Floor Plan of the NYC-38. Rendering made by Joe Rosenthal.


As of December 2015, the NYC-38 had many upgrades done including new wood veener, stainless, paint, and counter top in the interior of the car. Starting on December 20, 2015, the car has started to undergo a complete upgrade of the interior. Our dedicated crew at our South Yard Maintance facility have gutted the interior and have replaced the flooring. Our crew has also painted most the interior on the B end of the car. New yellow for behind the kitchen and the tavern, and new blue for the ceiling behind the kitchen. New padding and carpet are being have been installed, and new LED lighting is being installed to give the car a more modern touch while still keeping with the 1950's look. More electrical outlets are being installed throutout the car to help keep up with modern electronics. New heater sheilds are being made from scratch to resemble the original heater shields that we in the car. The restoom wil getting a remodel as well including a new floor, hot water, and a cabinate under the sink.
