R-68s were ordered in the 1980s and were way overbuilt unlike the
earlyer R-44s and R-46s each car was and individual unit but now each
car has been put into a perminate four car set since full width cabs
are a must (3 2 car sets for Franklin Avenue shuttle) the cars were
more expensive per unit then the R-142s and R-143. The trains are 75
feet long and have the orange seats. The origional floors are very
white and are currently being replaced with darker ones. The cars will
probably have to have an early General Overhall because of numbers of
small problems. They have the same silver interiers as the R-62s. The
cars run on the full time Coney Island Yard Lines (D,N,Q), out of Concouse (D) and on the Franklin Avenue Shuttle.
