1 of the rare N announcements

Recommended Posts

I know for a fact this is a rare announcement for the N. This only appeared for 2 weekends in January 2009 and it's the N to Whitehall St from Astoria.

 

Enjoy! ;)

Nice catch Dom, I miss the old days when the (N) went down to Whitehall or went via the tunnel. I was lucky to catch and R32, the RFW was amazing especially seeing the (M) tracks branch in by Broad Street.

Thanks Nick! :cool:

In a way I miss the old days of how the N used to be. Heck I even manage to get on 1 of the ultra rare 4900 Series R42 on the N once!:D

Yes it was related to that G.O. and it was rather strange. I even had to spend at least 5 minutes trying to explain to 2 people who was insisting that the N was going to Brooklyn when the automated announcements, the FIND, and the interior display where showing/saying N to Whitehall St. It almost got a bit ugly as they where going to yell @ me as I was trying to explain what it was showing on the FIND.

Thank goodness the FIND was working as it did came in handy it proving on what I was saying!

There's still a R32 loose on the R as well, just only 1 as of right now!

 

Nice catch, guess the (N) has something in it's service, :D!

 

Thanks! :) There was some weird G.O. going on that weekend.

That's what I did also and after imitating it, I said, "This (N) train is acting like (R) train or making (R) stops to Whitehall St.

The (E) to 2nd Avenue GO is the worse offender. About 2-3 weeks ago, I had to keep on explaining to passengers why the (E) was terminating at 2nd Avenue. Passengers kept on asking me how to get to Chambers Street. I told them to stay on and get off at West 4th Street for the (A).

 

That's also what I did when (E) pull over at Broadway-Lafayette and 2nd Av and plus either downtown or uptown (A) local was running express on 8th Av which made very difficult.

 

When I was on (A), I would say, "Ladies & Gentlemen! Because of construction work, (E) trains are not going to Spring, Canal Sts and World Trade Center. For service to Spring, Canal Sts and World Trade Center-Chambers St, stay on this (A) local!"

 

Even with (D) G.O., it was chaos.

 

When I was on (N) via (R) to Whitehall St, I wonder if they're paying attention. Not at all. Even on (D) line, same story.

I noticed from the Stop listing that whoever set it up forgot to remove Cortlandt St Station. :)

 

Oh, odd stops... (W)-315 last trip lays up at CIY... last stop is Kings Highway on (N).

 

"MTA... going your way..." :)
