The Slant Nosed Subway

I remember well when these slant-nosed futuristic R40 subway cars showed up on the F train — the Culver line on McDonald Ave. — in Brooklyn in the mid to late 1960's.  Originally, it was quite dangerous to move between cars, so shortly thereafter they were retrofitted with the pantograph safety gates.  In mid-2008, MTH brought out a Premier line model of these cars, with the added safety features.  The cars are highly detailed inside and out, down to the air conditioning vents in the ceiling of the cars!  In this True HD 1080p video, you can see the cars proceeding along, stopping at the station with the appropriate sounds, and then performing a fast run-by.  This set is fun since I'm originally from Brooklyn and I'm familiar with all of the locations that get mentioned!
