Digital Discussion – The General Overhaul Program

November 4, 2020 | 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free Online Discussion

The General Overhaul Program (GOH) was a mid-life overhaul program for neglected subway cars, largely Redbirds, which involved thorough rebuilding of the fleet. Since the completion of the GOH program, the new Scheduled Maintenance System (SMS) program has replaced the GOH program by ensuring that trains do not reach a state in which they would need such an overhaul.

Join us for a digital discussion with moderator Jodi Shapiro, Associate Curator, William Allcot, MTA Superintendent of Car Equipment, Bill Wall, MTA Train Service Supervisor, and Joseph Tassiello, who retired from the MTA as the General Superintendent for the East Side Lines – A Division – IRT, to learn the ins and outs of the program, including its extraordinary impact on the current fleet of trains that moves millions of New Yorkers daily.


Limited spots available! RSVP NOW!

Please Note: This discussion will take place online. Upon registration, all participants will receive a confirmation e-mail with instructions on how to participate. We encourage you to download the Zoom app in advance for the best user experience.

Thank you for supporting the Transit Museum!
