Has anyone ridden a train from the 1st to last stop?

Recommended Posts

Did anyone rode a train from the first to last stop?

 

My first time doing that was on the (7) Train in 2003

 

And my 2nd time was on an R68 (:P Train during my July 1st 2009 Trip from Brighton Beach to W 145th Street. It was like an 50-70 minutes ride and it felt cool. Too bad I never did that on an R40 Slant.

 

Now lets here who rode an train from first to last stop besides a Shuttle.

Wow, that's a fun question to answer.

 

I rode the (J)(L)(M)*(N)(Q) and (W) lines in their entirety. I think I did the same for the (E) and (F) recently too, the (:P going to Yankee Stadium.

 

(M)* Met Av to Bay Pkwy.

The 1st ones I ever rode end to end was the (J)/(Z) cuz they're right by my house, but I also rode the (A) (all 3 branches), (:P (to Bedford Park), (E), (F), (M) (rush hour one), (N), (Q), (R), (V), (1), (5), <6>, and <7>

The only line in which I rode its entirety was the 7. In most cases, it's slow and boring without the express and I would much rather take the F at 42nd and transfer at Roosevelt. Otherwise if the QBL was undergoing a GO, the best option is to take the local in its entirety.

Every single one of them in the summer of 2007. The (3) was the easiest. The (Z) was the hardest. I never did get to the (9) before it went away though.

(1)(6)(7)<7>(A)(E)(F)(G)(J)(L)(M)(N)(Q)(R)(S)(S)(V)(W)

 

If you're talking about railfanning a train end to end in both directions, all in one go, I don't have the patience to do that. If I'm riding end to end in only one direction in one standing, then I've done that on the (1)(7)(E)(G)(S).

Riding the (E) from WTC to Jamaica Center is harmful to ones ass if sitting in a 160.

 

I would have to agree with that. If only they would install those flip seats on the A cars like those on the R142/As-R143s. At least those aren't that flat and one can actually rest their head on the corner.

When I was younger I used to spend days doing just that. The only lines I'm sure I haven't done are the (V)(W) and (9) since I haven't been back in a while. I can't imagine it's much fun these days without RFW's.

Actually, professor, it's "has anyone ever ridden." I don't correct internet grammar, but if you're going to do it to others, at least get it right yerself. :confused:

 

(M)(R)(Q)(V)(7) off the top of my head.
