The Little Details

Recommended Posts

You may know me as one to notice all of the littlest details of the New York Subway, well here's one thing, I noticed that New York City is the only city that puts a little white crescent on its train wheels, I wonder what its significance is.

They paint them like that so it's easier to tell how fast the wheels are turning.

 

The buses have a similar thing, there is an arrow shaped thing on the lugnuts on the wheels

Those are different...they used those to make sure the lug nuts holding the wheels on are tightened correctly
