Re: It's officially announced: F Express service in Brooklyn

Operational in that the Jamaica and Coney Island facilities could handle the R44/R46 fleets. IIRC by 1976 the entire E and F fleets were comprised of R46s. Political in that powerful politicians in Queens and Brooklyn made sure that the E and F got the newest equipment. To be more blunt the E and F served areas that were heavily Jewish and Italian, two large important voting blocks at the time.
