The (3) train I was on made express stops between Franklin Av and Utica Av. Arrived at New Lots Av at 9:33am.


I got little tired from riding the trains and called it a day but I strongly feel that I can beat the record. I just planning things for for my real attempt and looking for people that is willing to go along with me during the record attempt and/or be a witness for the trip. I took some pictures during my trial attempt and I have to scan them to my computer.


Sidenotes during the trial run: All the (A) trains I rode were R44s. The Lefferts Blvd Shuttle is marked with a Yellow S train and it was an R44. All 1 and 7 trains were R62A's. The 3 train I was on was a R62 but made express stops between Franklin Av and Utica Av. During the day of the trial run all (A) trains went to 168th St and had to transfer to a shuttle train to 207th St.


I will keep everyone posted when I do my record attempt.

Well damn....I don't know you did it. Good luck:tup:

Thanks I was planning to do the full attempt that day but I had a hard time getting witnesses and media coverage during my record attempt. Hopefully sometime later this month or June I do the full attempt.
