Subway To-Do

Recommended Posts

So, here's my issue, the next time I'll be in NYC will most likely be the December holidays, a slim chance for being earlier though. I have compiled a small list of things I want to see/do in the subway, and here it is:

 

Subway To-Do's:

-Visit 181 street.

-Visit DeKalb Ave.

-Get a better look at Brooklyn Bridge, then ride through City Hall again.

-Revisit South Ferry and look at inner loop and video the heck out of it before it closes!

-Check out Fulton St.

-Check out Wall St.

-Ride an "A" train.

-Ride a "G" train.

-Catch and R160.

-Visit Astor Place.

-Ride yourself sick of R142s.

--Automated R160 on L?

--Visit 8 Ave on the L.

--Visit as many terminals as possible.

--(F) to Smith/9th street.

--(F) to Roosevelt Island.

--Visit Bowling Green.

 

I'd like to know what else to do for this subway extravaganza, so, what do you guys think I should add?

The R 160 on the L Line are not automated. The ATO program has been scrapped for now. Even CBTC is looking bad they spent way too much money on that and its still not 100% working as designed.

I agree with Harry; also ride the Brighton Express (:D. Who knows how much longer the R40 Slants/R40M's will be around over there.:confused:

Yeah, I've gotta get some good slantage in there, those are one of my favorite cars out there. No new car can touch that design, but it's gotta go sometime... :D

 

Good thing that automated program got scrapped, I don't like it one bit. Of course, desiring to be a TO I might be a little biased, but ATO seems riské.

Just think about it, who would you rather have operating your train: a real live person with a brain, or Microsoft Windows ?

 

as much as a Windows fan I am I can't trust it to operate my train as well as a human being

If you haven't already, take the (6) to the Brooklyn Bridge, and instead of getting off, wait for it to return on the uptown side. You can see the remains of the now-defunct City Hall station.

The way ATO is suppose to work you will still have a T/O but they just hit a button every 30 Seconds to tell the computer the T/O is still on the train. If the T/O don't hit the button the train brakes will go in Emergency. I am happy its been scrapped for now.

He has already done that.

You might have seen my video here, or on my youtube account. This time I plan to get it in hidef though.

As am I. As you might recall, I want to be a TO, and not necessarily the kind that hits this button every 30 sec, or else...
