R110As were transferred from East 239th Street Yard via the (2)/(5)WPR Line to the (4) Jerome Line and headed to Concourse last night, cars 8006-8010 only. These will be sent to Coney Island Yard/Shops in a few days so try to catch em. They are parked in front of the R22 toward Lehman College South Side(Of Concourse Shop).

Why are all the R-110As being sent to Coney Island Yard, though? I don't get it. Are they going to be repaired/rebuilt or something? And if so, what does the (NYCT) plan on doing with them? Work cars? School cars? Maybe revenue service cars?:confused:

The Redbird king, here at NYCTF told me it might be for skool car, no one knows really. Of course these will NOT be scrapped, why would they..

maybe they took my suggestion on this forum a few months ago to refurb them for (S) service (i wish)

 

just a refresher: my plan was to mod the cars to four car sets (get rid of unpowered middle car) to run on the shuttle.

 

ps. it would be really cool if they actually did that...

R110a>R142

100%! I never knew the R110A/Bs existed until I went on the web for the first time in 1997 and saw a picture of an R110B on the MTA website. It would've been great if the seats were incorporated into the R142/As. But I just can't imagine that something built by Kawasaki would have breakdown/fire problems.

R110a>R142

 

I agree as well. R110A is like the older brother of the R142. Similar bats but same NTT.

 

110As look more on R62A as well on the side u notice those bar(Dunno wat those are called). Ill just call this train the R162 heh.

i think they used to be in service, cause i caught it a few times on the (2) and once on the <5>, but that was back in like 94, and 95. they're the reason why i call the R110a's the "silver (2)" cause they were the only (2) trains i've saw that wasn't redbirds at that time. but i'ma try to hit up the concourse yard sometime real soon, before they dip out!

Strange...notice how some R110As have the old (NYCT) logo, while the others have the newer (MTA) logo. Just something I just noticed....

_________

 

I'll have a look at them this weekend to see if they are still there. The second they move to Coney Island, nobody knows what will happen there.

They were testing in revenue service. I road them many times as a (2) or (5). I remember in 95' seeing a news report about the MTA's NTT program. I used to see the R110A so much I thought their was more than one.

They did run in service on the (2) line in the late 90s. I rode it from TS to flatbush ave.
