I'm going back to school in Massachusetts for the year. I'll be back in November, December, and March. Then, of course, for the summer.

Nice pics, especially with the R32 (G) train... man I wish I could have been there to catch that.

Thanks. To bad it wasn't the actual (G) train b/c I'd some railfan videos of the Crosstown Line:D

Thanks and don't worry about you getting in my shots. Maybe that side of the station looks clean but they need to hurry and rebuild that station though

 

Great shots! This trip was very fun...Too bad for Nick though. :|

 

Thanks and yes the trip was fun
