60's- To see the R32s and R38s when new and photograph them with my camera.

70's- To see and photograph the R44s and R46s.

80's- To see and photograph the R62s, R62As, R68s, and R68As when new as well as the Post GOH Cars.

90's- To photograph trains with the World Trade Center in it.

I'd go back to around the early 2000s, just to see the time when the R142As were just being integrated into the system.


And of course I'd love to go back to the 1920s, and ride the classier, elegant train sets.

1950's...all the old stuff still running, brand new SMEE cars and most of the elevated lines still intact. Three baseball teams in NYC, good economic time, lots of things going on and plenty of places to go that aren't around anymore or just aren't what they used to be.

I'd go back to.....

1903-1940: to see all the els when they were all intact

1964: To see the World's Fair R-33s/R-36s when new

1969: to take one last ride on the BMT Q cars

1973: To see the subway at the beginning of the years of decay

1978/79: To see the climax of the decay

1984-1990: To see all the cars after they were cleaned up, but before they were overhauled, to see the dawn of the Redbirds, the End of the R-10, the (9)(H)(K)(Q6)<R>(JFK) trains, Greenbirds (and other Colorbirds, if any), and much more!

2001-2003: To see the Redbirds die out

I would go to 1979. That's when the TA had all the great cars running (except the R44 and R46.) The R10-21's were still running, the R26-R42's were all in it's original color and shape. It was fun back then, because I remember, I could go to the front car of every line, except the E,F, and a few on the A and N lines and look out the window. That was fun.
