Railfanning The R1 12/13/2009


Recommended Posts

Here's a small railfanning trip that me and Kris are planning.

 

1. We start out by meeting up by the 7th Avenue Station (D) at 11:00 AM

Then we ride the (D) Train to W 4th Street for the (F).

We take the (F) To 2nd Avenue and get one the vintage train from there. We ride the Vintage train to Queens Plaza and from their we ride the (G) to Jackson Heights. After that we take the (7) Train to Grand Central 42nd Street for the (6) Train. Then we ride the (6) To Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall. We take the (5) to Fulton Street from there. Then we ride the R32 (A)(C) Train from Fulton Street to W 168th Street.

Then last but not least we take the (1) to W 125th Street and end our trip their.

 

Here's the following photos stops.

7th Avenue- W 53rd Street

W 4th Street

2nd Avenue

Queens Plaza

Jackson Heights 74th Street

Queensboro Plaza

42nd Street Grand Central

Union Square

Brooklyn Bridge

Fulton Street

W 145th Street

W 168th Street

W 125th Street (1)

 

Now who wants to come on this trip?

This sounds good, but let's push the trip meeting time back to 10:45 AM since we will get more time to take pictures of the R9s at 2nd Avenue if we get there with 15 minutes to spare before the train leaves (at 11:31).

 

Also, let's not focus on where to stop for photos because there are actually quite a few opportunities (especially with the R32 (C) train) to take great pictures which you didn't catch (like 46th St. (7), Broadway-Lafayette (:P(D)(F)(V) and Canal St. (A)(C), to name a few). I think we should just decide on where to stop for photos as we go along the trip because as we're going to be going we can see which stations we are entering would be good for pics.

That should be fine. Just meet us at the front car at around 11:25 so meeting up (underground) won't be a hassle.

 

I spoke with Daniel and he said hes gonna have to cancel the trip due to his camera braking. he didnt post anything over here yet,i dunno why.

 

If he does cancel it,would you still wanna do this anyway,I can make my own route,but we'll still do the R1/9

 

and front car would be 10 car marker right?
