What Happens when you cross an R62 and a R142..

Love it so much, that would make such a one off. R142Bs!

 

I wouldnt call it R142B, seeing that its modified, it can be:

 

R142M

R162 as dave said

R62M

 

I wonder if this will be preserved in the museum, what happen to the R22 Money Train? did that got scrapped?

I think this train was made for the new Taking of Pelham 123. I call it the R162 lol.

 

so did they modify the car (if so, which car #), or did they create it from scratch? i also noticed that the interior is R142ish.

eh, prolly just a modified R62. They had to do this because in scenes of the movie, they have to uncouple the cars, and R142's can't individually be coupled. Just a theory.

I wonder if this thing could actually run.

probably, since it seems to have all propulsion equipment still intact, and they do use r62a singles for service...

Maybe the (MTA) will rebuilt R62/R62A and some will be R142/R142A systle.

 

Some people assumed that the MTA would give those cars a GOH and during that will give upgrades that will turn it into a NTT.

These cars are fine the way they are, no need for them to be changed.

Wow, that is creepy that a R-62 is becoming nearly exactly like a R-142!!!

 

They did it intentionally to render it into a R142A mock-up. It's not that creepy to me, as I heard of many transit agencies turn a set of cars into something totally different. The TTC took a T1 subway car and made it into a "Rocket"... (the mock-up is pretty grotesque, mind me)...

However, the purpose for this transition is quite odd... turning this into a "NTT" for a film! Wow... I think, in the future, when the R62s have ended their lives, this car will be preserved (just like how the French Connection R42s cars are being preserved), but again, it is too far in the future to think about.
