anyone know why its also missing the red stripe on the side?

That's also a sticker. Once again, probably was never replaced

Take advantage of the RFW sets that are left while ya'll still can, the R62As are dwindling down on the (7) rapidly and who knows how the 19xx singles could get arranged and converted to full widths.

Apparently the R188's have a shuttle program between 34 St and 42 St. Back in November when the (7) Shuttle was running, there was one C/R that would always set the train up as a Times Sq 42 St (S) coming from 34 St, and would change to NOT IN SERVICE when going back to 34 St.

Because scrambled fleets.

um No. Because the deal was an R142 (from Mosholo) loan for PM rush hours. Not to have their trainsets mixed in with Westchester

So wait, let me get this straight...

He would set it up as an 42 Street (S) to Times Sq-42 St and then "not in service" to 34 Street...

 

That's not a new program for the Hudson Yards shuttle.He's just tricking the system into thinking its on the 42 Street shuttle...

No what I said are two different programs. There IS a program for a (7) Shuttle, but he just used the trick method you stated instead of the new program.

Saw it this morning too... Is Westchester still short?

I don't know how they could be short when they just got another R62A set.

Yeah it is, but there is one Jerome set (7746-50) that's paired to a Westchester set and is currently running on the (6)

it has the (6) strip maps already? Because if not it's just as strange as pairing a (2) R142 with a (5) R142

The (6) train is short on trains b/c as of now, 42 trains are out of Westchester in total and there's not enough spares

So basically R142A Moshulu set 7746-50 is on the (6) now?

I don't know... I was on the street when I saw it.

Yep, paired with 7621-7625

Is there any proof? I rode the shuttle both weekends and the first weekend (the set was 7331-35, 7316-7909-7320) it was signed up as a <7> LAST STOP and the second weekend I rode it (the set was 7301-05, 7226-7900-7230) the signs were just blank. I could've missed this but the first weekend I was on the shuttle for awhile (both days I went, the first day for longer so it could have been the second day when I went for less time) but I doubt the crew would sign the train to "NOT IN SERVICE", especially since that program displays "NO PASSENGERS" on the interior signs.

I don't know, but hopefully that same C/R will return back in February so we can see. Your right, sometimes a crew wouldn't do it, but this particular C/R kept making announcements saying that it was an (7) shuttle to 34 St.

 

In other news, is 7923 in service?
