Old School Astor

Recommended Posts

Astor is my 116th I guess. I didn't know the R62A (6) skipped Astor. And also, a sign was taken down, revealing old IRT lettering.

I've seen that guy with the greasy hair before. He was talking a lot of misinformation on the Yankee Lo-V trip and doing C/O impersonations.

The T/O's facial expression is priceless it's as if he's thinking, "If this guy don't shut up already..."

Lol. I got stories about ppl that would even impersonate the siemens propulsion system! Now that's funny. I can litteraly see people in droves move (I mean scatter!) from the area of the platform trying to get away from guys like that. Ohhh I wished I had a camera to get some footage on that and post that crap on youtube. I never railfanned as much as I did when I was growing up (now just a disgruntled muttering straphanger pissed at the asshattery with service which the T/O's and C/Rs are powerless to control etc)  I guess but that one was priceless. Damn.
