I know about 12 Z's run per day. About how many are usually R160's?

 

None right now, Z is back to R42's ever since R160's on the (M). That will change soon though.

i've seen R46's on the E lately sadly, they are all ready to totally kill the E

 

the D does not use R40 Slants on a regular basis, the 40 Slants are only on the D when they need extra trains service

 

i've also seen 40 Slants on the Q but that was back in october, don't know if they still do that anymore

 

that R42 on the B i don't think its just one car
