I got it at 111th. I am on it at 207th. Likely the first railfan on it.

LOL...

0645 Euclid to Lefferts was the first revenue run. You were DEFINITELY not the first foamer on the train.

For those interested, 3010-19 is heading down signed for Far Rockaway. Should be around 175th by now.

Where is it now?

Knowing how overly cautious and restrictive supervision is, the debut of the first 10-car set of R179s will most likely stay away from The Rockaways on Sunday. If anything happens, better it not be over an open body of water far removed from the rest of the system/hard to reach.

The 10 car set doesn't show up on Subway time or countdown clocks..

 

 

Also it topped out at 48 MPH on the flats N/B... But it only hit that speed briefly

Can't believe it's been over two years since this set got delivered and started testing. It's about time it entered service!

It’s so clean and new for now! I love it.

Also great video and shots, I like how you edited it.

I didn't know about that train and I quickly posted that using subway wi-fi so I didn't have much time to do it. I am sorry for that post.

I really appreciate your videos and those of @Dj Hammers. In addition to getting rare catches, you both do an exceptional job of editing your videos and making them look crisp. While anyone like myself can go out and take train videos, you put in the extra effort, which most people, including myself, can't do.
