Subway FAQ: Subway Train Marker Lights

From nycsubway.org

NYCTA subway trains (and elevated trains, for that matter) had marker lights on the front indicating route and destination. The practice is now mostly discontinued (although the PATH system still uses them). Thanks to a nyc.transit post by "marcm" we have a list of IND/BMT Division marker combinations from 1976. The format for each line is destination-cab marker-opposite side marker.
