so when will there be subway swamp.

 

when will 6 line going to give away Rail142A #7211 - #7410,

and exchange for Rail142A #7671 - #7810 , or Rail142 #7061 - #7180

, #1101 - #1250.

 

I believe that in 2016 - 2022?

 

when Rail188 get delievered.

 

the line that might need Rail188 is:

 

2 , 4 , 5 , 6 , 7 line

 

and 2 , 4 , 5 , 6 line going to give away the Rail142 , rail142A

 

to 1 , 3 , 7 line

 

you will consider that Rail142's had run 2 , 4, 5 , 6 line since 18 years(6)(5)(4)(2):o:rolleyes:

Your post is kinda puzzling.. :confused::confused::confused:

 

Well i'll try to answer your question

 

 

1) We don't know when R188's will come

 

2)The (2)(4)(5) and (6) lines won't need R188's, their R142/A's would only be 18 to 20 years old around 2016-2022

 

3)Why should the (1)(3) and (7) get hand me down R142/A's? Most likely whatever train that replaces the R62/A will go to the (1)(3) and (7) lines.

The reason why the (2),(4),(5),(6) got R142 Because they Had the Oldest cars R26-R28 while the (1),(3) had R62 & R62A. The (6) Had a Mix of Both so they Killed 2 birds with 1 stone replaced the (4),(6) Cars to give the (7) new Cars untill the Next order Comes Around.

i dont get it, if the (6) was entirley R62A, (3) was R62A and (4) was R62, before 2001,

 

the (3) R62A (all except a few sets) went to (7) , where did old the (6 ) R62A went, maybe a few went to the (7) but if its all thats too much =S

 

they could of sent it on the (3) or sumin

I thought the R in the contract numbers stood for Rapid. As in RTO. Not all car contracts are for Revenue cars like the R95, R127 and R134s.

 

And the R188s are way down the road. Like after 2013. And they WILL be Flushing exclusives. Designed for 11 car service only available on the (7).

Lets be a little realistic here. this is how wrong rumors start.

The "R" DOES stand for revenue...

 

Doesn't mean that's what they're used for though...

To answer your question about the R188, it will be only for the (7)<7> line. There will be no swap, and they will be have CBTC technology (just like the R143 and R160/160A). The (7)<7> is next in line for CBTC, and that is why they will be going there. They aren't ordering anything additional for any other line(s). Besides the trains on the 7 have another 20-25 years to go, so TA will end up with a large surplus of A Div. trains, and will just send the Bomb R62As, elsewhere.........

there 1 car missing on 7 line Rail62A that #1909.

 

R62a #1909 was Derailed south of Hunts Point Avenue on Track M, 11/24/1996. 1909 was a total writeoff due to mid-carbody damage and scrap in 2001.
