I was wondering what subway cars are not tunnel friendly, and what the worst combinations of car + tunnel are. Thanks in advance!

What about the Malbone St wreck? I think that might be considered a case of the tunnel being unfriendly with the subway car.

 

Yes, i know how narrow the brighton line tunnels are, however i'm asking what the worst combination of car + tunnel etc would be, what car tipe ie R42, and what tunnel, ie brighton line road bridge tunnel (the narrow tunnels under the roads along the route). What cars can't fit well where.

In the Montague Street Tunnel on the R,M lines from Court St. to Whitehall St. - 75 foot cars (ex R-46) Can't fit in the tunnel that branches off midway for the M line. So if an R with R-46's takes a wrong lineup inside the tunnel , major problems.

Do they slow down in there because of that? Has there been any past incidents?
