Nice photographs, dude.

 

Here's my version of the events. I took these at Coney Island, waiting for Kenneth (Urbanfortitude). The first seven photographs, however are actually from Brighton Beach.

Nice Stuff! Love the fact that the 2800s are still kicking it on the (Q)!:cool::tup:. Looks weird to see 160s along the Culver EL from the street near McDonalds. Im used to seeing just 46s, and every now and then a 32..

Nice!

 

Why did you decide to take the local (R) all the way from Queens to Brooklyn? Transfer at 57th for the (Q) and then at Atlantic for the (N)!

 

Also, what does the exterior LCD display say for the (M) shuttle?

(M) Shuttle

(M) Metropolitan Av

 

That's it I think. It might have a third display that says (M) Nassau St LCL

Glad you like the photos, the R68 cars are still on the (Q), and I don't see them going away anytime soon. R160s on (F) seem out of place at times, but eventually they'll fit in.

 

Nice pics for both of you!

 

Thanks a lot, buddy!

 

Nice shots. Looks like you two had fun!

 

We had a blast with this trip. We might do this again during spring break, if time allows it.

Nice!

I decided to take the (R) train from Jackson Heights Roosevelt Avenue Queens, through Manhattan, to 59th Street Brooklyn, because I don't ride the (R) very frequently so I decided to ride the (R). The (R) is a really good ride. The (N)(Q) weren't coming for a while also.

There is no Nassau St LCL display as a shuttle. I'm going to post the (M) shuttle again here. I know there's a lot of photographs we took today.

 

Here are again the photos.
