(5) is fully R142s

 

(6) and (6x) are fully R142As

 

(7) and (7x) are fully R62A

 

(9) service is now part of the (1)

 

(A) uses R32, R38, R44, and R42's occasionally. The R40 slant cars might appear on the (A) due to fleet overhaul.

 

(B) currently uses R40, R40M, and increasingly the R68 and R68A (75 foot cars) One R42 car #4665 is mated with R40M 4460 due to the crash in Willamsburg Bridge accident with the and trains

 

(C) uses only R32 and R38's in an eight-car set.

 

(D) uses R68's fully (75 foot cars)

 

(E) uses R32s with an occasional operation of the R46's

 

(F) uses R46's and R32's

 

(G) uses R46's but it's only four cars for one train

 

(H) is renamed (S) and uses just four R44 cars, and full length 8 car trains during the summer.

 

(J) uses R42s, with limited usage of the R160A

 

(K) is now the (C)

 

(L) uses R143's with occasional service of the R160A

 

(M) is increasingly using the R160A cars and less R42's

 

(N) service is using mostly R160B's with one set of R160A (set number 8653-8662) and some R68 and R68A

 

(Q)service uses R68 and R68A subway cars.

 

(Q6) service used the same cars as the (Q) but ran on 6th Avenue

 

(Qx) is replaced by (N) in Manhattan and (B) in Brooklyn

 

(R) uses both R46's and R32s

 

(S) Franklin Avenue Shuttle uses two R68's while the 42nd Street Shuttle uses three or four car R62A cars

 

(T) is a proposed line. When it operates, it will use the R160B's option order cars.

 

(V) is fully R46's

 

(W) is using R68 and R68A subway cars while the R40 and R40M cars are dwindling and being transfered to the (B)

 

(Z) is mostly R160A's but this might have changed because the (M)'s use of the R160A's has jumped up since last April.

 

(JFK) is not in used, did use R46's as their cars to go to Howard Beach from 57th Street and 6 Avenue, required additional fare as part of the Train to the Plane.

Today at Brighton Beach, there were two (B) trains using R68A's and one (B) using an R68. I have seen an R160B on the (B) but it was only a test train.B)

This is best to my knowledge, but here are a list of types of subway cars that may appear on your line.

 

 

 

(Q)service uses R68 and R68A subway cars.

 

(Q6) service used the same cars as the (Q) but ran on 6th Avenue

 

(Qx) is replaced by (N) in Manhattan and (B) in Brooklyn

 

 

 

Correction, (Qx) service used the same cars as the (Q6), R40 Slants; Via 6 Avenue.

 

(Q) Trains use the 68a's that ran on the West End (B), prior to that, they were on the (Q) that ran 6 Avenue. Todays R68s on the (Q) are from Coney Island Yard, via the (N) Line; the mid-2780s to 2914.B)

Sorry for the mistake. B) You're right about the old (Q6) fleet. It mostly was R40 slants. When it became the (Qx) it used the same set of cars plus the R40 Modified model.

 

Now there's no (Qx), it became the (B) Brighton Express in Brooklyn and the (N) Broadway Express in Manhattan, though the (B) and (N) don't use exactly the same cars as the (Qx). The R40 slants can be seen mostly on the (B)B)

Great, great list, but a few things.

1. "(A) uses R32, R38, R44, and R42's occasionally. The R40 slant cars might appear on the due to fleet overhaul." the R40 slants are being reefed, but the R40Ms are the ones that will go to the (A) along with the R42s when they are done being transferred.

 

2. "(E) uses R32s with an occasional operation of the R46's"...if you call 'occasionally' about once a year...lol...

 

3. "(W) is using R68 and R68A subway cars while the R40 and R40M cars are dwindling and being transfered to the (B)". R40s are extinct on the (W) and have been for two months. One appeared or some reason on Monday but it's probably gone.

 

4. "(Z) is mostly R160A's but this might have changed because the 's use of the R160A's has jumped up since last April." The (Z) has been temporarily stripped of its R160As for use on the (M) and it will remain this way until more cars are delivered.

The (Z) line doesnt have R160s on it only 42s. Same goes for 160s on the (J). The r160s are kinda well banned from running on the (J) and (Z) until the CCTVs gets put up. The MTA dosent want to get sued if somebody gets hurt at those stations.

the E doesn't have R46's anymore thank goodness

No, from time to time you'll see an R46 pop up on the (E). Its not so common, but it does happen.

When I did ride the (E) probably a few years ago, it was mostly R46's at that time. Now, it's rare, and you'll find one eventually on the (E). Most of the R46's have been transfered to (G) and (V).
