Buying an Old NYC Subway Car

Recommended Posts

Kind of a theoretical question. How much would cost to buy an R33WF Single Car. I know shipping would be expensive. I would ship it to a museum.

I haven't heard of an subway car being sold (or donated) to a private owner since the Arnine days. One was in Staten Island as a restuarant, one is in Florida. So you don't have to be rich to pull this off. Buffs have bought retired buses from the MTA much more recently. No idea of an exact price though. I think the MTA gave museums like Illinois railroad museum and seashore retired subway cars for free, they just had to pay for shipping costs.

 

 

Speculation on my part, you'd have an better chance finding an answer by e mailing the MTA rather than asking here.

Anyone bought an RTS when they were retired?

Yeah, someone bought 9207 when it was retired.

 

Someone out there also owns a GMC RTS.
