Close-up: JAY Tower New Car and Car Modernization Sign view NE 02/12/57 (Faxon-Keller)

Note that the LIRR modernized 130 cars in the 15 month period between 11/8/55 and 2/12/57 . . . That's 8.67 cars per month (2.16 cars per week).  That's a LOT of work when you figure they also had regularly scheduled maintenance on other equipment as well as making repairs to broken down cars!
