They never ran on the A train.
The north roll sign was put into the south sign window.

Sore goes out of business, but 2/3 of a subway cat remains.

Now it's up to the new tenant to either get rid of it or incorporate into stores the space.

At the moment there is a "pop-up" fashion eyeglass store there.

There are only 2 ways that I can see to remove 8394:

1) Have a welder come in and slowly break the car down into pieces
2) Remove it the way it was put in - remove almost the entire store front and have a crane lift the car out.

I don't see either happening anytime soon which is why the store has remained vacant (except for the 'pop-up' store -- which doesn't seem to do much business).

Umm,every now and then, you would fine unusual equipment operating on a line uncommon for them.
The R27/30 did indeed operate in A service.
These cars,like the 32s,operated on every single line in the B division.

Those car bodies in that video are not the same as the one in the West 42nd St store. Same number though.
