  1. Taken back in March and May of 2016 on a weekday. In the first video, due to track maintenance, all uptown & trains ran express from 3rd Ave-149th St to East 180th Street in the South Bronx vicinity. The same goes in the third clip in the downtown direction. Also, in the middle, an electronic strip map dedicated to the / lines. The joint strip map was installed back in 2016 in all R142s that operated on the and lines, collectively.
  2. Various weekend construction has train service suspended between Jamaica Center, Queens and Crescent Street/Broadway Junction, Brooklyn, as well between Hewes Street, Brooklyn and Essex Street, Manhattan. Shuttle buses provide alternate service for the closed segments along the line. Video clips were taken between 2016 and 2019. Taken back in 2016. Weekend track work in the Bronx had the IRT Dyre Avenue Line suspended between East 180th Street and Dyre Avenue, also on the IRT Pelham Line between Parkchester and Pelham Bay Park. Action was filmed at the East 180th Street and Pelham Parkway stations for the shuttle bus and for the shuttle bus at Parkchester. Taken back in 2014 & 2015. This is the final installment of the Novabus RTS-06 saga. The reason this video is called the lost files because I happened to found these videos sitting in my Google photos and wanted to share this last piece of RTS nostalgia. These RTS units were in service for a good 19-22 years, until retirement between 2016 and 2019. In this this video, we'll take a look at the last high-floor series making trips in Queens and Manhattan. Its just footage clips that weren't added to the RTS Memorial Day tribute video. There's also an on-board video of the RTS in Southeast Queens. I do want to apologize for the crappy resolution on most of these videos. So, without further ado, please enjoy this RTS lost files video on this Flashback Friday. Taken back in 2016 & 2018. Weekend track had the IRT Flushing Line suspended between 74th St-Broadway and 34th Street-Hudson Yards. So, shuttle buses provided alternate service in both Queens and Manhattan. Please enjoy.
  3. Taken back in 2015. Seen in this video, there are the 2015 NovaBus LFS operating on the B45, Q24, & Q56 Bus Routes from the East New York bus depot. Also, as an extra clip, the 2012 NovaBus LFSA #5870 (+SelectBusService Wrap) on the M103 Bus Route. This clip was taken back in 2016. NOTE: In The video, I forgot to mention that the 2015 NovaBus LFS 8120-8123 was also apart of the ENY roster and was later sent to the Charleston Depot in Staten Island. Please enjoy this #FlashbackFriday video.
  4. This video was taken on 5/25/2019 on Memorial Day weekend. Trains ran the line between Chambers Street and South Ferry, and service was suspended due to station maintenance. Here is the train serving the newly recommissioned, WTC-Cortlandt station on the Line. Also, The MTA will begin the rollout of the new fare payment system, called OMNY. Starting May 31, you’ll be able to use your contactless credit, debit, or reloadable prepaid card, or your mobile phone or wearable, to board all Staten Island buses and the 4 5 6 lines between Grand Central-42 Street and Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr. OMNY will only be available on a full-fare, pay-per-ride basis until every subway station, bus route, and the Staten Island Railway is outfitted with this new technology. Until then, you can keep using MetroCard. Keep an eye out for updates as the MTA introduce OMNY throughout the New York region.

  9. This lengthy video is a commemoration of the IRT Flushing Line also known as the "International Express", which started service in Queens 102 years ago on April 21st, 2019. What makes this line so special is that it uses 11 cars, the 2nd subway line to have Communiations-Based Train Control(CBTC) (1st in the IRT division). The line was ranked the best by the straphangers campaign in 1997-2000; 2009-2010; 2014-2016. The week before, a photo of a newly manufactured R211 subway car appeared on reddit.com. Here is a commentary explaining the full details of the car orders, and the subway lines they'll run on. This commentary is based on the upcoming planned service changes involving the subway line, as well as two new free bus routes; B91 and B92.
  10. Last year in 2018, I attended the New York International Auto Show. There were a lot of hot new fancy cars that were showcased this past year. There were also a 0 to 60 MPH speed test with the Toyota Camrys and a roughness test with the Jeep Cherokees. I cannot wait to see what this year's auto show will bring. This year's NY Auto Show will take place on April 19th-28th, so go out there and see the new cars. Please enjoy.
