That is all. Sometimes the R142 cars the (2) uses has card maps for the (5) line, due to the (2) and (5) swapping cars at Flatbush Avenue during Rush-hours.

R142's often say "LAST STOP" because either the conductor or the operator sometimes forget to fix the displays in time. This also is an issue with the R142A, R143, R160A and R160B cars too.

 

Nice.

Thanks a lot.

You have that correct! Good observation, Same thing goes with the (5), the (5)s turn into the (2)s

 

Nice pics. The R142s are 8 years old and still rolling strong. :tup:

 

Yes they are, they'll last for a long time! :)

To answer your question, Flatbush Avenue is the common stop where the (2) and (5) swap the R142 cars, regardless of their strip maps. I I believe that the (2) and (5) swap for each other cars at the 239 yard as well in the Bronx. A few times I've seen that yard, I've seen some R142 cars signed as a (5), so the (2) and (5) swap for each others cars in two places. near Nereid Avenue in Bronx and Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn.

 

I consider the (2) and (5) brother and sister of the system, since they're together in Bronx, go their different ways in Manhattan, and meet up again in Brooklyn.
