One of the most fascinating elements of the New York City subway system’s 116-year history is the design of the train cars themselves. From the short-lived, opulent pneumatic train cars of the early 1870s to the colorful World’s Fair cars of the 1960s to the contemporary train cars we ride today, there has simply been no shortage of incredible train car design throughout the decades.

Join Visitor Experience Facilitator Niko Goutakolis for a digital discussion where we will examine some of the most influential subway cars and manufacturers to have hit the New York City rails. Explore the different eras of alluring subway car design and learn future plans for train car design in New York City.
