Line 2 Strip Map From 2002

Recommended Posts

I recently brought one of the Line 2 strip maps and I was wondering if there was any info as to when it stopped being used/was updated, what colour the lights were as I'd love to get it lot again and also if the lights would turn on and stay on, on but turn off when you get to the stop, or weather the light just changed position depending on the stop.

The date on the back is from 2002

Are you sure this strip map is from 2002.

Back in 2002, the Barclays Center was not yet built. That opened in 2012. And the (9) train was a service that was still in operation. (9) train service was discontinued in 2005.

The map is from 2002. Barclays Center and the transfers are stickers placed on top of the original map.

You're right.

If you look extremely closely, I can see where there transfer sticker is placed over the original transfers.

Nearly certain they were removed in late 2017 as an effort to introduce a single strip map that could be used on both the (2) & (5) lines. Equipment between those two lines were frequently exchanged and static strip-maps for each line often caused confusion for passengers, especially during rush-hours and service changes.

 

There was an amber light used for each stop. The lights remained a steady until the train was in close proximity of that stations specific light. It would then begin a blinking interval as the train enters the station. The light would then completely turn off once the doors are opened at the stop.

There’s like three different variations of (4) line strip maps. I wish some of them would be sold off online as well...

The Barclays was added after with a sticker placed on top of the original stop

Thanks for that, I went no NYC September 2017 pretty sure I saw a few of these versions while I was there as well as the mixed :15x15_px_02: and (5), as soon as I saw this for sale I had to get it, next payday im going to make a box for it to slide into and get it all lit back up again, when looking on youtube I cab only find vids of the 5 and 7 strip of the same type so thats for the info, its something i never took photos of when I was there or paid that much attention to other then the stops I was going to.

I tried the link but its not working 😞 

The hyperlink in the quoted post is omitting the "l" in "html" for some reason. Just manually copy the entire link or add the missing letter, and it will lead you there.
