Got some questions

Recommended Posts

They didn't have A/C and had a low MDBF. They also had parts that were usable for the IRT redbirds so they scrapped the R30's to give spare parts to the others.

R30s had bad MBDF, so (MTA) retired them a few years after they went through GOH, and some of the new equipment went to the R36 fleet. In addition, according to Sansone's book, "a steady decline in ridership, anticipated future demand, and budget considerations. also, the cars had no A/C, and the B division spare factor could be reduced to 12% and service would not be affected."

 

Four R16s exist today: 6305 and 6339 at MTA NYC Transit's Coney Island Complex in Brooklyn, 6387 at the New York Transit Museum, and 6398 at the Trolley Museum of New York, Kingston, NY. None of which are operational.
