Very nice! Lol, I take it you had some connections on the inside that allowed you to enter 'restricted areas'?

 

That was at 39st in brooklyn in the 90's no security just waked right in. now everything is as tight as a drum.

Concourse Yard looks pretty awkward with all those R32s lying around.

 

Interstingly enough it looked a lot like that as recently as Summer 2008 because of all the R32 Phase IIs that were being stored up there until they could be brought down to 207 for Reef.

Yea, except you could not get close to the yard last summer. I tried to go down there to get photos and I was stopped by property protection. I had gotten in there years ago and the other yard on 1st av when they had some old work cars they were scrapping. The system used to be fun. The MTA should really change their saying: (MTA) The Death of Fun.

Oh I was saying Concourse Yd...I was on the bridge at Bedford Park Blvd last year with a couple people who took photos and no one said anything. I guess it's luck (or lack of luck) of the draw.

 

As for "the death of fun" it's not just MTA its USA. The nanny state is in full effect and few have really noticed. All in the name of "what's fair" and "protecting the children" and "feeling safe." People have no ba...er, I mean, intestinal fortitude, anymore.

In '08, the yard behind Costco was filled with R16s, R32s, R42, and Redbirds that were being abated before scraping.

These pics ruled, I know I was a child of the 90s, but that "mysteriousness" you speak of was totally there then, and not now. I was 10 years old in '96, and the system seemed like... well, like the Star Wars galaxy or some silly shite. (to use a relevant analogy?) Who knows! Either way, great pictures, my man.

Yup, I got some pics of them while my parents were shopping at the costco. It allowed me to take some shots from the Costco parking lot annex without getting me into any problems. [Most of the pics are on nycsubway.]
