Two R46 (R) trains are out today: 5772/5734 and 5498/5574

Is 5498, 5574, 5734, 5772 the final R46 sets at Jamaica Yard?

5802-5805's whereabouts are unknown at this time, so it is a possibility.

No it is not. There was just 3 on the line, just not in a continuous pattern.

Don’t respond to this guy, he never knows what he’s talking about. I’m surprised the moderators haven’t removed him yet...

Down to 58 on the R-32s as of yesterday.  March 12.

Beware of some serious disruption next week.  If so, the R-32s might wind up on the street sooner than expected!:huh:

Some nasty planning ahead depending on how deep goes the Force Majeure (i.e. Coronavirus rider droppage).  One option is "Forever Weekend" scheduling on subways.  Otherwise a long-term subways closure may not be out of question as events require.  The need for R-32s seem to be leaving us all!

Note that WMATA is already full-time weekend scheduling and MBTA will be following next Monday.  Here we go...

Does anyone know how many R32s will be on the C tomorrow 

0

There will also be 0 R179s on the (C) also

The (A) however, will most likely have a set or 2 of R32s, with the remaining sets being R46s or R179s

Now honestly would be a good time for (MTA) to do some heavy maintenance and possibly go all local.

Could even make a big dent in CBTC installation prep or actual installs.
