It could be modifications, but if you recall, there was a 10-car option for 350 total cars.

lol yea... one that was never very much publicized... hence why we know so little about the details...

This might be the 10 additional cars that were ordered over the original 340. If they are getting 5 cabs and 5 cab-less cars the new highest numbers should be 5825/cab-cars and 5225/cab-less cars. If anybody knows different, please correct me.

I saw a blue PATH car on a flatbed truck at around 6:30 p.m. last week, on Frank E. Rodgers Blvd. in Harrison, I believe on Thursday. I didn't catch the car number. Would that be a car that PATH is taking delivery of, perhaps in connection with its supplemental order of cars, or one sent away for some reason?

Going back to our earlier discussion of the ten additional "A" cars probably being numbered 5820-5829. I actually saw car 5828 a while back, so it looks like that was correct.
