R143 8277

Whatever happened to R143 8277-8280?

Recommended Posts

I've heard that ever since 6/21/06, that set's been out of service. What did they do to it. Just asking, although I'm pretty sure the MTA just cannibalized that set for parts because they decided that 8277-8280 was permanently inoperable.

No.

 

The set has been undergoing repairs ever since it went out of service. 8278 was repaired and paired back up with 8279-8280. 8277 had to most damage to its body since it was the one that smashed into the bumper, so the repairs are taking longer because of the amount of damage and because it's a New Technology Train, so there's a whole lot of other stuff they need to work on before it goes back in service.
