So granted the old Long Island Rail Road cars are pretty gross they have some perks too.
I need to point out my favorite because I was stupid excited getting in this car today.
The luggage rack is wider and lower. Huge bonus for me. I never use the luggage rack on the newer cars because I am both a tad too short and my small luggage doesn't really fit up there anyway. Poor design.
Other then memories that's probably the only bonus. Haha!
