Re: So Mr Trump says...

Let's see what happens when the tunnels fail. How are PA, NJ and NY tax payers going to subsidize farmers in the Midwest? $12 billion was set aside for farmers due to Trump's trade war.

Re: Post Your NYC Subway videos here.

These videos were also taken on a August 2016 trip to NYC. The first video is of some NYCTA R62A and R142A 4 and 6 train action at 103rd St on the Lexington IRT. 103rd street was recently renovated, the only way I can tell the difference it was 103rd Street was because of the placement of the lighti...

The first video is of some rerouted IND R160 E trains as well as F trains at 63rd Street-Lexington Ave a few months before the Second Ave Subway opened. The station was clearly going under renovation at the time. For some reason despite the reno...
