If you were driving on the Goat Path or over the Bear Mountain bridge a few nights ago, and thought you saw an old NYC subway heading up the West Shore, you did, kind of.
This freight train, carrying the bodies of R-32 subways, passed though Mine Dock Park right about peak rush hour.
A quick “Googlectomy” revealed that these old “Brightliners,” after fifty years of service, were heading for Ohio to be recycled.
The Gothamist (gothamist.com) notes that these are the last subway cars you could see out of the front car and into the tunnel.
