Mixed train at 18th Av Station

Recommended Posts

Here's an interesting photo of a mixed train on the Sea Beach Line at 18th Av station. You don't see something like this in revenue service anymore.

 

Date: July 4th, 1969

Collection of: Joseph Testagrose

wow, interesting photo. Now I see why the quote, " a picture is worth a thousand words" is utilized.

 

From what I can view from here is R40M's, R32's, R40-Slants, R42's.

Thats a very strange train. I have never seen anything that mixed before. I know the IRT used to mix alot of different cars on a train but I don't think the B divsion did it as much.

The B division were infamous for that.

 

But thing is, you usually don't see R40 slants mixed with another car type in a consist like you see in the picture above.

Imagine if they did that today...

I actually wouldn't be surprised if something like that happens anytime soon with the mess the MTA been doing and creating.

Ive seen it before. Back in the summer of 2005, when NYC was getting hit with a Hurricane; before hand, they took the B train layups from Stillwell yard, and laid them up at Neck Road ( like they do on weekends now), and there was a 10 car R40M set with 2 R40 Slants in the middle of the consist. However, I personally didn't see it in Revenue service, but I heard the same set I saw went into service the very next day.

they already have 2 mixed sets: the R32/R38 one on the A/C and the R40M/R42 on the B/W

Wow! Nice picture. Up here I've never seen a mixed subway set. I have, though, on the Trolley line see them latch up Type 7s to Type 6s. Very common.

 

Back in the 70s-80s they used to put Budd RDC's and Horizon cars together. [On the Commuter Rail, not subway] Never saw that personally, but I've seen pictures. Interesting to say the least.

A third 2007 thread revived!! WOW!!

The thread is 5 years old! Why?

 

 

What the hell is wrong with you dude?

 

Maybe he did a search on Sea Beach pictures, or mixed train pictures...

 

If G-d forbid he reposted this picture as a new thread, I'm sure all of you would have flamed the **** out of him!  If you don't like a post, don't comment.  Don't go out of your way to stand on your soap box and talk down to people  :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Why did you censor the word "God"? :huh: This isn't some politically correct nut job site.

 

The random thoughts thread exists exactly to prevent the scenarios described above.

If he reposted the picture in the Random Thoughts thread, there would be no issue. There are things like the random thoughts thread that prevent talking down and hurt feelings.
