Re: Nighttime Shot of 3rd Ave El at 67th Street (1953)

Good point. Also since the MUDCs required fewer C/Rs it made more economic sense to retire the Composites with their manual doors and substitute MUDC el cars as the compositesí performance declined. The composites were able to serve a few more years on the Polo Grounds shuttle since after the first few years of their operation, train lengths were cut to 2 cars and only needed one C/R. After 1949 when the Qs were no longer needed for BMT Queens service, that was the death knell for the Composites since with MUDC, the Qs needed only one C/R.
