  1. This also means another reroute for I-95...it no longer use the Scudders Falls Bridge...I-295 is extended to replace it. And since that bridge was replaced by a new structure last year, it became a toll bridge (collected going from NJ to PA). The whole I-95 route issue is silly...right from the beginning, it should have been over the NJTP the entire way, but for political reasons, it was routed through Pennsylvania. This has always caused confusion for some through travelers, not familiar with the routing.
  2. I am one of those that since one way toll collection began, took advantage of that, by taking the 'free' crossing one way, and taking a cheaper return route. For example, if traveling from Queens to points south, I would use the Williamsburg Bridge, and Holland Tunnel. Returning via Outerbridge crossing, and Verrazzano Bridge. Or, if going north, via GW Bridge, returning via Tappan Zee or Newburgh-Beacon, depending on destination...
  3. The Max and its training have been cleared for modification, and take-off.. Here's Southwest's announcement... https://www.southwest.com/737-max/ AA already has one flight scheduled for their use...
  4. Anyone ever seen the uniforms worn by "Bullet Train" engineer's in Japan? They are decked out like airline captains, and even wear white gloves(!)🙂 https://www.google.com/search?q=bullet+train+engineer+uniform&sxsrf=ALeKk03tj02ZuqXmI2VKwWIAuuGAy99l3Q:1600484563669&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=AFPAZi1olLx44M%2CblEetPP8amLoeM%2C_&vet=1&usg=AI4_-kRp8Zy-v8ug38svE7si9Wc8i0GXSw&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjm3orPnfTrAhXGtlkKHfgDA7UQ9QF6BAgKEDI#imgrc=AFPAZi1olLx44M
  5. Great link, thanks for posting it!🙂
  6. Are there any plans to bring former Erie line trains into New York? Wouldn't the ALP-45DP make that possible? Would be nice to see thru New York to Port Jervis train service....
  7. Too bad it never was expanded beyond 184th street....there could have been stations at 188th Street, Francis Lewis Blvd., and Springfield Blvd. And perhaps even further, to the city line with a few more stops...
  8. Why is that? They sure look hardy enough to me....certainly more rugged than those old wooden Q-types....
  9. I don't know....who paid the Port Authority when the bus to Howard Beach that served the long term parking was free?
  10. Anyone have a good guess of when the R32's will all be retired? Just curious as to how close they may get to the 'Q -type' 66 year longevity record.... Probably not too close, as they would have to last until 2030! 🙂
  11. What I think they should do, is simply extend the 'free zone' of the Airtrain to the Howard Beach station, so that it replicates the one fare ride that used to exist when it was a bus making the connection. Whether they should do it at Jamaica also, is another matter, with its own pro's and con's.....
  12. Toying around with these people is never a good idea...you never know how unstable they may be, or what their reaction might be...why risk getting slashed with a box-cutter? Best to just ignore them, or if they are insistent, just shake your head, no.....in my experience, they will just move on to the next person
  13. I bought a standee 'strap' several years ago...does the MTA still sell any hardware items? Oh, I just found this...http://web.mta.info/nyct/materiel/collectsales/
  14. Wonder what would have happened, had a panicked observer pulled the emergency brake? Isn't that pretty much what those brakes are there for? Wonder if he would have been able to hang on, in that case?
