These are some of my older videos. The first video was taken in May 2009. It is of a Brooklyn bound R142 4 train stopping at Fulton Street on the Lexington Ave Line. The second video was taken in August 2008. It is of a Brooklyn bound R143 L train departing 8th Ave/14th Street station.

These two videos were taken in October 2015 on the same trip respectively. The first video is of a RFW ride on an NYCTA R32 J train from Chambers St to Bowery. On the ride you could see some trackways that go to the Manhattan Bridge and just before the train arrives at Canal Street, you could barely see the closed half of the station. The line also goes under what used to be the Collect Pond which may or may not be the cause of the water problems at Chambers Street. The second video is of some NYCTA R32/R42/R160 J trains at Bowery Station. Bowery has long been one of the least used station in Manhattan but in recent years its ridership has gone up. The videos were taken by a closed exit at the station. This my last videos this year and I would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays! There will be more uploads next year.

The MTA ran a few extra trains yesterday for the Women's March crowds. This means rare rolling stock on lines they don't normally run ;) :

These two videos were taken in 2014 and 2015 respectively. The first video is of a RFW ride on an R62A 7 train from Times Square to Grand Central on the Flushing Line. The second video is a short video of an R143 L train departing 8th Ave station on the Canarsie Line. I took a somewhat similar video at the same location in 2008 with an older camera so I took this video with a newer Kodak camera.

These are my first subway uploads of 2016. They were both taken in June 2016. The first video is of a NYCTA R62A 6 train stopping at 86th Street on the Lexington Ave Line. The second video is of a Hudson Yards-bound NYCTA R188 7 train stopping at Times Square-42nd Street on the Flushing Line.

These videos were taken on a June 2016 trip to NYC. The first video is of some R143 L train action at 14th Street-Union Square station. The second video is of an R46 A train stopping at Chambers St-World Trade Center station.

Here are my most recent uploads. The first video is my last video from 2015 and is of R142 IRT Lexington Ave subway action at little used 138th Street-Grand Concourse station in the Bronx. I took a video of the station because the station is soon to be renovated. The second video is one of my earliest videos taken on my new camera. It is of the R1/9 museum train in Holiday service arriving at Queens Plaza station. The video was taken in November 2012.

Frank, what's the guy doing at the end of the second video? Tapping for luck? Giving the car his blessing? Making sure it's not an illusion? That action was new to me. :-D

These videos were taken on a trip to New York on June 2016. The first video is of some brief R46 and R160 action at Chambers Street-World Trade Center station on the IND. The second video is of a ride on an R46 R train from Canal Street to 8th Street-New York University station. Service on the R was kind of lacking on the weekend.
