The R-46 cars, long awaited by New York subway riders, represent the largest order ever placed for rail passenger cars in the U.S., a total of $214 million for 754 cars. These technologically sophisticated vehicles presented many design and production problems. Introduction of the cars into service was then delayed by problems with the cam control system.
