End of the Line for the R-32 Fleet

Sunday, January 9, 2022 was the last day of public service for the venerable 1964 R-32 fleet. MTA New York City Transit sent them into retirement with several Sundays of trips on the D and Q lines, open to the public. The "Brightliners" ran on nearly every IND and BMT line during their lifetimes. The runs were not without some hitches, but the MTA and New York Transit Museum staff went all out to make the last runs a memorable event. One pair of cars, 3360-3361, was cosmetically restored to close to original appearance, including blue doors and pantograph gates, simulated end signage, rollsigns, and number plates. Thanks to our contributors for photos!

Been a long time...

Welcome to nycsubway.org - born in 1995, one of the largest New York City Subway history and fan sites on the web.

Regular visitors have probably noticed that there haven't been many updates over the past few years. Our pages about subway stations, rolling stock, and, especially, the pages about transit systems around the world, have become somewhat stale. Free (and paid) photo hosting, social media, and (especially) Wikipedia have outstripped one webmaster's ability to keep up.

The redesigned main page has links that will help you navigate nycsubway.org's content and highlight its strengths vs. what you can now find on social media sites and Wikipedia. Some other recent updates:

  • Lots of new images from the 1960s and the 1980s
  • Subway Art Guide revamped; now sortable by station, line, and year of installation; missing entries added (but some still need photos)
  • Wind-down of the "virtual host" bus.nycsubway.org (bus content and caption database integrated with main site - see Bus Transportation)
  • All content now being served SSL/https (this is why it looks like all the pages were recently updated)
  • Various script/code and cosmetic fixes
  • New slideshow of some of the new 1960s-era images I've been getting off Ebay: click here for the slideshow.
