The story behind your avatar

Recommended Posts

After we heard many stories about each other's handles and signatures... how about, let's here stories about each other's avatars. Why did you choose your avatar?

 

Let me start with mine:

My avatar is the MTR logo. That's the carrier of the heavy rail lines in Hong Kong.

 

Yours?

My avatar is the (R). Chose it because I've been riding the (R) since I was a little kid and It's still my home line. I also hope to some day operate on the (R) for a bit.

I used to have the <7>, as that's both my favorite subway line and the line I use every single day to commute to school.

 

Now I have what I have for quite obvious reasons.

I have mine because I always thought the "meatball" logo looked good, and it's what I remember seeing on trains and all through out the system growing up.

Found it when I finally decided to change avatars. The M7 didn't quite look good compared to the beauty up there. -_-

I always thought the 60's TA logo was the best logo the system has ever had. The two tones "M" is a close second.

I happen to like that Red and Cream paint job on the former Triboro Coach MCI Classic. Also The Classics are 1 of my favorite bus models of all time!

Not to mention I had a very interesting experience riding 1 on the QM12 where there was no A/C so all the windows where open and the B/O decided to go over the 59 St Bridge Upper Level at about 55-60 MPH WITH THE FRONT DOOR OPEN! It really created some nice wind inside the bus!:cool:

(C) for Charles. I also used to take the (C) a lot. Behind the (V), it's my second favorite route.

The former depot that housed the M21. A depot I miss dearly. I've always though the HUD depot logo looked cool. I even walked from my apartment near Avenue C to where the old Hudson Pier deopt is located.

 

i remembered the PIER Depot. i used to take it on the M34 bus and seen it alot on the M6, M16, M34 and M42 routes.

 

what ever happened to that depot??

Well mine is based on What ever line I belong to. Every T/O and C/R belongs to a line regardless if they have a pick job or not. As of Now I am offically a (V) Line T/O.

Well, Acela is the best there ever is for rail travel in the US, so that's why I picked my avatar. :cool:

I picked mine because no other line would make sense with my username. Specifically, I picked the <6> because that's my most frequently used line.

The (EE) ran from 1967 to 1976. It ran weekdays during normal hours from 71st Avenue-Continental Avenue to Whitehall. The (EE)'s fellow local train on Queens Boulevard was the (GG) and on Broadway the (RR).

 

I always thought it was neat that Queens Boulevard had an (E) express and a (EE) local and that one stopped at 50th Street and one stopped at 49th Street in Manhattan.

 

Today, my favorite subway line is the (E).

I chose mine because I worked out of College Point since Steinway Transit merged with Queens Transit to form Queens Surface Corp. I looked for a Command Center logo but it isn't available.
