Anyway nice collection.

let's see now,

 

the current map a few maps from 2005-2007 (i used to have the 100 Years of Subway map with the brief history of the subway and the old fashioned maps on the back, but i lost that) , the 2001 map, and the 1993 map which i really have no clue how it was there but i was going through the closet in my room one day and i just found it lying there. i also found a 1980s map once but someone threw that on the middle of the street on a rainy day so it was all nasty and soggy and I didn't take it home, but i took a look at it and everything was so different than today (except for the IRT lines, every IRT line was the exact same thing as it is today lol). i also have a few train and bus timetables and that's pretty much it lol.

 

brighton local where did you get those signs with all the different trains on them and their destinations?

Nice collections! :P

 

I started collecting in the early '70's and have a nice collection of Phoenix and L.A. stuff from back then. I also have a number of rollsigns from L.A. buses of that era plus a few things from L.A.'s earlier streetcar and interurban era. In the last few years, I've been adding New York memorabilia to my collection, thanks to some kind people at Strappies and Transitstuff. ;)

Haha, I knew you'd like it. I bought the front R40 Slant/R40M/R42 rollsign off ebay. The older (:( signs and the (F)(N)&(R) Signs are from ebay as well, from R46'S. The shorter black and white "R68" Text type rollsigns that display the (:D(D)(Q)(Qx)(W) routes, I actually went to a sign shop and had made up for my personal use.

Well I think it was worth the $300, in several years there could be a nice resale value. I like the R143 book but i wish I had one from the R160's but it was a great gift.
