Nice pics. I caught that R38 "X" Train before. It actually broke down right outside of 42nd Street - PABT.

 

Thanks mate, it could also be the punchers on the cam, seeing that Numbers are there too

Your pictures are great, especially the R40M on (A). The (A) uses R40 cars regularly so I don't see that as a surprise. Wow, there are more R42 cars popping on the (E) these days. 8 Avenue (A)(C)(E) is truly a mixed bag of train cars now, R40, R40M, R42, R32, R38 R44 and R160A cars. WOW!

Mark , I like all the snow shots the J train on the platform is cool what lens do you use? I was wondering because some of the shots are rounded/shadowed in the corners

Very nice clear and crisp pix, wonders if (X) will be the garbage train all the time...

And wonders what will happen if that (D) R-68 gets rerouted on to the (4) by accident while in full speed and brakes are expirencing difficulty...

 

I think that happened once, not with a R68 though...

But if we have Div B car on Div A deja vu... it is going to be BIG TROUBLE

LOL cold always in NY :D thanks!

 

@Metatops- Yeah I ment to say 40M, and yes the 8th Avenue line is getting sunshine now, seeing that all the old and new cars are there B)

 

@BronxBoys77- Thanks I use Samsung S73 (S730 Family)

I paid like 80$ at Radioshack. All you just gotta do is have your camara looks str8 with any cam, ive told people but lots dont care. and u can download Windows Live Photo Gallery Beta, as it includes a feature to straighten your pics: windowslive.com '_ Thanks btw :D

 

@backline- Thanks! =]~

 

@MTR Admiralty- ya but u can have it on the exp track[Elevated Local station only], but what would happen if an IRT passes it, seeing that the B div car is wide, would that be a problem?

 

 

More Comments are Welcome =]~ And dont forget my bus shots for comments!

It depends on the distance between the tracks. A Dv B car is 9.75 feet wide A Dv A car is 8.8 feet wide

I believe due to the Dual Contracts, the distance between the tracks is greater on post-Dual Contract IRT lines.

These lines COULD have the potential of running Div B cars because of the greater spacing, but there are other constraints such as signals and other things:

-IRT Woodlawn

-IRT Pelham

-IRT Dyre Avenue Line (north of 180th)

-IRT White Plains Line (north of 180th)

-IRT Flushing Line (from Queenboro Plaza to Flushing)

-IRT Eastern Parkway Line (Atlantic to New Lots)

-IRT Flatbush Line (Atlantic to Flatbush Terminal)

-IRT 7th Avenue Line (Times Square-42nd Street to Court Street)

-IRT Lexington Avenue Line (from Grand Central-42nd Street)

 

You CANNOT run Div B cars on the following lines

-Lexington Avenue Line (south of Grand Central)

-42nd Street Shuttle

-Flushing Line east of Queensboro Plaza

-7th Avenue Line (96th to just north of Times Square)

-Broadway Line (242nd Street to 96th Street)

-Bronx Line (180th Street to 96th Street via Lenox)

-Lenox Branch

-South Ferry Loops

-Joralemon Tunnel (Bowling Green to Borough Hall)

-Borough Hall to Atlantic

They are yards, but not home yards, they have a smaller status than say Coney Island or Concourse. And yes, they are used for lay ups.
