R-40 Slant to the Rockaways

Recommended Posts

So since the slants are almost all underneath the sea, I decided to slant hunting on the (A) with UrbanFortitude and his roommate and diffusedmind, so I go to Jay St to go take the (A) to Broadway-Nassau to wait there for some slants and then as the (A) train approaches Jay St, I see that it was a slant. Talk about perfect timing. So we took that to 207th and took it back down all the way to Mott Ave for some photo ops. Even though a overzealous T/O at Mott avenue tried to stop me and ruin the fun, everything went smoothly afterwords. Here are some shots from the trip.

Is that T/O smiling with Joy like a little kid in a candy shop? I wonder who it can be?

From what North-Eastern Train Operator said, he was taking the train to the yard due to 4 cars in the set were put on the death list and will be cut from the train set.

Why do you guys think I was have a good time. I was doing my job, I like my job. I saw people taken pitcher am smallied for the camera. What was I soupse to do put my middle finger up for them. :) I think smilling was the bets choice, don't you. :) AS for the (V) sign don't like to spending time getting out of the Terms on the Lay Up. It takes to much time to get from #1 on the roll to #28 So I pick a letter, this case a (V) and stoped there. Last week I think I had a (G) sign up. People still want to get on the train even if it saids "NIS" in frount so it does not matter to me.

Compared to all the T/Os that I see that look like they are constipated while they operate, I think you were the only T/O I've seen happy while operating :)
