  1. Here is your blue as requested. Your will be done this evening. Hope you enjoy!
  2. So? The R62As were a fixture on the / The R142As were a fixture on the . Things change.
  3. Sorry, I didn't read your post properly. It should've been all clear to me if I'd gotten to work right away, but I only read your request at a glance. Here you go! I'm afraid I had to change the colour of the bullet, because if it had stayed the same colour as here on the forums, it would've been the exact same colour as the background of the display. Hope that's alright. Hope you enjoy! Here you go: Hope you enjoy!
  4. Oh yes, I'd quite forgotten that the and were more limited in those days then they are now. Thanks all! The answers will likely be in the article for the two trains on Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E_(New_York_City_Subway_service)#Archer_and_63rd_Street_changes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F_(New_York_City_Subway_service)
  5. No connections there? I have to run some errands but I'll have your image ready by this evening.
  6. Was browsing NYC Subway last night and came upon this map of service from 1987. https://www.nycsubway.org/perl/caption.pl?/img/maps/system_1987.gif Would anyone more familiar with service in those days happen to know what a bolded vs non bolded letter/number at a station is supposed to indicate? Best example is along Fulton St, each station is being marked as being serviced by both the and but express stations like Euclid have the in bold. I thought it might be late night service, but I assumed that wasn't so because the map is labelled on the below page as being daytime service, and there is a separate map on there for night service. https://www.nycsubway.org/wiki/Historical_Maps#1980-Present If anyone has any idea, that would be most appreciated.
  7. That can be done, but what would you like in the terminus box?
  8. Here you go: Hope you enjoy! Please let me know if there are any errors or any other displays you'd like to see.
  9. This topic has been dead for a very long time but I thought I'd try to revive it with something that may be of interest to some of you all. For those of you who remember the R160 FIND creator, I have taken it upon myself to recreate the template that was available in that app during that time. I did my best. Here is the base template: As compared to (almost) the same image I made in the FIND creator so many years ago. The others here are a variety of fictional sign programs I've created; some from NYC, some from Toronto, and one even from as far afield as Bratislava, Slovakia. If anyone would like any signs made, feel free to post in here. All existing NYC subway colours and routes are on the table; I can also fill the route bullet in with any colour definable on the RGB spectrum and any two digit number or two letter character combination.
  10. This might come as a shock to you, but most people who ride the New York subway don't spend nearly as much time philosophizing about the nature of respect and pay directed at the subway vs. the LIRR as you do.
  11. Graphic design people: for those of who you remember Gorgor's subway FIND maker, would you happen to be able to identify the fonts used? I'm attempting to try creating some of my own based on the original template, but if anyone is able to identify the fonts used for the subway bullet, the terminal name/service information, "Accessible station", "New York City Transit", or any of the text that refers to stops along the bottom, it would be a great help. Thanks!
  12. Anyone know where the centre track near the Grant Avenue portal heads to? Was watching this video earlier, the track seen at 33:10 dips into the tunnel and then seems to run under the station platform?
  13. In all honesty, I'm not sure enough is being done in the circumstances that are present. I often get the impression that aside from a fringe group of feminists on the internet, no one really seems to give much of a care. I remember back in the fall of 2016, when Trump was under fire for the explicit comments that he was making - there was no shortage of people who were ready to dismiss the comments as just "boys being boys". I think that even a modicum of self reflection on the part of these people would go a long way, but perhaps you're right that it's not realistic.
