Stumbled across a rolling stock status page when looking at the #newtrain twitter feed. Shows the reason why car is no long in service and in some cases their disposition.

My favorite to ride is the 7000 series because of the technology. After that, I would say Rehabbed Betas 2/3000 series.

My favorite based on the sounds they make would be the 5000 series and the 1000 series. I think the 5000 series makes the best sound.

I hate the 4000 series.

My favorite type is not listed in the poll. Any type that has functioning air conditioning and doesn't structurally disintegrate on impact.

Go for it.

Title the thread "Favorite car type II" and lock it with the other 4 threads at the top of the list.
