  1. No... NO!!! There goes any chance of the gaining any respect from the general public in terms of service and reputation. He is gonna be missed by alot of New Yorkers for a long time. It feels like the subway is doomed. 😞
  2. I should mention by base I mean the square on the bottom part of the turnstyle above the MetroCard swipe. If that doesn't count then I apologize for the mistake.
  3. 137th Street-City College has bases. May look at the rest of the line north of that stop sometime soon to look out for anything OMNY related on the turnstyles.
  4. 2356-2360 of the has the original side signs although the front one has been updated.
  5. Is there a good chance the runs for the first day will not happen this weekend? I'm seeing the weather for this Sunday, and it's rain all day (i.e. people less likely to attend, not to mention keeping the vintage equipment away from bad weather as what happened with the Lo-V a few years ago; a run to Yankee Stadium cancelled due to rain).
  6. Assortment of vintage train operations of the early fall from late September to late October. It has been a long time since I've last done a dedicated photo post, but I thought I'd go ahead anyways since the heavily awaited Holiday Rides are starting this weekend. We will begin by viewing the Parade of Trains and end with the 115th anniversary celebration plus a video. Enjoy!
  7. Was onboard a Manhattanville unit on the M96 yesterday (an Orion VII NG) that had a 'coming soon' reader. Didn't memorize the number though.
  8. Because that is where the Park Avenue Tunnel starts and the tunnel planners had to space out the northbound and southbound tracks to accommodate this, hence why the local track is a bit taller than the express track there. It's interesting to note here that while that stop was being built, trolleys ran through the tunnel before cars and (correct me if I'm wrong) the area wasn't that fully developed then as it today.
  9. and between 116th Street and 42nd Street. Trains both local and express operate at pretty fast speeds on that section. Also: - Mets-Willets Point and Queensboro Plaza (both AM and PM rush) and - Roosevelt Avenue and Forest Hills-71st Avenue (you will see alot of fast express train flybys at the local stops between those stations. and - 34th Street and West 4th Street - 21st Street and Greenpoint Avenue - 145th Street and Dyckman Street
  10. The MTA will commence a study that will bring back passenger service to the Bay Ridge Branch, a line long served by freight trains. The article states that the study would be the first part towards a possible Triboro RX, a proposed train line that has been brought up constantly by politicians since the mid-1990s. https://brooklynreporter.com/2019/10/mta-studies-plan-to-resurrect-passenger-trains-between-bay-ridge-and-queens/?fbclid=IwAR3arrHpv-dcarlWAJ2G1wF5WzoZ49HAx7Fv1aqhIimP0cp7NWnjLbkB3sY Let's see where this will go from here. It will be a pretty interesting study to look at. By the way, 2024 (5 years from the current time) will be the 100th anniversary of the final time the LIRR ran passenger service on the branch.
  11. Riding the R62s today throughout Manhattan and I see car numbers which remind me of the crucial years of the history of our world: 1776 on the - year of the creation of the United States 1492 on the - year that Christopher Columbus first discovered the Americas Just an interesting observation.
