I hear there was a lot of grumbling when the R-32s first appeared. For one thing, they were replacing an icon, the Triplexes, which could swallow crowds and make it look easy with their abundant seating. Not so with the Brightliners with their longitudinal seats. And since platform lengthening was in its early stages, only eight-car trains could operate, shorter than a four-unit Triplex train.
