Description

The ten R-11 cars were a new technology test train ordered as a prototype for a new fleet for The Second Avenue Subway, which of course never materialized. The new technology included include "precipitron" sterilizing lamps, under-seat heaters, and damper control of fresh and recirculated air through ceiling and under-seat diffusers. The R-11 was the first stainless steel R-type. 15 years later, the Budd Company also built the first production stainless steel fleet, the R-32.
