Recommended Posts

More R40s waiting at the 207th shop for their final destination. I would say enjoy the photos but what the hell.

The subway car (R40) has outlived it's usefulness. I'm glad that the R40 cars got to spend their final runs on the (:(. When they're gone, we'll remember them, it's time to move on and enjoy the new cars. Great photos by the way.

Through what window? :(:D

 

Great shots both of you! Regardless of whether people like or do not like them it's a sad day for them. There are at most 94 slants left. A more realistic number is 30-50.

They say beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, but anyone who will miss those ugly, rusted, leaking, banging, screeching, ducklings, needs their eyes checked.....

Most subway cars bang and screech, even the NTT.

They're slanted ends, look nice, and tall RFW makes them a great train for railfans.

The NTT ain't as bad as the rest, except taking the curve into Simpson St., or 180st, The R142As are good for bucking, but it's a different bucking than the rust buckets......

 

Now what about the ugly, rusting, and leaking..... I know your sad about the demise of the R40Slant. If you want to be comforted for your sadness, Phil D will be glad to assist. You two can cry on each others shoulders when the last one is stripped naked, thrown onto the barge o' death, then dumped like medical waste into the ocean......:D:D:p:p.......
