Maybe you can answer me, bd popeye, I was going to ask the following in the cont'l forum. How come the train to the run featured in the following video is categorised express, I don't follow the rationale? The city-bound J train made all stops except for the three stns twixt Myrtle and Marcy Avs, as filmed starting 1'20"? I mean, wouldn't it have just been worthwhile to have stopped at the three stops on the nearly-30-station line to its route?

I'm not sure but maybe the Z train that runs a local route on the same tracks was not fully operation that day. Who knows? the NYC subway is very quirky.

The J and Z are considered express trains because they do not stop at stations between Marcy Avenue and Myrtle avenue weekdays, during rush hour and in the peak direction, whereas the M line is making all local stops.

After Myrtle avenue the J and Z trains operate as skip stops trains, J trains will skip some stations that the Z will stop at and vice versa.

Bombardier is forever disingenuous at not eliminating its unnecessary squealing brakes from its succession of subway stock ... or are those stock Kawasaki products

I don't know exactly what rolling stock is (if anybody knows, I'm gonna add it in the original video description), but my ears hate it when that happens...

Once upon a time, Bombardier made stock free of squealing brakes ... the following video show's the firm's first ever model of rolling stock; now 36 years old, the brakes have taken to squealing just the past few years

The trains in Montreal have rubber tire axles. The traditional steel wheel is on the inside and the rubber tire is on the outside. They tend not to squeal as much as traditional steel wheel trains, but that does not mean they don't squeal at all.

The trains in the video are that of the MR 73, they were built by Bombardier during the 1970s.

Actually, the oldest trains on the system are the MR 63, which looks like their newer counterparts, but have different engines, traction systems, etc. The MR 63 is based on their Parisian counterparts, the MP 59, which is currently the oldest rolling stock on the Paris subway.

These are the MP 59 stock on the Paris subway. They were manufactured by Alstom (makers of the R-160A) in 1963. The trains on Line 4 are currently being replaced.


Below are the trains replacing the MP 59 on Line 4, the MP 89. The MP 89 were manufactured by Alstom in 1995. They are the first "Metropolis" brand trains that Alstom manufactured. Versions of this train operate in Santiago, Chile. There is also a fully automated version that operates on the Paris Line 14 and on the Laussane, Switzerland Line 2.



And by the way, the MR 63 stock in Montreal are slated for replacement in 2014. Below is a concept car that demonstrates the new rolling stock, called the MPM 10. The MPM 10 is being manufactured via a consortium between Alstom and Bombardier.

Their need for replacement's probably way less than for outdoor trains; the only weathering they experience is literally blood. Plus its braking is just as conventional as other stock ... better off at blaming today's quality of components at production

That is true, as Montreal's system is completely underground.

I've always wondered what's the point of asking the ZIP code when you buy a Metrocard using a credit card, if you can just digit 00000 and it works.

Perhaps they are interested to know where their customers come from?
