Subway design and construction was varied to match the conditions and topography of a city that is incredibly diverse geographically.
The subway's designers, for the most part, planned the railroad in such a way as to not just meet the demands of the time, but also future requirements of a city bursting at the seams with promise and new development.
Service lives of upwards of 35 years are not unusual and with stainless steel construction, common since the late 1960s, cars will remain in service even longer.
New York City Subway: Information from Answers.com (5180 words)
Subway cars (R44s) currently operate on the Staten Island Railway, opened in 1860, but that is not usually considered part of the subway system since it shares no track connections with the subway system and must comply with Federal Railroad Administration standards due to a previous track connection to mainland railroads.
The city was closely involved; every line built for the IRT, and most other lines built or improved for the BRT after 1913, was built by the city and leased to the companies (via the original Contracts 1 and 2 for the IRT subway, and the Dual Contracts for later extensions and widenings).
Cars purchased by the City of New York since the inception of the IND and for the other divisions beginning in 1948 are identified by the letter "R" followed by a number; e.g.: R32.
