A rare sighting these days. Usually Shuttle trains, B F (maybe), J, Z and R use those trains most of the times, but are being retired I presume. You never see that for any other lines, generally.

Actually, an elevator symbol would basically accomplish getting the message across, eliminating the language barrier, that you can take an elevator. It also saves space on the sign for other words...

What was the first stretch of the New York City Subway when it first opened in 1904?

The Original Subway line (NYC had el trains dating back to the 1870s, but many were demolished in the 1930 and 40s) was built by the Interboro Rapid Transit Company

Generally trains are taken out of service on the event of serious vandalism, or at least that is what happens in Toronto.

Subway Tunnel to Open, Storm Repairs Finished

"Subway service through a storm-damaged tunnel between Brooklyn and
Manhattan is set to resume in time for the commute on Monday morning,
according to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s website. The N and R
trains will start running through the Montague Tunnel, which has been closed
since last summer to repair damage caused when Hurricane Sandy struck in
late 2012."

New York Times.

"Workers installed 11,000 feet of new track, three new pumps each
capable of removing 1,900 gallons of water per minute, and
submarine-style waterproof doors to protect equipment against
future flooding. [..] The project cost $250 million — well under the
$308 million initially budgeted, officials said."

New York Daily News. The article has more details.

Less expense, less bureaucracy, less environmental concern, less NIMBYism. To name a few.

Never understood all the fuss about environmental protection in Manhattan. Is the digging going to upset the delicate ecological balance of concrete, bricks, and asphalt? Maybe damage the roots of ghetto palms?
