then how come in the paper the first station is queens plaza?

Don't know why, but if they're doing it exactly how they did last year, the first trip is a 10 AM out of 2nd Avenue.

I have too much work, so I won't be going this Sunday. Perhaps next Sunday?

 

Yeah same, plus my brother wants to see this thing, so he's gonna have to wait for the next or the second next Sunday to go.

 

I'm charging up the D200 as we speak. :)

Heh... you won't "avoid" them, you'll notice them for sure, but with a little skill you can keep them from bothering you. My advice: find or go with a friend, then just sit down in one of the middle cars and chill. At terminals, standing under a staircase with your friends and talking is a good way to do it, just stay away from the platform edges b/c the foamers will be running back and forth along the edge taking photo's of every train they see.

 

Oh...and avoid the RFW at all costs, and avoid having any loud discussions about the equipment or you may have some "unwanted conversation guests."

 

I won't be going this week but I'll visit one of these trips at some point...got 4 more chances to go after this one...

No. I like the old equipment but I don't take it to the extreme that some people do. I just can't stand them. They make me feel embarrassed when I tell people I'm into trains and they instantly get that image in their heads. Foamers are bad for all of us.

IAWTP 100%.

You know, some foamers get really over-excited to board their favourite train and then bump into people when they exit. Not good. We all have to be courteous.

You can be excited to board a train, you just have to be cool about it.

For example, yesterday I got on an R38 (C)...but instead of fighting and biting to get the window, I waited my turn.

 

You have to have grace and style.

Exactly. And if you DO go on these trains and you decide to tough it out and go to the window LET THE KIDS TO THE FRONT AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO GO TO THE FRONT even if the foamers try and stop you. For a kid that experience means a lot and you have a DUTY to let the kids enjoy the view from the front because somewhere all of you looked out the window when you were young and it's not fair to deny a kid that chance just because a bunch of foamers want to film a 3 hour nostalgia video they could still film since they're taller than the kid anyway.

I went to the event today. I got on the 1:45 run out of Queens Plaza. I saw Fred G on the train. At 2nd Avenue I saw my archnemesis from Subchat Brian Weinturd. Despite Weinberg's presence it was still a fun experience. Pics will be uploaded in 20 minutes.
