Letter: Nobody wanted middle seat in '71

Your Oct. 18 obituary for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's first chairman was well done ["William Ronan, 1912-2014"].

The photo from 1971 shows that even 43 years ago, no one wanted to sit in the middle seat. I would love to know if that train car is still in service, as it certainly looks familiar.
