R62A Garbage train on Lex Av, 6/23/11

Recommended Posts

Was waiting for an uptown (4) train at 125th around 7:30 AM on Thu 6/23 and a garbage train had come through. It ended with R62A #2013 -- a (7) car with the LED lights on it. Did they permanently take that one off the (7), because I thought it was still running?

Since it is the summer and it's A division, most likely the crews using that R62A car for ac since an R32 or such pair won't fit. the R127/134 or the windowless cars don't have ac.

During summer time, on the IRT, the redbirds are put away and the R62A joins the refuse train service with the R127/134.

 

For the IND/BMT lines a few R32s are placed with the R33WF refuse train while others join in with the R127/134 only.

 

R33WF/R127/R134s has no ACs. But the R127/134s are kept since they have closets and tables in them for the crews to chill in or whatever.
