|The R-142 and R-142As are two almost identical orders of cars that were just manufactured by completely different companies, the cars are nicknamed the new millennium cars since they arrived between 2000 and 2004. They replaced all redbirds. The cars are the normal IRT 51 feet-long and narrower then IND cars. They were ordered to and replaced all redbirds, These differences between the two versions are small but noticeable. The two different sets of cars sound different. In terms of looks the differences are the interior speakers are located directly in the center of the ceiling and much more visible in the R-142s, the R-142As have smaller speakers that are on the curve of the ceiling. The cars have bench seats and automated recordings.|
