I would hate to say it, but I think they might. From what I heard they were leaking badly and school car could not use them most of the time becouse of this.

Tunnels provided more waterprooing towards the end than the roofs sadly, cabs must be a mess and electrical fugedaboudit.

Damn another R40 slant gone, They should use R32's for school cars, They would not have to worry about the leaking part.

The problem is would their doors and A/C actually work most of the time? I mean the R40s does have the best A/C among all the fleets.

For one thing all the R40 roofs are heavily covered with duct tape, which in most cases aren't waterproof.

 

That is not duct tape that is bonding tape, it is much more substantial than duct tape...

They should have put them in a shed or something. Leaving it exposed to the elements would do a great amount of damage to the cars.

Listen, when they gotta go, they gotta go. No need having to keep two cars around if you're gonna have to keep covering them with bondo all the time.

So then it becomes a question of why were thes selected in the first place? Didn't anybody check that these were leakers prior?

I knew LRG would cry over this, but I agree with Zman. 41 years is long enough for a subway car to last, in any capacity (revenue service, school car etc). Its about time the slants get to rest in peace and become a home for the fish.

Be it's fate a school car or the Atlantic Ocean, the Slants will forever remain my favorite subway cars. I'm moving on now....:cry::cry:

 

Ah well, life goes on. The 32s and 42s are still here!:P

The R32's might have towed the R40 slants, Those R32's might have came from 207th st.

Are you saying that those Slants are basically in inoperable condition?
