The ME-1 was a rapid transit car built from 1925 to 1926 by the Standard Steel Car Company for the Staten Island Railway and later also used in the New York City Subway. They were the first electric cars to run in revenue service on the SIRT. They are also frequently referred to as MU-1s or MUE-1s. The 25 cars purchased by the New York City Transit Authority to run in the subway were nicknamed B-29s, a reference to a large aircraft of the same name. This nickname was derived from the cars' large size (67 feet or 20.42 meters) and the fact that the cars had been renumbered for subway service into the 2900's.

  • The ME-1 (also known as MU-1 or MUE-1) was a rapid transit car built from 1925 to 1926 by the Standard Steel Car Company. They were primarily used on the Staten Island Railway and later also used in the New York City Subway. 100 cars were built, numbered 300-389 (motors) and 500-509 (trailers). They were the first electric cars to run in revenue service on the SIRT. The ME-1s entered service in 1925 and ran continuously on all three SIRT lines. Sometime between 1953 and 1954, 25 cars were purchased by the New York City Transit Authority to run on the subway. Numbered 2900-2924, these cars were nicknamed B-29s, a reference to a large aircraft of the same name, due of their large size (67 feet or 20.42 meters) and the fact that they had been renumbered for subway service into the 2900's. The NYCT cars continued to run until 1961, when they were replaced by the R27s and R30s. The SIRT cars lasted until 1973, when they were replaced by the R44s. Two cars were preserved, while the rest were scrapped. (en)
