Where can I find the R38s?

Recommended Posts

I am planning to find some R38s when photographing tommorow. Where can I find them? Are there any at Concourse Yard or at 207 Street Yard?

 

They should be at 207.

There is still a set running on the (C) line I saw it again today

 

i also saw it today, but i am certain that the entire fleet of R38s are longer on the (NYCT)'s active revenue list, so the odds of finding an R38 are very slim. they are now only used if the R32s need maintence. those cars are considered "retired" now.

They will be gone once more R160As go in service on the E. Then the R32s from Jamaica would be sent to 207 and clear out any remaining R38s and slants.

Well, the remaining R-38's are possibly gonna be used as 'spares' for the Museam Fleet... I am pretty sure the remaining R-38's will be used like the RedBirds or may possibly be used for a final rail-fan trip like what I said (R-32, R-38, R-40, R-40M and R-42 coupled together)... I would love to see it on some time like Summer trip, :(!

 

Only 2 will be kept. The others may be used for work or might be as well drowned.

maybe the R38s are used as a reserved fleet only.

1991 Long Island Bus Orion V are usually used as a reserved fleet.

Yup, I agreed asd said on another thread quote "I know, I guess the other may be used for Work on BMT/IND Lines while the retired RedBirds go on the IRT for safety purposes..."

 

What do you mean safety issues? A division cars can travel on B division lines. It's not the other way around.

I was only afraid of people falling between the RedBirds and Platform if the attempted to give the RedBirds a touch, :(! I know B Div cars cannot go on the A Div...

 

Why would people touch a work car?

Yeah... lol

 

AWWang, A Div. Spec cars have been in work service on the B div. for years. So far I haven't heard of any incident of someone touching it and falling though. :) :eek: :cool::(

You guys don't get it... I give up explaining so I won't have to post like a crazy guy... Same for you two...

 

Okay then, Maserati proved it never happened so I was rather guessing too much...

 

It CAN'T happen. People aren't supposed to enter work trains, not just getting close to them.

I saw an 8 or 10 car R38 set heading to Pitkin Yard while I was at Jay Street today. I guess that since that set is not going to 207th shops at this time, they could be saved for work service.

Put it this way:

 

If the train doesn't display the route you want and the doors open up, don't go near it. :-P

If the R38 cars wern't on the active revenue list,you wouldn't see one on

the road.so they are not retired as of yet,but they will be.
