i havent seen that book since High School! (mid 90s)

 

ive been trying to find a copy cause there was one specific car on the Pelham that IMO, had the greatest "Subway Art" ever! it took up the entire side of the car, mural like. it was a tropical lagoon at sunset. In my old hood in the bronx, theres was a "legend" of when the artist was "painting" it and what happened while he was almost finished.

 

FreshPond, LOVE the r27/30 pics with the graff before they were GOH-ed to redbird-like. memories........

MOD trip, what some people did there (not pointing finger at you Phil) help to get those trips canned.

What happened? I heard about the March of Dimes being canceled but I never found out as to why.

There were many reasons ranging from people acting like animals on the trains (yelling, shouting, and cussing out the windows), trespassing, and other things that I won't go into.

Real pathetic. At least no one pulled the brakes, I'll say that much.

That has had no effect on the trips, people yelling out the windows at customers and trespassing have.

I just hope future trips won't be put at risk because of this. I enjoyed the Arnines last year and I hope they can serve for many years to come. The next generation of railfans will have a great time with the 80-year-old equipment...the look, the sound, even the smell.

They won't be around too long if people don't help take care of them. Especially those in museums like Seashore and Shore Line among others.

How did you get that last shot?

 

I was on an R17(i think) and they allowed us to open the window, so i took my camera out and took a shot.

 

R12/15/17 allows the windows to go down compared to the others.
