R-211T Open Gangway Test Train Arrives

The first R-211T Open Gangway train is on the NYC Transit property and ready to begin testing in the near future. Cars 4040-4044 arrived November 2, and cars 4045-4049 arrived November 16, 2022. Twenty such cars were ordered to test the feasibility of open gangway cars in New York City. Such trains are common in European metro fleets but haven't been tried in New York since the BMT's pre-war triplex and multiunit articulated trains. The R-211T trains will not be articulated (meaning, two cars sharing a single truck), but will have an open connection with an accordion-shaped rubber gasket between the cars, allowing passengers to walk freely between the cars of a five-car set.
