No way, it looks just like the R-142/R-142A.

It looks like an R142/R142A car on the outside, but unlike the R142/R142A cars, it'll probably have the FIND system installed inside.

It will not have a FIND system. It will have a strip map. This is to maintain trainline interoperability of the signage between R188s and R142/As

 

So that's a brand new car, or a renumbered 142?

 

It is a brand new car. Note the lack of decals and trucks. Edited by Dj Hammers

Nice catch. For all of you guys asking, that's a brand new (and the second) R188 car, alongside 7921.

7921 isn't on property yet.

There is no need to get all hyped it's not like the R142's don't look very similar. I was hoping it would be all black on the front and those converted R142's will remain with the red front.

That was posted erroneously. R188 7921 (the insert car) isn't expected to be delivered until October.

 

 

It wasn't posted erroneously, it was posted with information from a Department of Subway source. Which has never lied to me about a car move or delivery.

Then how come it wasn't tested with the converted R188?
