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

I took such a train out of service during the last RTO picks of West End B service before they switched. There was MORE than a slight response issue when they are mixed. Running from 2***s The rear half of the 5***s kicked after the dynamic was to be fading out under 10 MPH and replaced by Brake cylinders. The responding TSS chose to blame the defect on a compressor switch turned off when he discovered the mix up so to avoid getting a yardmaster or dispatcher blamed. The time delays in getting both sets to equalize for spotting stop markers was impossible for me to bother to learn for a 1:49 local trip so I called it off.
