Re: 42nd Street Shuttle to Jerome?

Posted by Stef on Tue Feb 24 13:46:33 2009, in response to Re: 42nd Street Shuttle to Jerome?, posted by (3) Livonia Ave. Local on Tue Feb 24 12:57:24 2009.

It's true......Was looking at something on the MTA employee only web site called TENS, #4 Line Manager is also responsible for the Shuttle, or so it seems.

A friend e-mailed me to tell me about car assignment changes on the 1,2,3,4,5 and Shuttle.

240th St Yard (1) has acquired 10 single R62A's for the new SF Terminal Service, formerly of the Shuttle

239th St Yard (2) loses 5 R142's (6681-85), allotment goes from 385 cars to 380 cars

Livonia Yard (3) is 100% R62, 315 Cars in total

Mosholu (4)(S) received 10 R-142's from elsewhere (from the 5), Cars 7061-7070. 10 R62's from Livonia Yard can be used for 4 service as needed. 18 of the original 28 shuttle cars have been re-assigned from Livonia to Mosholu. 10 cars for the base shuttle service and 8 spares. Not enough cars to put them into regular 4 service.

I was fortunate enough to catch the site of a 3 car shuttle at Jackson Middle some days ago. I believe, but cannot actually confirm that the set was coming from Track 4.

E.180th St Yard (5) lost 10 cars to Mosholu (7061-70) and received 5 cars (6681-85) from 239th St Yard bringing the total assignement from 385 Cars on the 5, to 380 Cars instead.

Lots of interesting stuff! Many thanx to a friend (you know who you are) for providing that info.
