I have seen some passing mentions that the 3 train used to run with 9 cars. How long was this the case for and why?

It would have had to go 10 cars shortly after anyway as its cars were to be sent to the 7, but the 9/11 service changes were when it happened.The 1901-2155 single unit R62As ended up on the 7 (except a small number that remained isolated on the shuttle).
