PA-1-3 Retirement Status

Post by mkouassi » Wed Sep 01, 2010 2:55 pm

Okay, so we all know that most of the PA-1-3s were scrapped somewhere in Ohio. The PA-3 733 is now on the flatbed ( if anyone saw it) and is now heading to ohio for scrapping. It was seen at the Harrison Yard.

As of yesterday, 130 older PA1/PA2/PA3/PA4 cars have been scrapped. 217 PA5s are now on the property.

Older PA cars are being sent to Frontier Corp. in Ohio (which also scrapped Metro-North's M-1As, ACMUs and Comet I-As).
Since my friend continues to chain smoke nonstop, she is probably an Alco.

That flatbed photo above is the saddest sight this lifelong PATH fan has ever seen. Just as bad as seeing NYCTA's R-40's getting dumped into the ocean............... :(

I rode PATH today (June 14, 2011) and saw four trains of old cars. The consists were as follows;

33 - JSQ LCL -
1) 872-812-861-840-810-121-891

2) 856-120-801-888-858-808-862

3) 806-142-864-849-811-887-800

A fourth train was laid up on track 2 at 33 Street;

874-118-835-824-878-867-828

I guess that the PA-1A's are gone.
