Scene Around Town - Subway on the Street

I love photos of the unexpected.
I've seen these subway cars being hauled down the street at night, but the photos I managed were never quite good enough.
Now, I'm not quite sure why they couldn't transport these trains on the existing underground rails that they ride on, but I thank the MTA for a wonderful and interesting photo op ;)

it kind of looks like they were stripped down. maybe they were on their way to the subway reef?

Are you kidding? This is NYC. If it isn't nailed down, it was probably stripped down ;)

Those subway cars are on their way to Ohio for scrapping. They stopped reefing after the MTA discovered stainless steel cars deteriorated faster in salt water.
