  1. Here is this from a great website with posts about LIRR service: https://derekstadler.wordpress.com/portfolio-2/collections-photography/maspeth-from-small-dutch-community-to-part-of-the-great-metropolis-final/poignant-memories-of-another-day-history-of-rail-service-to-richmond-hill-and-the-former-communities-of-clarenceville-and-morris-park/

  3. This is a sign from 174th-175th, and I am trying to date the closure of the entrance. @MHV9218 @Lance Do either of you know when this sign could be from? Thanks.
  4. They still have them at stops on the that had their renovations pushed back.
  5. I think this might have to do with the fact that there was a plan to send the G and N to Jamaica Center. After that fell though, they started pasting over the signs. The side platform at Hoyt-Schermerhorn was used to segregate the additional fares from the Aqueduct Specials and JFK Express. This was also done at the 42nd Street L.L.
  6. Concerning signage on CPW, here is a photo from Jeremiah Cox of the subwaynut.com from 2004. I would link to his site, but he is in the process of getting stuff back up after it was hacked. The 2/5 sign I showed earlier reminds me of some of the signs at the deep tunnel stations (Clark Street, Fulton (Broadway/Nassau) Untitled by Union Turnpike, on Flickr @MHV9218In regard to the AA signage, here is an image of a pasted on sticker sign. This sign is interesting as a white on black sticker was put on to fix the E routing, but the old E bullet is still on the sign. Untitled by Union Turnpike, on Flickr Here are two images with the diamond CC and the K, remarkably.

There is the original Vignelli sign underneath. Then you have stickers pasted on it. You can also see the bullet outline kind of bullet on the sign.

  7. You go into ridiculously specific details about when stations got which signs, which stations still have the old signs, but are stickered or covered over, the specific materials, and more. There is plenty for you to write up if you choose to. It is really hard to look through all these clips since they are almost all exclusively from crimes, derailments, 12-9s, aftermaths of shootings/murders, etc.—events that would require stock footage. I even saw footage of the Intervale Avenue fire in 1989, and of the aftermath of derailments at Columbus Circle, Hunts Point Avenue, and more. Here are a few more interesting ones I found. 1989 1989 by Union Turnpike, on Flickr 1991 I have seen a few other images of comically small lettering on subway route bullets. Note the tilted B. 1991 by Union Turnpike, on Flickr 1987 Note the crossover to other trains sign on the now-closed platform at Hoyt-Schermerhorn for connections to/from the JFK Express. 1987 Hoyt by Union Turnpike, on Flickr 1987 Hoyt by Union Turnpike, on Flickr You can tell that this sign was put on top of another one. 1987 Hoyt by Union Turnpike, on Flickr 1987 Hoyt by Union Turnpike, on Flickr This sign at Spring Street from 1994 is of particular interest I love how they creatively use a down arrow to cover the .

  8. Thank you so much for you analysis. You really need to write something up about the history of subway signs. Here are a few more interesting ones I found: These are from 1990: 1990- 103rd Street by Union Turnpike, on Flickr NW corner of 61/CPW by Union Turnpike, on Flickr NW corner of 61/CPW by Union Turnpike, on Flickr You can see the C pasted over the diamond C, the spot where the K used to be, the 1/9 bullet
  9. @MHV9218@Lance I found a great website with old subway footage and found some interesting subway signs. I have never seen this sign format with a small bullet and the line name underneath before. Do you know anything about it? This is from 1990. https://www.historicfilms.com/search/?q="subway"#p1t48155i2435o2990 Screen Shot 2020-11-26 at 9.34.20 AM by Union Turnpike, on Flickr Screen Shot 2020-11-26 at 9.34.31 AM by Union Turnpike, on Flickr Screen Shot 2020-11-26 at 9.34.42 AM by Union Turnpike, on Flickr Screen Shot 2020-11-26 at 9.40.55 AM by Union Turnpike, on Flickr From the 1990s: Screen Shot 2020-11-26 at 9.17.25 AM by Union Turnpike, on Flickr From 1993 (the bullet is covered over) Signage at Kew Gardens from July 16, 1993 stock footage by Union Turnpike, on Flickr July 16, 1993 stock footage by Union Turnpike, on Flickr
  10. Can you elaborate on the issue with the C/R's position on the R62 and R62As?
  11. They don't care, and the NYPD is on a policing slowdown.
