The pairing between the A and B sets have been going on for quite some time now. Its first pairing was with 8833 - 8837, then 8813 - 8817, then 8729 - 8732. Dont know about the rest.

It's true that those mixed sets are faster. I had heard this last week, and then yesterday someone brought one in on the (N), saying it seemed like it had no governor and when I took it back out, it was notably faster.

Hmm interesting...I wonder mechanically why that is

Also, since I don't want to start another thread on this, and it's related to R160 deliveries (indirectly), why not:

 

There was recently another transfer of R42 to Jamaica. This morning I rode car 4763 on the (E), which I think was the highest number in the set. The whole consist had trains of 475X and 476X so it was probably fresh from ENY. This transfer leaves ENY with 70 R42s, and they only need 40 cars (maybe 48 for spares) for (Z) service.
