IND Opening Day Re-enactment: R1-9 in Revenue Service on the A
first leg of the IND subway (or 8th Avenue Subway as it was called during its
first years) opened on September 10, 1932 between 207 Street and
Chambers Street, September 10 will be its 72nd anniversary. The IND
Museum R1-9 train ran in revenue service on the A
line between 168 Street and World Trade Center between the hours of
10AM and 5PM, this was also the route of the first IND local trains,
although this train ran express.
On Saturday I just went on the first round trip down to World Trade
Center and back. I did an End-to-End diary on the way down (here)
