New York City Subway Cars through the ages. Or at least a good chunk of them from the Transit Museum. It is a really fun museum if you like old subway cars.

Inside the warmth of DM3 1210’s cab, Driver Lennart Antonsson talks to the controller before starting his load of iron iron on its journey through the Arctic mountains and fjords to the port of Narvik in Norway. The venerable DM3’s coupled wheelsets set up a rocking movement like a steam locomotive so the contol panel is attached to the driver’s air cushion seat and moves independently of the locomotive. All made for a fascinating cab ride in Nov 2007.
