Nice Matt! Boy, do I have alot of catching up to do when I get back up there.

 

Thank you, Zach. When you come back, it'll be more interesting.

 

Slammin pics! Now I know the platform configuaration of Avenue J!

 

Thanks for the compliment. Avenue J is a strange station. I don't agree with the temporary platform setup though, because it takes longer to take a Coney Island bound train than it is for a Manhattan bound one.

 

Excellent pics! And nice catch of the R32 B train.

 

Thanks a lot. It's only my second time seeing it. R32s are way faster on the (:P than the R68/A hippos.

 

Nice pics and catch!

 

Thanks a lot, Kris.

Here's one more photo.

I apoligize if this is too blurry, but to the left is the bumper block and a pile of tracks just south of Cortelyou Road. Hopefully someone else here can get a better shot of the bumper blocks.

 

And two from Avenue H

Wow! an R32 Its nice to have one of the oldest Smee's on the B. Did anyone railfan?

 

I did see a few railfans on the R32 (:P. I just found this last week. Currently there's only one such train. I don't like the rollsigns though because the route bottom sign is inaccurate with the West End and Washington Heights text.
