  1. I'm sure this info is also going to be in an upcoming ERA bulletin as well as elsewhere, but the official car assignments have changed to reflect R32s running only on the A line alongside R46s and R179s, with the C being a mix of R46s and R179s. As it happens occasionally with changes to car assignments for various operational and bureaucratic reasons, sometimes it takes a while for what actually takes place on the road to catch up to the changes in car assignments. But given that the official car assignments denote zero R32s on the C, I'd say get your R32 C rides in now while you can I guess.
  2. Changes are coming to the and lines very soon, may even be tomorrow. The R32s are on very borrowed time.
  3. Those were the last 3 cars to be delivered - 3047/6/5. They’ve started installing the number plates on NYCT property for some of the last few deliveries.
  4. Not sure what tweet you're referring to - I didn't tweet that. Regardless, that info is correct. The cars are no longer in regular revenue service.
  5. There are two R46s out today and they have been cycling between the N and W lines. Today was the first day that we operated an R46 .
  6. Not necessarily. That R46 that was on the yesterday will be running somewhere else today... That’s why I grabbed my R46 video yesterday as soon as I could:
  7. The R62As on the 7 ash do not have CBTC. They operate under AWS.
  8. Very very rarely. I don't think a move has been done over that switch in a *very* long time. That switch is part of a standalone interlocking, so a TSS or Tower Operator has to be there to operate the switch. It's all moot now - the switch has been out of service since August and will be removed over the next two weekends.
  9. Thanks!! For these shots, I used a GoPro Hero 7 Black, which has good digital image stabilization. I also do very heavy post processing for all my videos, which includes additional digital stabilization.
  10. I spent the early part of Sunday morning taking a look at the R179 A train, including its very first run from Euclid Avenue to Lefferts Boulevard. Enjoy!
  11. My footage from yesterday, including the very first run of the train in customer service - 6:45am Euclid to Lefferts:
  12. That trip is no longer in the base schedule but it is still done ad-hoc by line supervision on evenings when a lot of work trains are scheduled to leave 38th St yard.
  13. Caught this last night. Note the very unusual consist - 7 R33WFs, a signal dolly, and two R134 type cars. Enjoy!
