Thank you for the corrections, this helps a lot, good to know that transit fans are collaborating

 

R160A runs on (L)(M)(N) and (Z) lines

R160B runs on (N) and (W).

 

I did not see an R160A run on the (W) as of yet.

R42's are non existent on the (M)? Then that means that the (M) is the first subway line fully R160!

 

Wow. Lucky (M), fully R160. Interesting! B)

 

The (W) is doing so good with those R160B cars

The (N) is pretty good too

 

The (L)'s R160 cars are doing just fine

The (Z)'s using the R160A's again

The R40 slant car update from last year

 

R40 slant cars no longer run on (N)(Q) and (W) lines

R40 slants still run on (B) and (D)*

 

About 100 R40 subway cars have been dumped, don't remember the numbers though, those have been torn off the subway cars

 

R40#4192-4193 are in the NYC Transit Museum, and I think that's signed up as a (F)

 

There are about just 100 R40 Slant cars left on the Coney Island Yard and signed up only for the (B).

 

*On occasion on Yankee Stadium games only.

I saw one R40 Slant on the (Q) Thursday during the railfan trip but couldn't get a picture. And I also saw an R38 (A) via Brighton Line heading Uptown for some reason and It was in service

As of now I can post line that trains are running on. But I can't post numbers.

 

R32: (A)(C)(F)(E) and sometimes on the (R)

R38: (A)(C)

Mixed R32/38 Sets: (A)(C)

R40S: (B) and on game day use on the (D)

R40M: (A)(B) and on game day use on the (D)

R42: (A)(J) and sometimes (Z)

Mixed R40M/42 Sets: (A) and (C)

R44: (A)(S) and SIRT

R46: (F)(G)(R) and sometimes (E)

R68: (D)(B) and one on the (Q)

R68A: (Q)(B) and very rarely the (N)

R143: Exclusively (L)

R160A: (N)(L)(M)(Z) and once in a blue moon the (J)

R160B: (N)(W) and soon the (Q)

 

Note: If anybody see R160Bs on the (D)(Q) or (R), they are REROUTES of the (N) and/or (W). If anybody sees R40Ms or R40Ss on the (N) and (W) they are being use as extra service during a G.O. Also, the (C) will be getting R40/42 sets by fall.

I need to make some corrections here

 

R68s appear on the (N) and (Q). (Q) has more than one R68 train set on it's line. I see this every day. A rare appearance of an R68 on (N)

There shouldn't be any R40S on (Q). An R38 only sees service on (A)(C) and has no regular service on the BMT Brighton line. You need to double check that R38 train.

Those cars aren't IN the museum, they're part of the museum fleet though but not on display. Last time I seen the pair one was signed up as a (N)ovember, can't remember what the other was signed up as, think it was as a (B)ravo...That set you seen signed up as a (F)ox last week or two weeks ago in the TM was R32's 3352-53...that set is "on hiatus" though with the return of the Arnines...

 

What they stick in there when the SMEEs come out to play is anybody's guess, I'm sure someone knows but they're not telling...
