    Earlier this week, two newly refurbished R160 train sets with a new exterior look and increased standing room entered service on the E line. Here car 9158 sits at Jamaica Center.
  9. A friend of mine posted the cover page of the operator's guide for the MTA's XN60s on FB. The fleet numbers are now 1016-1025, rather than 1000-1109. The VINs of the first five XN60's are: 1016: 5FYC8YC06HB051969 1017: 5FYC8YC02HB051970 1018: 5FYC8YC04HB051971 1019: 5FYC8YC06HB051972 1020: 5FYC8YC08HB051973 I don't have the photo of the cover page on me now but I can find it if you need it.

    R68A #5160 leads a Bay Ridge bound R train at 77th Street. This set ran on the R because of a shortage of available R trains at Jamaica Yard. It's believed to be the first time an R68A has run on the R.

    A shortage of available R trains at Jamaica Yard led to to this R68A set from Coney Island doing two peak round trips, one in the AM and one in the PM. This is believed to be the first time a R68 or R68A has run on the R.
