  1. Thanks! I appreciate it! Now I don't have to call Luz again LOL!
  2. Hello all, sorry to ask this, but is any other New York Transit museum members available to get back to me about the lo-v run and the Coney Island run? I booked both of them and "misplaced" the guide list. I am not sure which one was June and which one is July. Thanks! PLEASE PM ME!
  3. I totally agree Dan, Not smart to do at all. "Live and let live" it's not like he was smoking in the car. Leave that job to the MTA police.
  4. Hey that tour you posted doesn't involve the lo-v's does it?

  5. HAHAHAHAHA! Good one! After reading a lot of replies, I have to say I agree with a few of you that people should have just ignored it and that people tend to overreact way too much! I was a kid once and I had a few engineers/Conductors on Metro North teach me how to operate M-1 - M-3's I would announce the stops, open/close doors and buzz twice to start. I was taught it all, and I loved it. Sure some people were not so enthusiastic about what was going on and they grumbled about it and that was that. I guess nothing can stay the same.... It's sad. Anyway I hope that nobody looses their job over a damn picture and one person's "questionable " words.
  6. hey I read in one of the posts you bought the acela. How do you like it? Did you take any pics of it? I got the r-27 set for Christmas last year from my Girlfriend.

  7. A bit overboard to say the least! I would hate to be that guys neighbor lol! I love the sensor activation.
  8. Hey man I don't know if you got my last message or not but I have been busy with work and all.. I am hoping to buy a home this summer then I will have room to start making a layout. Duh I just read my last message I'm suck a dope! LOL !! Anyway take care!

  9. I wished I had thought to come on here first it would have been nice too meet a few of you guys.. How many people from here actually went on the tour? I was the guy in the dark blue jeans and black striped long sleeved collared shirt.
  10. Did you like the tour? I did it as well which was fun but then we got off for the zoo and I missed the Low-v train 8-(
  11. Hey thanks I have been very busy have not started anything yet will let you know when I do! 8-)

  12. http://www.fadingad.com/blog/manhattan/nyc_greenwich_substation03.jpg This is what it looked like a while back
  13. D-Dragon that is exactly what I thought too! At lease it's new and clean!
  14. not sure never looked at the roof. It is right down the street from a bar I go to Johnnie's bet 12th and 13th streets and Greenwich Ave.
  15. not sure about what is on the inside but it is a old building very art deco era it is possible that they used coal at one time to generate power.
  16. I tried to get on this tour but it was full already. If anyone on here does go please take some pics! I have been walking by that building for years while it was under construction. I would like to see what it looks like inside.BEHIND THE SCENES: SUBSTATIONS OF THE INDEPENDENT SUBWAY SYSTEM $20, Museum members $15 The old rotary converters and electrical switchgear of yesteryear are long gone, but the unique shape and Art Deco elegance of the buildings housing them is alive and well at old number 6, one of 13 substations built in Manhattan in the 1930's to provide power to the Independent Subway System. Colossal and stylized, this early powerhouse sent energy through a labyrinth-like electrical network of cables, circuit breakers and third rails. Tour the newly renovated landmark site with two NYC Transit experts -- General Superintendent Robert W. Lobenstein and Principal Architect, Mashiyat Ashraf.
  17. fred real nice shots! I go down on that tour a couple times a year. What settings did you have set when you took those??
  18. Dude some of the best shots I have seen on here where are these taken and did you use tripod/gorillapod? B)
  19. Does PETA want to be taken seriously or what??
  20. What online site sells those NYCTA decals? I would like to get them myself.
  21. After looking at train worlds prices I'd be crazy to go elsewhere. Well when I do get the proper power I will be getting back in touch with you with more questions on certain functions should they arise. Thanks again.
  22. AA 8th Avenue , Thanks! I know I am going to have to get a bigger pow supply. I am contemplating on the legacy remote. Do you know anyone that has one? approx 300.00 is a lot for a remote.
  23. Nice to have ya Bill Happy New Year!
  24. ooh without a doubt it is. But too much $$ for her to spend.
