IND Subway Line Turns 80

[float=left]post-5097-0-08012100-1347288390_thumb.jpg[/float]If you wanted to catch the(A)train on September 9th, 1932, you would have been out of luck. It started running a day later. That's right, the Eighth Avenue Subway, at times also known as the Independent, IND or Municipal Subway, celebrates 80 years of operation on September 10th.

 

To this day, the simple design, durable construction and high-speed characteristics of the Independent Subway remain models of first-rate subway construction.

I read this up on (MTA)'s website, it was a good read. I guess they will be celebrating that anniversary like it's first day in service, business as usual.

BTW, unless my computer calendar isn't right, September 10th is Monday, not tomorrow.

I was thinking the same thing LOL That would be great if the (MTA) celebrates the anniversary

We still have the R44's, and they can still run. We still have many of the cars for that (R1-R9, R32, R38-R40 mixed 4 car train :P, and R44)

Put in the R10s. They stayed on the (A) from 1948-1979 and then were moved to the (C)

That R40/38 combo would create too much foam.

 

 

Those are the only cars we have left... (@ the museum)

Too bad 34th, 42nd, 59th, and 207th Streets lost their IND tiling.

 

 

And Canal and 14th.....

I have a better idea: How about we run no trains on 8th Ave. and everybody can squeeze into shuttle buses...

 

For me that won't be a good idea. I have another idea, this time no express trains and trains stop at all stations.

Seriously, it would be sweet though if they, to celebrate the milestone, ran the Arnines on its initial segment of 207-chambers from 10am to around 3pm. 3 round trips local, this way the cars don't get overwhelmed.

Chambers? No where to turn them unless the last stop is either Canal or WTC. Let them run all the way to Far Rock why not? Or Leffy's
