Any update on R44 (A)?

32 active cars, but not all needed for service.

 

No word on the last run.

 

Yep, the most you'd see on the road at any given time is three sets. That's what I witnessed this past Tuesday.

What was R44 again? I'm guessing its the model of the (C)?

 

R44s run on the (A) and Rockaway (S)

R44s also run on the SIRTOA, those are staying for another few years

 

The (C) runs on R32s.

 

And if you bothered to read the title of this thread it says R44 (A).

R44s run on the (A) only.

 

Not just the (A), but the (S) Rkway + SIRT

 

However, the R44 (A)/(S) are being replaced by the R46. The R44 SIRTOAs are sticking for a few more years and already got its SMS. The thing i don't like about the R44SIRTOA is just the propulsion sounding like an R46.

I knew their days were numbered when the (V) was getting replaced by the (M) and the R46s moving to the (A). That's why I didn't take any chances and fanned the (A) for the r44s on June 25th. That day I saw at least 4 sets on the (A) and one on the (S). It was worth it. I don't think I have the time to camp out at an area to wait for one to show up.

Yeah and today I was on an R-46 that sounded like an R-44 with the motor sounds.

 

It was the signature Whirring sound you would hear on some R-44's and R-68's.

 

Wonder if they used some of the R-44 parts for the R-46's after they were transferred to Pitkin and 207.
