R110b with Orange (A)

Recommended Posts

It definitely isn't blue.

 

The R110Bs DO have an orange (A) ; it was intended to be used if the (A) train was sent down 6th Ave... or if it isn't orange, it's just an illusion.

Maybe someone spilled coffee on the rollsign.

And... I'd like to know how a person spilled coffee on the roll sign?

 

THIS pretty much covers it...

Took like 20 minutes trying to remember the site address.

 

From Eric B's website:

 

http://www.erictb.info/

 

http://www.erictb.info/carhistory.html

 

 

For a brief period in the fall of 1989, the Q was extended to 207th St. because of a flood on 8th Avenue that contaminated the tunnels with asbestos, cutting off the A. So this line ran a combination of Q and A equipment. The 44's were probably pulled quickly and kept on the A for the reason they were pulled from the Brighton in the first place. But the 38's continued to make their return to the Brighton until the service was restored.

Broadway-Brighton
 
9-89 Asbestos Flood on 8th Av. cuts A and C service. Q extended to 207th St via Central Pk West local, using some A line equipment, Non-weekdays, terminates at 2nd Av. (Local on 6th Av.) This would become the blueprint for future service cut proposals that were shot down because of the resulting loss of the legendary A express from Harlem (An orange "A" was placed on R-110B signs, and Brighton "A" destinations on R-44/46 signs to replace Q, but public still didn't buy it)

This thread should not belong here: person is just copying and pasting random photos from online. Pelham, for once can you go out and take your own photos for a change? I mean at this point it's getting old seeing you just copying and pasting. Do something more productive like taking your own pics and sharing those than someone else's stuff.

I know but, one I'm only 16, i live in long island, and my parents won't really let me go a city wide all day subway trip, when ever i want alone, 3 i have school homework and other stuff, that's more important. I do this because i get bored, when i'm supposed to doing work :P and just thought it would be nice to share something rare, and 4 i don't have free access to any place in the subway system i want including yards. Just say, also by the way, anyone have those schematics of the time machine done yet :rolleyes:  :P

and that's what the random thoughts page is for or he could start a new thread in the main forum. I have always said that the photo forum should be for those that posts their own photos. Edited by Grand Concourse

But employees have to change the rollsigns or straightened the rollsigns that way it can prevent wrinkling. I remember in 2010, the (7) came and it looked like ( : ) . Why? because I asked the conductor what happened to the rollsign. he said he accidentally spilled it with his drink. Worst part of all, it was a grape juice. So mistakes happens all the time.
