1976: #3298-3231-3320-2955 [ex-1808].

Slight correction, with one of the car numbers, due to a mistype...

1976: #3298-3231-3220-2955 [ex-1808].

I see they removed the graffiti from the R10s for the 1976 fantrip. In the mid-1970s nearly every car except the then-new R46s were covered in graffiti.

We all could have guessed that.:)

I wonder if any of those R-10s on that June 1986 trip actually ran on the Three Stooges Division back in the day.

I remember that day. No, I wasn't on the trip. I was at UConn and were playing UMass that day. After an 0-6 start, our football team won for the first time that season. We finished 2-9. UConn was never known for its football teams. Now, basketball is a whole 'nother story.

G.E. cars #3320-3349 operated on the BMT Eastern Division during the mid-1950's, except on the Myrtle line for some unknown reason, to give the crews be familiar with the SMEE applications they would operate with when the new R-16 cars came in service.

During 1980-1981, an occasional put-in train was in service during the weekday rush hours on the 14th Street-Canarsie Line, and possibly on the Jamaica Line. I rode one set on a Manhattan-bound "LL" run all the way from Canarsie to 8th-14th back in February 1981.
