I was getting on the F train the other day and observed what I thought to be a test train. I was at Kings Hwy, and in the middle track was a 7 train consist. I noticed a wire that went out one of the windows and went below the body of the car.

Anybody know what it was about?

Nah, it was definetly a current "7" train. Some of the cars had that History Channel stripping that some of them have. I have viewed it a few more times since my orginal post.
