Assuming every one of the remaining Type 8s that are out of service can be repaired and returned to operation (very highly unlikely, especially severely damaged 3847), even the addition of the 24 Type 9s will result in 221 cars.I know (from NETransit) that the 100 car Breda order was cut back to 85, then 10 additional cars (3885-3894) were assembled and delivered in 2007 using leftover shells for a final order of 95 (+ five spare shells). Have any of the leftover shells been used for wreck rebuilds yet and where are they stored?

Boots on the ground would confirm, but mine aren't authorized.They are clearly visible publicly from the Orient Heights commuter lot. Apparently moved there sometime in 2016. Appears to be five complete shells: 10 A/Bs and five center sections.
