A Retired 110

Recommended Posts

Excellent photos. It's always great to see shots of the R110B cars. Still look as nice as they did when they were new. I think their interior seating arrangement and colors are much nicer than what the MTA went with for the R143s and R160s, although the R110A had a cooler-looking interior, I think.

I agree, these interiors are much more inviting and warm than the 160's but thank vandalism for that.

Jon's Subway Photos - R110A Experimental Car its easy to get to, make sure your camera has a zoom tho. Go to 241 Street station and walk towards the bridge there, near the McDonalds.

 

I really wanna get photos of either the 207 st or Coney Island R110B one day, all I have is the set in the Brooklyn school.

its the only one us members of the general public can get to ;)

 

and the R110A photos, Jon's Train Photos - Viewing Image 860 this was taken at 250mm. I dont know if you have a dSLR or not.

 

the other 110A photo I took was also taken at 250mm but I cropped it so it appears more zoomed in

 

 

if you are able to actually you know get in the yard and up to the train, well no extra zoom is necisary

like I siad, if you have access to these yards, you don't need to bring a zoom, your standard 18-55 will do fine.

 

do you know if the R110B at 207 is still visible from the (1) stop?

Maybe, but I did walk 1/2 that entire yard with the T/O and did not see it. If I have to go back there I'll ask someone.

Anybody know what's the story behind that? They don't want vandals to vandalize the interior of the cars?
