Raymond Loewy Also Designed This
Yesterday, in the United States, Google honored Raymond Loewy who was a designer. Loewy also was a co-designer of the R-40 (Slant) subway car in New York. In this undated picture, probably in 1968, a brand new F train consisting of R-40 Slant cars appear to be on the Culver Line probably at Bay Parkway - 22nd Avenue Station. The car appears before it was marked up and modified. The R-40 had its' problems however. I was told that the seats were uncomfortable and the slant wasted passenger space. The R-40 fleet was taken out of service in the last few years.
