Surprise....A Number 1 Train in Fresh Paint!

Recommended Posts

Here are two photographs taken at 238th Street Station on 9/21/84. I had observed this set of equipment fresh from the paint shop a few days earlier and was determined to catch it before the vandals took notice. As evidenced by my previously posted pictures, clean equipment on an IRT route other than the Number 7 was not a common occurence during this period.

Enjoy! It was a refreshing change from the equipment typically seen at the time.

These totally white train sets probably were a vandals dream come true. What was the average time period of a fresh coat of paint for these trains before they would be vandalized again?
