GOOD PICS!

 

What's with the windows on the slant?

I think the slant is ready to run a few more on the (A) before it finds it way to the death barge.

Those two slants at Rockaway look to be school cars only.

 

And I believe they had the fareboxes @ Howard Beach for the GO Shuttle Buses to register the fare as a new one or as a transfer from the Shuttle Buses. Probably ran out of the GO slips. Or just cutting back on handpower.

As far as I have used the shuttle bus service replacing a train, the b/o never asks for that G.O slip...

For example like Broad Channel, and passengers would not get on free shuttle bus to Howard Beach and paid at farebox there.

 

Why can't local (A) shuttle bus stop at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge or Broad Channel Library.

That would make more easier.
