Those are likely R33WF's in the 932x-933x-934x range. They are based at Corona and other yards throughout the system. That's why you may have seen the 7.

Oh brother, I hope the those Redbirds can be used for the public to fantrip on them once again after the wash the interiour of those three cars, unless they removed the interiour parts and seats.

This Redbird garbage train was photographed by John Villanueva on the Culver Line on July 25: http://www.subwayspot.com/images/subway ... Culver.jpg

I also saw the train, but wasn't in a position to get a decent photo. I wouldn't have gotten this good a photo, anyway.
