Returning for the first time in a decade, the popular "Red Bird" scheme and the classic MTA silver and blue markings come equipped with Proto-Sound 3.0 and feature M.T.H.'s transit stop technology. Designed specifically for our municipal transit cars, the system allows you to program the train to stop automatically at pre-set stops you designate, even in Conventional Mode. When you set the train to run on automatic, it stops itself at locations you define and calls out station names that you select in advance. You can let the subway run itself. And when you program it for an out-and-back route, it even reverses itself and heads back downtown when it reaches the end of the line. Along the way, in addition to the station stop sounds, there are door opening and closing sounds and platform sounds. There is no more realistically operating subway set available short of 12":1' scale.

The IRT Division of the New York subway was the first built, and its narrower tunnels require smaller cars than the BMT and IND Divisions.
