The L train is long enough on its eastern end. It's already too crowded by the time it reaches Bedford Avenue in the morning inbound rush.

Yeah, but I suspect the overall point here is that very little --if any-- of its monies would ever come from any NYS/NYC administration

Probably the very same one that, permissibly, had the rest of the passengers of that carriage in stitches

Exactly.. there's no money now or in the future for any new project. Just maintenance and upkeep.

I just would like to know: Are NY government improving their subway fleet??? I'm asking that because every video you post here shows obsolet trains in square shapes running louder in the tunnel...I mean, as you are the richest country on the world, you're supposed to have the newest fleet as well.

Here in Brazil, we're taking a few steps towards the right direction, changing and modernizing ours...



This one is provided by CAF, a spanish company, and holds cutting edge technology such as: powerful A/C, self-extinguishing fire system, surveillance cameras...there are about 20 of these running over our metro lines.

I think NYC does have some new trains they look exactly like the old trains though.

Why did they do that was it a cost thing or a design look ?

Not sure what you mean by "obsolete" trains when a majority of our rolling stock runs these: https://www.google.com/search?hl=&q=r142 https://www.google.com/search?hl=&q=r143 https://www.google.com/search?hl=&q=r160

They may look similar from the sides (boring grey metal), but on the front and inside it's entirely different. Check out Youtube videos of these before you boast.

I think it's been mentioned on another transport thread that cost is a major factor. It seems to be cheaper to virtually replicate an existing design instead of developing a more innovative, modern design, which is what almost all of the US subways/metros have done, just replicate existing designs.

The insides, I will agree, are vastly different - pretty sleek and modern.

I'm not boasting at all . I was just curious about...thanks for the links, they're very beautiful trains, even though they look like a square box. According to last post's information, you're just updating the old fleet, which also sounds good...Same thing is happening here, but we're just buying some new ones in order to develop our industry, virtually inexistent in that sector...

Ah actually much, not all. of the rolling stock of the NYC subway has been replaced the last few years.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Yor..._rolling_stock

And the Federal government is not dolling out the bucks to the MTA anytime soon.

most of the subways in nyc are now modern just the system is old.

most parts of the system are old they are only few new stations.

the trains are clean but the stations dirty.

R160:

Well, he has a point. The rolling stock never left the crack age, looks wise.

But i grew up with '80s NY movies... so it makes me feel at home.
