The First Subway Set

In 1998, MTH brought out their very first New York City Subway set.  It was part of the RailKing line and was lettered for the "D" train (which I always call the Brighton Express, the name that preceded the letters).  It was equipped with the original Protosound system (PS1) and given the internal complexity of the subway sets, I decided not to convert it to the later Protosound 2 (PS2) system.  As you can see in this short True HD 1080p video, it still looks quite good (the later sets offer more detail, such as full interiors with passengers) and runs very well.  For the era, the sounds are OK.
