will the M9 ever adopt the yellow and black paint scheme of the M7 or will it stick with the cuomo colors?

Stick with the Cuomo colors, the early cars had the Yellow and Black scheme but Cuomo insisted that the cars have the Cuomo scheme.

They had the yellow, but not the black.

I actually prefer the change. Unlike the solid yellow, it's not eye-searing. (The black helps to set a contrast while maintaining a portion for those with lower vision.)

Quick M9 Update Based on Observations

9001-9080, 9085-9086, 9097-9100, 9103-9104 are all delivered and have been spotted on property.

9011-9014, 9049-9050, 9079-9080, 9097-9100, and 9103-9104 aren't in the passenger rotation yet. 

 

I have yet to see 9081-9084, 9087-9096, 9101-9102 and 9105-9202.

Here's what I've seen so far. 9011-9012 finally went revenue on the West Hempstead line a few days ago in a 6 car set. 9013-9014 still testing. 9077 up to 9104 are on daily testing runs and should see service soon. A friend saw 9123-9124 running the test track at Yonkers and they have up to 9140 on Yonkers property. The building process seems to be going quite fast. 9105-up should be delivered soon probably. For some reason, 9085-9086 is in service as a leading/trailing pair on a 12 car set I believe. 9049-9050 still awaiting service entry. Everything else from 9077-9104 beside 9085-9086 as I've said is testing still. Also awaitng the return of 9015-9016 which has been at Arch Street shops for months reciveing mods I believe. Not sure exactly what's up with that specific pair as of now ?

Thanks for the update. Good to know I was accurate except for 9011-9012 which just entered service. Also, good to hear everything from 9081-9104 is there. I assumed maybe some gaps but seems everything is coming in consecutive order. I saw 9085-9086 on the tracker today around 6:30pm, first time.

It honestly varies, but they tend to have 7-8 sets available at any given time, ranging from 6-12 car sets.

Another update as of today. 9097-9098 has entered service as of a few days ago. Seems like everything is going out of order. 9015-9016 still at Arch Street. 9077-9084 probably going under final preparation for service entry. Saw a test train at Jamaica on Tuesday consisting of 9092-9091-9106-9105-9088-9087. This should prove that 9087-up are still in testing status. Anyone that knows of new arrivals, comment here, have heard that CSX is slipping and becoming forgetful/failing to pick up cars to deliver.

Do the cars get delivered on their own wheels or are they loaded on flats?

It's a mix of both, some of them go on the rails via CSX to the Yonkers plant and Fresh Pond for delivery. Others go by truck to Yonkers and Fresh Pond

Another update, 6 car test train including 9101-9102 on the end failed Tuesday morning at divide on its way to Ronkonkoma and had to be towed back by 4210, a 12 car M7 deadhead. This placed all sets out of service temporarily for Tuesdays PM rush and Wednesdays AM rush. Three Sets have come back so far. Two 12 car sets and one 10 car set. A test train is also enroute to Ronkonkoma tonight once again. Previous tests have ran recently the past day or so including Hempstead and Far Rockaway I believe along with another Ronkonkoma trip.

Edit: as of this morning. 60 cars are in service. All are 12 car sets creating 5 total pairs. Seems that some of the cars have also been rearranged and mixed around into different portions of each set as they should
