My uncle works at Pitkin and that's true except you will see them this weekend as they will slowly retire. So it will be the same way as with the R38 (they will be in reserve service and only go in service if needed).

Hopefully there will be some sort of last ride for the slants, as they were iconic cars. But if not, that's fine too.

 

Anyone know if a pair is to be saved for the museum (apologies if it's been discussed already)?

You don't actually have to resize them manually. You can just keep them the same size and when uploading to Photobucket/ImageShack it has an option to resize your pics to 800 by 600 already.

They should really be gone by next week. I seriously can not stand their stallings due to malfunctioning doors on the A.

It's freaky to know that the end is so close for the R40's. I don't think I'm going to look for them this week, I was fortunate to ride 4280 on May 15th and it was great and a great way for me to say goodbye to some really cool subway cars. It's going to be weird going along the B Division and not seeing slants rolling down the tracks. And era ends right before our eyes. :cry:

Holy...

I saw a slant today at Jay. I was on the NB side, but a slant pulled up on the SB side. Couldn't get numbers or pics, because a R44 pulled in on the NB side, blocking my view altogether.

 

I might be able to catch a ride, since my friend lives near Lefferts. But I will definitely make my ride on Friday. Anybody up for railfanning?
