Re: March 31, 1977 - The Last R-1/9 Run In Service

Posted by randyo on Wed Apr 4 14:43:30 2012, in response to Re: March 31, 1977 - The Last R-1/9 Run In Service, posted by Howard Fein on Wed Apr 4 13:47:00 2012.

Although the QJ to Stl was mostly R-27/30s with an occasional R-42, 1 or 2 trains of R-9s did show up in that service from time to time. As for the EE there was an incident circa 1972 involving a stalled EE in the 60 St tube which jacked up EE and RR service in the PM rush. Although it turns out that the trouble train was a SMEE (R-16 I believe), the powers that be in the TA ordered all R-1/9s off the EE so that the EE became 100% SMEE and the GG ran with mixed equipment.
