would you ever want R142's be repainted in red color scheme.

R142 would consider a rebird car

R142 in 2020 - ? can be paired in 2 car unit
be know as redbird cars.

in 2015? - 2030? in the near future MTA NYCT subway
would probably might say. we dont want a subway car
that should be paired 5 car unit.

all n.y.c subway car should become 1 car unit
or 2 car unit

If R62A or R62's get rebuilded. R62 should not become
5 car unit. It should be known as 2 car unit or 1 car unit

it will cost alot of money maybe. If R62 get rebuilded
and still be 5 car unit.

the design of R62's be 5 car unit it will look ugly

What don't you get, 678a? The GOH program is done and history won't repeat itself without the advent of graffiti. And what 's wrong with 5 car units? It's called simplicity and that's why they're implementing them on the R160Bs and R142/As.

Well of course, the cars being retired now are at least 40 years old, they are too old to be rehabbed. Though I'm sure they could be fixed up to run a few more decades, but the MTA decided that they would be better off buying new trains than to fix up older ones.

The 473 R142 or 142A will be converted to R188 and there would be 23 new R188.
