Re: Caught a 5000 Series on I-95

I get it. But the last time I was there, some time ago, they just started to retire the 1000's. I only saw 2 pair of 4000's in service but quite a few 5000's running. Which were poorer performers, the 4000's or the 5000's?

The 5ks. The 4k became orphans when the decisions was made to replace them instead of upgrading them to be compatible with the 7ks. The 4ks were the last of the cars in the fleet that did not have AC propulsion.
