Has the M-9 assignment schedule changed ?
If so, please post.
Not sure. I did see an 8-car M-9 train on 762, the 5:04 to Hempstead from Penn Station on Monday afternoon. This is as the schedule posted earlier.I only saw those M-9s on train #762 only once. Conventional stuff since.
The M9 trainset is expected to operate on these same runs on Thursday (Sept.12). On Friday (Sept. 13), the LIRR expects to lengthen the trainset to 10 cars and operate it on a different set of trains. The trainset will be lengthened again by two more cars, on Sept. 20, with the resulting 12-car trainset serving yet a different collection of trains throughout the days that follow.This is what I was referring to. When the the consist is lengthened, they would certainly be in service on other lines. I was wondering just which lines. Sorry I was not clear.

1.) Port Jefferson/Huntington Branch (obviously Huntington westward).
2.) Hempstead Branch.
3.) Port Washington Branch.
4.) Ronkonkoma Branch.
5.) Long Beach Branch.
I'm drawing a question mark on these.
1.) Babylon Branch.
2.) Far Rockaway Branch.
3.) West Hempstead Branch.
5.) Oyster Bay (East Williston only).

With the M9s coming in, is there a plan for disposing of the M3s? Will they slowly be shipped off for scrap w/frontier?
