Crossing over to the express track - This is the area that was worked on and forced the (7) line to close early last year

We caught up to the local in front of us at 46th Street, as well as a S/B local

Another local passes by shortly, at 52nd Street

The switch work south of 74th street that was placed earlier this year. Long switch isn't it? If you look closely you can also see the GT35 timer.

I find the lack of light slightly artistic...

CRAP! MY FLASH IS ON! That T/O must've been pissed...

 

Now for two video questions. How do I record them so that they have sound? They save in .avi format. Also, how can I set the max time? Right now it's set to 60 seconds. Thanks in advance to anyone who has the answers.

Nice pics!! Most likely your camara doesn't have sound. You would have to buy a camara with sound. Not all camaras with video mode have sound.

LOL Thanks!

Nice.

 

What camera do you have?

 

Thanks! It's a 5 MP Fujifilm FinePix A500. It's kinda old, my sister got it at the beginning of last year.

East New York,

 

You beat me to the "nice shoes", I was going to use that. :(

 

I forget what commercial that was from, but at least I remember the tag line.

Might be Nike for Bo Jackson.

 

Anyway, very nice pics. When the kids (mine, that is) go back to school in September, I hope to do some serious RFing.

Nice catch with the blue seated R62s... and nice pics too. It'd be great to catch the even rarer R62s that apparently have benches instead of buckets... but I have never witnessed them.

There's only... what, four or five of them right?

That's a great story about the (7)<7> ride, especially the railfan window photos! You did ride the entire (7) line and that must have been fun!

Thanks! The other blue-seated set is the LED set, but there's probably more.

Last time I checked I think it was 1587-90.

Thanks! The (7) is a great line and it's great I live right by it. Soon I'm doing a "Stations of the (7) line" photo thread because many of the stations got new paint jobs, Shea Stadium is getting renovated, etc.

Shea Stadium is getting renovated.

 

So that's why they painted it red. I'm not noticing anything else though.

 

Are they gonna rename it "Willets Pt Blvd/Citi Field" now?

Not yet, when the stadium is finished. I really like what they did the red though. It looks kind of out-of-place but it fits and gives the station a better look.
