2141-2145 on its way to Westchester

More like going back lol. That set was the first along with 1741-1745 to go to the (6) back in early 2013 as a 5-car single until coming back to Corona.

What's the last R142A to be converted?

 

R142A 7581-7590 should be the last 10-car train to be converted at Kawasaki. That will be happening pretty soon.

First convert/factory mix set (that I've seen). 7881 is with 7486. Videos coming soon.

 

So they've finally coupled together the converts & factory sets?

Yes, they have. Here's a video I took (skip to 4:25 when I switch from 7881 to 7486)

Really? I saw 7833-43 recently and they were together. 7485 was with 7446 last time I saw it.

In case anyone's interested, 7811 is really having some major programming issues. It keeps thinking its a <7> to Queensboro Plaza when the rest of the set is programmed to the (7) to Mets - Willets Point. When the rest of the set is programmed to the (7) to 111 St, 7811 thinks it's a (6) to Brooklyn Bridge. This car is out of control

Ok I know this a stupid ass question and I know I'm suppose to be the tech guy here, but I'm still confused about how the R188's function and are converted.

 

R188's are paired like this, correct?

A-C-B-B-B-A+A-B-B-B-A

 

So let's take the set 7776-7785 (hypothetically since it isn't getting converted.)and break it down.

 

Every car is uncoupled and converted into their R188 counter part, except for the B car's. Then a C car is inserted between 7776 and 7777 to make a 11 car train, correct?

 

The main reason why a C car is added is to add an additional car to make a 11 car set and because C cars are needed to have CBTC operations, correct?

Were 1921-1925 on the (7)? They have the led signs but have 240 St stickers, and I know that a few 240 sets went on the (7).

before yes. As of now, its out of Westchester/Pelham Line (6)
