The R train


R32 Anthony

Recommended Posts

Besides being the last BMT line to operate R32's, the (R) train is the only line that a person can transfer to every letter and number line!

(A)(C)(E) at 42nd Street- Times Square

(:D(D)(F)(V) at 34 Street- Herald Square

(G) at Queens Plaza

(J)(M)(Z) at Canal Street

(L) at 14 Street- Union Square

(N)(Q)(W) at 57 Street- 7 Ave.

(S) at Times Square- 42nd Street (We know it doesn't connect to the Franklin Aveune or Rockaway Park Shuttles. Nevertheless, it connects to at least one (S) train.

 

(1)(2)(3) at 42nd Street- Times Square

(4)(5)(6) at 59 Street- Lexington Aveune

(7) 74 Street in Queens

 

 

I know the (R) connects to these trains at other stops as well. Also you can use your Metrocard to connect from the (R) train at Whitehall Street to the Staten Island Railway at St. George via the Staten Island Ferry.

Tell me where the (R) is elevated my freind :P

 

The (R) is actually sort of an elevated rail for a split second when it crosses over the NY&A Railroad or Bay Ridge Branch. It's considered an underground overpass/bridge of some sort. :P

you got a point there, it does see a GLIMPSE of sunlight before heading back into the darkness. and on a clear day if you're lucky enough, you can see a (N) train going by as well

that is what happens when you have the longest local in the system. no one would want to ride the (R) from end to end.

 

I've rode it end to end. Gosh it takes so long :P

The (R) is not the Only BMT line with R32's no more, The (Q) is also a BMT line that uses an R32 but on a rare basis.
