History: Kawasaki completed delivered of LIRR’s 134 bi-level cars in 19XX. Passengers now enjoy a smooth, quiet ride, sitting two abreast in ergonomic, side cantilevered seats that offer more leg room and luggage/storage area. Kawasaki worked with LIRR to incorporate features that appeal to its riders. Focus groups allowed passengers to select the seats and color schemes..
The bi-levels comfortably accommodate 60 passengers on the upper levels and 62 passengers on the lower level with additional seating on the middle level on the ends of the car. The LIRR delivery includes C-cars (cab cars) equipped with an engineman's compartment for push-pull operation and a restroom, T/T-cars (trailer cars with restrooms), and T-cars (trailer cars).
