  1. Theoretically speaking, this could've been a whole lot worse if it was a 40 footer. Could you imagine if a 40 footer to the plunge below and all of the bus took impact. The fact that this was an Artic was probably the best case scenario for this type of crash b/c atleast the back side didn't topple over and kept the rest of the bus from sliding down. But if that was C40LF and it had the same fate, who's not to say it takes a nosedive and then on the rebound the back portion of the bus falls and then burst into flames on impact. Might even explode due to the distance of that fall. Definitely the worst bus crash I've ever seen, but might have been the best case scenario in the case of this type of accident.
  2. They're still a good amount of them. Cypress Hills, 85 St, Woodhaven Blvd and other queens stations on the still have them. The line north of 52 street have them. Intervale Ave yes. And 207 & 215 Sts on the . Like seeing those screens, one of the few remains of the old MTA. Its the windscreens, some old helvitca signs, and some M logos, nice little throwbacks. Speaking of that. What was the first elevated line to get the modern station rehab. With the yellow lego strip and modern windscreen design. Another Red Windscreen pic. https://www.nycsubway.org/perl/show?102203 https://www.nycsubway.org/perl/show?102204 https://www.nycsubway.org/perl/show?102110
  3. https://www.nycsubway.org/perl/show?25586 https://www.nycsubway.org/perl/show?25584 https://www.nycsubway.org/perl/show?25576 https://www.nycsubway.org/perl/show?25581 Came across this weird find on nycsubway.org where it shows the windscreens at the Court Sq (45th Road) station painted red. Does anyone know why, and if any other stations have been painted like this before.
  4. I'm unfamiliar with the line. I want to fan the R32s and want to know which stations have the fastest arrivals. I want to hear the fast deceleration of the westinghouse motors on the R32s. I know that the has a lot of slow sections like the S Curve, Bway Junction, before the Willy B bridge. I want to know which station(s) hauls the most ass on the line.
  5. Think they'll keep a 10 car set to do a farewell run? Of all the cars, The R32s deserve a farewell run the most. (Albeit prob in like 2 years from now).
  6. I remeber reading some where that some one burned the Intervale Av Station in the 80s or 90s. But this has to be the worst case of arson ever commited on the Subway. Rest In Piece to the T/0 and they should honor him in some way. When they rebuild that station they should make a plaqe of him. Or even rename the station after him. But he deserves to honored for his bravery. Rename the station 110 St - Goble.
  7. You guys think that the is going to touch the rollsigns on the R68s/68As or leave em alone. Still don't know why they touched the ones on the R62As.
  8. Just for fun, I challenge you all to bus fan from the staircases of els. I tried it last summer and I like the angles and views. For ex: 4468 from 82 Street I'm always trying to find new views to switch it up. Anyone got other suggestions?
  9. What if the was to forced to stop trains from entering and leaving the Concourse Yard/Jerome Av yard for a serious repair. No trains coming out. How do you manage a shortage of cars to the . Concourse Yard has 276 R68s Jerome has 210 R142 and 220 R142A
  10. Well the Next Gens are perfect for Manhattanville because hybrids are good for stop and go traffic. But those 3rd Gens could've easily done their thing in Queens or Brooklyn. I doubt that they'll retire there anyway. Once they're closer to retirement, watch them send the 3rd Gens to Bus Co. Were all the old buses go before they die.
  11. Just want to here your thoughts. What buses do you rock with right now? As for now I only care about. 1. Nova LFS (2016s and 2019s) 2. XN40s and XN60s 3. 6500s and Old Gens. Everything else is meh or just there to me. Rest In Piece to the Real Buses of NY. RTS, Orion 5/CNG, Orion 7 CNG, D60s, 1999 C40LFs, and most MCI D4500 with the Detroit Diesels.
  12. I just like to refer to trains by their route and location. Astoria Line New Lots Line Brooklyn Queens Crosstown
