  1. Thanks. I guess this is where Grammarly comes in handy.
  2. Hello, I am currently looking to work at the MTA, primarily in NYCT, LIRR, and MNRR. To tell you a bit about myself, I was born and raised in NYC and have some experience working at the Capital Management offices in 2 Broadway as an intern at different times from 2016 to 2017. I wanted to return full-time but wasn't able to due to a hiring freeze at the time. Since April 2019, I moved to Newport News, VA to work at a shipyard until I was laid off from work in February 2021; therefore I plan to move back up north and bring my shipyard experiences to industries I applied in the past. The kind of jobs I am looking for at the MTA are the typical desk jobs where you look through documents, communicating with other departments, while also doing field work. In addition, I am also looking for position that involve design using CAD software like Microstation. In addition, if there are no jobs like the ones I described at the MTA, I am open to finding jobs at SEPTA, NJ Transit, or CDOT.
  3. I don't know about MNRR, but from what I remembered, the freeze applies mostly to non-essential positions, I think.
  4. So, after over a year, the hiring freeze at the MTA is still ongoing; not just for MNRR, but probably all MTA agencies. That is the sole reason why I couldn't return to work at NYCT.
  5. Based on what I read regarding the R42's, the question I am trying to find the answer to is: what are the current status of the R42's? Are they truly retired or just reserved for contingency? Also, what's the current status with Jamaica/Coney Island R46/R160 swap? I ridden both Queens Blvd and Broadway/Astoria the past few days and I still see R46's on the R and the N/W is 90% R160's.
  6. I've seen videos of an R179 set on the from months ago, but only on the weekend shuttle. How come they didn't go via 6th Avenue and Queens Blvd?
  7. When are the best times to catch the M3's on the LIRR? Is there like a specific schedule for when they run? Also, on the New Haven Line, when are the best times to catch the remaining M2 reserved fleet?
  8. Update: I can assume many of you are unable to see the photos because of that Photobucket third party hosting message. Thankfully, I downloaded the photos from there and uploaded them on Flickr. The photos should be viewable now.
  9. These photos were taken back in January 2008, during that 7 line G.O. when they were installing the current switches around 74th Street and removing the switches between 69th street and 61st Street. As a result, there were no 7 train service between 61st Street and Main Street Flushing. Weekday express service was also suspended because of this. Service to Main Street was replaced by shuttle buses. You would see buses that you don't normally see in Queens such as the New Flyer Ar tics and the now-retired New Flyer low-floor buses you mainly saw in Brooklyn.
  10. On August 8th, 2007, a an early morning storm produced lots of heavy rain and also produced an EF2 tornado in Brooklyn.
  11. Yupp. The R was rerouted to Astoria because of the flooding that occured at that time.
  12. Back then, the only digital camera I had was the camera of a Nokia 5300 phone.
