General Overhaul Program Panel Discussion

February 13, 2020 | 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$15 / $10 for Members

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.

Presented in conjunction with the current exhibition, Reign of the Redbirds, join us for a panel discussion with William Allcot, MTA Superintendent of Car Equipment, Bill Wall of Rapid Transit Operations 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.
