In addition to Transit’s regular monthly sales offerings, we are very pleased to present a sales program designed especially for buyers interested in acquiring a little bit of NYC Transit’s History.
Along with its outgoing fleet of buses and subway cars, Transit has Station Signs and Fixtures, Vintage Tokens, and other “collectibles” such as Handholds, Doors, Seating and Destination Signs from retired subway cars including the Transit’s historic “Redbirds”, “Brightliners” (R32), R38, R40 and R42 for sale when available.
Each month we feature items of interest to buyers, collectors or anyone who shares an interest in NYC Transit’s History. If you would like to be placed on our mailing list, please email us your name, address and type of material you are interested in to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All items are sold with a Certificate of Authenticity!
Minimum orders of $125.00 or more. Including processing fee.

*NEW ADDITION* Emergency Telephone and Alarm Box with Mounting Bracket
This will not help you in an Emergency, but at least you will look prepared!
These unique pieces were removed from retired “Brightliners” (R32), R38s, R40s, R42s and “Redbirds”. These cars are now serving as artificial ocean reefs in Maryland, Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia, Delaware and New Jersey. The plates are engraved:
“Builders – St. Louis Car Co.”
“Sumitomo Corp. 1988”
Both companies are no longer in business at this time. You MUST get your hands on these!!
