Arnines is a casual term used to refer to 1,703 similar New York City Subway cars built between 1930 and 1940 for the Independent Subway System. The name comes from the literal spelling out of the final contract under which these 1,703 cars were ordered - contract "R9". The last of the cars in this broad grouping were removed from passenger service in 1977. Many pieces of memorabilia, including rollsigns and car number plates, exist today in private collections.
The grouping of these 1,703 cars can also be referred to as R1–9s (pronounced “R one nines” or “R one through nines”).
Today, twenty of these cars remain, preserved by various museums, businesses, organizations, and private individuals.
The cars that remain on New York City Transit Authority property (and their owners) are:
