    Something you don't see everyday. Two MP15AC locomotives hauling four M7A cars on the approach to the Hell Gate bridge. Happens on Thursdays, but I've seen the time vary from a quarter to 10 to almost 12. This is being done to install PTC on the M7A.





    Plus ACS-64 #662 being hauled after becoming disabled earlier in the day.

    That could very much explain the 2-4 car sets of MNRR cars I see at the LIRR shop.

    • LocationNear a station in Central Queens where three (E) trains terminate late in the AM Rush Hour on weekdays (at 8:27, 9:02, 9:13 from WTC, arriving at my home station at 9:09, 9:44 and 9:56 respectively) and was the terminal for E and EE trains from its opening on December 31, 1936 to April 24, 1937. This station is also home to R160 or R46 layups during the evening and weekend hours.

    Wonderful job. I saw the video, but I forgot to mention that I love it. Keep it up!
