Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The New York Subway turns 100!

On October 27, 1904, people in the City of New York walked down flights of stairs, paid a five-cent fare, and for the very first time rode beneath the city's streets aboard New York's very first subway.

One of the most fascinating aspects of subway history is the evolution of rolling stock, from the original cars of 1904 to the most modern of today. The punch-out models in the Subway Punch-out Book represent sixteen different subway (and elevated) cars that have provided service in New York over the past hundred years. They range from "high-tech" R-143 units that have recently entered service, to older cars that have not carried revenue passengers for almost 50 years.

Many of these vintage cars can still be experienced in a real-life setting at the New York Transit Museum, in Brooklyn. Here, in a genuine subway station, a wonderful collection of rolling stock has been restored and preserved so future generations will be able to understand something about the subway tradition whose centenary we now celebrate.
