I think this thread should be sticky.

 

I agree, the 32's and 40's threads got stickied. The 38's and 42's don't get no love? :confused:

Nice stuff there Curt!! Ok so let me get this straight... I've been thinking the R38 was an R32 all this time!!!:(

 

Thanks Dante....lol no sometimes they mixed the R32 and 38 cars together. To tell the difference from a R-32 and R38 is the lines....R-32 have lines top and bottom of the subway car and the R-38 have the lines @ the bottom of the subway car along with that sticker with the red circle around it!

Ok thanks! It's still kinda confusing at times. So I'm looking through some other pics and I see the 38 has that outline-thingy going on around the top where the route sign is. Now I got it! There's just too many trains!

it really grieves me that all my beloved cars are being phased out it just wont be the same. I still remember as a kid riding the(D) train up to 205th from Coney Island where i grew up when all R42's were used and the (D) ran express in bklyn over the Brighton line. in the (D)(M)<Q> days...i know some of u guys feel old now. I used to love riding in between the cars because i loved all the sound effects it madethe train would make that infamous "da-dun...da-dun" noise as the train would dance down the express tracks zipping by local station after station could barely read the tags on the walls. the same for the R38's id do the same on the (A) line but it had to be one to Far Rock i especially loved because running through the tunnels the sound would be greater as it echoed off the walls with the 3rd rail sparks lighting up the tunnel as if it were animated because of the pillars. Theres really nothing i enjoyed more.

Funny story behind that train, me and Trevor was talking at the front of the station, only to turn around and see the train is right there and just start snapping away at the train. Our reaction was like "ooohhhh", couldn't even finish the sentence!
