42st shuttle maintenance cycle

Post by ajp » Mon Jun 17, 2019 8:18 am

what the the average mean time between shuttle consist exchanges on the shuttle for maintenance cycles?
dare i assume that they don’t wrap the trains in place but in some yard then exchange them also?

The shuttle cars have major work and overhauls at 207 Street. Track 1 is connected to the southbound Lexington Local, track 4 connects to the northbound Broadway local.

When a set cycles out,the platform plates over the track are removed,and are put back when the new set cycles in
Remember this was part of the IRT's original route.

my question was what was the time between changeouts either in hours or distance travelled for mandatory maintenance

The shuttle sets are actually maintained at Livonia yard.

Does that make the shuttle the oldest "temporary" operation on the system? And was the centennial commemorated last year? (Hard to see what else they could have done.)

No centennial commemoration from NYTM.

I noticed that the track 3 set was changed out last night
and all the cars have a “serviced at Livonia” sticker on them
