Fan trip Question

Recommended Posts

how come the MTA only has fan trips with the R1/9 train? I mean they have a fan trip with the train every year what about the Low V or the SMEE train or them brown BMT trains forgot the model name or the R30s they havent had a Fan trip with Low V/SMEE train since 2004.

Well there won't be any more fan trips with the SMEE train because its awaiting scrapping in CI yard.

 

What! They can't do that! Aren't those valuable historic items?

The R1/R9s are the strongest out of all the historic fleet; that's why they use them the most. However, this past summer they did use the LO-Vs on the IND and IRT (that's why 4902 is in front of the R17 @ Court Street). Once in a while they use the old trains for Special Events. For example: Yankees Playoff Games they had the LO-Vs on the (4) line; the past couple of years they ran the Arnines (R1/R9s) on the (V) line (don't know about this year b/c of $$/budget problems) and I think they ran the TOMC on the (7) for (I think) the last Mets game at Shea Stadium. I've also seen a few photos of the LO-Vs inside the new Corona Shop; don't know what the occassion was.

Not being rude but did you really have to revive this 2-year-old thread???
