Re: [PHOTOS] ***R-10's On The (F) 1980 ***

That was during the time the R46's had the cracked trucks and transit aimed to restrict them to rush hours only.

The fleet got trucks inspected Tuesday after the PM rush till Wednesdays AM rush. Those not inspected got inspected after the PM rush Wednesday till the AM rush Thursday. Whatever didn't get inspected were not allowed to go in service for the AM rush Thursday. Progress depended on the number of trucks found with cracks as those cars had to get "drilled" out of the train with another car substituted. The fleet also got trucks inspected Friday nights straight thru until completed. The trains one by one went into the barn with car inspectors inspecting the trucks with their lanterns.
