Recommended Posts

Hey guys: on my way to work this morning I saw an R32 train signed up as a (B) at 145 St. Time of sighting was around 10:30AM; I'm wondering if this train was in service and, if so, did anyone here got a chance to ride it?

It must of been a borrow from 207th st yard, I had a feeling that An R32 was going to wind up on the (B), If its still in service I would right now go out there and ride the R32.

I also remember years ago before the (D) made it's debut on the West End Line and the rebuilding of the R32's,the old (B) West End Line service operated R32's.I would say early 80's at best and the old unrebuilt R32's had the interior powder blue seats,hand grabs,orange painted doors and the exterior doors were dark blue.I hope to catch that R32 (:o train on the Brighton Line soon before it disappears off into the sunset.

Im not surprized at this one, There were rumours about CI getting R32's back for Extra (B)/(Q) service along the Brighton, The last 20 R32's will go to 207th st for 10 car (C) service in the upcoming weeks, You might get only 1 set of R32's on the (R) or (V) until those trainsets get tranfered to 207th st yard.

 

I was not out so I just found this one out.

How many sets is it? I heard 2 from Jamaica and 1 from 207, but am inclined to believe that it's just 2 sets from Jamaica (unless the 207 sets are spares).
