  1. https://newyork.cbslocal.com/2019/07/23/non-profit-mta-homeless-report/
  2. Can it be? Can it truly be? 0020 is back in service, on the B47.
  3. Someone put the number upside down (6760). Yep. Only had one job to do...
  4. I couldn't find anything else on it, just a lone photo on Facebook.
  5. Been a while since there has been a comment like this one... Ah, protesting on the streets without a permit. The greatest crime in the history of humanity, the pinnacle of lawlessness. Guess it's a crime, punishable by death, if you forget your permit. Did you forget Charlottesville already? Now, I don't recall the legality of that protest,...but I'm pretty sure running over people with the intention of killing them is, uh, murder. You know, part of lawlessness? Five years ago, I would called this a stupid knee-jerk reaction, but these days? Judging from the early comments and the angry emojis in the FB SI Express group, this seems to be a common sentiment. And that is scary AF. "Sure, 20 people or so were killed, but I mean, I just wanted to go home and feed my family and relax". Obviously, I'm sympathetic with the protesters, but one doesn't have to agree with them to see how much of a stupid argument you're presenting. Because all you are doing is introducing a whole new order of lawlessness. You think people taking up a street is bad, and now you want people to run them over and kill them? Now THAT is chaos. You know, the opposite of order?
  6. A lot of those management jobs aren't very essential. It would be a problem if they were looking to cut down on actual essential jobs (T/O, B/O, etc). Can't really provide transportation without transporters.
  7. I had never railfanned the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail before, only taking a look at it whenever I had to go the mall. The LRVs are divided into 3-section trains (the original 2000 series) and into 5-section trains (2000 series trains renumbered to the 5000 series after receiving the extra section). They usually run in either 2000/5000 or 2000/2000 consists, but never 5000/5000 (at least to my knowledge; looks like that would be too long). I also stopped by Hoboken Terminal. It's really cool to have such an accessible rail terminal, and the waterfront in that area is nice.

  8. But is the running to Queensboro?
  9. "Parts Suspended" It would be really nice to know exactly which parts are suspensed. Might make the difference between, oh, I don't know, waiting with 80 people for the Q32 or taking the train to Queens Plaza.
  10. Over the last 3 months, David Alan of Railway Age has come up with a 6-part installment dealing with Gateway. It is a very interesting read, and it deals with things that railfans aren't usually concerned with, such as funding. It looks like Gateway indeed is a really big waste, and the inefficiency problems that plague the MTA rear their heads with NJT and Amtrak. Anyone connected with the series of passenger rail projects in the New York/New Jersey Metropolitan Area known collectively as Gateway will claim that their eventual completion is inevitable, much like former California Gov. Jerry Brown claimed that completion of the virtually defunct California High-Speed Rail Project was inevitable, or how anti-rail activists like Randal O’Toole claim that the impending demise of passenger trains and rail transit is inevitable. Yet, circumstances have changed in recent years, and new discoveries have led some advocates in the region to doubt the cost-effectiveness, and even the feasibility, of building Gateway as currently proposed. https://www.railwayage.com/passenger/part-1-of-6-an-arc-with-no-covenant/?RAchannel=home https://www.railwayage.com/passenger/part-2-of-6-politicians-wrangle-as-costs-climb/?RAchannel=home https://www.railwayage.com/passenger/commuterregional/part-3-of-6-is-this-tunnel-really-necessary/?RAchannel=home https://www.railwayage.com/passenger/part-4-of-6-hey-wanna-buy-a-bridge/?RAchannel=home https://www.railwayage.com/passenger/commuterregional/part-5-of-6-can-we-keep-penn-station-from-going-south/?RAchannel=home https://www.railwayage.com/passenger/part-6-of-6-we-have-a-plan-b-do-we-need-a-plan-c/?RAchannel=home
  11. A lot of things in this post: - The Queens Village Orion Gen-I are being retired quickly, so these may be my last shots of them. - Saw my first Proterra of the year. Still haven't caught 0020, which is the only one I have no photos of. - The new QV LFS and the Jamaica XD40. - Actually took my first photos of the Q16. Realized some time ago that it was the only (existing) Queens line I hadn't taken a photo of.

  12. There was no Astoria service this morning, from around 4 to now. Someone struck and killed at 30th Avenue.
  13. Took advantage of a trip to Albany to snap some shots. I've been to Albany only once before. Albany is Gillig land, with no LFS in sight (doesn't mean they are all retired, but they are almost done). Spotted some of the new 2019 units (4190 and 4192), along with the regular 6000 XD60s and the lone XD60 (5518) used on the BusPlus BRT. I missed out on CDTA's own 300 MCI series, but I did spot Yankee Trails.

  14. Contact David Pirmann. https://www.nycsubway.org/cgi-bin/feedback
  15. The LFSA order wrapped up a while ago, but the XD60s are still being delivered.
