle Avenue. I don't think that section is ready yet, even though it borrowed R143s from the L in the early stages. Now it's largely R160s.

1. you could say i reffering to Myrtle avenue - metropolitan avenue

shuttle (M) only weekends. they uses OPTO?

they use R143 and R160. ( (M) used to use R143 as shuttle in weekend

, dont they use. R143 in weekends shuttle.

 

but near future (6) line might have chance to become CBTC

or ATU in late night only.

You're confusing OPTO with CBTC. OPTO is one person train operation. CBTC is communications-based train control. One has to do with who is operating the train and the other has to do with the signaling system. BTW, it's ATO, or Automatic Train Operation.

OPTO - One person train operation. The train operator controls the train and also opens and closes the doors and programs the announcements (or makes them manually).

 

CBTC - A signal system through which instructions are shown on the Train Operators display (instead of him interpreting wayside signals)

 

ATO - Automated train operation. The computer operates the train for the train operator.

 

These are THREE DIFFERENT THINGS and are not IN ANY WAY RELATED other than CBTC equipment on both the line and the subway car is required to make a train run ATO.

 

Just because a train is running in CBTC does NOT mean it is running in ATO.

 

OPTO has nothing to do with either.

 

got all that?
