Also on this date in 1905, the southbound platform at Fulton Street opened. Initially, only the northbound platform was used for service.

Were the R-40M's worse off in general than the R-42's? Since they were so similar otherwise, perhaps they should have been kept as a group.

I thought the R40M's were better hands down than any R42. They operated so much smoother.

But what did the guys like me, the motorman know?

Car equipment knew better than me of the structural integrity of the cars, which likely influenced their decision.
