That’s been there for a while now

On one of the R188s, 7848. Seems like they're expanding this demonstration to other sets

You can say goodbye to the 1921-2-5 set that's on the Shuttle as it'll be added on with 1908 and 1910: 5-car set

*1906 and 1907 are the only R62As for Corona work helping EP R134 units to clean up along the Flushing line.

Interesting to see the active Pelham cars being used for refuse service, like 1901 with its 6 line rollsigns and green yard sticker now covered in newspapers like the other refuse cars.

So in that youtube video with UWB radios, did I see a forward in-cab camera? FRA style. Kind of interesting NYCT would adopt forward cameras for post suicide litigation. What is NYS law anyways for NYCT liability payout to family if someone gets killed under the train? All suicides get payout or only if you are pushed under the train (murder)?

All five of these R-62A's were discovered on Monday at LIV, basically untouched.

Reputedly the two work motors (1908, 1910) need a good bit of tidying up before they can re-enter passenger service.

Plus, someone seems to think there might be a rearrangement once at WES to create 1921-1925 in order with 1922-1924 as middles.

PLUS, 1922 is configured as a Cuomo car for the Shuttle.  Will it be restored to normal?  <who knows?!?>

1908 did return to passenger service, but on the 42nd St Shuttle last month. It was coupled with 1921-2 and 5 b/c they need an extra car for Track 3.

So that would be a first AFAIK, a 3+1 combo.  I take it the set up was 1921-1922-1908-1925?

It seems the assignment situation is presently at a standstill.

Yes, that's it. With its purple sticker.

Speaking of stickers, for some reason it seems as if westchester yard crews have stopped putting there new green ones on the rest of the R62As that still don't have them on the (6). I wonder why they don't continue with that.

Just to note, over 40 of Westchester's R62As have been SMS'ed with brighter lighting, loop poles and the obvious Helvetica one-lined rollsigns, similar to the sets on the (1). Don't know yet if the R62A set's on the 42nd Shuttle would be SMS'ed going forward, specifically (under body work/truck overhauls and cleaning each car bonnets).

Oh you didn’t know? MTA is very inconsistent with aesthetics and cosmetics. There’s no organization in terms of which sets get what service at the barns.  Look at Jamaica’s R160’s verses Coney Island’s R160’s...
