Re: NYC Subway Stations You Need to Visit

There are certain stations you can get a view from overpasses within the subterranean station of the action below. I believe 68 Street Hunter College on the IRT East side line has a viewing window above the two tracks. It's not open air-there are two moderately dirty windows. Been a while since I c...

Re: Chance of finding R32s

There was one A R32 set operating during rush hours earlier this year. Not sure if it still active.

Wait for a C R32. You'll definitely get an R32, maybe not initially but if you wait long enough you will.

Re: Cab-configurations on the #7 Line

I've rode 3 corner cabs in the past month during rush hour. How long did you wait for a corner cab?

An F express would be useful for riders who wish to go from the southern half of the Culver Line towards manhattan or back to brooklyn (Peak direction express service).

Re: R32s - Where to Find

How hard is it to find an R42? Hard. I waited 30 minutes to catch one but it never came so I ended up riding an R160A. When I got to terminus, there was an R42 on the layup track at the end of the station. I've seen them parked more than running whenever I make the trek out to the J/Z line I guess ...

Re: R40 Slant and Flat Run Together?

They could run together. When in doubt, search the nycsubway.org database. You'll find your answer there most of the time-The photos answer a bunch of my questions:

Re: Northeast Regional 188 - Accident In Philadelphia

Since the news reports were referencing the 1943 Congressional wreck in the same area, I decided to read up on it because the news has been conveniently leaving out the cause of the 1943 accident. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1943_Frankford_Junction_train_wreck" onclick="window.open(this.href);retu...

Re: 7 Train Delays protest

Do you have any suggestions. As it is, the #7 runs with headways less than two minutes during rush hour. There's no margin for error as the Steinway Tunnel is running at capacity. If someone hiccups and a train is delayed two minutes, the delay grows because now two trainloads of people are fightin...

Re: #7 Subway West Side Extension Hudson Yards Javits Center

Station sure looks nice. I've been by there a couple times this past winter and it doesn't seem to have changed much... Some construction materials and equipment (Boards, etc.) have been moved around a bit

Re: NYCTA at ground level

Thank god there are no more grade crossings. I am pretty sure that there would be this one stubborn, me-me-me-me-me driver that would think he/she's the king of the world and would pull over onto the tracks (I bet you could guess what'd happen next :-) ). A scene like this perhaps?: http://www.nycsu...

Re: Cab-configurations on the #7 Line

Yesterday (4/13/15), I saw that 1914 has been moved to the center of the train. 1954 was moved in to 1914s former place.

Re: R32/R42 Retirement Status

Why did it end-Do you mean why did it end without replacing the last R32s and R42s? The answer could technically be that they ran out of R160s to replace old cars with :-D . BUT, assuming my assumption was correct, here's the answer: The brand new R160s were being delivered to replace the old 60s su...

Re: Cab-configurations on the #7 Line

You beat me to it TJ . I see you remember my old username :-) I had a very successful afternoon's riding and picked up a few more numbers. Flushing-bound I rode #1954 (Express) from Times Square about 3:30 which was a surprise since you hadn't had that one on the list. Awesome. Let's add 1934 too. ...
