is it possible that they can change the Old (NYCT) Logo with the modern (MTA) ??

 

They actually look decent.. Now they should install a real rollsign up front as opposed to Staten Island's Destinations.:(

I have a question: If SIR is under federal railway regulations, why does it use the same cars as the city subway?

The R44s that the SIR uses have been ,odified to match FRA regulations. I think they're called MUE-2s now. An SI R44 can't run on the NYC Subway.

Well I "THINK" its cuz the SIRT hassimilar featre to NYCTA/MaBSTOA? Like $2 in fare and stuff

 

o btw its free south of St George (Although tompkinvillle wont be in future~ seeing people can work to the ferry a few min away, and avoid the paying of $2 at st geroge)
