Like the first day of M1 service!
Not necessarily so. The "ping pong" photos are relevant to the thread.

If I post photos of the scrap line, it will be on a new thread. No thread hijack here. LOL

Yep. Gotcha.

But to everyone else, let's keep this just the M1s. Anyone got pics of E775?

You’re violating your own wishes; the E775 is a former M3.

Newkirk, great shots. Thanks for rekindling Bay Ridge memories.

And i think being able to take shots of the M3s being sent off is good... There was an entire line of unique stock leaving from Bay Ridge. I would have spent hours in that.

They were spotted outside the Hillside shop yesterday afternoon getting some work done on the wheels.
