The Numbers?

Recommended Posts

Well once all the SMEEs are gone (by the time the R188s comes in {hopefully}) the numbers that'll be available is 3000-4999 so they can shoot for the stars with the numbers lol. (I skipped 2925-2999 cuz it runs into the R68 {it stops at 2924} and 5000 cuz the R68A starts at 5001)

It all depends on what number slots are available. The 3000 and 4000 slots will be entirely open for sure. I wouldn't be surprised if they decided to use the three-digit number slots again (e.g. 555 or something like that).

They could be numbered 2925 or 5000 though, since no other subway car has those numbers.

IMO they should have done that with the R62/A and R142/A numbers so that they would be more consistent. If the R62's were 1301-1625, the R62A's could have been 1626-2450. The R68's could have been 2451-2874. As for the R142/A's, they could have been numbered 6301-7330, and the R142A's could have been numbered 7331-7930. There would have been no need for the 1101-1250 series (or, if this was due to differences in times when the cars were ordered they could have done the same, but the 1100's could be renumbered to 7181-7210 and 7811-7930).

I thought of another thing...if they order a little bit of cars (possibility) they can number them right between the R142A & the R143 (#'s 7811-8100)
