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

Hello Joe,
re: your above post, details from the following article are found below:

NY Division Bulletin, Dec. 1972, vol. 15 #6, (page 5) article: IRT Car Explanations and Alterations - Part I by B. Linder

Composite fleet consisted of 401 cars at unification, by 11/23/49 there were 95 left.
The author cites source as being from incomplete records and that... complete post-unification scrapping records are not available but incomplete records exist.

So between Sept. 1946 and November 23, 1949, an additional 64 Composites were either scrapped or out of service (or storage pending scrapping) - does this info. seem correct (assumption or otherwise) based on the fact that known records are incomplete?
