No, the R160s in East New York yard are being retrofitted for CBTC usage. To fill the void of these sets Pitkin sent 5 sets of 8 car R32s to ENY. This is the first time R32 ran on the Nassau St line since the 80s, some 30 years ago. In return for the missing sets, ENY is sending non CBTC sets of 160s to Pitkin and 207 st yard to fill the R32 void. There is currently a R160 set on the C line doing non revenue testing.

You mean 207 Street not Pitkin Yard
Pitkin is the (A) R46
207 Street (C) R32
