  1. Cubic tweeted on Friday that they just installed physical readers at South Ferry. Not active yet, but it's the actual screen + NFC component, so likely all the stations with mounts will start to get them leading up to (I presume) an activation of said stations in December.
  2. Except "completing" in this case has only been mounts. We've yet to see additional readers come online outside of the 42-Barclays corridor.
  3. Exactly my thought – sure transparency is nice but just telling the public "we put those giant mounts at these stations" probably would just confuse people into thinking OMNY was being accepted at those stations, or that the mounts are different from OMNY. It's the most logical to update it when more readers come online.
  4. I think they'll update it when more readers go online. So far they've yet to expand the actual coverage from the initial pilot; they've just been installing the bases
  5. Just saw this on the MTA Memes Facebook group – Houston Street now has OMNY mounts Edit: someone on Discord told me 170th on the also has mounts now as well. Don't have a pic but it would line up with stops like Fordham getting it.
  6. Here's some exterior videos of the Lo-Vs from Sunday's birthday event. Enjoy!
  7. Enjoy multiple fast express runs on the Lo-Vs, taken on the subway's 115th birthday.
  8. For the 115th birthday of the subway, the Lo-Vs were brought out to run on the Broadway Express from 96th Street to Times Square. Enjoy these photos from the trips! A fake-out before the main attraction arrived at 96th The Lo-Vs arrive! On board Times Square The crowd inside With a cameo from President of NYCT, Andy Byford! Heading back uptown after the last ride Bonus train
  9. After attending a college tour at Rutgers, I was able to spend the rest of the afternoon and rush hour at the New Brunswick station on the Northeast Corridor. I was able to see tons of 125 MPH Amtrak trains, as well as a lot of NJT action, including a good number of Arrow IIIs. Enjoy! Started off with a Conrail Shared Assets Operations local freight, which was quite unexpected! CSX #4408 pulls the short train southbound ALP-46A #4648 leads a train of Multilevels into the station 4612 shoving north First set of Arrows to make a stop at New Brunswick of the day, and it's definitely not the last ACS-64 #625 leading a southbound Regional The approaching Keystone would make a stop at New Brunswick, as one of the few Amtrak trains each day to stop Ex-Metroliner cab car #9634 leads the Keystone... And ACS-64 #615 brings up the rear A southbound Acela racing towards New Brunswick An express to Trenton formed of Multilevels
  10. Stopped by the Newark International Airport Station for a bit after landing from a flight from Buffalo for a bit of nighttime action on the NEC. Enjoy!
  11. Given how fast they installed them at 96th (quite literally put the mounts in overnight, all the turnstiles were done by the day after some mounts first appeared), it seems like it's not challenging installation. I assume the readers themselves are an even faster process to put on top of the mounts. They may also then just install readers/mounts in waves, and enable them in a similar manner (versus station by station)
  12. 86th still doesn't have them. I take the one stop from 96th to 86th every day on the way home so I can get a seat on the M86 since a lot of people always get off at Lex. I'll be sure to post when 86th does get the readers. Oh, and here's 96th: :
  13. 96th Street already has the mounts installed. I'll grab a pic on the way home from school in about two hours
  14. Just last week I got a brand new camera, so I wanted to test it out underground. Enjoy the photos!
  15. Enjoy these photos and videos of Metro-North at Botanical Garden station.
  16. On my school's Spirit Day trip, I was able to make my way down to a dock alongside the Hudson and catch some trains on both sides of the water. Enjoy this short video featuring CSX and Metro-North, as well as photos with my new camera of rail on both sides of the river.
  17. Back at the end of June, I went back to Mineola with my friend. Enjoy! v
  18. My first time fanning the Main Line back in June – 7 hours of action at Mineola, from about 12:30 PM to 7:30 PM, capturing almost every train in that time period. Enjoy!
  19. Enjoy this ride on the Brighton Express taken from the front of the BU Gate Cars as part of the 2019 Parade of Trains.
  20. Despite their age, the Arnines really showed off at the Parade of Trains, reaching ~45 MPH on the express run from Kings Highway to Brighton Beach. Enjoy!
  21. Enjoy this short jaunt on the R33 World's Fair from the Parade of Trains! More photos and videos to follow soon!
  22. Went up to Woodlawn with a couple of friends to catch the tail end of the evening rush. Enjoy!
  23. Enjoy this ride to Hicksville aboard peak express 1258 on the M9
