IRT Lexington Avenue Line (R62, R62A, R142, R142A) Action

Recommended Posts

Today, we will take a look of the diversity fleet of the IRT Lexington Avenue Subway Line. It's the only subway line to serve the east side of Manhattan, until the opening of the Second Avenue Subway at 72nd, 86th, and 96th Sts. Regular subway fleet along the line in Manhattan, and especially Brooklyn and The Bronx such as R142/As on the (4)/(5) lines & R62As on the (6). Special appearances features R142/As on the (6)*, R142As on the (5), and the R62/As on the (4)*. Also featuring, the (2) train via Lexington Avenue Line. Please enjoy. NOTE: R142As ran on the (6) Line from 2000-2018, when the line's NTT's went to the (7) Line for CBTC automation in exchange for the R62As. R62s made the in-service debut on the (4) in 1983.
