The newest member of New York's subway fleet is the R-160 but where does it all begin? At first it's just sheets of metal in Sao Paulo, Brazil where human skill, fire, and steel come together to build the body shell. After a month-long voyage, the body arrives in Hornell, NY for final assembly, motor installation, and testing. This 85,000 lb. car is built to last 40 years, to withstand the force of 1.6 billion riders per year, and survive in one of the world's toughest environments - New York City.
