Nice, looks like the rollsigns are still the  (brownM) in the brief glimpses in the video unless I'm mistaken.

Why is it 6 cars and not 4?

 

why would you want to stick us with 2 four car trains 24/7 for the next 8 months when six car trains are possible.

Hell it could even be 8 cars, I Don't Care, but 6? That's unusual. The gag is if the MTA retired these R42's like originally planned; how would this M shuttle be operating? With What Equipment?

From my perspective, two reasons:

 

a) To accommodate the Rush-Hour crowd, which will probably start on Wednesday once Christ the King Regional High School is back in session.

b) Towards the completion of the second phase, if something happens to a particular R42 set or two, which is not fixable (since those cars are cut off from the rest of the system), they can isolate those cars and work with whatever is left. Depending on the crowd, and the time of day, they could (worse comes to worse) shorten or lengthen the train if they have to.
