Train Trip Via the Bronx During Spring Break

Recommended Posts

This is one of the 2 trips during spring Break I plan on doing. Here's my map I plan on doing

 

1. I'm going to take the (B) to from W 116th Street to W 125th or W 145th Streets for the (D).

 

2. Then I'll take the (D) to 161st Street-Yankees Stadium for the (4)<4>

 

3. Then I'll take the (4)<4> to Woodlawn or Bedford Park Blvd and then take it back to E 125th for the (6)<6>

 

4. Take the (6)<6> to Parkchester and take more pics from there.

 

5. After getting few pics of the (6)<6> take the <6> to Pelham Bay Park and get more pics.

 

6. Take the (6)<6> to E 125th Street for the (4) and take the (4) to 161st Street- Yankees Stadium for the (D)

 

7. Ride the (D) to W 145th Street for the (B) and take it home and thats the end of my trip.

 

If you read this thread please tell me what did you think of this trip cause these are lines I never railfan

(A little off-topic) I keep on forgetting that you'll have the spring break April 8-17. Our school had Spring Break March 13-31.

 

That would be great, you should also railfan on the (2) and (5) as well. But this route is great anyway.

Nice iten, I might do a little CPW over the spring break. But most likely I'll be venturing in Queens. Hope we bump into each other at a random station! Ha.

My spring break is from April 9 through April 21.

 

The Bronx is hard to railfan if your mission is to ride on every line, since it is all north-south. For all lines (trackage-wise), here is a plan:

 

Start: 145 St./St. Nicholas

(D) to 205

(B) to 161

(4) to Woodlawn

(4) to 149/Grand Conc.

(2) to 241

(2) to E180

(5) to Dyre

(5) to 125

<6>(6) to Pelham Bay

(6) to 125

Bx15 to 125 (1)

(1) to 242

 

End from there. It is long, though.

Aside from the NYCS, I'm thinking about a trip into New Jersey, PATH included.

 

Here's a plan that covers all of the well-known NJ railfan locations:

 

PATH to Hoboken

Railfan Hoboken

PATH to Newark

:nec:to Elizabeth

Railfan Elizabeth

:nec:to Princeton Jct.

Railfan Princeton Jct.

:nec:to NYP.

 

The good part about this is that you can remove some parts of it without severely affecting the other parts' feasibility.

Nice iten.

I was considering once PATH from WTC to NWK. Then NEC to Trenton. Walk to the RiverLine, ride it to Camden (Walter Rand), walk to PATCO. Ride PATCO to Philly. Railfan inside Philly. Get out using SEPTA R7 to Trenton and NEC to NWK and PATH back.

nah I'm doing lines I barely or never take pics of

 

I know, but it acts as a short cut, because the 1 could be a wee bit long. And man, you HAVE to do the IRT expresses in the Bronx.
