Re: Rush hour J to 9 Av

LOL. There is NOT a "net surplus" now, because the R44's were retired. All what we said is that the M/V combo CAUSED a net surplus in equipment, which caused the R44's to be retired. The R44's could not be retired had the M/V combo not taken place. So we got rid of 100 R44's, 100X75 equals 7500 length of trains. 50 R42's were not retired 50X60 equals 3000 length of trains. The M/V caused a surplus of equipment allowing them to retire the R44's (yes, that also meant that instead they kept some R42's). There is still a surplus that the M/V caused, in which they were able to retire 100 R44's, 4500 feet length of train more than if they retired the R42's instead.
