The LION must have been hiding under a cabbage leaf... and they went and changed the format of the forum on him. Oh well, here are some pics from this summer.

I was looking at some of you pics and a thought for fun.

A couple of weeks ago in the quiz forum in Classic Trains the question was to name all the possible routings one could use from Stillwell Av/ Coney Island to Archer Av/ Jamacia.  

What I remembered was the car float connection you took some pics of. ]

Anyway the routing I posted was this:  Sea Beach Line to 9th Av. Thence thru the freight connection to the dock. Then a car float to the LIRR Long Island City dock then the LIRR to Jamacia.

Hope this isn't too off topic.

Thx IGN

I was riding this (A) train about to cross the Jamaica Bay to the Rockaways. But the signal would not clear. He got permission from control to go down on to the tracks to clear the tripper, but it would not stay down. He got permission to hook it down, and we continued to the rockaways, meanwhile signal maintainers got on the job and were flagging trains through the signal while making whatever repairs it was that they had to make.

Maybe it's just me...but since this thread's mostly about transit/light rail...shouldn't it be in the Transit section?

This photo was taken through the storm doors of a moving (N) train operating on the West End Line in Brooklyn, due to construction on its own Sea Beach Line. Still here there is more construction. We are running on the middle track, a Track Inspection train is running to the right of us on the North Bound track, and a Work train is approaching us on the South Bound Track. Vision is obscured due to dirt on the windows, and by the special window on the inside storm door that limits lateral vision through the window, and also eliminates light from the car from the motorman's position.

Him will return with more photos late in June.
