It Was 20 Years Ago Today..........

Recommended Posts

June 25th 1993 - The last trains of R-30's and R-30A's ran in service today on the "C" Concourse-8th Avenue-Fulton Street Local.

 

The Consist was :

 

R-30A 8408-8397

R-30 8322-8305

R-30 8298-8295

R-30A 8396-8393

 

I grew up riding the R-27/30's in the 70's and 80's ,  I will always remember and miss them.

Sadly, I wasn't alive to see them. They are really nice cars. Luckily, one R30 is part of the transit museum. I think the MTA should save more old subway cars such as the redbirds at Unionport Yard.

There is an R27 that is now owned by the museum. It's 8145, which is still in redbird paint scheme. It was one of the 24 R27s that were painted in that paint scheme.
