While I appreciate the effort of taking pictures and posting them here, did you seriously need to take closeup shots of the builder plates and car numbers only? Where are the train pictures?

Is it newer or older rollsigns that refer to Queens Blvd Express as simply the "Queens Express"...I've see this on both the (E)&(F) some signs say Ave Americas Local/Queens Express like the one posted above and others say 6 Avenue Local/Queens Blvd Exp

 

It was the same with the R-142's when they 1st came out, I remember the (4)<5> used to say "Brooklyn Express" as opposed to "Eastern Parkway Exp"..and the <5> saying "Bronx Express", I personally like when they just refer to the Boro and weather the train is Local or Exp, but I can see why they would change it, it is rather vague

IMHO, I'd go with Queens Express as opposed to QB Exp. I mean, the line doesn't really run under the entirety of Queens Blvd. Only the stretch from Briarwood-Van Wyck to Grand Avenue is actually under Queens Blvd.

The older rollsigns have the Queens Express/Avenue of Americas!

Did they put in the R38 pair yet?

 

No. Also there is some discrepancy which pair it will be, originally thought it would be 4028-4029, now it's looking like 4140-1. Either way we'll see but remember just because a car is "given" to the museum is more of administriative thing...doesn't mean the car will immediately go on display...just means it gets added to the collection.
