Re: IND Crosstown (G) Line Gets R160 New Tech Trains Good News For (G) Train Riders

Posted by VictorM on Fri Oct 15 01:34:52 2021, in response to Re: IND Crosstown (G) Line Gets R160 New Tech Trains Good News For (G) Train Riders, posted by randyo on Thu Oct 14 16:48:09 2021.

Surprisingly, the R160s, allowing for coupler overlap are 60'6" long:


But the R68s, again allowing for coupler overlap, are exactly 75' long:


Therefore 5 R160s are 5x(60'+6")=300 ft+30 inches long, while 4 R68s are 4x(75'+0")=300 ft+0 inches long.

Which, logically, it would be eligible for once QB and Culver are done with their implementations.

That would make it 100% CBTC after the rest of the G is done.
