Removing trucks from a subway car in the shops?

Recommended Posts

At 207 Street Yard - they lift up one end of a subway car at a time and put it on a yellow stand. Once the entire subway car is separated from the truck, they move the truck out a little bit, hook it up to a crane and away it goes.

At Coney Island Yard - The same thing happens except they are able to lift the entire subway car up at one time. (go to 1:15 - 1:22)

Always wondered how do they remove a truck from a subway car in the shop, do they just lift the car up and out it goes?

 

After they remove all the air lines and electrical and any hand brake linkages, they lift up and out they go. the weight of the car keeps them together.

I've seen them do this at the LIRR maintenance shed near Hunters Point Ave.
