I was at Jay St. and I saw very bright lights come in.... and it turned out it was this....

 

 

 

I gotta tell ya this is one LOUD train.

 

If the video for some reason lags here go to the youtube page and it should be fine.

There actually is a big difference between the track inspection car and the track geometry car.

Ahh I see. Well on the side of the TGC it says Track Inspection Car.

 

hey, i was there yesterday too, then i went to the transit museum to check out the collection. was at Jay street around 1:30 ish. it was still there.

hmmm was it on the Manhattan Bound or queens bound track on the A? When I was there it was on the Manhattan bound track. It stayed there for about 5 minutes and then left.

I saw the track geometry car at Jay Street yesterday, but it was on the Coney Island-bound (F) track.

 

hmmm must have turned around after heading toward manhattan. Maybe going back to Stillwell yard.
