    The I.R.T. In 1939

    The I.R.T. In 1939 Courtesy of New York City Guide by The W.P.A. © 1939 Revised edition Page 10. Back in 1939, when there were three systems and fare was a nickel, The I.R.T. offered eleven routes: West Side: • Broadway-Seventh Avenue Express from New Lots Avenue to 242nd Street-Van Cortlandt Park • Broadway-Seventh Avenue Local from South Ferry to 137th Street • Seventh Avenue Express from Flatbush Avenue to East 180th Street•-Bronx Park • Seventh Avenue Local from South Ferry to 145th Street-Lenox Avenue East Side: • Bronx Park Express from Atlantic Avenue to East 180th Street-Bronx Park • Jerome Avenue Express from Atlantic Avenue to Woodlawn • White Plains Road Express from Atlantic Avenue to East 241st Street • Pelham Bay Park Local from City Hall le. Pelham Bay Park • Astoria Line from Times Square to Ditmars Boulevard Astoria • Flushing Line from Times Square to Main Street Flushing • 42nd Street Shuttle A couple of interesting notes • Lexington Avenue services were named for the Bronx street or park served • Atlantic Avenue was the Brooklyn terminal • Broadway never had express service north of 96th Street despite the name Broadway-Seventh Avenue Express. The Guide lists one elevated line: • Third Avenue from South Ferry to East 241st Street. A reference is made to the Second Avenue El and the World's Fair map depicts it, but there is no listing for it.

    My 1939 subway and elevated map with Manhattan map did arrive today as part of the New York City Guide A Comprehensive Guide To The Five Boroughs Of The Metropolis - Manhattan, The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens And Richmond. It is a beautiful map.

    Sun Tran Route 15

    Sun Tran has also tweaked the schedules so that Route 34 comes at 9:19 pm at the Davis-Monthan Air Force Base Main Gate and Route 17 comes at 9:30 pm at East 29th Street and South Craycroft Road. I still have seven minutes to connect after work.

    Sun Tran Route 15

    As of Sunday February 18th, Sun Tran's Route 15 is changing. On weekdays, alternating Route 15 buses will serve the original South Country Club Road at East 22nd Street terminal. Alternating Route 15 buses will continue on Kino Parkway and serve it to Tucson Marketplace. The new schedule has Route 15 buses to 22nd Street until 7:26 pm and from 22nd Street until 7:33 pm and to Tucson Marketplace until 11:30 pm and from Tucson Marketplace until 11:02 pm making Tucson Marketplace the new primary terminal. On weekdays, Route 15 buses run every fifteen minutes and the new main trunk this creates is Winsett to the Tohono Tadai Transit Center. Weekends no Route 15 service is provided to Tucson Marketplace. www.suntran.com

    My book and map have arrived here in Tucson and will be delivered to me today. 😊 The book is described as being in very good++ condition and the map as being in pristine condition. I am looking forward to reading the original book from 1939.

    R33/R36 World's Fair Cars

    In looking through Mr. Sansone's book, I noticed that there are R33 World's Fair cars as well as R36 World's Fair cars. I had thought that they were all R36s. Now I know better. How long did the original paint scheme last and when were the R33/R36 white?

    Thank you.
  14. The London Underground goes by zones which makes it even more expensive. There are nine zones. Zone 1 is the most expensive.

    Random Thoughts Thread - Suffolk County Transit

    From ST's website I see that Suffolk Transit is like Sun Tran in that the fare for Seniors, Persons With Disabilities and Medicare Card Holders is only 75¢. Quite a savings over the $2.25 fare.

    Things That Annoy You!

    Today I purchased a two pack of blue ink refills for my Cross pen. They are fine point and will replace the red ink I was using in my pen. I have got to get over my fear of blue ink.
