The IND/BMT cars the form "The Train Of Many Metals" consist of 1R11, 1R16, 1R30, 1 R38, and 2 R40 slant ends.

On the IRT LO-V trip to Van Cortlandt Park on May 6th as we passed the 207th Shops the BMT Standards (1915) and Tri-Plex cars (1925) were sitting outside of the main shop building. I asked Bill Wall if there were any plans to run them this year. He said that in the Fall there should be two trips. One of them in October to Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn. The other one will be announced later this year.

To Bronx Bound:

Are you a member of the NYC Transit Museum and or The Electric Railroaders Association (The ERA)?

I am a member of both. If you are not a member of the ERA we meet on the third Friday of each month except for July and August at the Roosevelt Hotel on Madison Av. and 45th St. just two blocks from Grand Central Terminal. You can attend as a guest at no charge. I may be going there for the June 16th meeting. Let me know either way if you want to attend.
