Is it just me, or is the subway going back to the 70's?

Recommended Posts

well as you guys now there were slants and mods mixed on the (C),the (A) had slants and the (A) didnt use then since like the 1970's,and the (E) line is using R42's!? whats next the R40 back on the (R) or (E)?

um those trains were always running in service. It's not like the MTA suddenly took them out of storage and started running them.

I don't see it that way. As more cars from the R160 order come in, its freeing more of the older cars. Might as well run them on the lines that need them.

they get switched when a new fleet comes in, if the R160 wasnt here, everything would remain the same, For Example when the R188 comes in that would mean we may see some r62s on the (2)(4)(5)(6) possiably

 

now that attracts loads of RFers..

 

and yes NYTransit, when i see the R40 on the (C) i feel like im in the 80s with the (CC) and (AA) lol now we gonna see 46s bk on these lines :)

When the R-188's come on the (7)<7>.....the R-62A's will not go to the (2)(4)(5) or (6) lines.....most likely it will go to (1) or (3) lines if they don't get new trains!

im going to guess then that the R62 Original will under go retirement? Cuz theres going to be wayyyyy to many R62As for the (1)(3).. I hope to see at least a few on the (5)(6) , especially the (6) of course, hey u never knw:)

R62 and R62A's won't run on the (2)(4)* (5) and (6) because there are enough R142 and R142A's to take up the whole fleet of those lines.

 

*I do see some R62 occasionally on the (4) and some R62A as well. The (4) is currently the only line using more that one subway car model, R62, R62A, R142, and R142S.

 

R62 won't retire anytime soon, I don't think. The only one I've heard of an R62 that retired were the ones that crashed in Union Square, a (4).

The (4) line has three types of equipment in it's fleet. R62, R142, and R142A.The car equipment assignments for both divisions were just posted for the new pick effective 12/21/08. Anything is subject to change of course. Also note that there is no mention of an R 142S type anywhere. The cars in the 1101-12.. + series are R142 cars as per Car Equipment.

The ones that was in the set that crashed was 1341-1345, and 1346-1440. The ones that was scrapped was 1345, 1346, 1347, 1349, and 1440. Everything else that was left was made into a 5 car set, which is 1431-1432-1433-1344-1348.
