Exact date R32s went into service

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the exact date R32s went into service and perhaps on which line? I seem to remember reading July 1967 but can't find the source.

 

Also, are they really gone from Revenue service or not?

R160B is much soomther than R160A

 

The R32s were from 1964. During 1960, the Standards were still the dominant force on the BMT lines. The IND lines used Arnines and Artens, predominantly. Yes, the slant made its début on the F. However that is not the point here.

ENY does not have ANY R40 Modifieds.

 

Please, we are talking about R32s, please do not jump onto R160s on this topic.

I don't remember the exact date but a friend of mine was a M/M on the (N) when they first hit the tracks. I know they came to the Brighton Express,(Q), and West End, (T and TT) , soon after that. On the night of the first blackout, 11/09/65 I was on a T Brightliner at 59th and Lex when the lights went out and service was suspended.

After 1967, they were everywhere though.

It was on September 9, 1964 that the Budd-Built Brightliners (R32's) ran from the New Haven yard to Grand Central Station. Shortly after, they were tested on the Sea Beach line. After testing, they went on the Sea Beach, West End and Brighton Lines first.
