Arch St

Postby ConstanceR46 » Wed May 02, 2018 2:06 pm

Hi. While walking past it i noticed that Arch Street ha gotten a lot of activity compared to a couple weeks ago.

-A couple sets of MNRR M3s (!!!) were located there, does anyone know what for?

-Both M7 sets from the Main Line Derailment in 2016 were there, with the Cab of 7033 looking stripped of paneling. Repair or being used for parts?

-The P72 and M1 set previously there had been relocated.

Dutch-
Why can't MNCRR do the PTC mod in-house? I remember an electric car shop somewhere around Nyack when I was on loan there during the FL-9 project.

Aight, but ain't M9A units slate to replace M3s?

And what are those m7s for?

As for PTC; i think Arch St is Bomb's offical facility to upgrade M7s.

Are the Valhalla wreck cars slated to be moved out of scrap?

Years back, the LIRR wouldn’t let Kawasaki do modifications to the C3’s due to being a non union shop. They had to lease property from NY& Atlantic in the former Yard A not too far from Arch St. I do not believe Bombardier is a union shop also.

LIRR has not officially accepted ownership of Arch St yet. No union issue.

??!!

MTA doesn't own the building proper? If so, who does? It is on their property according to city tax documents.

MTA and LIRR are not synonymous, LIRR has not accepted Arch street yet.

The LIRR will probably never own the building, but it will remain property of MTA Real Estate

Arch St is the running repair shop for ESA trains laid up in what was Yard A.When the Yard is finally configured ,then LIRR will accept Arch St Shop
from MTA Capital projects.
While the current access to the shop is a bit of a bear to get thru,for now a good place for the outside contractors to get the work done.

Alright, so today i saw another pair of M7s (7279+it's mate) laid up next to the other 2 from the Mainline Track Car Kerfuffle, with a couple window boards.

Are they there to be repaired or?
