  1. Ok so we all know that the 325 R62 car order started at 1301 but researching a bit I found out there was actually a car 1300 used as a fully functional test demo in 1982...Any word on what happened to it? Or even pictures of it.
  2. New Yorkers themselves is part of the problem, not all the blame should go on the MTA
  3. The First R62 being loaded into a ship in Kobe Japan 1983
