Recommended Posts

When I was at 71st ave today I saw this and I was shocke and After I just founded out that the R42's are being in the process of being reefed (I already Knew) The r46's will be on the (A) very soon after all R32's are in pitkin and 207th the r46's will follow:

Their doorsteps have been repaited and it indicates that these R46's will belong to 207th st yard, If yellow it belongs to pitkin, I can't wait, these R46's will start going to pitkin after the R32's are all in pitkin and 207th st

lots of subway cars like R44/R46/R68/R68A/R62/R62A are having the steps being repainted and some parts repainted.

I highly think that they are for the C, not the A. At least since the last of the 60" SMEEs go, the C would become full length.

The R42s should've gone first, not the R38s. Big mistake!

Very funny and I will sell you the Brooklyn Bridge for $10!

 

But I can give him a better deal, The Williamsburg Bridge for $5.

You can't beat my deal. Buy the Manhattan Bridge and get the Queensboro for free.

Sorry! However when I am laying up my train I do program my R46 as a (A) Train just to see if it hits the message boards as proof R46's are going to the (A)

Dave: Don't spill the beans now, hit up subchat and here with "proof" and watch the foam hit the fan.

Subwayguy: Hell with the (K), its getting signed up as a (V) or a <C>. Something cool for "8899".

Yellow D for the win :P

 

Hey that almost sounds like that pic I grabbed down at CI of an R46 signed up as an E..it took a LOT of restraint to not post that on subchat and go "didn't know the (E) was based out of CI" and watch the reactions

A little off-topic now guys but seriously, there is NO R46s going to the (A)(C) anytime in the coming months. If you notice, the R68s on the (D) have red edges too. All R46s are staying at Jamaica untill 2010 when the 32's die. The (A)(C) WILL get them just not soon. The R46s will also take the Farts (a.k.a. R44) off the rails so they can get there much needed SMS. But as of now, NO R46S FOR THE (A)(C).

The R44 is not getting another SMS. They will be replaced by the R179 fleet by 2011 - 2013.

As long as I don't get my beloved R-32s and slant R-40s on the (A) and (C) taken away from me, then i don't mind seeing those big monster R-46s on the a/c. I have an idea. If they do put R-32s and R-40s off the A and C, then put them on the (D)(E)(F)(G)(J)(L)(M)(R)(S)(V)(Z). And put the R-46s on the E. That would be a lot of fun.

They're getting SMS, trust me. :P I recently saw R44s 5227 and 5228 with stainless steel waistlines instead of silver painted ones, like R46s.

I was just about to state this, thank you for pointing this out.

 

The R68s were the first cars to have these red doorstep edges for years, and they arent going anywhere anytime soon, so dont count on the R46s to go anywhere anytime soon as well.

Sry for beinga n00b lol but wat does the painted edge on the door means?

 

The yard it belongs to like the IRT R62s/A under the car numbers.

 

 

And I guess the 46 would go to the (A) seeing that the R44 and 46 are identical with minor mechanical features. Wonder if rkway (S) would benefit with 46s..

To watch where you are stepping I believe, I'm not 100% sure

 

Well, the R-44, R-68 and SIRT cars also have these red footsteps... I don't believe it is a switch... Since, either way, they are going in SMS and may have red footsteps...

 

Which is true, the recent SIRT cars with a entirely new interior, new seats and a whole different exterior has the red paint stuff, some of the older cars have them as well.
