Work train at 14th St

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I'm new to this end of the web. I caught this garbage train at around 11 p.m. at 14th Street on the 8th Ave. line. Looks like it was made up of R32s and R33-WFs (there were more in the tunnel). I didn't have my camera with me, so I took these with my cell phone.

The R33-WF (9334) is presumably the same one as in this picture from 1970 (http://www.nycsubway.org/perl/show?4063), and one of the R32s (3729; didn't get a close-up of the other) is the same as in this picture (http://nycsubway.org/perl/show?12803) from 1981. Pretty cool. The R33 is also in this Youtube video of a garbage train from FanRailer, though it's not part of the same consist there.

(P.S. Is there a way to link to YouTube videos without embedding them?)

The other R32 should be 3728. And yeah, they're the same cars as from days gone by. They just look a little different.

 

Interesting though... an R33WF and an R32 in the same work consist.
