Just out of curiosity, how many PA-4 (or other PA series cars) have orange LED destination signs mounted inside the windows? I'm talking about the signs inside the cars that display the entire destination i.e. "Journal Square" that someone on the outside can read, and not the red LED's ABOVE the windows that only say "JSQ", "WTC" etc . An example would be the one on car #838 (saw it a few nights ago). I've also seen red LED signs that display the entire destination, but don't recall the car number(s). Thanks.

These were testing signs. They were not in all cars. The new cars will all have these signs.

I'm pretty sure it's only 1 or 2 cars that have those. A couple of cars have the head end red LED signs. I'm not sure if more than one car has the orange side sign. Try looking up PATH on nycsubway.org or something like that -- I know one of these sites has an exact listing.
