Having your Soup and Eatting it Too! Campbell's Soup and the Eighth Avenue
This weekend, the New York City Transit Authority is running some vintage R1-9 equipment on the weekend "M" train, that now runs on weekends between Metropolitan Avenue Queens and Essex-Delancey Streets, the site of our abandoned trolley station at the foot of the Williamsburgh Bridge. J. Caronetti posted a nice series of shots of old IND equipment on the line. They are very good quality and are posted in subchat. (subchat r17-6599) Also posted is a undated advertising panel perhaps from 1948 for Campbell Soup showing a drawing of an IND R-1-9 car.
