R17's on the Number 2....

Recommended Posts

Good morning, all.

 

I thought you might like to see some views of R17's operating on the Number 2 Train.

 

Bronx Park E. Station 3/2/85

The 6526 presents an interesting appearance with clean white paint only on its sides. The Pelham Parkway Station was a favorite location of mine due to the very visible grade of the elevated structure.

 

Enjoy,

 

Earle

I woke up this morning expecting another post by Mr. Baldwin and his dirty IRT's. Fine pictures as usual.

 

In the second photo and on others did the MTA just do a sloppy paint job to temporarily cover up recent grafitti on the car?

Yep its just basically paint on top of paint on top of paint. From the looks of it, it looks like they don't bother painting the front and back ends.

 

Nice pics Earle!

Not only are they covered in grafitti but they're covered with dirt aslo. Did the NYCTA have car washes back then?

Thanks for sharing more wonderful pictures with us Earle. The third picture from the top is my favorite. It's a great shot coming around the bend.
