As part of fleet upgrades in the 1950s, the IRT purchased 250 R21 in
1956/57 and 450 R22 class subway cars in 1957/58 from St. Louis Car Co. for
use on New York's Interboro Rapid Transit (IRT).
Both classes had drop-sash door windows instead of the round type used on
the R17 series. During their service lives, three R22 cars served on the
Times Square and Grand Central shuttle in automatic train operation, and
three different cars served to demonstrate crewless operation. After
retirement, some were converted to work cars. The last revenue run for
these cars was in 1987.
