Holiday in New York

Our friend Bill Wall sent us a couple of brief videos taken by Mark Woladarsky, who is also an IRM member, featuring an eight-car train of vintage New York rapid transit cars.  These cars are part of the collection of the New York Transit Museum, which is often able to run vintage equipment like this on the subway system. 

1) The denizens of New York are really living it up!

2) Same train as viewed from a regular train.  Bill says the old equipment can actually outrace the newer cars once they get up to higher speeds.
