First run of the R179 A Train

Recommended Posts

I spent the early part of Sunday morning taking a look at the R179 A train, including its very first run from Euclid Avenue to Lefferts Boulevard. Enjoy!

I'm confused. So the (A) is getting some of these 179 cars too? I thought they were getting the older more modern trains?  211s or whatever the hell that model is with the open gangways.

The R179s will displace the R46s to the C to make the line full length. The R211s will replace the R32 and R46 fleets.

It was also originally planned that the R179s would replace all R32s and R42s but now all remaining R32s not replaced by the R179s will be replaced by the R211s, which will also replace the R46s.
