R-9 on the A

IND Opening day re-enactment End-to-End Diary
(By Jeremiah Cox, 21 August, 2004)
I did the fallowing log on the first run downtown of the R-1/9 running in revenue service on the A Express between 168 Street and World Trade Center (Hudson Terminal). An event that added to the spice was that all A trains were running local in both directions due to no C service (F trains were replacing C trains in Brooklyn)
