Is it true?

Recommended Posts

I don't know about that, it's possible, but wikipedia??? c'mon...

 

Wikipedia isn't just a big pile of lies... but I can't deny the possibility of it not being true. 90 cars left would mean around 9 trains, so the article probably has some truth to it... ah well, they have to go sometime... :P

Due to their scrapping it can be true since they only run on the (:P now, are they like leaving one or two cars for exposition or something?

two cars (set aside) will be saved for the museum. as for the # left i dont know its anyone's guess, last time i got an official figure it was 92, but that was about a month ago.

I'm not an expert on the subway but I've never seen them on anything but the (:P train. Those trains are one of my fav trains. What other lines used them?

Oh thanks for the info. When were they put into service?

 

The R40s were introduced in 1967-69... too bad they couldn't stick around for a few more years, but I guess they got their 40 years like most of the other cars.

you know i thought there was something werird I thought the 38s would retire before the 40s, i guess the 40S are being retired due to its slant ends which could cause danger while crossing or i could be wrong

Yep, that number seems just about right, i see seven to eight sets on the (:P everyday. While the other 10 are used for other purpuses school car, C div service etc....

Wikipedia uses some info from my datasheet. While I have not been getting the numbers of the newest cars being reefed (they're taking off the number plates now), there's at MAX 140 slants left, and I last put thatn umber in around June. Now there's only about 90 slants left, I suppose.

I dunno, I keep seeing R40s on the (:D. In fact, that's all I've been seeing on the (:D lately. I still even see the bloody things on the (W), too! Well the latter hasn't happened for a while...but still.
