Newark city subway (rte 7).

Recommended Posts

So, these streetcar type trolly subway cars seem to have pantographs. So, how much will it take to restore them, & when will we see them on HBLR? :P

The PCCs are retired for good, but NJT decided to store them at a HBLR facility instead of scrapping them. I'm guessing that NJT still has yet to sell them to various museums.

The PCC cars. Several have been rebuilt/refurbished by Brookville & put into service in other parts of the country... Would be keen to see them on the HBLR!

Absolutely, but I'm not sure if the Newark Subway runs with the same voltage as the HBLR. If so, then the PCCs might have their original taps from running on the Newark Subway rendering them incompatible with the HBLR.

NCS runs the same exact voltage as HBLR, same LRV's and everything, just a different system with tracks that don't connect.

some idiot sued them and now they're out of business... so now there might be no other company that restores PCC cars...

Actually they are technically not retired. They are going to be put on some loop thing in Bayonne at some point, though I'm sure with all the money being put into that pit they are digging to NY there are no funds for this.

Brookville is still around, they've been around for a long, long time. Maybe you're thinking of colorado railcar?

 

As far as loop, that'd be nice!
