A Sad Day In Transit History - The End Of An Era

Recommended Posts

Today, April 7th, 2008 is a day in transit history that the R160As hit the M Line, all 8 cars, for the first time. The R42s are still out there running along with the 160s thank god. Everytime I step on a R42 Mikey I will be at the RFW trying to remember as much as I can and experience everything so I have long lasting memories on top of the ones I already have. I don't know how long it will be until my Mikey is full R160, but I hope it takes a long time.

 

Anyway, Here are my promised photos from today. I hope you all enjoy the photos. It was one sad day out there for me today.

I loved the photos. As much as I like the R160A/B, the R42s are living rail legends. The were featured in the French Connection in one of the greatest movie scenes of all time.

Nice shots dude. I have to see what these bad boys look like on the West End with the (D). To tell you the truth, Im not feeling it; the (M) with R-160As. Perhaps a little getting used too.

Great pics my favorite is the R42 leaving the metropolitan ave.

 

its great to see that R42s are still on the (Z). It looks kinda weird to see any train other than an R42 on the (M) though....

Same here, tomorrow ima try and get shots of the (M) in brooklyn :D. Hopefully I can get one running alongside with the R160B, dont matter which one it is !

 

Awesome shots mustang. It is kinda sad to see the R160As on the (M) tho. Going to metropolitan wont be the same :P
