  1. There's a broken down work train causing problems on the Astoria line. Just in time for work. Lucky my train berthed at QBP, just for it to go out of service. 😑
  2. Spotted CX35 #500 in Midtown this Wednesday. IMG_7822 by GojiMet86, on Flickr
  3. https://www.amny.com/transit/mta-overtime-costs-1.35116875 Here is the report from Morrison & Foerster: https://new.mta.info/sites/default/files/2019-08/2019-08-15 Morrison %26 Foerster Report.pdf
  4. CDTA MCI D4000 317 is retired and is now part of North Fork Express/Coaster Charter as 474.

  6. Took my first look at the B91A, the result of low ridership. This one looks like it carries more people per bus, but it still isn't enough to save it.

  9. Thought it was about buses at a Black Hood car festival or something, then I had to reread it, because the Vegfest threw me off. Actually, the name of the event is Black VegFest. No reason to say black hood.

  11. Guess they'll be using the money that would have gone to the B91A for this instead.
  12. People are treating buses and subways like they're some TV program or some anime or some shit. Like its a fandom, where you can love or hate the characters, and critique the storyline, etc. Where you can have opinions on what is best, what sucks. These transit YouTube reviews started popping up in droves about 2-3 years ago. And it's not like these are accurate reviews, like how you see with car enthusiasts and mechanics, which for the most part are know more about the inner workings of vehicles. The roots have always been there. How many times throughout the years have I heard and read what people think: "Love the way the Voight sounds." "Those guys at LGA suck with their maintenance." You have young people whose only knowledge of buses and trains comes from a couple of websites, and that knowledge seems to be enough to make them experts. And that's a problem. Especially when it comes down to vehicles run by a public stage agency or a private company, which itself isn't even that sexy an idea. Now there is a trove of misinformation in this niche community that cannot afford to have misinformation, all because some guy treats buses like a film trailer that can be reviewed on YouTube.
  13. Is this the same guy that was doing that express run with his RTS?
  14. https://newyork.cbslocal.com/2019/07/23/non-profit-mta-homeless-report/
  15. Can it be? Can it truly be? 0020 is back in service, on the B47.
  16. Someone put the number upside down (6760). Yep. Only had one job to do...
  17. I couldn't find anything else on it, just a lone photo on Facebook.
  18. 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?
  19. 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.
  20. 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.

  21. But is the running to Queensboro?
  22. "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.
