NYC, round five - How to scrap a R44

Recommended Posts

Took a walk across the 207th St. Bridge... I now see how they do business with these cars:

Note the 2-car train on the right:

Going to 215th St. (my old camera started failing me; does not take nice night shots), I found a R142A:

At 215th St, I recognize the future scrap units as 5309 and 5311, which were part of a stored train at Concourse:

When I crossed over to rid of the rest of my remaining Metrocard money (I would return to Korea the next day), another R142A showed up... however I would only end up getting the one in the distance:

Reunited with a fellow railfan at 207th:

I waited at Dyckman St. with my friend for the R142A to pass:

After finding the R142A, another nice surprise awaits at 168th, before I conclude my 5th 2012 trip:

An elevator shot lol:

And two vidoes, one of the R142A and one with a Not-In-Service R62A train at 168th St.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This concludes NYC, round five. Stay tuned for some final NYC action, and soon Seoul Metro and Hong Kong stuff (and Hawaii maybe!)

I love R62As they got 1345 on the (1) right now hehe.

 

1345 is an R62... not an R62A. That video is over 2 years old, enough already.

 

Nice shots.
