-Whats the carnumber to the R32 roll signs, and are they from the R27?

-Isnt the R44 going on SMS to replace the damn carbon steal strips?

Fantastic!

I'm going to go slant hunting on the (A) on Armistice Day

 

It hasn't been called that since 1954... Veterans Day now.

 

And did someone get lazy with that R38's sign?

 

Great shots.

Yeah I know, I still follow the old way of saying it. I really hope the weather is nice on Tuesday, I'm planning to head down to the Rockaways again.

R40 rollsign panel.

I never seen that in all my years of taking the J train ( which was 100% R42 ) til about a say a year and a half ago...perhaps its a replacement one maybe? it just bugs me out that if that really is an R42 that i missed that rollsign if its not a replacement:(

That's definitely an R42. The metal door well covering to the right is stainless steel, not painted. Maybe it was put in recently?

I was working the (A) this past saturday as I was told by the Dispatcher there are 2 sets of slants on the (A). I was dying to get one but had no luck as one got laid up at about 11:30pm and the second happened to be the train behind mine ! :mad:

Great shots, but it sucks seeing them because I'm stuck up here in Albany and can't ride them.

I will be back then and I should have a nice new rollsign too. And I can't forget to bring my camera home.

Yeah...Im hoping to get my roll sign to but I really want to pick it up (as well as it would be coming with some other stuff too, so I'd rather not pay to ship) but the real reason is that my building has no doorman and I work during the week and I do not want UPS to just leave that sitting in the mailbox area by the lobby (no key or buzzer access required for anyone to walk in there)

Yea I hope I can pick up the sign I want, I hear the R32 sing is a heavy motha. It would be nice to take an R40slant to 207 then drag my sign back to BK.
