Re: Mixed Trains on the IRT - When Did it Start?

Posted by Fisk Ave Jim on Sat Nov 16 17:57:44 2019, in response to Mixed Trains on the IRT - When Did it Start?, posted by Bzuck on Sat Nov 16 16:21:05 2019.

IIRC, it started as soon as it was needed since the cars were designed to run together. That was long before the R-12/14s & 15s came from Flushing. Those cars really stood out in those mixed consists with their different car design.
As far as a specific date that car orders became mixed in revenue service (as in the first train), I couldn't say & would be suprised if anyone else could.
