7 Train Elmhurst

Hello

Recommended Posts

This is 7 Train Elmhurst:

 

Been a railfan for several years and used to live near the 90th Street Station

of the Flushing Line. I Know the 7 line track by heart. Remember the days

when the R33WF and R36WF cars ran on the line. I now live on Long

Island but still come back to the old neighborhood when heading to NYC

or to Citi Field to catch a Mets game.

 

My thrill as a kid was when a neighbor who was a motorman for the

IND let me ride in the motorman's cab. If I recalled correctly it was an

R16 "EE" train on the Queens Line just past the 71st Continental Ave. station

 

I used take subway joyrides all the time. I own a nice collection of books

on the New York subway as well as other systems.

 

In traveling I've had the opportunity to travel on many systems in the US,

Canada and Europe. Funny thing, while they're quite nice, none compare

to the vast extensive one right here at home.

welcome to the forum, and thanks for making me feel worst about my local TAs: SEPTA and NJT as they have no real subway system, just 3 random routes:

 

SEPTA: MFL. BSL, 100 Norristown High Speed Line

 

NJT: RiverLine, Newark City Subway, Hudson Bergen Light Rail

 

while NYC has like 4843944739493479 different subway lines ;)
