"Yellowbird" Work cars

Recommended Posts

Do they still use the yellow painted work cars? I havent seen them in a while, the past few videos of the work trains have been regular red painted cars.

I see them all over the place. They're in the yards until they're ready to do their thing. As for seeing one pass by you, well, gotta be in the right place at the right time! :)

Of course they do. If they're not in the yard resting, they are leading garbage trains or work trains.

 

Not yellow birds. The cars that are completely yellow are rider cars or spacer cars. They do not run on their own and have MCB couplers, not H2C like most subway cars have. They are placed after work diesels or between them. They are used as crew cars for some projects.

From where I live at (between Gates & Halsey Sts on the BMT (J) line) I see them go by at nights on the unused middle track. I've even saw the VakTrak many times.
