Does anyone know what the build dates are of these cars? I think the first two were built in 2017, and the rest in 2018?...
Pilot pair 9001-9002 2015 build. MTA board meetings reports have the cars built 2015 and undergoing testing at Kobe 2016.
So it seems that 9003-9016 are 2018 units then.

Re: M9 and M9A Procurement & Acceptance

Photos from 9/11. The train went to LIC after finishing its maiden run at Hunterspoint. Also, I'm happy that the BBC code from Flickr is back to the forums.

Re: American Dream Opening and Expanded Meadowlands Rail Service

Phil Murphy should use his business acumen to get the mall to subsidize electrification to the Meadowlands from the junction outside the Bergen Tunnels as a trade-off for service. It is a sin that electrification wasn't more seriously considered when that branch was built. The benefit having high c...

Re: Times Square 42nd St Shuttle Station Renovation

I would expect the R262 (the replacements for the R62/62A) to have 6-car sets for the shuttle.

Re: Metro North WOH Rail Options Using the Tappan Zee Bridge TZB

A reactivated West Shore line would have been nice, the idea being to have people take the WS than driving over to the Hudson lines or highways, but CSX would have a huge problem with commuter trains running in the busy freight corridor. Hoboken would be the terminal, but PATH is getting stuffed as ...

Re: 12-Car Platforms at Mamaroneck and Larchmont

If you use Google Earth, you can measure the platforms with the ruler tool. Both come to about 850 feet.

850 feet/85-feet cars = 10 cars

Re: Update on PATCO Car Rebuild

A little bump on this thread for some questions. Were the cars indeed renumbered exactly in consequential order (201-296 now 1001-1096 and 101-125 now 1101-1125; so that say, 254 is 1054 or 113 is now 1113), or are there mismatches here and there?

Re: CSX-Oak Point/Fremont

468+two 8800s ran light from Queens to Oak Point about 20 minutes ago (10:00 AM). Now 8832+8844 are running with cars from Queens to the Bronx (10:20 AM). Wonder why the two consists were heading up, about 20 minutes from each other.
