2. R32 (H) at Queens Boro Plaza on 7/10/08
Hmmm.....strange. R32s shouldn't be seeing Queensboro Plaza (unless its a rerouted (R) ), unless you mean downstairs underground at Queens Plaza.

Here i guess you can post anything special or rare you saw that you didnt have time to take a picture of. so today (7/14/08) i saw a:

 

1. R40M on the (N) between Ditmars Blvd. and Astoria Blvd. yes, it was in service, and yes there were people on it.

 

2. R32 (H) at Queens Boro Plaza on 7/10/08

 

3. Not so rare, but 3 R32's on the (R)

 

 

1.) Cool, heard about the Mod (N).

 

2.) R32 (H)? at Queens Plaza OR QueensBoro Plaza? As far as I know, no R-32s are assigned to the (N)(W) which make a stop at Queensboro Plaza. Perhaps it was Queens Plaza on the (E) or (R)? Was it an R-32 Garbage / Work Train at Queensboro Plaza? Sorry for all the questions, but thats a rarity ( in our days ) over there now:cool:

 

3.) cool

I believe it was a rerouted (R).

No, Queens Plaza, a regular (R)

It wouldn't be a rerouted train since thats the (R) normal route.

 

Its a rerouted train if it goes to Queensboro Plaza.

Certain R62As on the (7)<7> have replacement seats for the originals. For what reason, I don't know. Maybe someone vandalized the original seats beyond repair.

I have too, on the (F). But it was on the cars with the SMS flooring ( The Black Floor )

 

Speaking of that, is there any word of more R46 cars getting those floors?

guys if you go on google or wiki you'll see that 8 cars of R62 or R62A are bench seating.

 

IIRC, they are 1586-1590
