MTH Premier 20-2934-1: R-34 4-Car Subway Set with Proto-Sound 2.0

In 1964, the New York subway system took delivery of 600 Budd-built stainless steel R-32 cars. The “Brightliners,” as they are called, come in married pairs bearing one even and one odd number. They have been overhauled in the almost 40 years since their initial appearance, so that the original distinction between R-32 and R-32A cars is no longer meaningful. These large subway cars are used on the former BMT (Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit Corp.) and IND (Independent) divisions (now called B-1 and B-2 divisions), which have larger tunnels than the former IRT (Interborough Rapid Transit) portions of the unified subway system. M.T.H. is proud to introduce subway cars to our Premier line-up, and what better way to do it than with cars for one of the world’s great subway systems. These beautifully detailed O Scale R-32 cars come with the sounds and signage for the N Train, running between Times Square and Coney Island, for an authentic New York experience.
