Nice! Isn't <R> the late night shuttle (R)?

 

No the <R> was the former Nassau Street <R> Which ran from Chamber Street on the BMT Nassau Street line to 95th street, It was killed in the late 80s with the use of the (M) and (R) together

 

anyways thanks all

 

From wiki:

 

The Nassau Street specials were through-routed from 95th Street to 168th Street in Jamaica as RJ. Under the first color scheme, RR was colored green and RJ was red.

 

The RJ service only lasted a few months before it was cut back to Chambers Street and renamed as additional RR rush-hour peak-direction service. In May 1986, when double letters were eliminated, RR service became R. R service was assigned the color yellow (because it used the BMT Broadway Line), and the special Chambers Street rush-hour R service was brown (using the Nassau Street Line).

 

Effective May 24, 1987, the north terminals of the N and R were swapped, taking the R along the IND Queens Boulevard Line to Forest Hills–71st Avenue. The change was made to give the R access to the repair facility at Jamaica Yard.

 

When the IND Archer Avenue Line opened on December 11, 1988, E service was rerouted along to Jamaica Center–Parsons Boulevard, and the R was extended to replace the E to Jamaica–179th Street. At the same time, the special rush-hour service to Chambers Street was removed
