What Would Be Your Dream MTA Subway Car Rosters By Subway Line?

Recommended Posts

Just curiosity: Using the current subway cars and then using retired subway cars what would be your dream MTA subway car rosters by subway line? Would you place R160s on the (R); R46s on the (D); R38s on the (G); R40 Slants on the (E) for examples?

All Subwy Lines Would Use NTT's Except For The (Q)(F)(N) Which would use R32's R40's and R30/A's before the GOH Program. just the original paint schemes and how the R40's looked before all the safe guard chains where added

In my opinion, I would like it a lot if some (not all) of the redbirds can be on all of the IRT lines so people can still see out of the front and the back of the trains. While growing up, I enjoyed doing that so much, especially on the <7>!

 

Similar for the IND/BMT, if the R32s can be scattered along most of the lines I would be so happy!! Rail Fan Windows Rock!!

239th Street Yard:

 

Eliminate some R142s for R62As from the (1)

 

- (2) Trains will be serving both R62As and R142s.

 

240th Street Yard:

 

Eliminate some R62As for R142s from the (2)

 

- (1) Trains will be serving both R62As and R142s.

 

Coney Island Yard:

 

Eliminate some R160B Alstoms to Jamaica Yard with R160A Alstoms. The Siemens will remain in the yard!

 

Eliminate some R68s to Jamaica Yard to serve on trains that serve on Jamaica Yard!

 

- (B) Trains will be serving R68s and R68As.

- (G) Trains will be serving R68s and R68As.

- (N) Trains will be serving R46s (5 Sets) and R160s (Half R160As and half sets of R160B Siemens)

- (Q) Trains will be serving R68s (2 Sets), R68As (4 Sets), and R160B (Both Alstom and Siemens)

- (S) Trains will be serving R68s. (Franklin Shuttle)

 

Jamaica Yard:

 

Eliminate some R46s to Coney Island Yard.

 

R68s will be served on Jamaica Yard from the Coney Island Yard.

 

*Jamaica Yard has too many cars, so I figured out to exchange cars. Jamaica will give more cars to Coney Island Yard and Coney Island Yard will give less cars (R68s).*

 

- (E) will be serving R68s and R160A/B's

- (F) will be serving R46s and R160A/B's

- (R) will be serving R46s (Half) and R68s (Half)

since the R142's have permanent strip maps. the IRT division has no changes

if they had FINDs then the

(1)(2)(5)(6) would be fully R142/R142A

(3)(4)(7) would be fully R62/R62A

 

I think these assignments are really feasible :cool:

Not really, the (L) needs the special R160 sets that it has because it uses CBTC and has only one person per train operation, the 32s cant do that because they lack the technology and the full width cabs to properly open and close the doors.

(6) R22 (7486-7675) R29 (8570-8687)

R21 (7050-7155)

(7) R33/36wF 

 

Current will only change the 1/4
