R40s moved to pikin yard

Recommended Posts

To make some room for the R160s.The MTA moved some sets of R40s to pikin yard for storage.The thing i dont get is why move them to pikin yard.If i was the MTA i would move them to the 207 st scrap line instead of pikin yard.

Well, you don't want to go and overflow 207th so maybe Pitkin has room they can provide til the R40s move to their proper places later.

Why would you move them to the scrap line? Why would you scrap the third best train in the system?

They dont store trains on the scrap line. and no the R110B doesnt count It would make sence to start putting them on the scrap line start stripping the parts.And then get them ready for reefing same goes for the CI R42s.The yard is already overflowing with broken down R142/As.But they store them in the main storage yard not the scrap line.

Are you serious? If they are the Third best train in the system.Then why did the MTA buy the R160s? Because the R40s are falling apart they being held togther with duct tape they are not holding up well.They are nowhere near the best cars in the system these are the best cars in the fleet right now

 

1]R68/A

2]R62/A

3]R46

4]R32

5]R160 even though i hate them they are good so far.

the R40 Slants are an excellent train, the reason why they are being held with duct tape is because the yard neglects them. if the R40 were properly maintained then they would be alot better than they are right now.

You fail to read properly because I didn't say anything about storing them there.

 

Like I said, you don't want to go and overflow 207th. They're just keeping them at Pitkin to avoid overflowing 207th at the moment and when things move along at 207th then they'll be moved up there.

I didnt ethier i said to start scrapping/sripping them right away and then to the reef.I didnt say anything about storing them there. The R40s are being moved are already retired.Right now the scrap line is empty and they could put some R40s on the scrap tracks right now.

How do we know the scrap line in 207 is empty?, For the record, the R40 is/was one of the best Car Classes New York City Transit ever utilized within it's rolling stock consist..

Well the R-40s's are falling apart but why is the R-32 going to endure past 2009? I think MTA wants to get rid of the because the Slant-end are dangerous. You see MTA realized there mistake in the 70's and the last order of R-40's were flat ends instead of slanted. It pains me to see them go. I really enjoyed looking out the front end of them and I met my fourth girlfriend on a (W) slant.

To Error-

 

Maybe, JUST MAYBE, the r40 are held together with duct tape because they're OLD and FALLING APART....

The MTA is scrapping some R38s that havent ran in yearshttp://http://www.nycsubway.org/perl/show?79784Im guessing that the R110B is in its last days too?Mind you that these R38s havent ran since like 2005.They were just sittng around the yard collecting dust.

 

EDIT Im hearing that them R40s at pikin yard may not be in storage and that the A/C lines might start gettng R40s.Because the MTA might move some pikin/207 st R32s to jmaica to kill off them R32s that are on the E/F lines
