No (2)(5) is R142 and R62A for (7) with future of R188. Tho there is plans to send the extra R62As from the (7) to ether 148/Livonia, 242nd/137 or Union Port/180th according to a document i saw on the t/a site..

The apostrophes in the car designations are incorrect, actually. 's is akin to saying "is". Compare the following sentences:

 

  • There's a chance of rain on Saturday.

  • There is a chance of rain on Saturday.

 

 

Now lets take what you thought to be correct: "Will the (7) line get R142's or R142A's?" We can expand that sentence the following way: "Will the (7) line get R142 is or R142A is?" Doesn't make sense now, does it?

But plurals of numerals have an apostrophe, don't they?

 

  • 3 3's vs

  • 3 3s

 

 

Then again, could be a regional difference. The British in Birmingham recently got rid of the apostrophe. At least for possessives.

What 7LineFan said:

* 3 3's vs

* 3 3s

So.....

Will the (7) line get R142's or R142A's? is correct B)

It's unnecessary and advised against.

I do not see the (2) nor the (5) swapping their R142 cars with the (7) and their R62A cars at all. In fact I'm reading reports that the (7) will get converted R142A cars from the (6) and not the R142s. I don't know, it's too early to tell.

 

Back to topic, the (2)(5) will keep their R142s. I don't think most passengers would be too happy to see cars other than R142 on the (2)(5). (7) will get R188s in which I have no clue what they look like.

I agree, I think it is most likely it will be the R142As from the (6) that will be moved to the (7) so it would be a direct fleet swap. The (6) can also use those R62As with the LED signs so they won't have confusions about the local or express in the Bronx. Not to mention how much of a pita it would be to change so many strip maps if you have the (2)/(5) R142s sent to the (7).

(2)/(5) needs NTTs because they both share the same terminals and yards.

Where the problem lies in your suggestion is the fact that (6) riders like their NTTs. If the R142As were moved off the (6), the MTA would never hear the end of it. Keep the NTTs on the (6).

I don't think that should be a reason, but worst comes worse, the (6) still sends out their R142As and the (4) will then take on the R62As and the (6) takes on the (4)'s NTT.

But either way the (2)/(5) has to stay as is for flexibility at the terminals.

 

Finally, imo, I don't think the MTA should care about what 'riders prefer', the riders should be happy they even have a train. Plus the R62As are not that bad and the 6 only stopped running them like 6 years ago.

The subway ain't about preference, it's about Rapid Transit. Deal with what they give you B)
