Nice catch, although not your video, thanks for posting. The current (7) fleet is fine the way it is.

I like how the LCD screens said Willets Point Shea Stadium lol. Looks like that will be the first thing they change on the (7).

I think he means since Shea Stadium is no longer called Shea Stadium. It's Citi Field now.

The station is called Mets-Willets Point.

I think that's what he meant earlier.

They want the (7) to be CBTCed, that's the whole point. And heck knows when those guys will retire.

GUYS. I hate when people say the R188 is to retire the R62/A's, because it is simply not true. The most of the "R188" cars are actually CBTC-converted R142A's from the (6). If the R188 actually happenes, the (6) and (7) switch fleet. The (7)'s R62A's go to the (6), and the (6)'s R142A's go to the (7).

You've nailed it man. Thank you, they are not retiring anything. They are just MODIFIED cars that are meant for CBTC. They will only displace the R62As to another line. That's it. Nothing's getting reefed.

i thought the R142A was already made with CBTC,and it said 23 new subway cars for the IRT,(R188). why does the MTA need to modify the R142A if it already has CBTC

Yea, I don't think the MTA would retire the 62/A's, considering the fact that there relatively young, just a little over 20 years old.

The R142A doesn't have CTBC. Ask the T/O's, they'll confirm that. And 23 new cars will not retire anything.
