TimmyC62 Posted November 5, 2017 Report Share Posted November 5, 2017 Thanks to Transit Geek for suggesting a new thread dedicated to New York MTA's non-subway rail services. Took a late Metro-North ride last night (12:07 departure from Grand Central to New Haven, Nov 4, 2017), and was surprised to catch an older consist, as I've only ever rode the newer Kawasakis - I believe I was in the first car, 6349. Oddly, 6349 seems excluded from the Metro-North rolling stock list in the wiki: https://cptdb.ca/wiki/index.php/Metro-North_Commuter_Railroad Regular Wikipedia indicates it, despite the dated appearance, is part of the 1996+ purchases. Anyone know how regular it is for these older consists to operate on the New Haven route? A bumpy ride, being the first car - seems these older sets don't have synchronized brakes or have really stiff horizontal suspension, and every time we decelerated it felt like the cars behind us bumped into ours with quite a jolt!
