    The A train is from 207 street to far rockaway.There is a shuttle train to Lefferts blvd & to the other part of of far rockaway.The A train is one of the most longest subway line in nyc.The R32 is the oldest subway car in the world it is going to be retired in a few months or a year it has been used on the A train for a long time.The R179 is not being used on the A train right now due to the couplers being broken.The R46 is used commenly on the A train shuttles & on regular A train shuttles.The R40 slant is used on the A train until 2009 when they were put them in redbird reef,they are used in the train of many metals service for the nyc transit museum.The line is only 31 miles & is half underground & in parts of queens it's overground until far rockaway.It is really easy to design because of it being mostly underground.They could connect this route to the nec & the lirr because the A train stops at penn station 34 street.JUST TO MAKE THIS CLEAR THE R40 & R42 CAN BE USED ON SPECIAL SERVICES I SAID THE R40 SLANTS WERE RETIRED IN 2009 & THE R42 CAN BE USED ALSO ON SPECIAL SERVICES

    R46
    R160

    R179’s are in Long Term Storage due to a coupling issue.

    Also Some of the stuff you have said here is incorrect.

    A better way to push this idea along is:

    Overview:

    The A Train is an NYC Subway line. It is a part of the B Division.
    The A Train Consists of three Branches; Inwood - 207 St to Lefferts Blvd, Inwood 207 St to Rockaway Park (Part-Time), and Inwood - 207 St to Far Rockaway - Mott Ave.

    The A Train is considered the 8th Avenue Express, it's local counterpart is called the C Train and runs local from Washington Heights - 168 St to Euclid Avenue. The C Train runs alongside the A at all times except for Late Nights, when the A runs local.

    When the A Train runs R46's they run in 2, 8 Car sets
    When the A Train runs R160's, or R179's, they run in 2, 10 car sets
    At both ends of a set, there is a Full-Width Cab
    The R32 runs in 5, 2 Car Sets. At both ends of a set, there is a Half-Width Cab

    The C Train ALWAYS runs in 8 Car Formations

    Both the A and C Trains are connected to 207 St Yard in Inwood, Manhattan

    No I mean that We could use them for a special train service for example something like the train of many metals
    & I know about the R179 I also forgot about the C-train Should have added it.I also said until 2009 they were retired

    I just fixed it The retired trains could be used on excursions I didn't add the C because this was mainly about the A but the E train doesn't run all the way so it can be the A & C
