LOL. Yes,they were "magically" converted from 75 foot car trains to 60 foot trains. For every 75 foot V train of R46 trains (the equivalent of 10 car trains of 60 footers),it was transferred an 8 car trainset of 60 foot R160's (8 car trains of 60 footers). That left 2 extra 60 foot cars for EVERY Trainset of 75 foot cars from the v left over.

I think the point VictorM is making is that the orange M required many more trainsests which could only be 60' cars, but eliminating the V only made 75' trainsets available. Hence, there was a shortage of 60', 4 car trainsets.
