First of its To Be determaned, lets not jump to conclusion about the (M) Being cut. And what do u mean M/V combanion. The R160 fits the (M) perfectly. especially as it does more service the the (V)

As has been said many times before the M/V combo is not going to happen. There are simply so many reasons not to. In short They will not run a 480 foot train through the 53rd St. corridor, they will not run a 480 foot train through Queens Blvd because of crowding, capacity, and safety concerns. Running a 600 ft train they won't be able to platform on the Eastern Division stations so the two are mutually exclusive. It's an idea that train buffs bring up over and over again but it's not very well thought out and it's not going to happen.

I agree too that it'll never happen, even though it would be a great benefit there are just too many variables.

Yeah, you go tell that to the MTA, Chipper. Especially when they can't even handle their own budget and are thinking about adding an extra dollar to our fare and are planning to blast us with service cuts. Want the M/V merger so badly? Ask the Dreamland Transportation Authority. :(
