Hi everyone. I’m very excited for Mth to be reissuing these slant 40 subway cars in the 2019 volume 1 catalog, plated and in both the as delivered livery and the retooled post GOH cars. You can get a total of four 6-car trains. I noticed if you search these cars on the web sight you can see all the routes. The as delivered set is signed up as a E train from Jamaica queens to far Rockaway. The other post GOH cars are signed up as follows. A 8th ave lefferts blvd, B 6th ave from the bronx to Brighton beach, finally Q 6th ave from 57th street to Brighton beach.
Not sure how many people pay attention to the routes Mth chooses but I would prefer to loose the Q train and get a different route. Both the B & the Q are 6th Avenue trains making the same stops. Only difference is the Q ends in midtown wile the B goes way uptown into the Bronx making more interesting stops such as the museum of natural history & yankee stadium.
That said I’ve been waiting for an L train (the Canarsie line) the R40’s we’re assigned to this line throughout the 90’s. The only change needed to make this line correctly is to loose the American flags on the cars. Those flags are post 911. I’m thinking if a bunch of us email Mth maybe they will make the change.
Anybody else have thoughts on these? I’m very excited for these. Just don’t know why we need 2 6th ave trains.
