Re: Caught a 5000 Series on I-95

Damn shame. I knew those 5000's were going to be retired early, but this early?

Reliability. Those cars were the lemons of the fleet before they ever turned a revenue mile. They are being scrapped for the same reason why the 4ks were scrapped. The cost of giving them another 20 years of life is slightly less then replacing with new.
