Wow! Flushing & Brighton was used! That's sweet! :cool: The (Q) is famous now:p lol.

 

Now Im thinking, if the "Runaway" train takes off in the tunnel at Flushing-Main St, and ends up in Brighton, it's utilizing the cross-over at Queensboro Plaza, down Broadway, via the Bridge into Brooklyn, and looks like its headed down to at least West 8 St via Brighton.. I can't wait to see it.

 

*I love how Hoyt-Schermerhorn posed as Grand Central-42 St*:o

looks good. i was at Woodside when they had the R142 (6) there for shooting. I was like "whoa, what is that doing here?" until my mom told me they were redoing the movie.

Yeah I find that funny as well because those stations are the opposite. Grand Central is nice, has great tile work etc, and Hoyt Schermerhorn is dirty, and has bland IND tile

and that "R142A" is obviously a R62A the face of a R142/A.

 

and I thought it was funny how it came to $10,000,000.01

Seems like they're trying to capture the "quirky humor" featured in the original. It was a little funny, but the gravity of the situation kinda stifled it.

Fail... guess they're hoping no one will notice. They got the obvious one though.

 

It's also the old 12:30 express service sign. They covered that up with signs that say 3:00.

I just heard current ABC/ESPN announcer and former St.Johns point guard/former Knick/ Mark Jackson say that Pelham 123 was his favorite movie when he was a kid.:tup:
