R42MK trains signed on the (A)

Recommended Posts

I see that they started delivering these cars to Pitkin. I saw a R42 when I was on the train this afternoon. i heard the first train will be from far rockaway on monday. i don't know what time or if it will happen.

Not as bad as I'd imagine it must have been moving those R62A's from the (6) to the (7)... Now THAT was a move and a half...

i heard that they are moving the phase i r32s to jamaica this week because there was a lot of r42 cars at pitkin/207. i wander if they already started reefing the phase ii r32s.

Tell me if this is right: They went from the IRT Lex to IRT Livonia to BMT Canarsie (via Linden shops yard lead in ENY) to BMT Broadway el at Broadway Junction to BMT 4th Avenue Brooklyn to BMT Broadway subway to IRT Flushing at Queensboro Plaza.

 

Or: (6) => (3) => (L) => (M) => (N) => (7)

Sounds good to me...of course no 3rd rail on Junius St. center tk so theyd have to been Pulled...

 

Only other connection b/w A and B Divs (other than the ones named) is through 207 St. yd...

Alright, so perhaps (6) => (S) => (1) => (A) (thru 207 yard) => (D) => (N) => (7) or (6) => (5) => (2) => (1) => (A) => (D) => (N) => (7) or (6) => (4) => (D) (via Jerome-Concourse yard connection) => (N) => (7)

 

I love the way they gotta weave through the intricacies of the system to move trains to certain places...

i know they came from east new york. how did they come from east new york to the pitkin yards?

 

Go across the Willy B, use the Chrystie Street cut, change ends on 6th Ave (north of West 4th Street perhaps)..

 

Go South on B1 Track trough West 4th Street, then go upstiars on A1 track(where the old (JFK) Express used to go) and then stay on 8th Ave...

 

Right to Pitkin Yd in Crooklyn..:cool: :cool:

when are these trains suppose to be on the (A) Line and if so, will it just be r40m, r42 and r44 trains on the (A)?

 

The R42s are soppsed to be on the (A) any day now. To replace the R32s that will go to jamaica yard. And the R40Ms will be over there once more of those japanese R160s come into service. And more R42s will jump ship as more french R160s come into service...

40Ms and 42s are cool I guess, but still I like the 32s and 38s better. Better seats and more reliable IMO. But I don't think I'm gonna like 40Ms, 42s, and 44s on the same line, since 32s and 38s provided some relief from 44s. 40Ms and 42s don't provide the same relief to me.

So if the R42 replaces the R38 and R32 on the (A), where do those go? I know the (C) is like R32 heaven, but the excess are either getting scrapped or moved I suppose.

Not sure about the R38's, but the Phase I R32's that are displaced will be headed to Jamaica and replacing some of the Phase II R32's that will heading to the Ocean..at least from what I heard
