M-7 #7212LED

This morning, I noticed #7212 had all it's fluorescent tubes swapped out for LED tubes.

Re: M9 and M9A Procurement & Acceptance

The weekday schedule was posted by the MTA press release. But does anyone know the weekend schedule of the M-9's ?

I don't think it was the seats, but the long arm rests that were ripping suits.

FL-9 #2003 (On Topic)

On topic because I photographed this on the LIC branch in Queens. The overpass in the background should be Woodhaven Blvd. Any idea what this FL-9 is doing here in LIRR property ? This was not one of the three dedicated FL-9's that ran with the C-1 bi-levels, those engine numbers were #300, #301 & ...

Knox & Kane Railroad question

First time here, I usually hang out on the LIRR board. Years ago when Knox & Kane RR liquidated their rolling stock, what happened to ex-Manhattan el car #782 ? Judging by it's weathered condition, I would assume it was scrapped. Anyone know for sure ?

Test Photo

Just a test photo. I can't get photos from older posts before the change. Not sure if it's my computer.

While we're at it and not going off topic, any of these GP-38's on the NYAR roster ?
