hmmm, very interesting, so what happened to the R188? they still working on that too, or is it in the backburner due to budget? I know the 10-14 capital plan states the interest in procuring 146 cars (new cabs, not including R142/A conversions), but i don't see how that works, unless there are plans to procure more cab cars...
