1957: the trains you could see on every line
Posted by SLRT on Sat Jun 20 15:47:28 2020I started railfannning on my own in the last week of October 1956 on the Church Avenue trolley.
I started riding on the subway soon after with my 50c bus pass.
I expected to see the following equipment on each line (BMT and IND only)
R1/9 on every line but the A.
1 - Brighton Express - D Types
I know someone is going to say "I remember that I saw blah blah blah in that time frame" but this was a time of intense riding for me and the variants were pretty rare.
Sorry I can't help with the IRT - I didn't know a Low-V from a Hi-V. But I do remember R12-14-15 on the Flushing Line.
