Henry (MTR Admiralty) and Kris (me) are going RFing during break on this day. Here are our trip details:

 

Meet up at the Roosevelt Ave. station (specifically the Q53 bus stop, which is right in front of the bus terminal for the Q33, Q47 and Q49). This stop is on Broadway and 75th St. If you take the (E)(F)(R)(V) to the station, stay in the middle cars, and the exit should take you to the giant building/mezzanine, and an exit right next to the bus terminal. Meet up at the Q53 stop by 11:00.

 

Take the Q53 to the Rockaway Blvd. station on the (A). Arrive around 11:35.

Transfer to the (A) and wait for any (A) train. Take it to Howard Beach around 11:50.

Take an R40 (A) to Broad Channel by around 12:00-12:10.

Take a train back to Jay St. and arrive there by 1.

Take any (F) train and arrive at Smith 9th by 1:15.

Wait for a SMEE (F) at Smith 9th and take it to Coney Island. Arive by 2:30 at the latest.

 

The trip basically ends there, I know Henry and I are taking the (F) back to at least Jay St. If we don't feel tired, we'll do the (A) up CPW to 125th, and take it back down.

 

If you want to join us, then by all means feel free to (preferably at the stop). So far, R32 3838 is joining us.

If you want to join please RSVP here on this thread. I recommend that you (those that will be going for sure) to attach a post it or a sticker to your jacket that indicates your NYCTF handle and/or your name. That makes things a lot simpler! Plus, we could know you guys better!

If my meeting with Metsfan for tomorrow falls through (it looks like it may I haven't been able to contact him) I can be there.

 

I would be leaving Matawan NJ at about 8:30 into NY Penn and transfer to the F line arriving at about 10 o'clock so I should be there!

 

By the way, isn't it 74th and Broadway?

Yes, that's the station's name. But there are multiple entrances.

I was planning to help Straphangers Campaign for Subway Leaflet on Wednesday, but I think I could join you because tomorrow also has Leaflet.

I'll most likely holding paper that indicate Straphangers Campaign and No $3.50 Long Island Bus Fare.

Yeah is anyone gonna be there at 10:30?

Me and Henry are meeting up at the station at 10:30. I'll buy lunch from one of those gyro trucks and we should be at the stop by 10:40, waiting for people.

 

By the way, isn't it 74th and Broadway?

That's the station, but the actual Q53 stop is on 75th and Broadway.

We might stay until around 11:10-11:15 for any latecomers, but we encourage you to come at around 11:00. If you want to buy food when you get there (like a gyro), I suggest you come around 5-10 minutes earlier, 10:50ish.

Hey all, you might say I'm a railfanning virgin, I've never done it before ( wow that sounds so wrong!). I've just usually railfanned unknowingly throughout the day. Anyway, would you all be interested in having a real newbie with you all.

 

Thanks, mates

That's great!

If you look N-NW on the street view then you will see the terminal for the other buses and the entrance to the station. Now you know where to go from the station.

 

I will be wearing a black/grey jacket and sweats tomorrow. Everyone who is coming should have a post-it or a HELLO MY NAME IS sticker with their name and their handle on NYCTF, so we can keep track of who arrived and who we still have to wait for. Me and Henry will get to the bus stop by 10:40, if you get there earlier then be on the lookout for us around 10:40. Don't be late, we'll try to leave around 11:00 if everyone is there. We will wait until 11:10 if there are still people who RSVP'd and aren't there. Then we will leave. We are eating lunch (which can be bought at Jackson Hts. or at a random place at Jay) at Coney Island while we are waiting for the SMEE (F) to depart.

 

We hope to see everyone there! Keep in mind that it might rain tomorrow. Also, try not to crowd the RFW...:(
