Not in Service R68

Recommended Posts

Today I was railfanning. I was at 59th Street ((A)(:((C)(D)(1)) and I saw an R68/A on the opposite side of the tracks (downtown). The front said Not In Service and the sides and back were G rollsigns. I think it was 5-8 cars long. Does anyone know about this? Is it going to the (G) via the (F)?? Thanks, jimmy7train.

Doesnt the (G) use the R68's that are for the (B), (D)? If i could guess, it was probably a put in or borrowed that was from Concourse

If the sides had rollsigns, then it had to have been at least a 4-car train. If it was an odd numbered set [single units] they would've been for the Franklin Av shuttle which don't have rollsigns.

Could just be a regular old transfer, can't take too much stock of what the rollsigns says. Things are moved about the system for a variety of reasons.

How about this theory. 4 car R68. G side signs because that is the line where the cars were last used Train went uptown from CIYD with 4 other cars that were dropped off at CCYD, the 4 cars you saw returning to CIYD.
