Which cars am I?

Recommended Posts

  1. NYCTA engineers were reluctant to decide which term would best apply to them: "electronic lemons" or "electronic wonders". After all, they were first to introduce new features both obvious and subtle to the riding public.
  2. One of this cars important technical features was the replacement of door control levers by single push-buttons and relays.
  3. When these cars first appeared on the system they were quickly given the name of "The Million Dollar Train."
  4. This car when first delivered had some growing pains. For one thing, the cars sat too high to clear subway tunnels safely because nobody thought of modifying the suspension to compasate for their lighter car body weight.

Please answer the questions in this form:

 

1. or 1) your answer

2. or 2) your answer

3. or 3) your answer

4. or 4) your answer

 

Thank you
