The R-32 A "Brightliners" begin passenger service today on the "Q" Broadway - Brighton Express. (aka BMT # 1 Brighton Express.) The first train ran from Brighton Beach to 57 Street - 7 Avenue with cars (n) 3359-8, 3371-0, 3362-3 and 3364-5.

After the General Overhaul Rebuilding of the late 1980’s the R-32 A’s and R-32’s were collectively classed as R-32 GOH or more simply R-32.

When the contract was awarded to the Budd Company in 1963 for 600 stainless steel cars it was split into two separate orders. The first 300 cars were classed as “R-32 A”, road nos: 3350-3649. They were paid for by the City of New York. The second 300 cars were known as “R-32”, road nos: 3650-3949. They were paid for by bonds issued by the New York City Transit Authority.
