Tuscarora Almanac – January 13, 1981 – The Book of Wrecks

New York City Transit Authority

Year of deferred maintenance, poor management and municipal neglect finally caught up with the New York subway system today.

2,117 subway cars could not answer the call to service being laid up for repairs. That was nearly one out of three. It would take several years and a lot of hard work before the subway system would climb out of the pit.
