Re: And the R-179 contract goes to....

the R32s are the only reason why the C is still 8 car trains.

No. As was demonstrated last summer, there are enough R32s to operate both the A and C at 600'. The C, however, is not exactly packed with riders. Full length trains would be nice, but I'd rather see improved headways before full length trains.

[The A and C] both share the same yard

Not really. The C is 207, the A is Pitkin. At any rate, they're totally different fleets. The A doesn't run R32s, and the C doesn't run R46s. Nothing would change after the R179 arrives. Well, nothing except roughly 40 R179s will be in 5 car sets and the C's spare ratio will decline, so the Eastern Division will get R179s as well.
