  1. The R-44 was at the other end of the track today at the museum when I went there. It's where the R-30 use to be. They moved up the R-30 and coupled the R-44 to it.
  2. R-44 returns? Sweet!! Great pics too. That's a perfect pic. Both former trains that use to run on the A line : R1 - car 100 and R-44 5240. One happy family reunited at least together again like the old days
  3. Nah I went to John Adams. I use bklyntekgeek because it's a combination of my boro, and my love of computers lol.

  4. I would like to have one of them too. Specifically car number 5460. Lot's of memories with that car. Birthdays and weddings.
  5. Great photos. Wish I went this past sunday I love Green Lines Bus number 10001. YES! It's alive !!! I miss that one lol. Use to take that bus on the Q7 and Q8 from JHS to Adams. The scroll signs were the best. I remembered a bus operator friend of mine from Green Lines at the time let me and this kid help switch the signs on the passenger side from the Q8 to Q41 back in the days when we got to Euclid.
  6. Yeah. It'll be a different car class similar to that of the SI's R-44's I think.
  7. One cool thing I would love to see is an R-46 with the R-44's parts like the Brake Package, Propulsion and the glass dividers hehe. That'll be a neat thing to see.
  8. Definitely agree with that statement. I have a wallpaper of the R-44 in a picture frame to remember them as well. A family photo of R-44's sitting at Rocakway Park Yard
  9. Couldn't agree more. And love that post. I lived on the my entire life. The R-44's pretty much were THE along with the R38's. Missed them sadly and ain't the same without them.
  10. Yeah. Took me awhile to get use to the R-46's lol. I keep forgetting there's no partition by the door lmao. But if they can add those partitions to the R-46's it'll be great! They done that before when the R-44's came back without them from MK. I remembered the MK R-44's were rebuilt without the partitions. Then down the line they were installed.
  11. Had my last ride on the R-44 this past week. Took pictures and videos too. Glad I was able to say my goodbye Still..will miss them. They been there since I moved into Bklyn as a kid. I heard one passing by my house on Friday afternoon. Will miss hearing their brake release and their glass partitions. Loved taking a nap on them coming home from work every day lol. Wonder if it's possible to transplant some of the R44 parts over to the R46 like the glass partitions and then some.
  12. Thanks dude. You rock :D

  13. Woops Just found the sigs in the inbox lol. Thanks R44
  14. Thank you sir. Glad to learn something new B) I wanted these R1's since last year but didn't have the money. I bought the R-40 slants instead. Luckily one year later on the anniversary that I bought the slants, I was able to get a good deal on the R1's from ebay. Price was $636 plus shipping and handling. Well worth the investment as she's not that easy to find these days.
  15. I was wondering if the Lionel Maintenance kit would work with the MTH trains? Just curious. Just got my R-1 yesterday and I was told that the battery need to be changed and also the wheels need to be oiled and stuff. Thanks
  16. I love that car Took the R-44 C for the past few days. It was a treat. Missed these cars
  17. Glad to see some of the younger generations of today appreciate the older stuff :cool:
  18. Love the pics of the R-44's side by side with another R-44 and also the R-46
  19. True statement. I took the wife there a few times to the Transit Museum in the past and we still go there even till now. Of all the museums we been to, the Transit Museum is her fave and mine too. Simply because it's not so crowded with tourists and big crowds like the others. Also it's convenient, cheaper and you get to sit down at least and not have to worry about being yelled at for sitting on something "historical" because you're tired lol. Instead you're allowed to sit down in the actual exhibit on the seats and see the train from the passenger's point of view back when they were in service. Plus, it's a lot more quieter
  20. R-44 5460 and 5479. 5460 - Set that I always got on the A. 5479 - Same as above plus it's the highest number on the R-44's on the NYCT
  21. Giving directions and navigating the system.
  22. Awesome catch! The M sign was a rare find. Caught one of the R-44 sets I was on today with the wife too.
  23. Just rode the R-44 C train today on the way to the city And luck was on my side lol. It was the same R-44 set that I took on the A line one last time before they were replaced by the R-46's. The car was 5479. Saw the same set across the platform at Euclid on the way back home from the city today too The same set I took going to the city just returned back to Euclid about an hour later hehe.
