We're running as much service as we can with the trains we have available

Those Staten Island R211s can't come soon enough! Of all the MTA railroads I only see this type of service advisory with SIR, those R44s out on SI are 49 years old. SIR is short train crews and is short of equipment sometimes. MTA should put the NYCT R211 order on hold and get the SIR order in first to get it out of the way since the order is so small and SIR is in dire need of newer equipment.

No, if they used to run MP72s on there.

M-3's are 4 feet longer, and they could not use a switch in or near the tunnel.

Not the first time I stated this. Clearance issues at St. George prohibited from SIR. A friend of mine who is a former SIR employee told me this.

Lengthwise, not heightwise ? (MP72's were about 8" or 9" taller)

They would have to refit them with cab signals which would cost money so that isn't an option. That's why they didn't send R46s there a couple years ago.

I remember when the R27/30s were new. I used to have one of those old TA subway maps that would show a picture of the latest model.

A big part of that "THUNDER" was from the old un-welded track.

Consider the sections of rail were 39' long and staggered, so every 19 and 1/2 feet there was a joint.

BOOM, BOOM!

Both upper and lower tunnels were two tracks wide, so closer to station platforms.

BOOM, BOOM!

Yes, they ROARED!

There was also some 33' rail here and there.

I remember when they used to cut the trains down to two cars overnight but they don't do that anymore, maybe that would help? Those overnight trains still had a conductor, but temporary overnight OPTO on SIR wouldn't be too bad.
