International Express; R211 & (L) Line Tunnel Commentary

Recommended Posts

This lengthy video is a commemoration of the IRT Flushing Line also known as the "International Express", which started service in Queens 102 years ago on April 21st, 2019. What makes this line so special is that it uses 11 cars, the 2nd subway line to have Communiations-Based Train Control(CBTC) (1st in the IRT division). The line was ranked the best by the straphangers campaign in 1997-2000; 2009-2010; 2014-2016.

The week before, a photo of a newly manufactured R211 subway car appeared on reddit.com. Here is a commentary explaining the full details of the car orders, and the subway lines they'll run on.


This commentary is based on the upcoming planned service changes involving the (L) subway line, as well as two new free bus routes; B91 and B92.
