November 25th - Happy to go hunting for some Turkey and R42's...

If I were you, I would hunt for R42s on Jamaica NOW! You will not be guaranteed R42s later on this month because the number will greatly dwindle. Just throwing this out there.

Sounds like a Daniel Awwang Smack Down :(

Just a tip. You should consider doing the (J) line instead of the (:P(E)(A)(D)(4)(S) because a few months from now the R42s in the Eastern Division will start to be retired. You most likely will be able to include stuff like the (E)(S)(4)afterward if you catch an R42 on the (J), though.

This sounds like another episode of Daniel's trip....

 

This is what I would do

 

Start off at 2nd Ave station, Hop on an R42 (V) from there

 

Ride it to Queens Plaza in hopes to find an R42 (R)

 

If successful, take that (R) train and take it down to Dekalb Ave

 

If I am within the rush hour time period, jump on an (M) train to Broad Street

 

Positioning is what matters when it comes to finding R42s on the (J) & (Z) cause the trains become quite crowded rather quickly in manhattan. Wait for an R42 (J) or (Z) train from there, ride either one of them to Myrtle Ave

 

Then wait for another set on any of the two lines and finish the trip at Broadway Junction.

 

Thus making this strictly an R42 hunt, with only one offside catch, the R160 on the (M)

 

And perhaps after the trip, do a little bit of free styling, go look out for other trains & whatnot.

 

Just my 2 cents.

If you want an R32/R42 (R), here's a tip. One leaves Forest Hills at 2:55 PM, and the same train leaves Bay Ridge at 4:33 PM. You can plan accordingly if you want an R42 (R).

 

BTW, I'm in for this trip but I'll have to bail out during lunch.

Date: November-25th-2009

 

Modified Trip Plan:

{Start of Trip}

We will meet at Broadway-Lafeyette Queens-Bound approximately 11:00AM.

We will wait for a R-42 (V) Train.

...

-Take (V) Train to 71st Ave. - Forest Hills.

We will have lunch at my local Boston Market, it is pretty clean at the Second Floor and Bathroom is overall decent too.

-Take (F) to 179th St. and back to 71st Ave. - Forest Hills.

-Take any local to Queens Blvd. and wait for R-42 (R).

-Take R-42 (R) to DeKalb Ave.

-Take (M) to Essex St. and wait for R-42 (J).

-Take R-42 (J) to Broadway Junction.

-Take (A) to West 4th.

{Trip Ends}

 

How do you like the new plan?

Any on-topic Questions, Comments and Suggestions?

 

 

 

BTW: Mark1447, (K)(R) and Urbanfortitude got pwned by this...

 

Actually Urbanfortitude didn't get pwned by this. Nice try tho.

 

 

Anyway I been looking into your trip date just to see if I can make it. If I'm actually in town this time I think I will do this one.
