W and V letters on since the mid '80s

Recommended Posts

I read that the (W) and (V) route letters existed on the subway indentification scrolls since the mid '80s. The (MTA) was planning these re-routes since then. This was interesting being that I thought those route letters were recently added but know that I think about it, it makes sense.

Are there existing rollsigns for the letters which aren't currently in use for a line (i.e: H, I, K, O, P, T, U, X, Y)?

 

H and K still exists (blue) and I believe U X and Y are white. Not sure about I O P and T. The JFK Express still exists on rollsigns.

 

ALso A Division rollsigns have other numbers on them. Seen a photo of an R62/A in the yard signed up as a 12 (green) and 11 is in purple

Okay, I see. Thanks for explaining.

That's true!

I've seen a photo of an R62 rollsign with the 13 but totally forgot which color it was. I think it was green. Also seen a photo of the 10 which IIRC, is red. Both photos were by Dante Angerville.

Those are nice. What lines did those trains run on, and when was that?

 

I think an MTA worker took those pics when the train was in the yard.

No I was wondering if those routes ever ran on a line. I know they're not current lines! LOL

 

8 used to refer to the third avenue El shuttle in the Bronx, but the cars themselves were usually marked 'shuttle'. AFAIK the others have never been used.

IIRC, P and T are both white.

 

IIRC, the 8 was supposed to be the same as the <6> and the 11 was proposed to be the <7>. I think the 12 was supposed to be a East side version of the 2. IDK about the 10-- maybe that was supposed to be a skip- stop of the 4, but I'm not too sure.

I've seen some Grand Central Shuttle Trains bearing the (8) bullet.

 

Sometimes the GC Shuttle is referred to as the "8", as the Rockaway Shuttle is still sometimes called the "H" - this distinguishes them from each other and the Franklin Shuttle which AFAIK is always "S"
