Most Absurd mistake signs

 

This will make you laugh and make you think how ridiculous sign posting workers are these days. Some signs are not updated, a rollsign looks mixed up, and destination signs that make no sense, and spelling's even a mistake here. Take a look.

The (M) dosen't stop at Union Sqaure 14th Street
No, the (M) doesn't you're right, the (M) sign was used to cover up the <Q> sign when it was discontinued to make room for (:( in Brooklyn and (N) in Manhattan.

I've spotted a sign, maybe more than one copy, reading "Queens ©" with a downstairs arrow to cross over to the opposite platform in at least one local station (not sure about the express stations) on the IND Fulton line. What's more the (C) is in a circle rather than a diamond, the (C) never ran to Queens, only the <CC> and <C> did plus the (CC) Rockaway Shuttle, and no (CC)/©/<CC>/<C> service has run to Queens since 1993 I think.

Mine aren't all absurd but you get the point. Let's see what I've collected over the past one and a half years on my camera phone...

I can't find but also had an R142A rollsign showing (4)(5)(N)(R) at 59th Street, (E)(F) at 51st Street, and (F)(V)(S) at Bleecker Street.

What's not unusual to me is the (W) diamond sign, that's not such a rare case. Sometimes you have the (6) LCD sign working but has no lights, it's very weird. There was an (F) train with (N) signage at the Aquarium, that's really strange.

Ahhhh, the famous ( (1)/(9) ) train. Funny way to name a route, using a fraction... :(

 

I've seen the (J)/(Z) fraction just like the (1)/(9) one too. I usually think those are strange.

whoops, never mind.....just noticed the spelling lol

 

what's wrong with the Limited Rush hour (E) to 179.....I could have sworn that they run some (E)'s out to 179 every now and then

 

A spelling mistake is rare but if there is one it's hard not to laugh at it. :(

There's one at the Main Street station, since they just updated the signage... it says (7) Local all others times.

I've seen a train with (A)(C) and (E) signs mixed inside and outside at WTC chambers street. This was last summer.

This was posted on 2004. Not mine, but I found this in flckr.com. What is this doing here?

now that is weird

 

It sure is, that's been there even when the (Q6) no longer sees service. People were asking me, theres a (Q) (Q6) and <Q>. Three (Q)'s!!!?? It was fixed a week after this mistake was discovered.

Some people mess with the signs, there are some knobs on the insides of some R32 cars' roll signs. Is that what you're talking about?
