Surprise in CI Yard

Recommended Posts

Riding out to Coney Island today I saw a (3) train sitting in the yard for some reason. I know that A division trains can make it out there, I was just wondering if anyone had insight as to why it'd be there.

 

No photo, sorry.

SMS and/or service. More common than you think.

Very, very common for IRT trains to get overhauled in CIY, its just any OH barn that got space, its not necessarily the one closest to IRT lines.

Usually cars like these are linked to other "transport cars" on each end that allow travel in the IND/BMT since the trip arms are on the opposite side from the IRT (transport cars have trips on both sides and can go anywhere).

I've been in the yard and seen 2 62's in the service area and a 7 train pass right in front of me down by the R160's Layup so this ain't new but interesting how they got there and nobody catching it.

When I first saw it I immediately took pictures of it. :(

It was horrible, so I took another shot the next day.

I've never seen a video of an IRT train traveling along a BMT or IND route. I would like to see how that R62 got to the Coney Island Yard.

I've seen R-62s @ CI Yard a lot when I want to John Dewey HS. I always thought that CI Yard had better maintenance and repair for all trains that IRT cars would just stop by from time to time. Even the former Redbirds arrive as well and I go "WTF!!!" :):)

I'm gonna take a guess at how the (3) gets to coney. The R62's go to 207 St then go via the (A)/(D) to Coney. The (4) goes thru concourse yard to do the same thing.

 

If the (3) R62 Train came from the 207th St Yard, then they go via the (D), then to the (N) Sea Beach Line. The picture of the (3) at the Coney Island Yard is from the (N) line I know because if it was from the Coney Island Yard from the (D), there wil be one rail there and that rail is the one next to the

(3) train Gong Gahou and I took.
