A fun late afternoon on the Sea Beach

Recommended Posts

... I had back on June 15th, 2007 at around 7pm.

Still-in-use incandescent lighting at the stations, the open cut construction, lots of slants and a couple of brand-new R160's in service on the (N) made this trip very interesting. Want to join me for a ride on the Sea Beach? :D

 

A slanted railfan view, after leaving Stillwell Ave, heading north:

At Avenue U:

that's the kind of station lighting I like to see:

An (R) train heading for CI yard?

Yet another set of R160's:

Diamond (N) service?

looove the slants:

Let's say Avenue U could need some re-painting... (the first picture is a bit brighter on the bottom not because I obstructed the lens with my finger; but because of the sunlight falling into the open cut)

The lighting is even more interesting at Kings Hwy:

New rails waiting for construction at Bay Pkwy:

My first ride on a brand-new R160 included an interesting video informing riders about the advantages of the new R160. I don't know how long MTA used that video but I've never seen it around on any websites:

(it featured a lot more different screens, if you're interested I can upload them all)

Well, technically not the Sea Beach anymore, but I simply loved this Downtown Manhattan sundown view as seen from Manhattan Bridge:

Great pics my favorite is the one with the R160 and the R46 (R) train. I wish the slants were still the king of the (N) line now its just mostly R160s sadly.

Great pics! Even though the stations on the Sea Beach line aren't so great, still one of my favorite lines.

Those are some really nice shots! I really like the last one. Anyone ever been to the Av U station after hours like 2 am? Scary!

Great shots of the Sea Beach keysersoze. The shot of downtown Manhattan is great but its missing one important thing. Still great though.
