Re: (Belated) Requiem for the R-44

I think part of what made the bright blue so cool was that it was only on one line (except for occaisional loans of WF cars to the mainline- which is well documented on nycsubway.org).

If it was universally applied, it would have been less special.

I know some R10s got the light blue paint as well. I suppose that's kind of OK- kind of celebrating their emrgence into daylight after the long runs under CPW and Fulton Street...

But my bottom line- and it's just an opinion, after all, is that it's better it wasn't applied to the whole fleet.
