too bad the New Haven line wont get that done.. getting rid of the 80's fake wood panal makes the inside look much brighter.

M3s, M1s and M7s can technically can run on the New Haven Line..................to Mt. Vernon East at least. They could get a good run and stop at Pelham, but then they'd be dead in the water!!

The interior is so bright to keep the roaches from coming out. :wink:

You got to admit the seats could have been in a different color. I liked the old red and blue seats. Im sorry, im just raised with the m1/m3. Too bad i dont ride them anymore. :(

I have to say...the seat color choice was quite nice. It actually matches the rebuilt Gennies!

I wonder if the Mets chipped in for those seat colors. :-D Anyways I wish that treatment was done to the M2's when they went through CSR. Hopefully they might take out the wood for the M4/6 rebuilds.

Worked in a pair of M3's a couple of nights ago, the seats were blue, black, yellow -all mismatched. It didn't look very good. Didn't get the numbers though. (It seems I never do)

LIRR also has a set of rebuilt M-3s (9893-94), however the interior more resembles the M-7.

Most of the rebuilds also lost the opening windows, in favor of a one piece design. here is a quick photo of the center of the car. the non-wood paneled areas retained the "NYS seal" wallpaper

I've worked this pair before and its my understanding that almost all of our M3s have been overhauled, but only this pair got the interior treatment. Maybe this was due to lack of funding 'cuz we had to spend millions on all these WATCH THE GAP signs everywhere you look. :-D BTW, what's the deal with all the cushioning on the seatbacks?
