Now we know what the R179's are pushing out. And it makes logical sense. The R46/160 swap (CI-Jamaica) is put on hold until further notice. (Might not happen at all with the R211's coming in cbtc ready).

Makes no sense to push out the R32's where they can push out R46's instead which is a good thing.

Same what i think. Might not happened at all the Coney Island and Jamaica R46 and R160 swap.

has 3248-3257 been delivered yet?

Yes, I believe 3248-52 was actually testing recently out on the Rockaways Test Track. I know 3261 crossed the bridge last night

I am on the 3241 and the light is slightly flickering all the time and is severely flickering during braking and accelerating.

From my travels today:

3238-3247 is coupled with 3238 and 3247 in the middle of the train, probably going through the same testing 3010-3019 did, but running in service

Also, I caught 3253-3257 testing on the flats. Its possible 3248-3252 has moved on to simulated stop testing, no clue as I didn't see it

3248-3257 currently testing along the A line. It should be Southbound in an hour or so.

I’m going to assume that 3020-3049 won’t be delivered for a while

Probably the last batch to be delivered

Seems that once all the 5-car R179s are on-property, there will be more trains for their total in each B Division. (Same thing that was done on the A Division)

Meant:

 

The (A) and (C)  didn't have enough spares before when the R179s aren't on both lines....

Just spotted 3258-3262 being towed by diesels at Chambers Street going south at 1:45 AM. Looking fresh...
