30-2759-3 New York Transit (Green) RailKing Original MSRP $199.95 2007 Volume 1 Catalog (cv) Q Type 3-Car Subway Add-on Set (Non-Powered) - 1616 A, 1616 B, 1616 C Car #'s Product Details In the late 1930s, the Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit Corporation rebuilt 90 turn-of-the-century wooden elevated cars for service to the 1939-40 World's Fair. Steel ends replaced the original open wood platforms and the BMT shops installed new doors and control systems. The cars were semi-permanently coupled into three-car sets, with two motorized units flanking an unpowered trailer. The Q (for "Queens") cars served on the Flushing Line until 1949 and the following year began a new career on the Third Avenue Elevated. Like the proverbial phoenix, the cars - now more than half a century old - began yet another life in 1957, when they were moved to the Myrtle Avenue Elevated. When the Q-Types were finally retired in 1969, the oldest cars had been in continuous service for 66 years - the longest career of any New York City transit car. Today you can see a preserved Q-Type in the New York Transit Museum, the only rail museum in America located in a former subway station. The RailKing Q-Type El cars feature transit stop simulation available only from M.T.H. Designed specifically for our municipal transit cars, the unique Proto-Soundr 2.0 transit program features Station Stop Proto-Effects, allowing you to program the train to stop automatically at designated station stops, even in Conventional Mode. When configured to run on automatic, the Q-Type stops itself at locations you define and calls out station names that you select in advance; the train essentially runs itself. And when you program the Q-Type for an out-and-back route, it even reverses itself and heads back downtown when it reaches the end of the line - stopping along the way at each station to broadcast the name of the stop and the hustle and bustle of passengers coming and going.
