Then, they turned him at Bay Parkway (Im sure they did, I was at 18 Av), and it ran Express back to the city.

Great stuff. Can't believe the (M) was late, since they have all those R160s. But, either way, great stuff. Look at that trackway at Ocean Pkwy, flawless! My favorites are the full circle LED R160s.

Great shots, especially the Ocean Parkway ones! I agree with R62A 1991, the tracks at Ocean Parkway do look flawless.

Nice photos! I really like the R40m's and especially that slant photo. Unique angle!

I never knew the D train had 8 cars, thought the whole system except the (C) and (G) trains had 10 cars lol.

 

Love the (:( shots! That's my favorite line, too bad there's no weekend service.

Any train with 75ft cars has only 8 cars. Any train with 60ft cars has 10.

Correct, however, excluding the following:

 

Franklin Av (S) Shuttle has 2 R68-75' cars

 

Broad Channel (S) Shuttle has 4 R44-75' Cars Off Season only

 

(C) Train has 8 R32/R38 - 60' Cars

 

(J)(L)(M)(Z) - 8 R143 / R160 / R42 - 60' Cars <--I Combined all 3, I know no 143s on the (J)(Z)

 

(G) Train - 4 R46 75' Cars

Great pics Zach!

I especially like the last R160 shot (car #8528), and the reflection of the tracks and the train headlights visible in the rear window of the R160. That one's a classic!

 

Also, what's with the new tracks at Ocean Pkwy, the trackbed and tracks look but a few days old!

Try riding the (M) from Metropolitan Avenue, through Brooklyn, go through the Bridge, then Lower Manhattan, and back to Brooklyn, via 4th Avenue, and via West End to Bay Parkway Brooklyn. It's a long ride, but it's worth it. 43 stops during rush hour! Great times! An hour an a half ride.

Its actually 37 stops, and its actually timed at approximately 1 Hour and 10 Minutes (a little more for some trips by about 2-5 mins) or so. Delays and backup could change that but not for much unless something really goes FUBAR.

 

And I've done the trip before and it was just over an hour.
