I was on my way home today when i saw something that surprised me. I was at Broadway Junction and i heard a r160 (Z) train coming from the yard. i looked at the car number and it was in the 9900s. I was wondering when they get those new R160s.Then i realized that eny didn't get the new r160s until now. it may and they just get them. mta is slow at assinging new subway cars. Here is a picture. show?111591 i

IIRC, these New R-160 9900's are supposed to be working on the new (M) in late June. But, I am not sure why it went into service so early. Anyways, very great catch, ;)!

 

No that wasnt the case...

 

They was Burn Testing on the (J) and (M2) and since the Cut is being worked on they had no choice but to put them in serivce on the (J)(Z) or (M2).

Kawasaki delivered some more cars last week. Not only did I see them on Broadway (I was leaving 240st yards), Highway 1 who was escorting them in NYC (NYPD Highway unit), had us go through a red light at VCP South at Bailey Ave, so those trucks could make their wide turn. Would have taken a pic, but I don't want to be the cause of anyone, creaming their pants...........

Also, thanks for the consist info and time it left, will it ever go in service again at the 1626 slot?

 

Not sure. Now if they keep it a (Z) though it should be a (Z) tomorow for the AM and PM rush though now who gets it for a Put-in on the PM's thats another story...

Nope just was curious the (J) aint my home line lol.
Well they would have to be on the (J) since the c/r would be in the 3rd or 5th car and wouldn't be lined up at the same position as an R160.

But not to worry, should there be a shortage, they can still run an R32 on the (M) if there's a need to fill a gap in service :)

R160s to the (M) and R160s, R42s and maybe R32s to the (J)(Z). I did hear something about R143s to the (J) but I don't know much about that.
