[PHOTOS] The Three Faces Of Museum R-4 #401

Posted by Bill Newkirk on Tue Jan 8 16:41:33 2019

R-4 #401 in Jamaica yard as School car #491.
I guess it was renumbered from #401 to #491 not to conflict with SIRTOA R-44 #401

In Coney Island shops for the restoration to service process. (April 1999)

Currently as we know #401 at 2nd Ave-Houston for the Holiday Special. (December 28, 2014)

Thanks in advance for your positive comments.

The R10 World's Fair like scheme as a school car.
I didn't realize any got the R32 blue door treatment.
The R4's were not among those that ever got transferred to the Eastern Division during 1968-69.

Yes, #401 was later painted silver with blue dors. Don't know what year that occured.

That's true.

We know that one set of doors on 401 came from Seashore's R-1 175. They're the ones without the grab indents. Did one of the signboxes also come from 175? I wonder if it's the one with Three Stooges Division signs.

That sign box must have come from an R-7 or R-9, assigned to the Eastern Div. It has Eastern Div signs.

Surely they could scrounge up some IND curtains. They're still out there.
