The City of New York opened the first municipal subway line in 1932. Car 1689 was built in 1940 for an expansion of service. It ran until 1977 in New York. At 60 feet and 84,000 pounds, this is the largest passenger car regularly operated at the museum. It was repainted and restored in 2013 to its mid-to-late 1960’s appearance inside and out.
