Re: NY: Higher subway speeds worry NYC train operators -- and new report explains why

Posted by Train Dude on Sat Nov 16 07:11:08 2019, in response to Re: NY: Higher subway speeds worry NYC train operators -- and new report explains why, posted by AlM on Thu Nov 14 18:09:11 2019.

The allegation comes from a "train operator" who works the lines using R68As. Every railfan has heard the old wives tale that the R68A brakes are slower than R68 brakes. It sounds like the operator is reciting that yarn and these guys are eating it up. While there may be slight response differences between 68s and 68As, BOTH car classes meet the standard braking criteria for all NYCT railcars. If he is a competent operator, this should not be an issue.
