When will the R62/As be replaced with the R262s? Also, are the (6) R62s going to get replaces with R142/As then R262s, or R62s to R262s with no R142s.

also, is the (1) the only train to run the R62s?

Correct me if I’m wrong , I think the (3) uses the 62s and the (1) uses the 62As

Of the 315 remaining R62s, 10 R62s are assigned to the (1), supplementing the lines fleet of 350 R62As for a total of 360 cars (36 trains). The other 305 R62s are for (3) service (30.5 trains)

The R262s will probably come out in the mid to late 2020s. We don't even have all of the R179s and we are months away from 2020, so no time soon.

Does anyone know who this guy is that keeps replying to twitter comments from the MTA about the subway service changes?

This has been in the works for a while. They really shouldn't do it given all the operational issues it creates, but I guess if you have to, this is the way to do it.

Those Express trains are gonna get held at Church by the (G) and some Local (F)’s 🤦🏽‍♂️  Let’s see if it breaks 3 and a half minutes worth of time savings.

They won't interact with (G)s, but you can count on merge delays with the local (F). My real concern remains the impact on 6th Avenue service. Already, *any* gap in (F) service heading towards Brooklyn in the PM snowballs to the point where the train following the gap invariably is late enough to be sent express Jay-Church. I shudder thinking about what dwells would be under full blown (F) express without any additional service -- and by that point, you'd probably get problems in Brooklyn too.

With QBL CBTC, could you run 17 (F) trains for an 8.5/8.5 split? (Locals would terminate at Church and the (G) would terminate at 18th middle).

I'm not sure we'll get to 34 on QB without rerouting, dwell times being what they are...but 8.5 still won't be enough. I'd say you'd need 10 each before you can start talking.

How about 10 (F) , 10 <F> and 12 (E) (you would have also a (K) service and a Lex 63-59 passageway to try to incentivize people to either take the (F) or the local.)

If your (E) is still going to 53, those 12tph of (E) are going to be crowded as hell. 18/12 was the pre-63 operating pattern; there's a reason they changed it. I think you'd have to wait for some extensive Queens deinterlining before messing with frequencies there...

Where's my Post about 500 Islamophobic Hate Crime this Year in America which i posted on this thread 7 hours ago?

It was taken care of because it was irrelevant to this thread. As per the guidelines of the website, can we please stay on-topic? Thank you...

A couple thoughts: 


- On the (F) to Coney Island, it was an R46 as I was on but onboard that train spotted 5 R46s back to back to Jamaica-179 St with another 2 behind that was a R46. After that, it was a 160.  The rotation varies. 

- The (M) to Metropolitian Av, instead is just Middle Village (observed on the FIND).

I’ve seen a lot of R46’s on the (F) recently. Also, I haven’t really noticed the minor change with the designation on the (M), though I have seen pictures on Facebook about it. Well. I’ll see for myself tomorrow morning

Let’s play a game:

List 100 ways to fall into the 1 hour gap in bus service (n31, n32, Q114) going from Far Rockaway into Five Towns between 2:00 PM & 3:30 PM.

I’ll start:

1) A dog is on the tracks in front of your (A) train at Rockaway Boulevard, making it so that instead of arriving at Far Rockaway at 2:15 PM as scheduled, you arrive late & just miss the last bus out of Far Rockaway for the millionth time in a row.
