A chapter of Montreal’s transit system is coming to a close.

The MR-63 Metro trains are retiring from service.

In honour of their time as the underground transport unit, the classic trains are going on a farewell tour, allowing Montrealers to ride them one last time before they punch out from a lengthy career.

The MR-63 trains, which have been in use since 1966, will be replaced with the more spacious, modernized MPM-10 Azur trains before being sent off to a museum.

Having each travelled more than 4 million kilometres in their career, the OG train will make an appearance on every metro line during rush hour on the week of June 18.

52 years of loyal service have come down to four last trips. The final journey of the MR-63 will take place on the yellow line on June 18, the green line on June 19, and the orange line on June 20 before making it’s very last stop on the blue line on June 21.
