Early R38 subway car artistic render

Recommended Posts

Wow that looks good. To think those were going to be made entirely of Carbon Steel.

Not bad.  I've always thought that the R-38 was one of the best looking car classes out there.  Pity that they're gone...

I miss having blue in the subway system, that was such a common look through the 1960s and 1970s and it's all but gone now. Real shame. This looks great, anyway.

It was the "MTA corporate look" They should bring it back IMO.

 

If you all think the render for the 38s were cool, you should have seen the one for the R40 slants!

There is a distinct lack of color in the trains, especially with the exteriors. Besides the splashes of red on the 142s, everything's either stainless steel, carbon steel, and in the case of the 42s, rust. Sure, the NTTs have the black fronts, but that's about it. I'd also like a return to the "corporate look". At the very least, it'll break up the monotony prevalent today.
