None of the stations are fully 100% functional, its all in a test stage. There is no guarantee any of the above stations will be on when you go through there. It is purely hit and miss, the list is merely a survey of stations where the signs were spotted working at some point.

I noticed at Franklin Avenue that the board was turned off but actual announcements of arriving trains were still playing. I noticed sometimes Eastern Parkway would have its train arrival times replaced with a clock. Sterling Street, as far as I know, consistenly has the train arrival times posted. About Eastern Pkwy and Sterling St though, I only see them briefly passing by on the train. My home station Beverly Road isn't set up yet. cry The board on the Flatbush Av-bound platfrom hasn't even been unwrapped yet. Anyone know why certain stations get boards set up before others? Wouldn't it be logical to start at a terminal and go up from there?

It' nice the Pelham Line has lots of countdown clocks set up. Heck, just about every station still open (excluding Pelham Bay Park and Parkchester)have clocks up and running.

In Brooklyn, I saw the board at President Street operating. I also saw the board on the Manhattan-Bound pltform at Winthrop St turned on. Unlike the board at President St, the board at Winthrop St just said "Data display - system test " and randomly showed flashing colors, so I think it was turned on not long before I came. Note that I only saw both boards passing by on the train, coming home from school, so their conditions may have changed. Finally, I have no idea whether Hoyt St-Fulton Mall's countdown clock is set up.

Morrison and Whitlock were working, but have since went offline due to major renovation at those stations. Parkchester's was never installed with pending renovation there. In the early days of the renovations, one could still see Morrison and Whitlock's clocks up and working as designed even though the station was closed.

I would like to know myself why the boards on the (A) and (C) lines are different from the boards on the IRT. Also, President Street and Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn have countodwn clocks activated. I saw them today traveling home from school. I was up in the Bronx the other day and I noticed 138th St-Grand Concourse, or at least the Manhattan-Bound platform, has a countdoswn clock set up.

President/GAP have been there for quite some time. The IRT boards get their information from ATS, which includes which numbered line is coming next. It even knows when non-revenue equipment is next, not putting up arrival time for that but instead making a 'stand away from the platform' announcement. Its more sophisticated (but many times more expensive) than whats in the IND.

The boards over in the IND was a pilot that used existing technology (instead of overhauling the signals and installing new wiring and computers, etc at a cost of nearly a billion now), but the system does not know which train is coming, but merely that something is coming based on the activated track circuit. That may be sufficient being that many parts of the B division only has one line running on any particular track.

That would be cool for non-revenue."The next Maintenance train to New lots avenue will arrive in...".

From what I've been hearing these stations haven't been activated yet. However, I'll ask my friend who regularly takes the train through these stations on Tuesday to check if they're up or not.

If anyone has any updates with these stations, along with any other new additions, post them here.

President St and Grand Army Plaza, as already stated, are up and running consistently. The board at Winthrop St was turned off yesterday, I don't think it's gotten to the actual countdown clock phase yet.

Sorry I haven't been able to get an updated list out more recently, guys. I haven't been on the forums much since I've had to study for the SAT II Chemistry. I'm back on now that that's over with.

Atlantic Ave. has the boards on but the announcements off. They are currently working on the announcements and they should be on soon. Franklin Ave. should be working at 100%. If anyone has any updates with these stations, along with any other new additions, post them here.
