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

There were countless problem cars - lights-out was a common fault, so was heat-on; every so often one would develop stuck brakes and stick the entire consist somewhere. Dead motors? Tons of 'em, especially on thr "GG", before the R16s took over. Deferred maintenance at its finest.
