  1. Wow, you should really develop statistics for the DOT. You have a vast amount of knowledge and keep track of everything! At least in this accident, the whole front of the bus does not need to be replaced.
  2. Me being in college has cut down the amount of time I have to post around here, but I still lurk around! Here are some photos I taken recently! And to finish off this post...
  3. It's been too long since I have photographed the subways. Been doing the same crap for 6 years now. Here is something that was worth photographing. Well, if you wondering what the rail condition at West 4th St. was about. The story I am getting the R46 I photographed cracked the rail leaving the station. They sent a rescue train on the side on the express track, but it seems that did not work out too well.

  6. NYA has been doing a lot of overnight runs as of late.
  7. Maybe they need to keep a few singles for Refuse Service...since all those redbirds are gone.
  8. Quite the interesting updates on MNR happenings. So was chatting with a good friend of mine and MNR is looking to overhaul the GP35-Rs and keep them running for another 15 years or so. Overhaul work mainly includes installing PTC as well as Electrical & Engine work. Looks like the #1 choice for this work is Brookviille. They should give them a repaint during that process. Also, roughly 120 M2s in service, 98 M4/M6s in service & 230 M8s are in service, or coming into service very shortly.
  9. So I have a new system to get my backlogged photo up and online for your eyes to see. This is installment 1 of 4.

  11. The 2nd Engine is a Chase Engine in case of any trouble that may occur. Not really needed with the chase engine being close behind it.

  13. Yup...going away quick Yeah, there is a separate area where the service fleet is kept.
  14. Some clean out was done at Eastchester, a good chunk of the Orion V CNGs, RTSs & C40LFs are gone now.... Some interesting stuff still is at the depot....

  15. Actually no....an MTA Police Officer working in Long Island or for Metro-North can't be assigned on either place. They have to know the area. Can't send a cop from Long Island to go patrol Stamford. ____________ In the future the only feasible solution is to make train have the ability to flip their contact shoes so that they can use over-running & under-running 3rd rail as seen with the M8s... But that technology is not really being used at the moment.
