Okay, for the benefit of those car roster record keeping fans, here is the complete list of the 110 green W.H. R-10 cars, that were overhauled at NYC Transit's 207th Street Shop between December 1984 and February 1986:

2951, 2955, 2956, 2957, 2958, 2959, 2960, 2961, 2962, 2966, 2967(*), 2968, 2969, 2971, 2973, 2974, 3001, 3003, 3005(*), 3008, 3011, 3013, 3016, 3018, 3021, 3022, 3023, 3025, 3026, 3027, 3029, 3030, 3031, 3033, 3035(*), 3036, 3037, 3038, 3040(*), 3043, 3044, 3045, 3047, 3048, 3101, 3107, 3110, 3114, 3116(*), 3117, 3118, 3121, 3123, 3125, 3126, 3128, 3130, 3133, 3136, 3137, 3138, 3139, 3141, 3142, 3143, 3144, 3145, 3146, 3149, 3150(*), 3153, 3154, 3157, 3158, 3159, 3161, 3164(*), 3166, 3168, 3169, 3170, 3173, 3176, 3177, 3181, 3182, 3184, 3185, 3186, 3187, 3191, 3193, 3194, 3197, 3198, 3199, 3201(*), 3203, 3204, 3205(*), 3206, 3208(*), 3209, 3212, 3215, 3216, 3219, 3220, 3221 and 3224.

(*) = Car that had its side number plates lowered from the top of the roofline a few inches down.

The W.H. R-10's that NYC Transit did not choose to be in this overhaul program were:

2965, 3009, 3010, 3039, 3046, 3152, 3188, 3190, 3210 [reported to have G.E. parts instead] and 3223.

Big thanks and huge credit to Grounded Shoe Beam posting for the vendor's name of the GOH'd cars rotary screw compressor which was NYAB (New York Air Brake). The original R-10 air compressors were mentioned on that post as being 2CY types, but NYC Transit's car specifications listed them as being WABCO A-1 units - 3YC type compressors, although they can be both considered as correct.

Finally, the electrical motor and controls originally distributed in the R-10 fleet based on the car numbers assigned were as follows:

2950-2974, 3000-3049 and 3100-3224 with W.H. motors and controls; 2975-2999, 3050-3099 and 3225-3349 with G.E. motors and controls.

Cars 2950-2999 were formerly 1803-1852 between 1948 and 1970.
