ice shots of thelast revenuerun for the slants. And yes! Finally the R46 from the F/G routes are now down one of my favorite spurs, the Rockaway Park/Beach 116th Street, now I can grab one of those railfan window cars up front like I did on the F line, not bad at all.

nice catches. But I don't understand, aren't the trains used on the Rockaway shuttle come from Rockaway yard? It has only R44's.

 

And I'f I'm wrong, and the (S) uses the same yard as the (A), why haven't I seen a R40 slant (S)?
