Now that the trip is over, anyone care to state the route?

 

-Train boarded at the Transit Museum and departed at 11AM.

-Train headed east out of the museum along the IND Fulton Line to Hoyt-Schermerhorn's unused side platform, then ran over the express tracks from Hoyt to 80th St - Hudson St. (A).

-At 80th/Hudson, a photo stop was provided. The train relayed on the middle track at 80th/Hudson, and picked up passengers who took advantage of the photo stop at the Manhattan bound platform.

-From 80th/Hudson, the train ran express to Bedford Park Blvd (D) via IND Fulton, IND 8th Avenue, and IND Concourse.

-From Bedford Pk Blvd (D), the train entered Concourse Yard.

-From Concourse Yard, the train entered the IRT Jerome Line just north of Kingsbridge Road (4).

-The train ran south to Burnside Avenue (4). A second photo opp was provided. Anyone who wanted to get a photo of the train going by from any station between Burnside and 149th St/Grand Concourse could get off at Burnside, go ahead on any (4) train, photograph the Lo-V going by, and catch the next (4) train which would rendezvous with the Lo-V at 149th/GC

-From 149th/GC, the train ran express via Lexington Avenue local track 1 to just south of 42nd Street/Grand Central (4)(5)(6)

-From south of 42nd Street/Grand Central, the train changed direction and entered Shuttle lead Track 1, stopping at the Grand Central (S) Platform.

 

One hour was then provided for lunch.

 

-The train reboarded at the Shuttle Platform, Track 1.

-The train re-entered the Lexington Avenue line using the Shuttle lead, and continued running down Lexington Avenue to Brooklyn Bridge (4)(5)(6).

-The train turned back uptown using the loop at City Hall, passing through the abandoned station there.

-The train then ran express on Lexington Avenue Track 3 to 138th St/Grand Concourse (4)(5). At 138th/GC, the train diverged onto the White Plains Road Line.

-A third photo opportunity was presented. The train made all local stops between East 180th Street and Dyre Avenue (5), to allow photographers to exit the train at any station of their choice. The Lo-V's would run by twice - once on the return to East 180th, then once more back to Dyre - but would not stop. On the way back south from Dyre Avenue the second time, the train would make all local stops, and photographers were to reboard the train at that time.

-From East 180th, the train ran south to 149th/GC lower level (2)(5). A rest stop was provided for any who wished to use the facilities. They were told to meet back in a few minutes on the upper level to catch up with the train.

-During the break, the train continued south to 138th/GC (4)(5), relayed, and re-entered 149th/CG on the upper level, to await those returning from their break.

-From 149th, the final photo stop was presented. Passengers could take any (4) train to any stop between 149th and Burnside Ave. (4), watch the Lo-V go by, then catch the next (4) train following the Lo-V to meet back up with the train at Burnside.

-From Burnside, the train ran to Kingsbridge Road (4), wrong railed across 1 track to access the Concourse Yard lead and re-entered Concourse Yard.

-From Concourse Yard, the train re-entered the IND Concourse Line at Bedford Park Blvd (:)(D).

-From Bedford Pk Blvd., the train ran to 125th St. (A)(:)(C)(D)

-At 125th St., the train changed direction and ran via the IND 8th Avenue Line to 168th St. (A)(C)
