I'd like to update the current received fleet numbers and overall totals to be delivered if anyone has this available? Thank you.

Caught 2 sets on 2/14/2020

1. Train #2317 from Farmingdale to NYP with 8 cars

2. Train #2102 from NYP to Ronkonkoma with 12 cars.

Both were seen in Queens Village.

Question: Are the M-9's in service on the weekends on the Ronkonkoma Branch or anywhere else ?

Yesterday (Sat. March 14) I saw a train of M-9's at Hicksville at 4:59PM. All doors open, destination sign stated "Penn Station". Must have been a Huntington train.

Earlier in the day, possibly the same train spotted in Farmingdale. Train made a station stop at Farmingdale. I counted 12 cars. Test trains are usually 6 cars.

Now if I can only luck out at catch one into the city. I don't travel weekdays by train.
