Re: R-211 some info

Another wrinkle that some of you hadn't thought of is that if the MTA ever decides to install platform doors at any of its station, the car fleet on each respective division has to be absolutely, positively and completely standardized. Since Eastern Division and IND lines do operate jointly it doesn't do any good to tray to segregate car types of different lengths by line since it can never be anticipated when and if a train from a "75 ft car" line might have to be rerouted to a line that uses 60 ft cars and vice versa. The 75 ft car concept is only good on a system that was specifically designed for them which the NYCTS was not so the return to the IND standard 60 ft car is the only viable option.
