Yes..

 

Hopefully this isn't an issue on the other cars so we don't have to take all 300+ of them back again...

I highly doubt that they’ll remove all cars because of a loose railing....

Chairman Foye isn’t  gonna let that happen. 

And then Cuomo will try to force him out like he did with Byford?

Well and then even as the most Genius as he truly is <<:rolleyes:>> Governor Cuomo will not be able to personally operate the entire MTA by all himself...I know his Greatness has tried that very thing, no?

Did all of the R179 cars returned to service today?

I don't think so. There are still 2 10 car trains that still need burn in testing and it's unclear if those tests were done while the rest of the r179's were oos.

I’m not sure, but I’ve seen quite a few on the (A), (C), and (J) today. A couple R143s are currently on the (J) as well.

I’m aboard 3020 as we speak.

I keep seeing R179 (C) Trains. It seems like they avoid sending out R32’s.... :)

You could tell MTA Subway Crews are getting beyond tired of using R32 and R42. And I don't blame them for that, because they were supposed to have been retired already.

The (A) had tons of R179s today I couldn't even keep count LOL and the (C) had a good amount today as well that line actually  had way more then I thought because I seen a couple of R32s today on the (C) and lots of R179s back on the (C) which I'm happy about I'm glad the (C) has them again now the (A) ahh man that line barely had R46s today I've seen lots of R179s on the line and some R46s on the (A) and not one R32 on the (A) today that line is slowly and slowly going back to normal very good. For the (J) I only seen a few R179s today on the line I was really happy to see the (J) touch them again so yea there was a couple of R143s and ofc R160s overall  I had some fun fanning all those 3 lines.

I tried getting an R32 on the (A) today, and saw basically the same thing. Both the (A) and (C) had a healthy amount of R179s.

I might try again on Wednesday or Thursday during rush hour, as today I waited during the midday when the (A) has kind of pathetic service (a 15 minute headway to each branch).

Afterwards I saw a R46 (A) then I took a R32 (C) back One stop to my station. Then I saw I think 2 more R179 (C) and 1 or 2 more (A) 179 plus a NIS R46 (A)

Caught an R179 train on the (Z) at Canal this morning. Car 3110. Also saw one leave Chambers northbound on the (J) with car 3070 bringing up the rear. The doors did appear to close a bit faster than before.

Ain't we just so lucky?

I noticed on some mornings they use a mix of R32s or R179s on the (C) and R46s and R179s on the (A). the 179s usually head uptown in the AM for both lines from what I've seen, except yesterday I noticed like 4-5 on the (C) and 3 on the (A).
