Cars to replace R-46 fleet, See RFP
Italic notes are from James Matthews in an e-mail 1/21/2008

The R-110 contract was actually for the research & development for the design. The cars we've been calling the R-110A and R-110B are actually contract R-130 and R-131.

The TA negotiated hard and awarded a split R-142 contract to Bombardier (680 R-142) & Kawasaki (400 R-142A) for a total of 1080 cars on 4/29/1997. The total cost for the cars $1.5 Billion was about what was budgeted for 740 cars! The first cars were scheduled for delivery in February 1999 (5/99 update May for the R142 and Nov for the R-142A cars). It's too late to get those 'Redbird' pictures! Here is the last one in service.

The R-143 contract was awarded to Kawasaki and the contract increased to 212 cars. They will be equipped with the Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) signal system which will be installed on the L Canarsie - 14th St Line.
