  • In this May 1964 photograph, R36 WF car 9627 “poses” outside the World’s Fair grounds in Flushing, Queens. Built by the St. Louis Car Company, the R36 WF fleet was the last order of cars to feature a non-stainless-steel body. Originally painted in a light turquoise color scheme, the cars were commonly called “Bluebirds,” until they were repainted as Redbirds in the early 80s. They were the first cars to be rebuilt in the NYCTA’s General Overhaul Program in the 1980s, allowing them to be mainstays on the 7 line until 1998, when New York City Transit announced that it would phase out all Redbirds. The final train of Rebirds ran along the 7 line in November of 2003, marking the end of non-stainless steel cars in the subway.
