Transport Fever – Long Island Railroad MP70 EMU
Long Island Railroad MP70 EMU mod for Transport Fever.
The all-aluminum MP70 was the first ‘double deck’ railcar in America, though its method of alternating booth heights both restricted capacity and infuriated passengers. Unpopular for its ‘knee-knocker’ seating and lack of privacy for female passengers on the second level of booths, they were retired in 1972.
