Re: NYC Subways - the good stuff


@Gogp...There are some still running as work cars. I'm sure they will keep them for a bit because IRT work cars can also be used on the BMT/IND lines. BMT/IND cars are wider and can not be used on the IRT lines. Reason being is that IRT platforms are built to close to the rails whcih means BMT/IRT cars can't fit on them. The next line of IRT cars after these would be the R-62's(silver bullets) that came out in 1983-84. I doubt they will transform these cars to work trains anytime soon as they still have some life in them for passenger service. I have seen a few though converted but mostly cars they were involved in some type of accident which were then rebuilt.

So Im sure we will still see some red birds in work train action for awhile.
