If so, some R32's get another stay of execution since they will have scrapped the R44's and will be short cars, even if the 290 R179's "replace" the 1960's SMEE's. Even at 50 years of age, 5 round-trips a week between Coney island Yard and Chambers Street is all they would have to do, assuming they run it like the TT and call it W.

It also doesn't seem that Prince Andrew is terribly ready to fund R179's or for that matter M-9's.

I also think 64 R-46's ought to go to Staten Island. They would mean 80 R32's retained right there. Though, that means no more 2 or 5 car trains. But when I took it 2 weeks ago, every R44 I encountered had flat wheels, lousy heat, and were filthy inside and out. Not what I expected for cars that have had a low-mileage life in the country.
