"Redbirds at Morris Park"

New York City Transit's "Rail Adhesion Train", led by St. Louis Car Company R33 #9323, passes under the original New York Westchester & Boston Morris Park station house on the IRT Dyre Avenue Line. Morris Park was opened on May 29, 1912 and is the only station on the line listed under the National Register of Historic Places. Rail Adhesion Trains, also known as "Gel Trains", make one nightly round trip on select portions of specific New York City Transit subway lines applying a sandite solution to the rails to eliminate slip slide conditions during the leaf season. These trains usually consist of old subway cars that have been retired from revenue service and converted to work train duties. The Dyre Ave Gel Train is the A Division's only Rail Adhesion train; consisting of R33 "Redbird" cars and running on the original New York, Westchester & Boston Railroad right of way between East 180th Street and Dyre Avenue.
