  1. Welcome to the first subway station tour of 2020. The 111th Street station (BMT Jamaica Line) was closed January 14, 2019 for six months of structural repairs. Unlike the repairs done at 121st Street and 104th Street, which were done one platform at a time, both platforms were closed simultaneously to cut the work from 12 months to 6 months. As a result, the station reopened on June 11, 2019. This station formerly had another entrance/exit at the east (railroad north) end. The staircase to 113th Street was removed, but the elevated station house beneath the tracks and single staircase to each platform remain boarded up and intact. The station house is now used for storage and offices. I decided to take action and make up for lost time and what better way than to film the 111th St line stop, also featuring an R143 and an R160 on layup, as well as an R160 (to Jamaica Center) and a temporary out of retirement R42 (to Broad St)*. Please enjoy. * The R42s are temporarily out of retirement due to the R179s having door malfunction problems, which ultimately got pulled out of service.
  2. New Blogpost: R179s & 7 Line Awkwafina There's a new voice of the 7 Line, and here name is Awkwafina. Awkwafina, real name Nora Lum. Lum, a Queens native actress and rapper, has her brand new show appear on Comedy Central named Awkwafina is Nora From Queens. Her show will premiere on Wednesday 1/22/2020 at 10:30PM/9:30C. In order to get pumped up for the show, the MTA recorded Lum's voice doing the train announcements along the IRT Flushing Line. The announcements started this past Wednesday and will be available until 1/22/2020. Seen here are the trains running along the IRT Seventh Avenue Line. Stops were made at Times Square-42nd Street and 125th St/Lenox Avenue. Taken back in 2016 & 2017.
  3. The Jamaica-Coney Island Fleet is underway. In this video, we have the R46 Train via Crosstown and the R46 Train via the Line. I rather showcase the memories of the R46 (F)/(R) Trains than hunt down R46 (F)/(R) trains throughout the entire subway system. This is Part 1 of 3. Two more parts are coming soon in 2020. Please enjoy.
  4. Due to the Fix & Fortify, two-phase flood mitigation work along the Hammels Wye, from April 9th to May 18th, 2018 and again from July 2nd to September 3rd, 2018, the Rockaway Shuttle operated from end to end between Far Rockaway and Rockaway Park. Between April 9 and May 18, 2018, limited rush hour A service to/from Rockaway Park was suspended. The second phase, from July 1 to September 3, diverted all Far Rockaway-bound A trips to Rockaway Park, with Rockaway Park Shuttle trains being rerouted to the Far Rockaway branch through the southern leg of Hammels Wye. Please enjoy.
  5. This is a podcast video based on the service changes that will be coming over to the subway line in April 2020. Please enjoy. What on your thoughts on the upcoming line changes? Please comment below down in the description box on my YouTube channel.
  6. This past weekend, the MTA's New York Transit Museum, held their 5th annual Parade Of Trains over on the BMT Brighton Line at the Brighton Beach station. This year's attendees were the BRT Brooklyn Union Elevated Cars, BRT / BMT Standards, IND R1/9s, and the new consist coupled sets of R-33 / R-38, which were built by the St. Louis Car Company. Please enjoy this blast from the past experience.
  7. Here is a brand new Kawasaki M9 set (both 10 and 12 car sets) performing it in-passenger revenue run. Also featuring late AM rush hour action at the Jamaica station with the M3s, M7s, and the DE30ACs/DM30ACs, as well as a new platform construction work. Please enjoy.
  8. Here is a full HubTalk commentary of the Astoria Blvd American Disabilities Act and Station Renovation. The station was closed from March 2019 and won't reopen until December 2019. The station is also getting elevators installed. Please enjoy this new and improved commentary.
  9. Hello. This is a two part saga of the Buses Of Broward County. I visited Fort Lauderdale, Florida back on August 14th-21st. The bus system in Fort Lauderdale is known as the Broward County Transit. This agency has buses manufactured from Gillig (Advantage 40' not shown in this video), New Flyer Industries, NABI (North American Bus Industries-a subsidiary brand of New Flyer Industries), and MCI (Motor Coach Industries-not shown in this video). (Part I) (Part II) Photos Below
  10. Trains operated between Metropolitan Avenue & 34th St-Herald Square, and then, were rerouted via the Line between 42nd St-Bryant Park and 145th St, the last stop this past weekend. This detour was due to no service on the IRT Broadway-7th Avenue Line between Brooklyn and Harlem. Action was filmed at Bryant Park, Rockerfeller Center, and the newly renovated station stops of 72nd, 86th, and Cathedral Parkway-110th Street. There's also interior train action; lastly, to be honest, the MTA should've ran special Train service for those two weekends. As always, please enjoy.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. Seen here is the all new Kawasaki M9 EMU for the MTA's Long Island Rail Road all laid up at the Hillside Support Facility. This is the 14-car set that has doing vigorous testing within the past month in various segments of the system. The M9 EMU will soon enter service. Please enjoy.
