Mockup? Didnt they do one already?

This one is a fully functioning car for MTA big wigs to inspect before the order to proceed on the pilot set is given.

The mockup car does have some functional components, but it is not fully functional.  The purpose of the mockup is to prove as many static tests/designs as possible, so HVAC, software, doors, etc.  In addition to build quality and TS compliance, the MTA also looks for maintainability of certain components.  The mockup does not have propulsion equipment included (no traction motor, no inverter).  Only the boxes for where the components would go are included, to ensure everything fits together and can be accessed easily.

Just wanted to clear that up in case anyone thinks that car will see service, or run on its own power.

So, what happens to it once they're done with it?

Good question, I’m not entirely sure about the answer, because it depends on the contract.

Maybe donate it to Transit Tech. With the R42s all but retired, they could replace one of the R42s at the school with this R211 mock-up. Not sure what would replace the other R42, though with the R62s and R68s sticking around for the foreseeable future, perhaps it would be good for the school to have one SMEE-generation car and one New Tech-era car.

Nah. Saying this as a Transit Student myself, the trains are barely used and are just for Show for the most Part. Even the RTS that we acquired back in December. So I wouldn’t bother replacing the R42’s until they start being utilized more.

Damn right. It’s kinda annoying to deal with but I don’t mind it. Sounds like you weren’t able to make the best of your time there.
