  1. You can say goodbye to the 1921-2-5 set that's on the Shuttle as it'll be added on with 1908 and 1910: 5-car set *1906 and 1907 are the only R62As for Corona work helping EP R134 units to clean up along the Flushing line.
  2. And, if that's the case: 1910 may get its rollsigns back. The last time, it was at Corona Yard as refuse motors, the top and bottom scrolls are missing: it may receive the new single lined rollsigns that are spread all over the 1, 3 and 6 lines.
  3. I'm hearing yes. Since the Q58 is not going artic yet. The B13 will be kept at FP. You can check again during the holidays next month as details are given the "green light"
  4. There may be another problem with the R179s. Image of the R179 shell getting scrapped at Moore Recycling Reference: Moore Recycling

  6. When a NYCT Bus gets transferred to an MTA Bus Depot, is the farebox removed before the move or when it arrives at the destined depot?
  7. There's a R68 train heading back down Coney Island via 6 Av Also, with the via the and line, it takes 16-20 minutes from Grand St @10:21 PM to Dekalb Av @10:41 PM, b/c of train traffic with two other lines using the same track via the Bridge.

  9. The Bx15 is another route. It's 1/2 artic and standard CNGs during the weekends.
  10. The 42 St Shuttle is currently doing a SIR method (former Nassau/Atlantic stations) on track 3. 4 cars on that track, however, 1 out of the 4 does not open.
  11. I believe they want to balance the and to be mostly 160s (meaning not want the R68s to be back to back to avoid rollsign confusion). Last week, I saw the with 2 R68s and the with an R68A heading to Stillwell with one going over the bridge to queens. Those R68s are between the R160s. -- R62As 1908, and 1910 are at 207 St Yard.
  12. I wonder if the Q10 will be next in line for luggage racks on their XD-60s.
