R142A 11 cars

Recommended Posts

this photo does not prove R142/R142As can run in six-car sets. for all we know, that last car might be a single one intentionally coupled to the full train set. you cannot trust anything in a railyard because workers tend to fiddle around with the cars for reasons i do not know. if i recall, i remember seeing an R68 coupled to an R40 at the Coney Island Rail yard a while back.

oh here we go again with this crap.

back in 03, the MTA tested both R142 and R142A sets on the (7)<7> in 11 car sets. but they determined that there were third rail problems that rendered both types of stock inoperable on the line. this problem has since been remedied, but R142/A's wont run on the line again until there is CBTC on the line, and it will be in the form of up-converted R188s.

EUREKA! now i've figured it out...

the entire set has to be R142A because if you look at the R62A set on the left, the roof has motor blower intakes, somethink that the millenium stock lacks.

Those are all R142A's. Well, Except the one in the middle. The R142S. Yes, there are singles of the R142A Class.

There are no single unit R142 or R142A cars,all of them are 5-car units.
