Since the R62/62A Cars are pretty much linked together in consists of 5 cars, I asked the MTA where are they going to get the 2 extra cars to make the 2 consists of 6 cars they will need cor the shuttle.
The response I got indicted they had some extra cars stored in the Livonia yard.
There are also more than enough R62/62A cars still in single configuration to run on the shuttle. All the current 3/4 car shuttle sets are singles and not 5-unit sets. No extra cars will be needed, since the current (pre-construction) operation used a total of 10 cars at peak, and there are plenty of spares to be had (I've seen singles on several (6) trains, so they're covered).
