"Brookville Equipment Corporation was awarded a federally funded contract on October 21, 2021, for the conversion of a total of four retired R110A test fleet passenger railcars into two pump trains to be used for flooding mitigation in NYCT's underground subway system.

"Each pump and generator car set will include one pump car and one generator car to be used in consist with NYCT’s existing hose and reach cars to pump water out of the subway system tunnels during special periods of emergency response, including following hurricanes and periods of unusually heavy rainfall."
