I've heard the R62A that was used in the 2009 movie has returned to service. Does it still look like a R-142/R-142A?

I saw this movie last week and enjoyed it. I thought Travolta over-acted a bit. I'm no NYCTA expert, but I'm sure there were technical errors - however, I still enjoyed the movie. I could be a CTA rivet counter for Chicago L movies, but I'd rather enjoy the movie (anybody ever see how big the pilot was in the car-crash scene on 'Running Scared'?) and that's what I did here.

It was restore back to regular condition and is in service on the 7.
Since my friend continues to chain smoke nonstop, she is probably an Alco.
