That's the plan.

A trains regularly deadhead uptown to resume service, so those R44s are not necessarily going to storage. However, 64 R44s have been retired already, bringing the R44 fleet down from 272 cars to just 208.

I read in the of the city's free news papers yesterday that the MTA is trying to buy more cars, not sure if its more R160's or R179's

That's referring to the R179s and R188s. The R179s are for retiring the remaining R32s and R42s after the R44s are all gone while the R188s are for CBTC on the 7 line. However, these car orders are years away.

Wow! 208 cars left on R44s, still plenty more in service. Good because I don't want all of them to be retired yet. Why can't they keep the cars that are still in good shape? Because I don't think that they're all in bad shape, some are good, and some are bad.

i could somewhat picture the A/C being all R46's from the R,F and later the would be old V lines, while the R could get the future R179's..(which are now said to be 60ft and not 75ft as once thought) but for now.. i think by fall U could see all A's as R46's + the C R32's with the good left over R44's in storage for a as needed bases

I saw more R160s on the George Washington Bridge last night being delivered by trailers. The numbers were 9971, 9972, and 9973; I couldn't see the others.

On another note, why were these cars delivered by truck? It seems a very inefficient way to bring rolling stock into the system. I recall seeing new cars in the 1980s arriving by ship in Brooklyn and being rolled out into the freight tracks off the piers that connect at 39th Street onto the West End line. It would seem that the current method leaves a very large carbon footprint and must cost a fortune to deliver one by one.

Just a few thoughts.

The damage the R44's have can not be seen by just looking at the car. There is internal frame damage.

They are delivered by truck cause they come from upstate NY.
