Thanks for the [sad] info. 4330-4331 was running as the lead pair on Saturday. It had its time on the (C) as well.

IMO, the R32s will be the last to retire out of the Div B older "SMEEs"

 

Smees. Sounds like speeds. :cool:

Looks like they are running out of R32 parts. I heard that the MTA stripped 2 sets of Phase Is out of service recently.

Oh dear gosh, my lord goodness! I am going railfanning tomorrow on the (A) Line to catch the R-40 Slants!

 

Nice pix anyways, :P!

Like when? I am available from 3:00PM to 9:00PM. Since, I am with Vinster and BVEGuy from 10:00AM to 2:00PM.

Yeah, we're planning to get a RFW on an A on Central Park West at that time.

I just saw an R40 slant (A) today... I can't believe they'll be gone soon. You know whats weird, I'm at 59th street Columbus circle every school day and have not once seen an R46 (A) train. I feel left out! :(

It's still kind of rare, I mean, there are only 3 sets floating around.

True, do you know how many trains the (A) runs? (e.g. the (N) runs 23 trains)

 

The (A) has 38 runs during the Daytime. I think it's half that during the Late Nights when they go to Far Rockaway.

So, do you think we can meet up at TSQ around the (A)(C)(E) Mezzine or would I have to travel to another station?

 

Too bad I got school this week. DAMN Trevor Day School!!

wonder why they would transfer the 2 car R46 sets to pitkin first ahead of the rest of the 4 car sets, maybe for the (G) service cuts?

I have no idea, but from observation, they are pushing the higher number cars to Pitkin, which would include the pairs.
