Since about Late last month/early this month the R46 has shown up on the F. This is due to the summer pick.

The R32s can pop up on the (A), just not as frequently as the R46 on the (F). An R46 was placed on the (C) because of the July 4th holiday. The MTA decided to increase service after the fireworks.

Besides the (N) and (Q) using a few more R68(A)s than before, not much else has changed.

Here's some more detailed info.

1: Any R160s that ran on the R are now gone.
2: The F now has a few sets of R46s assigned to it (not including put-ins, which I have heard have recently been usually R46 sets)

To add-on what Dj said just because the (R) has no assigned R-160's doesn't mean 1 or 2 or a few can pop up any day b\c that is Jamaica's equipment so we shouldn't see any threads saying 160's are back on the (R).
One day there may be more 46's on the (F) which means a few more 160's on the (R).But everyone is correct.
Don't be surprised to see 160's on the (R),46's on the (F),R68/A on the (N)(Q)*more of a chance on weekends due to R-160's getting breaks b\c mileage* R32 (A) and 46 (C) can happen anytime*most likely equipment shortage* could be a stalled or broken down train.

I heared somewhere that the extra R46 on the (G) were placed on the (F), and some R160 On the (F) were placed on the (R), during weekdays, there is at least one set on the (R) that ive seen,

Its likely. Those R46s are just sitting in the yard, might aswell couple up two sets together and dash em on the (F)

How about the new train order?
And when will the R142/A be moved to the 7 or something like that?
