R32 Rollsign Question

Recommended Posts

Ive seen a variant of the usual r32 sign which is well documented online already, unlike the usual one which would list all the lines

 

eg:

 

(R) Queens Blvd

Broadway/4 Ave

 

this one has:

 

(R) Broadway

Local

 

Anyone know all the readings on what presumeably is an older version of the R32 sign since the font is Akzidenz.

There are some R32 rollsigns that were not updated to reflect 1989 changes, such as when the diamond <C> ceased being used and no (Q6) yet.

There are rollsigns of the F reading "Queens Express, Av of the Americas local" or something like that

Does anyone have that rollsign in their collection or has a way of finding out all the readings on it? The original R32 one

 

If I get lucky and catch the car that has those signs I'll record a video of the readings.

I can help out with some of them if you'd like. I'll send a PM and give you some readings of the 1885 R32/R38 signs.

Since Chris is an expertise with his R32s (;)) he'll probably be a bigger assistance. :cool:

they didn't have the (JFK) on there since it was only on the R46 rolls from Jamaica Yard, the original one piece signs only had a few routes.

 

It came on the 1987 iteration of the R32/38 roll that had basically every possible service combination they could think of and then some.
