If TwoTimer doesn't get to it first, I'll get you updated later this week.

Middletown Road arrival signs were working on both the uptown and downtown sides as of 4:30am today. Somewhat depressing to see 27 minutes between (6) trains; shouldn't they be on 20 minute headaways? Anyway, I didn't see any working from Longwood Ave(the last one working) through Middletown Road. Not sure if Buhre or Pelham Bay Park are activated as I got off at Middletown. Progress people!

Cool, I dont think they'll be at or south of Parkchester for a while, they started the rehab for all those stations now. There is no canopy at Whitlock/Morrison in both directions.

New signs at Middletown Rd - http://twitpic.com/10dpal
New signs at Buhre Ave - http://twitpic.com/10dt0w

That makes 7 stations with the new signs.

TwoTimer is correct. Whitlock Avenue and Morrison Avenue-Soundview are scheduled to close at 5:00am Monday February 8th for station rehabilitations.

The MTA service advisory is saying unti 5:00am Monday September 13th. Sounds like this will be the final week for photo ops and trainspotting at Whitlock Avenue until the end of summer.

Looking forward to updates as the system is deployed. I'm the person you hear voicing the announcements. I recorded probably close to 1,000 announcements, most only a word or two. The system constructs the sentences from these fragments. So far I've only seen and heard the system via YouTube videos.

This thread should be stickied. It's more of a long-term thread over the course of a few years and with rather frequent updates.

Done, and done! All those who wish to be updated on the status of these timers need only look at the top of the 4/5/6 forum. If the program expands to further lines, then I'll sticky it in the Rider's Platform. Till then, enjoy!

Today they started working on Astor Pl and Canal St. Interesting to note that none of the gap stations on the 6 line in the Bronx (3Av, Hunts Pt, Parkchester, West Sq, Pelham) are online. Another interesting point is once functional, Astor/Canal will show info on (4)s and (5)s as well when they are running local, a small milestone for the system.

I've observed that the system has a lot of glitches, going from 2 minutes to 22 minutes at the blink of an eye. But it's still useful, to some extent. The correct times outnumber the incorrect ones.

Its still in testing, and also those gaps in the system (some places online, other places not) may play a role there. Its subject to the same kinks and faults that occur inherently in ATS, since its based solely on what ATS sees and does.

Well one of its tenets was to provide the information to update the network to the more newer systems around the country and around the world. The other idea was so people wouldnt look out over the tracks looking for trains. Most of the cuts affect stations that currently doesnt have the technology (in the B division). For instance, the 6 line will barely change at all, save fewer evening trains (right now headways are at 10 minutes until almost midnite, they used to be 15 minutes after 11:15ish before the expanded service took effect). Most of the cuts on the numbered lines involve service on the 1 line, there is no word if they were taken out or not.
