IRT Subway Lo-V Car No. 5600

This car is representative of the early IRT fleet of over 2500 cars. The spartan interiors have rattan bench seats along the side walls of the car. The Lo-V designation refers to the use of low voltage current (32 Volts) in the motorman's controls which was introduced in 1915 and became a standard safety feature. In its later days, 5600 was used by the Transit Authority as a training car.
