Our October show featured a line-by-line photographic review by George Chaisson of key events surrounding the changeover in rolling stock used on New York City Transit’s Subdivision A (IRT Lines) between 2000 and 2005. Most of the show focused on the long transition from Redbirds to New Technology Trains on many lines, as well as the secondary changes that resulted on others.
George has presented several shows in the past and this one was a long time (literally years) in the making. It is also his last true slide presentation as such, since George’s ongoing and future photographic endeavors will be in digital format.
