Re: Answer For Mr. Dave Klepper's Question, Is It An R-10 or #1575?

Posted by William A. Padron on Mon Feb 22 15:53:17 2021, in response to Re: Answer For Mr. Dave Klepper's Question, Is It An R-10 or #1575?, posted by R30A on Mon Feb 22 15:31:28 2021.

According to the NYCTA specs and the notes say this about #1575...

General Note: Car wrecked 1946. Rebuilt to simulate future R-10 type car body. Underframe, trucks & equipment generally the same, but superstructure is new - of welded construction. Delivered 6-30-1947.

I believe what the photos that may have been circulated around where the test mock-ups placed on the older IND cars instead. However, the car body on #1575 is a brand new one built from the ground up.
