Moved down the New Haven Line (possibly to DRM, although i'll play it safe) with 413 the night of 6/1/19, as per videos posted by Gregory Grice.

His shots were of the move to Stamford, where it sat for a few days. It and the F10 moved got to Danbury at about 4am today (6/6/19) as per DRM's Facebook page.

I think we've got a picture of it somewhere, don't we? When Danny Boy was still calling it the FDR car down below? I've got to go back to look.
Next stop, Willoughby

Well there goes a "movie prop",last seen in the remake of Pelham 123. Has DRM posted a pic of this car and the M-2 pair on their website?
Although late director Tony Scott states on the DVD commentary that the footage was shot on the Waldorf platform, it was not. Shot in the outer IND platforms at Hoyt-Schemerhorn with prop signs used, although some footage was shot inside the Waldorf interior.
