Dog (and Everyone): Heard mention at the December 2021 LIST meeting that the 80 M3 cars with PTC installed
are being stored with a return-to-service planned for the opening of ESA and completing the Main Line Third
Track Project one year from now with an anticipated ridership increase in 2023 depending on how the recovery
from the C-19 problem evolves over the course of 2022 affecting the percentage of riders returning to the LIRR.
9893-9894 which were sent out during 2021 had experimental interior changes - blue and orange seating along
with walls similar in type to the M7 cars. I only rode in these cars once after the modifications were made and
did not get another chance to take a good look at them again before they were retired...MACTRAXX
