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

Recommended Posts

One time during a G.O. when (J) trains were terminating at Essex St, I rode it from Jamaica all the way to Essex. I don't know if that counts.

 

The closest I have was the (Q) from 34 St to Coney Island.

Over 30 years riding the subway and never made a whole entire trip. B)

 

You're not kidding, are you? I thought you might have ridden at least two lines in their entirety.

Interesting topic, I'm really trying to think hard about this and I honestly can't say if I have rode many lines end to end. The (E), (L), (6), and the (7) are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head. The (1) I rode, but it was a MoD trip and it ran express, so it probably doesn't count as a true 1 line. Then there was the (V), but only to QBP on the Vintage train. And the '(K)' when the R9's were running from 168th to WTC via express back in 2004 for the Centennial year.

The others have been split into parts or I took the express to skip the local stops and then got back on the local to continue to the end.

 

Oh and finally, I did ride the entire Path system when they had their 100th? year celebration and the system was totally free for the entire day.

Let's see, I've done the (1)(2)(3)(4)(5)(6)(7)(A)(C)(E)(B)(G)(J)(N) and (R) all the way through and even got the ride on the (A) both ways on video through the RFW... and I had hand problems for a few months after holding the camera that long.

I've ridden every line from end to end, from the 1960's 'til today. Of course I had a bus and subway pass in the beginning so it was pretty easy. Today, being a M/M, it's not as much fun but still interesting. Some lines were boring ,like the (C) or double (A) or (3) to Flatbush, while the(Q), (N) and (A) to the Rockaways were some of my favorites.

You gotta be in the right place at the right time. I thank R32 3838 for hinting out where to catch the train.

I don't know how anyone could sit on the (R) for the entire route, it's bad just riding it for a few stops.

 

The only routes I've ridden in full, (not railfanning purposes either) is:

 

(J) Jamaica Center - Broad St

(5) Bowling Green - Dyre Ave

(7)

(W)

The (R) is not as bad as everyone makes it seem. It does it's job serving as the local. Rarely has the (R) train ever had any major delays that hit other lines so often.

=/ its got good service but to ride it from one end to the other..let's just say you have to not be in much of a hurry at all...and have a great great GREAT deal of patience. I managed to do it but I can't tell you how many times i wanted to jump off and get an express train.

It's just as fast as any other local. Takes about 2 minutes to get from station to station just like any other local.

then maybe its the ride's length...because if i recall, the (A) local we took a while back had me wishing the train would up and switch to express track.
