The old, clunky C train subway cars, still running after nearly half a century, are about to be retired.

The MTA is expected to approve the purchase of 300 new subway cars on Wednesday.

That could mean an upgrade for the C line, home to the oldest trains in the subway system.

The MTA, however, has not decided whether the C line will get the brand-new cars or hand-me-downs from another line.

Stay tuned.
