Today is the birthday for the r160 on the (M) line. It has been two years since r160 hit the (M). It also been two years since r42 have left the (M).

The (M) first received R160s in early April of 2008 (that's what caused the transfer of R42s to Pitkin and R32s to Jamaica). Then less and less R42s ran on the (M) until the summer months when the last one was gone.

I really wished I could have caught the last R42 (M) train...what a pity. Eh, nothing to worry about, I have plenty of time to ride them on the (J).

It took a while before all the R42s phased out off the line.

 

I recall it being very fast that the R-42s were phased off of the (M). R-160s were first used on a few (Z) and (J) intervals until there was an almost overnight shift of all ENY R-160s to the (M). I remember because it was the first time I had ever taken the (M) to MET and that was about a day after the switch and only a few R-42s were still running. There were fewer and fewer for only a few weeks until they were gone completely, IIRC.
