Where will the ALSKAW cars go to?

It could be all the way up to 2011 if the Alstom/Kawasaki R-160 Options 'R for Remaining' is set... Now, just wait and see, it is in the Capital Program with the R-179's... So, pretty clear it could come true any minute...

 

The R179s won't come, I bet until R160 Options finish coming.

as you now ALSTOM and KAWASAKI have joined forces to make a new R160 subway cars,but where will the new ALSKAW subway cars go to? and does anybody even when will they will be delivered?

 

They've been doing this already since 2005, IIRC. ALSKAW is not a manufacturer, the cars are still being build under the two separate companies. As of this point, R160 cars are being based out of East New York and Coney Island Yards. The R160A Option Order 1 is, mostly likely, destined to Jamaica Yard. They recently ordered the Option 2 orders for both Alstom and Kawasaki. If everything is alright, production should begin in late 2009 and delivery beginning around 2010.
