With 3656 now in service, 3609 is the only 3600 series car still at Alstom. Since it was out of service for 10+ years before being sent to New York, it probably needs some extra work done. Hopefully it'll enter service before the year is over.

Additionally, it still hasn't been decided whether 3711 or 3719A/3711B will be sent to be rebuilt. Since all the other cars have been sent now, the decision will probably be made soon.

There are also now more Type 7s in service than Type 8s, which hasn't happened in a while.

According to NETransit, 3630, 3650, and 3693 have been shipped to Alstom to be used for parts. The cars are going to be scrapped there when the program is complete.

3602, 3703, 3711, and 3719 still remain at Riverside. It's been decided that 3719A/3711B may be overhauled at some point at Alstom, but it doesn't look like it's guaranteed to happen anymore. This means that 3602, 3703, and 3711A/3719B will probably be scrapped at Riverside soon.
