I love your videos Frank.
I don't get the opportunity to visit a lot of areas of the system, but your videos let me go there at least in part.
Keep 'em coming!! :-D

These two videos were some of my last videos taken in 2014. They both were taken at the RFW of two separate C trains back in November 2014. Both videos are pretty short. The first video was taken at the RFW of an R32 C train from Chambers St-World Trade Center to Fulton Street shortly after the opening of the new Fulton Transit Center. The second video was taken at the RFW of another R32 C train from 81st Street-Museum of Natural History to 86th Street on CPW.

This is a video that I recorded back on September 27th, 2015, of a 7 train of R188s and two R trains of R46s at Jackson Heights-74th St/Broadway

These two videos are some of the latest videos I took. The videos were both taken in November of 2015. The first video is of an R160 F train stopping at 63rd Street-Lexington Ave on the 63rd Street Line. The station is one of the more recent stations in the NYC Subway system, having opened in 1989. The station is undergoing renovation and expansion for the Second Ave Subway project at the moment which can be seen in the video. The expansion should be done in a couple of months. The second video is of some IRT R62 and R142 action at 34th Street-Penn Station. You will hear some musician playing somewhere in the station. I'm a bit of a IND person so I don't use the IRT due to the crowds unless I'm in a rush.

These two videos were taken in June 2015. They were taken on a trip to the Rockaway Park. It was a cold, windy, and dreary day. The ride out to the Rockaways is a long but pleasant trip. The stations in the Rockaways (particularly on the Rockaway Park Branch) are some of the lowest used stations in the system. The R46s are the mainstay of the A train and Rockaway Shuttle service. The first video is of a ride on an R46 shuttle train from Beach 105th Street to Beach 90th Street. The second video is of an Far Rockaway-bound R46 A train stopping at Broad Channel station. It's pretty cool going out to the Rockaways but I wonder how was the ride when the R1/9's and R10s ruled the line?

Both of these videos were taken in June and August 2015 respectively. The first video is of a ride on a NYCTA R46 subway train on the A from Euclid Ave to Broadway Junction in East New York. It's a good express run although there is two curves on the line between Van Siclen Ave and Broadway Junction. The second video is of some A/C/E R46 and R160 action at the IND Spring Street station in SoHo and Hudson Square. I usually take videos at local stations because they are usually quieter than express stations.

These two videos were both taken in July 2015. The first video is of a RFW ride on an NYCTA R42 J train over the Williamsburg Bridge from Essex Street to Marcy Ave. The second video is of a RFW on the same train from Marcy Ave to Myrtle Ave Broadway on a NYCTA R42 J Express train. I haven't rode an R42 in a while and it was nice to ride them again. I used to ride these trains often when I went to the city. It is a shame the last ones will be retired soon. :(

These videos were taken in August and October 2015 respectively. The first video is of some R160 and R46 action at 23rd Street/8th Avenue. Note that there are R160s trains on the C train due to a car swap with the Eastern Division. The second video is of some more R160 and R46 action at 50th Street/8th Avenue. Note some work going on the lower level of 50th St. I usually take videos in local stations because they tend to be a bit quieter than express stations.

These videos were taken in October 2015. The first video is of some R62A 7 train action at the newly opened 34th Street-Hudson Yards station. I personally like the station. It's very modern and has some beautiful artwork in it. I rode the incline elevators, they were interesting but underwhelming. The second video is of a RFW ride on a Flushing-bound R62A 7 train from 34th Street-Hudson Yards to Times Square-42nd Street. The ride was fairly fast, although noisy over the curve to 42nd Street despite the gentleness of the curve. I did enjoy the ride very much. :-D
