This video is a tribute to the R32 subway car. This car was built in 1964 by the Budd Company for the New York City Subway system. They continue to provide 45 years of service, but nor for long. All the R32's will be gone by late 2009. R32's were the first cars to made of pure 100% stainless steel. This is why they are lasting longer than their brothers (R38, R40, R42) because they are partly made of carbon steel.

As of 1/25/09, there are only about 230 R32's left out of the original 600.

While the R32's equipment cannot last much longer, their bodies can last a for another long while. If they had another rebuild with new equipment, I'd say the body can take another 30 years.
