Perect list except for what RTOMan pointedo ut. Usually there's no R46s on the (E) (they're VERY rare and don't even run except for once in a blue moon...literally) but with the recent news there's 5 sets over the weekend.

The (4) uses R-142S or mixed pair R-142A/S

R142S is R142A, just not referred distinctly by (MTA) as such

 

The (4) uses R-142S or mixed pair R-142A/S

 

R142S on the (4)<4> that's just extra orders of the R142A and there's no difference between an R142A and R142S

IMO to me it is....I go by the car numbers so anything after 7730 to me is a R-142S

That's a good thing, at least the R142A/S have different numbers.

The (E) is apparently now running R32, R42 and R46.

 

Does anyone know the status of the cars on the (A) + (:) and if those are correct?

Yes, that's correct, 7731-7810 are R142S and only hit the (4) line every day.

R42's hit the (E)? Now that's really something, R42's haven't hit the (E) since the 1970's.

no there's still slants

 

I just checked pics from the (:) and you are right they are still there as well as the other cars.

 

I wonder how long those (B) slants will be there since it was said that the slants will be gone.

 

Things will get more interesting with car swaps as more R160 come in.

As most people are saying these days, there's no longer any R42's running on the (M). It's all R160A cars. :P R160A is now hitting the (J) line too.

 

This month alone the (J) and (Q) lines have the sharpest increase of R160A and R160B cars. The (Q) and (J) have about four or five sets each running on each line, the (Q) may have more, just seen as much as 8 sets, and highest numbered R160B on (Q) was 9022. Highest numbered R160A for (J) was 8512.

What happens when the R160s are fully operational on lines with the R68 + R68A?

 

I wonder where the R68 will go.

 

Seems like the J + Q is where all the cars are moving to right now as far as we know.
