That's fine. Any train prior to the R32, such as the one your working on, R1 thru R30 did not have the battery so it is great that those features will be there. The TOMC didn't have the battery b4 overhaul. Back when they were in revenue service. In the early '90's, the TOMC did get the battery as well. But as I have stated b4, since these trains are from the era of the '50's, '60's and '70's, then yes the feature should be there. Not on the NTT's though. Any old school route should also have this feature. Not present day routes though.

That's exactly my point. The battery is only meant to sustain the car as it crossing over the point or the gap. A lot of transit systems use this method now. I ride the 4,5,6 everyday, and I have never once seen the lights dim or the HVAC even shut off leaving the 3rd rail. Now of course if it's taking longer to reconnect, then yes, the lights will go out and the HVAC would shut off. The battery is only meant to hold for a few seconds on cross. If it's sitting in the gap, then yes, the lights would go off. But again, it is extremely rare for this to happen, thus, it wouldn't make any sense or be realistic to code this into any car after the R32 and up or any route.

I believe JayJay released a 5 meter add on for this pack.

This is a good idea. However, NYC trains no longer lose power between 3rd rails gaps. Power is now supported throughout the car in the gap because NYC trains supply a short system battery in all cars now to provide power for a short period of time should the train leave contact with the 3rd Rail. Thus, no train power loss and no lights go out. It just wouldn't make any sense to code this into trains or routes since no train in the NYC system losses power over gaps anymore. The only way I could see this being used is on older trains such as your upcoming R16 and routes from the past such as the 1969 shuttle.

More screens

Cool!! Check your PM.

That could be the case SIR. I'll run the train again. Also, do you have any IRT walls? This is necessary for me to update the Highbridge line. And if you could at all possible, make a sign for the 8 as an R142 and R142A, that would be perfect. (Preferably the R142A love that train. lol)

It's on the second preview SIR just put up. I ran the 4 train version.

Nice work SIR. However I need to point out 2 things. 1) The motor sounds only seem to play on P3. Putting the chain in P1 or P2 plays no sound at all. Where as the R142A motors make sounds on all power levels. And 2) For some reason, when you put the train in neutral will moving, the run sounds don't play either. Other than that, nice work.

Excellent work JayJay!! Shoot me a pm.

That brings me back. Haven't been on my Highbridge line in years. Lol. Having said that, I need STRAIGHT ON photos of IRT walls. And not slanted if possible. I need at least 45 different walls as well as end wall shots. If anyone can obtain these for me, please let me know. I would like to start work on updating the Highbridge Line.

Cool!! Can't wait for the Sieman's set!! Love the sounds. Hope this will have the individual route letters on the panel like the 179 has now.

Hey DJ, just wanted to know, does this train follow the NYCT track sound standard? Non of Mr. Railfans trains do.

What's up people? Sorry for the lack of updates. Just wanted to let everyone know that work on the (E) line is still progressing.
