The GOH program for the R32 to R42 fleets took place from 1987 to 1991.

 

did each set have its own date? like the first R32 was overhauled in jan.1987 while the first R40 was overhauled in dec.1987?

Dont forget the R26, R28, R29, R33ML/WF, R36ML/WF

 

GOH really started in 1984(or 1985) with the R33 or R36 being first, cant remember which..

They were sent to different places to be overhauled. R32s were rebuilt by Morrisen-Knudsen, with the exception of ten cars, which were rebuilt by General Electric. R38s were rebuilt by GE as well, which is why the interior of a GE R32 looks exactly the same as an R38. All R40s, Slants and Straights, were rebuilt by Sumitomo, and R42s were rebuilt by MK (about 300) and CI (100). R44s were rebuilt by both MK and 207th Street, and all R46s were rebuilt by MK. No more cars were overhauled afterwards.

Overhaul began in 1985 and lasted until 1992. They basically sent out the cars in worst condition to be overhauled. If I'm correct, the R46s were the last cars to be overhauled.

Wiki shows also that the R44 Rehab ended in 92 so we both correct:

Maybe I should have posted a new thread for this, but I would like to ask: is it cheaper to perform routine maintenance and avoid large-scale GOHs, or does the economies of scale of a GOH pay for itself as a result of a deferred maintenance policy?

 

That is, is it wise to save money on running repairs and send entire fleets to be overhauled at a lower cost per car than with small-scale SMS programs?
