Description
The all-aluminum MP70 was the first 'double deck' railcar in America, though its method of alternating booth heights both restricted capacity and infuriated passengers. Unpopular for its 'knee-knocker' seating and lack of privacy for female passengers on the second level of booths, they were retired in 1972.


Stats for nerds:

Max Speed: 85 MPH
Capacity: 132/4 = 33
Power: 670 horsies
Tractive Effort: 90 kN-m
Available: 1932-1972 (LIRR scheme 1932-68, World's Fair scheme 62-68, MTA scheme 1968-1972)

[t.co]

to be honest I don't know what the weight of the unpowered car would be -- i'll see about correcting it to 1-2 tons lower but I doubt it would be much more of a difference

Love this model! Although I think there is a minor error. Both the power car, and unpowered car have the same weight. Is this correct?

@Marcus.Mackan.Eklund - Sorry, @donoteat isn't the guy to talk to. He makes American stuff ONLY.
