  1. No, all cars are here. The 18 cars were to turn 4-car sets into 5-car sets (which turned the original 4 10-car train part into 13 10-car trains, hence the number split from 3010-3049 and then the 10-car trains beginning at 3238)
  2. I doubt they will scrap any cars. My guess is they will mothball the R32s and if needed, put them back into service if something like the R179 door issues happen again where they need to pull the fleet.
  3. Due to an issue in Queens on New Year's Eve, a few E trains got sent up Central Park West to 168 St. Enjoy! This train ended up running through the station, though slowly as it followed a C just ahead of it
  4. On August 18th, I was lucky enough to enjoy a trip out on the Myrtle and Jamaica Els on the BRT Gate Cars, sponsored by the Transit Museum in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Myrtle Avenue El service ending. Enjoy!
  5. From what I heard, nothing will actually be scrapped until the R211s begin to replace cars. Until then, they will mothball the 42s and some 32s (think of the having what, 10 sets of R179s now, they probably can sideline a few 10-car trains indefinitely)
  6. Correct. IIRC they said once the full bus and subway rollout is complete (should be by Q4 2020), they will begin introducing reduced fare, unlimited, etc.
  7. Both 86 and 96 were active (accepting payment) on my way home today. I posted it to a Facebook group where I got confirmation it's also on at Woodlawn. I think given it's also on at 68th, it very well may be activated from Grand Central to Woodlawn as of today
  8. Enjoy this bit of NJT and Amtrak action at New Brunswick from this afternoon:
  9. While coming back from piano lessons, I caught the tail end of a GO which had trains running express to 96 St. Enjoy!
  10. Cubic tweeted on Friday that they just installed physical readers at South Ferry. Not active yet, but it's the actual screen + NFC component, so likely all the stations with mounts will start to get them leading up to (I presume) an activation of said stations in December.
  11. Except "completing" in this case has only been mounts. We've yet to see additional readers come online outside of the 42-Barclays corridor.
  12. Exactly my thought – sure transparency is nice but just telling the public "we put those giant mounts at these stations" probably would just confuse people into thinking OMNY was being accepted at those stations, or that the mounts are different from OMNY. It's the most logical to update it when more readers come online.
  13. I think they'll update it when more readers go online. So far they've yet to expand the actual coverage from the initial pilot; they've just been installing the bases
  14. Just saw this on the MTA Memes Facebook group – Houston Street now has OMNY mounts Edit: someone on Discord told me 170th on the also has mounts now as well. Don't have a pic but it would line up with stops like Fordham getting it.
  15. Here's some exterior videos of the Lo-Vs from Sunday's birthday event. Enjoy!
  16. Enjoy multiple fast express runs on the Lo-Vs, taken on the subway's 115th birthday.
  17. For the 115th birthday of the subway, the Lo-Vs were brought out to run on the Broadway Express from 96th Street to Times Square. Enjoy these photos from the trips! A fake-out before the main attraction arrived at 96th The Lo-Vs arrive! On board Times Square The crowd inside With a cameo from President of NYCT, Andy Byford! Heading back uptown after the last ride Bonus train
  18. After attending a college tour at Rutgers, I was able to spend the rest of the afternoon and rush hour at the New Brunswick station on the Northeast Corridor. I was able to see tons of 125 MPH Amtrak trains, as well as a lot of NJT action, including a good number of Arrow IIIs. Enjoy! Started off with a Conrail Shared Assets Operations local freight, which was quite unexpected! CSX #4408 pulls the short train southbound ALP-46A #4648 leads a train of Multilevels into the station 4612 shoving north First set of Arrows to make a stop at New Brunswick of the day, and it's definitely not the last ACS-64 #625 leading a southbound Regional The approaching Keystone would make a stop at New Brunswick, as one of the few Amtrak trains each day to stop Ex-Metroliner cab car #9634 leads the Keystone... And ACS-64 #615 brings up the rear A southbound Acela racing towards New Brunswick An express to Trenton formed of Multilevels
  19. Stopped by the Newark International Airport Station for a bit after landing from a flight from Buffalo for a bit of nighttime action on the NEC. Enjoy!
  20. Given how fast they installed them at 96th (quite literally put the mounts in overnight, all the turnstiles were done by the day after some mounts first appeared), it seems like it's not challenging installation. I assume the readers themselves are an even faster process to put on top of the mounts. They may also then just install readers/mounts in waves, and enable them in a similar manner (versus station by station)
  21. 86th still doesn't have them. I take the one stop from 96th to 86th every day on the way home so I can get a seat on the M86 since a lot of people always get off at Lex. I'll be sure to post when 86th does get the readers. Oh, and here's 96th: :
