Coney Island Yard Tour

Post by Forest Glen » Wed Sep 14, 2011 10:50 am

I'm thinking about going on a tour of the Coney Island Yard, but before I spend $50 I want to know if it's worth it. I want to see a variety of rolling stock (particularly the R46 and R68/a. I wouldn't mind a R40 either). What does the tour encompass?

While I can't tell ou about a tour - you won't see any R-40's - they're all gone. And the R-46's are in Jamaica, Pitkin, and 207th Street.

seeing the images that come out of those tours, i would say it's well worth the 50 bucks if you're an avid transit fan =)
