READ FIRST:
Rare mid-day weekend appearance of an R32 A train to Far Rockaway. Normally, the two R32s stay on Lefferts Boulevard runs. DJ Hammers (http://www.youtube.com/user/DjHammersBVEStation) was with me on this jaunt. Be sure to check out his content. Enjoy =)

Table of Contents:
0:00 to 33:26 - Grant Avenue to Far Rockaway - Mott Avenue (R32 3864; good dynamic brakes & fast T/O. 44 MPH into Broad Channel)
33:26 to end - Far Rockaway - Mott Avenue to Grant Avenue (R32 3804)

Time-lapse version:

The fact that the videos are long isn't actually a good thing, if you know what it means. #americantrains

Lol, this is a metro, not high speed rail lmao.

In other news, the R179 has begun system-wide clearance testing as of a few days ago. Here is the train on the E @ Sutphin-Archer-JFK:

Are there any technical differences between the R160 and the R179? They look exactly the same.

And some improved communications/display gear.

Can someone please move that Fordham Road post to the Commuter Rail thread where it belongs? Thanks.

The Pennsylvania Avenue station on the train in East New York, Brooklyn has been shut down for a month now with no end in sight. This is all because a truck crashed into the elevated platform.

Wow, I've always thought of the possibility of things like this, especially in Queens with all those elevated columns right next to the street on the sidewalk, sometimes in the median of the road. It's almost one of those truck vs train.... and it's a draw, scenarios, like when a truck knocks a freight/Amtrak/commuter/"full rail" as I call it train off the tracks.

2 questions from me:

1) How are gap fillers at places like South Ferry and 14th St - Union Square controlled?

2) What is NYCT's definition of platform edge doors? Do they mean a full-height installation like London or Paris, or lower, more fence-like designs as seen in Japan?

R179 features:
- Bombardier propulsion and train software.
- Bombardier trucks instead of Kawasaki trucks
- Updated operating cab configuration (minor differences)
- Improved passenger stanchions.
- Other minor differences.
