Holy moly you are actually going somewhere. But I could have sworn you've done a similar trip like this once before, and choose new stations other than Atlantic Ave & Broadway Lafayette to take shots, you've done that quite a few times already.

Also, during railfan trips the photo locations actually utilized are usually different than the ones you plan to stop at. So focus on the lines, do a little research on the stations you're going to pass through, and decide where you should stop for photos during the actual trip. You should have a general idea where you are going to stop beforehand, though.

Out of curiousity, have you ever done the (F) in Brooklyn?

 

Thats a good idea the IND Culver or even the IND Far Rockaway Line even if its up to Rockaway Blvd/Lefferts.. I'd rather skip the (D) and do one of those since you have done a lot of (;)(D)..

But why not? What could be better than a 8-minute stretch from Howard Beach to Broad Channel, with a 32 (A) hauling at 50 MPH???

You have to try it at least once (on an R32) before being able to say you're not into it.

The (D) has a very nice photo op at 9th Ave. though, so let him do it. I don't think he's ever done the West End line before anyway...

Daniel, trust me... You'll definently like the Rockaways, you get to see planes, boats, trains, perhaps even busses! I once haven't liked it at all, but after riding it I have the urge to go down there again and again. And hey, a possible R-32 gliding down the Rockaway Track, a :tup: :)!

 

Either way, if you do the Rockaway or not, I'll definently hop on. I kinda need to ride the Subways, :P.

 

regardless of whether he wants to go to the rockaways, you could always just side trip to the rockaways, and if i go, i'm probably going to do that.

Why are you afraid of this area ESPECIALLY if it is a group railfan trip? Nothing is going to happen to you. NOTHING.

 

I don't know why you are being bothered with him b/c he's full of it. I've railfanned on the (3) line before and nothing has happened to me. I took pics on the corner of Ashford Street and New Lots Avenue where police patrol that area daily and yet nothing happened!
