What line is it running on? I may be able to catch it if i make the 8:49 (NJT):nec: train. I am going to the stadium to get tickets for thursday, would be a cool way to get there!

Yes, i realized that as soon as i hit submit, oh well better to ask then be lost. If i can make that early (NJT) train i'll be onboard for that. With my luck though i'll get the 9:38 and be just in time for the pre-game rush, and all i wanna do is get tickets for the 10th (they finally completely sold out the home opener late thursday)!

I visited with the Train of Many Colors and took some photos. I invite you to look at them here: Train of Many Colors Enjoy!

Wow, amazing photos Fred! Really wish I was able to head out there to ride the train.

Thanks, fellas! Every time I see them running I think "damn, I wish they did this more often". We're lucky here cuz most cities don't do anything like this.

SMEE is a braking system that the R10 though R42 fleets use. The R62/A and the R68/A are SMEE too......

As others have said SMEE is the braking system on the R10's through R42's and the R62/A's and R68/A's

 

The big thing about SMEE when it was first introduced with the R10's was that it self laps, so in short form it works a lot like a car brake, the more brake you give it the faster the train stops, the less you give the slower it stops.

 

Arnines and other earlier cars didn't work as "easily" - that AMUE system was an entirely different animal.
