Redbirds are named for the deep red color they were painted, known as "Gunn Red" in honor of its originator and NYC Transit Authority President at the time, David L. Gunn. The deep red colored paint was chosen to combat Graffiti.

The final trip made by a Redbird train was on November 3, 2003 on the Flushing Line. Redbirds now have either been sunk off the coast of Delaware, Georgia, New Jersey, South Carolina, and Virginia as artificial reefs to promotion marine life and some still operate in the system repurposed as garbage trains or rider cars for work trains.

The New York Transit Museum's "Train of Many Colors" uses Redbirds along with other historical cars in their original paint schemes.
