Long Island RR New EMU Design
Title:  Long Island RR New EMU Design
Description:  This is an artist rendering for press release October 17, 1968 concerning the new Long Island commuter EMU's being built by the Budd Co. The press release from the Cleveland GE office (J.L. Moline) reads "The Long Island Rail Raod will take on a new look when the first of 270 electric, air-conditioned cars like these will be delivered during the Fall of 1968. Propulsion and automatic speed regulation systems supplied by General Electric will play a major role in maintaining a high level of passenger comfort and efficiency on the high-speed commuter cars. The addition of these sleek, stainless-steel, 100-mph cars to the nation's most heavily traveled commuter line will mark a new level of service for Long Island commuters, according to officials of the Metropolitan Commuter Trasnportation Authority of New York, operators of the Long Island Rail Road. The cars are being built by The Budd Co." J.L. Moline
