How'd R160's Look on the (B)
« on: April 18, 2011, 05:05:54 pm »
VIDEOS AREN'T MINE

R160A B train to Brighton Beach
IND Brighton Beach Bound R160A B Train Leaving Chambers St.
R160A B train leaving Chambers Street

They asked the C/R To change it (at least, that what it says in the description) Remember, the videos aren't mine

To the MTA, it'd look very "safe", but to me, it'd look very boring , see, they already have 160s on the Q already, so why the B?

To me, i think it would be useless if you put an R160 on the D. See, the D and B is the same thing in the Bronx and Manhattan. So it wouldn't even make a difference. And what Ben said, there's already R160's on the Q via Brighton. In my opinion the R160's should of went to the (F) (L) (R) and the (J/Z)

They are there already. Besides why would all the R160's go there? Another thing unless we have another R44 crisis in the R68/A we are just gonna have to except the fact that those trains are PERMANENTLY assigned to the B and D

What other people said they dont need anymore 160's but i think in the future there might be because technology is always moving forward isn't it?

Thats funny b\c I don't think anyone has yet to catch an R-160 (B) IN SERVICE! But several people including me caught some (D)'s the past few days,weeks,months and years.Most of them re-routed (N) and (F)'s of course but some were put-ins.

That's still not a definite sign that the (D)'s would get them.

I think that the R160's kill the route its assigned to doesn't show the true color of the route. But dont get me wrong i like the R160's but i think the should add colors to the route names

Yea the 160's are bland they have absolutely no character which is the main reason people don't like them.

Speak for yourself, I actually no preference on trains, as long as they take me to point A to point B.
