  1. 6543 @ BP as of yesterday, dont know if it was a loan or not but its likely a loan and returned the jfk that evening
  2. They'll probably put extra old gen Orion VII's in depots that has the rts until the rest of the new buses come in.
  3. Remember there's extra R32's now since the R179's are in service.
  4. I think it's safe to say that they need to split the R32 fleet again. Having all at 207th isn't cutting it. When they had the fleet split like before (ENY and 207th) they ran alot better. They need to just bite the bullet and just send 102 cars to Coney island for service while the rest can stay on the or lines. They can just turn the R32's at Jay st since the switch was redone. Coney Island gonna need extra cars anyway so it would just be smart to run them on the (B), originally the was gonna get em but the is staying the same way. So the is the only option.
  5. I doubt they'll do that, if it's staying 8 cars then it'll be R32's or the R179's from ENY. They ether gonna make the 100% full length or it's staying 8 cars with them removing the 3 R46's on it. The went from 5-6 sets of 46's to 1-3 sets. Right now everything is tbd, we all know the isn't getting lengthed. The we have no idea.
  6. If they were to get rid of the bqe, I would just convert it to a subway line As for the city taking over the subway, buses and etc. Is not happening. The city ran city buses and that didn't work out too well in the later years.
  7. To late to edit but I ment to say 12/31/18 , not 1/31/18
  8. This is outdated There's about 8-10 sets of R32's on the There's about 4-6 sets of R32's on the After 1/31/18, 0 R32's on the / After last month 0 R160's on the All 222 R32's are at 207th st
  9. It would be nice in the summer if 1 set of 10 car R179's run on the rock pk shuttle between rockaway blvd and b116th st. That would be nice.
  10. If they really need a train they'll run the R42 on the (A). This was confirmed but until that happens it's strictly storage, they're basically on stand by. So far some returned to ENY for service just to go back to pitkin. I was hoping the R42's could go to the as originally planned but that obviously changed.
  11. They only have the large surplus because of R179 issues, R143's always being in the shop and prepping the R160A-1's 8377 and up for Queens CBTC. That's why the they need all the R32's and R42's. This is probably the reason the won't see an increase in car length yet. The however still has a chance. MTA did not mention nothing about the not being full length. Plus you have the 10 car R179's coming in, those alone would cause the to go full length. They're not getting rid of anything yet.
  12. The mta only mentioned the Not the (C), if the MTA annouces the isnt going full length then yea but it wasn't mentioned so the plan still stands unless changed.
  13. I agree 100%, I was looking forward to that regardless of what equipment run on it. R160's would have been nice for the (G). Also back to the R179's It seems like the run a lot better on the vs the and
  14. Spare factor, bumping out R68's that concourse lost back to concourse. Plus CI is already getting the R46's from Jamaica. The R160's require a lower spare factor than the R46's due to age. It wouldn't make sense to give CI the R32's if the isn't going 480 feet. That was the whole point of the R32's going to CI to supplement the 8 car R160's. It's better to keep the 60 foot smees at 207th for easy retirement once that time comes.
