These trains can operate in any MTA subway line?
Well the R142/A , R188 , R62/A operate on the number lines or A division & R62/A , R143 , R160A/B , R68/A , R46 , R44 , R32/A operate on the letter lines or the B Division. The Width of B division cars is much wider then the A division hence the 2 will never overlap. Sometimes A division work trains use the B Division tracks...

A division = IRT

B division = BMT/IND

Right?

The difference between the widths of the trains is clearly visible.

I just found this..

NYC Subway FAQ's

Quote:
The trains of the BMT and IND lines are longer and wider than those of the IRT lines. Therefore an BMT/IND style train cannot fit into an IRT tunnel. An IRT train CAN fit into a BMT/IND tunnel but since it is narrower the distance from car to platform is unsafe. Cars from the IRT division are moved using BMT/IND tracks to Coney Island Overhaul Shops for major maintenance on a regular basis.

That's true.

The IRT, BMT and IND were built by different companies. Nowadays, It's very, very expensive to standardize all MTA subway lines for all trainsets. The advantages don't compensate the investment.

Even Sao Paulo subway is not standardized. Some lines have third rail and Irish gauge (1600 mm), but new lines have overhead wires, standard gauge and driverless trains. For example, a Line 4 train (standard gauge and driverless) can't operate in Line 3 (third rail and 1600 mm gauge) and vice versa.

A radical idea for MTA to secure funding is to transfer the development rights of Hudson Yards to MTA.

Aparently it's very normal for new escalators to be broken. See it all the time.

It is true.

Technical problems at the beginning are very common.

It also smelled like Sewage in parts of the stations upper areas...im not sure if that's related to the nearby construction. The Station is not connected to 34th Street but rather 35th Street...
