These are the results of my trip on June 4th, 2013
My round trip on the 7, with both express and local runs:


Clips from the newly rebuilt and reopened Rockaway branch. Personally, I love listening to the new track as the trains roll over them:




And finally other tidbits from that day:

Absolutely! But we all know who to blame for these poor quality shows:

Excellent videos, especially the 7 train round trip. Do you plan to make more of these? Rides on the N and J trains would be interesting.

Agreed.

Someone else did a cabview video of the entire F train in the southbound direction.

I would love to see a cabview video of the entire 1 train, both directions, while the "old" South Ferry is still open.

I remember in 1964 we were living in Cincinnati. I was supposed to go to the Worlds Fair with my great aunt. Something happened and I did not get to go..I was so disappointed. Oh yea .. she went and I stayed in Cincinnati.

When I was a kid my sister and I were sent off nearly ever summer to visit my mom in New York...

I loved riding on the subway. I remember I really like the Low-V cars. Why? Simple. a little kid could stand up and see out of them because the windows were low. Many times my mom would accommodate me and go to the lead car so myself and my sister could look out.

Those of you that ever rode on a Low-V know that there motors had a distinctive sound.

By the way, Low-V means Low voltage.

Lov-V on Fan Trips and special runs.





You can gear that special motor noise starting at about 3:19 on this video. Just a little. You need to be aboard the train to really hear it.

there are full line railfan vids for the J already on youtube, so i don't plan on doing that one, and the N would be difficult since there is no direct railfan window, which makes tunnel shots pointless.

Also, doing such a video on the 1 would technically be easier, BUT considering I would have to film through the tiny cab window, and might make the Operator uncomfortable, I'm not sure that would work out very well either.

disapointing metro for this city i repeat.

it's incredible to not see state of the art designed cars?
when i look at this city and amazing things (new one trade center etc...) incredible to not see a metro that meets the prestigious of the town
