R160A's on the N line

Did the (N) line use to have more R160A's in service back in mid 2007 to the end of 2007? I am just asking this question because, i remember seeing the (N) line using more R160A's besides that only one R160A-2 8653-8662. Do you think that those R160A's that the (N) was using were 4 car sets linked into a 5 car set by adding two extra cars to make a ten car train?

:confused:

 

Put the Liquid Paper down for a minute and ponder the following question:

 

If R160's only come in 4-car sets and 5-car sets, where in the world do the two extra cars come from?

 

Ohhh the future of our country. :cry::cry::cry:

In August 2007 i saw R160A-1 8313-8322 as a 5 car set running on the N line. The R160A-1s were linked into a 5 car set and ran on the N as ten car trains.

 

What you're saying isn't true. The 8313-22 series are four car units, therefore your numbers that you have in your head that ran on the (N) are all mixed up.

Pretty sure you mean 8713-8722, which aren't 160A's.

And no, 8653-8662 were the only 160A's that were around during the time you described. The rest came in with the 89xx's if I remember correctly.

Now, 8653-8662 were the only A-2 sets running on the (N) line. Those were 10 car sets completely. In 2008, more A-2s were seeing service on the (N) & (Q) lines.
