Question about M7

Recommended Posts

I was riding the LIRR to Penn from Merrick in the spring and I sat down, but noticed this mounted on the wall:

 

(Cell phone, did not want to attract too much attention so this is crappy, sorry)

What is that? I've never seen that in any M7s before. Forgot the car number, sorry again.

I believed this used to be a "RailFone" (pay satellite phone), which were removed with the advent of cell phones. Not all cars have this.

 

That's correct. I think they actually scrapped the idea before the phones were installed, though. You'll only find this apparatus on the lower-number M7s.

I know for sure they were installed in the C3's, as an MTA video shows a passenger using one.
