You would probably never have expected this:

Someone from MEF TransitXpress Transit Forums took a photo of a missigned R44 currently stored at Concourse awaiting retirement. R44 Z train, eh? Never would have expected this.

The person claims it was car 5333

So they are retiring R44s. The question remains: some or all?

The R110A's are over there now too no room for them anymore at 239 due to the GOs over in that side of town.

What does that mean "going to storage" where?

I actually seen a full R44 train that was out of service passing by the other day going uptown, and it looked beat up, so they probably was retiring it.
