R32 and R46 going to the B Line???

Recommended Posts

Some people don't understand these words:

 

SUBJECT TO CHANGE

 

The reason why the R42's didn't get moved yet because the R179's started having major issues again. A lot of them are out of service. If the R179 issues hadn't happen, the R42's would have been moved by now and we would have fount out where they went.

Let's put it this way

 

If (L) shutdown happens, we will find today if the mta board votes.

All plans will still go on

R42 to the (B)

100-102 R32's for the (G)

8 car R160's for the (G)

 

If the (L) shutdown doesn't happen

R42's to the (B) but wouldn't count on it, knowing ta they'll scrap em, could easily put 50 R32's instead or just transfer 40 more R46's.

(G) will still go 8 cars but it's likely it would only be NTT'S since it won't see a headway increase and they wouldn't need the R32's. (The G being lengthed was confirmed by NYCT president byford)

 

If the shutdown does happen then yea you'll see 150 Smees at CIY.

Who told you this or are you just assuming? Because most these assignments make no sense. Even though the MTA does make stupid decisions 9 times out of 10, doesn’t mean I expect anyone on here’s theory as to how operation will facilitate.

Lol have you been asleep the past few weeks? 

You don’t even have to read the threads. Just go look at some of the titles in the forum... (L) shutdown is off.

It is. The real question is,

Have YOU been sleeping the past few weeks?

The Canarsie tunnel needs MAJOR repairs anyway. If MTA actually HAS to repair then it shall be done.

Don't be coming at people with retarded questions that you should ask yourself first. Thank

RR503 has made it very clear that he is opposed to the change in plans. I would hardly call has question "retarded." Why don't you start looking back at his posts?

Lemme point you in the right direction — you seem to be having some trouble navigating the forum...

I posted a bunch in the topic created after the call to cancel. Start here, read on. 

For whatever it’s worth, my friend, there’s quite the difference between saying “the shutdown is off” and “I think it’s good that the shutdown is off.” The former is a statement of fact — and is what I said — and the latter is an expression of happiness towards that fact — or not what I said.

Why don't you stop coming at people with needless criticisms and start reading and thinking first? 

There's a difference between stating something and agreeing with something. Next time, before you try to criticize any of us, read the other threads first so you'll have a better understanding of what's going on. 

And @RR503's question isn't "retarded" at all. The only thing it means is that you haven't been keeping up with all the recent news regarding the shutdown as of late.

He's just mad because his exclusives isn't happening. 

It's unknown what's going to happen at this point. 

 

The only this that's going to be different is the (G) going 8 cars and increased (M) service according to byford.  The (C) is still going full length.

 

The (G) might still have a possibility of getting R32's if there isn't enough 8 car R160's to run on the (G). The only difference is that the (G) is likely to keep it's current headway.

 

The (B) should be 100% R46, especially if CI is getting R46's from Jamaica.

That's always been the plan

 

Do the math

If the shutdown had happened

The (G) was going to run every 3-4 mins

The (J) and (M) was going to see service increases 

Meaning more 8 car trains are required.

Even with all the 8 car R179 in service, there would still need to be an increase of R160A-1's for future (M) CBTC on queens blvd. The remaining would go to the (G) to form 8 car trains. There wouldn't be enough R160's to cover the (G). Hence half the R32 fleet would go to CI to supplement the (G) line. 

 

Now that the shutdown isn't happening 

 

The (G) might not even need the R32's, the (G) is still going 8 cars. If there's enough tech trains then there wouldn't be a need for R32's. 

 

This was confirmed by numerous sources but as we all know plans change. 

 

At the end of the day the majority of R32's will still be on the (A) and (C)

Why does this thread even exist? We already have a thread for the swaps...

I have it on good authority that CAF was awarded the contract to refurbish the R38 fleet which is currently stored off the coast of NJ.

I thought most of them were scrapped. I understand the /s but I thought they were not reefed.

As it stands, we don't know where the R32s will be in the future. All we know now is that they are used on the (A)/(C) lines and are stored at the 207th Street Yard. The only existing R38s (2 in total) are used for special transit excursions and are part of a train of mixed cars known as the "Train of Many Metals." You will not be seeing a full 8 or 10-car set of R38s in daily revenue service on any line ever again, as they were officially retired, scrapped, and reefed over 10 years ago.

Ok, yeah I'm mad.

There is plenty of R160A-1 (8 Cars) because the (A) and (C) are getting R179s which displaces R160 (C) trains to the (G) line. The (C) is most likely to get 10 cars.

R32, R160, R68/A will be the (G) for swaps.  I also agree with you for extra (M) service, because Fresh Pond and ENY can get more R160s for (M), (J), (Z) , and (L) from the (C) .
