How many R46s are left on the R?

Considering that last weekend they only ran one, I would expect none this weekend.

Enjoy.

But some people subscribe to the theory "The cheaper it is, the better it tastes".

The dough on those 99 cent slices is horrible.

Carry on!

Or I should say "Eat on".

So many Siemens (R) trains out today. I’m not used to it.

I think they are split between three lines ((E)(F)(R)). So whatever amount shows up on the (R) one day is random depending on how many run on the (E) and (F) lines that same day. Someone correct me if I am wrong...

There must be a ton of R46 (G) trains then.

It really did feel kind of like a mid 2000s throwback, really more like 2007 when the R160s only first began to sprinkle the (Q) fleet... except for the R46s.
This is what I counted in total today (There obviously might have been more than I counted) on the (Q):
7 R46 (Including the single train that ran as a shuttle from Brighton to Coney Island due to a GO)
3 R68 (2 in a row even...)
2 R160B

I got on one R46 to Brighton, and back on an R68. Feels weird to think that this is the new norm again.

3488-89, 3654-55, 3448-49, 3708-09, and 3672-73 have been running on the (A) a lot for the past few days this week. 

Whom ever made up that rumor about the R32’s being down to 80 cars is a tool. The consists listed on the so called retired list are IN SERVICE as I type. I operated in them. 3894/3895 etc!

On weekends, fewer trains with the usual 8-10 minute headways. 22, However, is the overall total for the rush hour.

Any time I see an R68 train on the (Q), it really feels like a throwback. I remember riding them there on a regular basis back then.

I would be surprised if they don’t split the Siemens cars between all three lines. It’s not like there are fewer door openings and longer dwell times like with the R46s.

Okay. I’m just wondering something. 
 

I love trains as much as anyone that isn’t a common person. I was excited seeing the new HRTs and LRTs LA has and is getting, I had to contain my excitement seeing the old deep tube stock and the Bombardier S8’s in London, and the trams in Paris made me happy I stayed in Clichy instead of some other arrondisement (This hotel, by the Boulevard Periphique, if you’re interested.).

And of course, all the NTTs are better than everything else (NYCT) runs today.

And I was the same way about buses when I saw the new Routemasters and Mercedes models in London and the Renault/Irisbus Agora in Paris. And when the Orion V models here and back home in Sacramento were retired.

I didn’t moan or lose my faculties over any of it. 
 

So I’m wondering why that’s happening here - since the R211s are going to be produced, and the R179s are still being delivered - both in the next few years. Is this a NYer thing? Because it seems like these things of metal and electrics are causing a lot of “fights” and snipes.

Help me understand?

The HR4000 looks so good!

I Wish that we could have that seating configuration at our trains though.

Wow. So with that being said, there's still over 100 of them running right?

The roster still shows 100. So that's a yes.

@Calvin is correct and yes there’s about 108 cars that are active. There’s been a few cars that have been stripped for parts indeed. I’m going to leave y’all with a hint. 3381 doesn’t have rollsigns... carry on. ;)

I counted only for the time I was on the line, it doesn't mean I had the time to get to all of the trains as I stated (there obviously were more trains) in my last post.
