I saw that same set on the (E) myself at Sutphin deadheading to Parsons/Archer. A pic of it leaving Sutphin is in my subway photo thread.

yes.. and it said Jamaica

Nice!

Nice picture, is it rare for a R46 to be on a (E)?

Technically yes, since they use primarily R32s and recently, R42s. They were using the R46s as well, I think because of the AC units??? I forgot.

The R46 looks best on the E. The blue bullet goes best with the silver body to my eyes. Hope they stay on the E this time, tired of them feeling like teasers. And yes, the do have a quiet ride.

I think the destination sign for Jamaica bound R46 (E) trains is:

(E) JAMAICA CENTER

(E) QUEENS EXPRESS

but I'm not sure if there's a via 53 St sign like the ones on the (V).

 

And boy do the R46s look good on the (E). I really don't like the R42s that much. Used to seeing them on the East NY lines.

The reading of the R-46 (E) is:

Jamaica Ctr

Parsons/Archer

Queens Bl Exp

 

or

 

World Trade Ctr

The reason why the R46's were on the (E) was because of the saturday G.O with the (F) skipping van wyck and supthin bivds and there were 2 R42's on the (R) with 1 R32 and there was a lot of R32's on the (F) as well as the 2 sets of R46's on the (E). The storage tracks had to be used so they had to scatter the stored R32's,R42's and R46's along the (E),(F) and (R) lines so that the (F) would run Express between Union Turnpike and Parsons Bivd. And Also because of the Broken Rail incident south of Farest hills ( The Track That leads to the yard).
