They were also the first to have LED destination signs and interior next stop signs. That's historically significant IMO.
And obviously the 7K's should be preserved because they represent a historic turning point for Metro. The first of Metro's new generation of rolling stock and the largest single order of rolling stock Metro has ever made.
The 2k, 3k, 4k and 6k were just fleet expansion. Nothing special about them from a historic standpoint.
