Which R62A have been delivered to Westchester Yard from Corona Yard... I can make a bet R62A #2001 - #2030 should be at Westchester Yard by now...

I am just wondering.. Altogether (6) should have 240 cars R62A.. Westchester Yard need 140 R62A left.. To make it (6) got 380 R62A  and (6) gave up 380 R142A send it to Corona Yard (7) .. Ok how will R62A singles #1901 - #1960 will be delivered.. Which I.R.T line want R62A singles #1901 - #1960.. That I will like to see how Corona Yard will delivered R62A singles.. Who like the idea R62A #1951 - #1955 ( become 5 car unit ) & #1956 - #1960 ( become 5 car unit )... #1951 - #1960 being paired up as 5 car unit... I am glad to see if Westchester Yard will take #1951 - #1955 / #1956 - #1960 ... Is Unionport Yard / East 180 Street yard  is now interested using R62A for Dyre Avenue Shuttle (5)..

Why are the R62A's on the (6) getting full cabs?

 

Conductor controls. The (7) originally operated with a 5 car set on the Manhattan end, and 6 singles on the Queens end. Unlike most lines, the conductor didn't change cabs at the end of the line and he always operated out of the 5 car set. The (6) operates like all the other lines do, and to avoid forcing conductors to cross over into the adjacent car to access the controls, they're enabling the R62A's full width cabs and off side door controls.

Still 2221 - 2225 / 2350 - 2346 does not belong to Westchester Yard.. Westchester Yard are loaning 2221 - 2225 / 2346 - 2350 from 240 Street Yard of the (1)... I can confess I saw 2061 - 2065 on (6) service today.. But I maybe wrong who saw 2066 - 2070 on (7) line service today? I can admit ... I did saw R142A 7641 - 7645 on (4) line service today.. When Westchester Yard return 240 Street yard R62A of (1)  that 20 sets ?.. (6) will still have R142A 7591 - 7640 ( 50 sets ) or they will still have 7591 - 7670 ( 80 sets) When 380 R142A #7211 - #7590 get converted to R188..

Yeah I meant 240st yard. I know those are loans but it's rare to see a full ten car set of them on the (6) since the yard seems to always pair the 22xx or 23xx with Former Corona cars
