Currently on the dead line at 207 Street Yard are a redbird, a yellow rider car, and some R-42 cars. These cars may soon be loaded onto the Barge of Death for a one-way trip to the reef.

Subway car barge to depart this Saturday

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008


The famous “barge of death” will once again be departing New York City Transit’s 207 Street Yard for the waters of the Atlantic Ocean. The latest estimate is for it departing this Saturday morning. The retired R-32 and R-40 class subway cars will be dumped in the ocean to form an artificial reef.
