The first section of the Second Avenue Subway finally opened today. The first northbound originated at 57th Street on the northbound express track A-4.The consist was 9108-12 and 9113-17. The train was held at 63rd Street for several minutes. Once we resumed our journey we passed the first southbound train at 72nd Street. The consist of the first southbound train was 8957-53 and 8848-52.
Many people were there railfans and normal folks alike and everyone seemed to be having a good time. Two handouts were available. A “Second Avenue Subway Grand Opening” map. This is larger than the regular map. One side displays the city wide subway maps and a blowup of the midtown area. The other side feature photo and artworks from the new subway and the old els. Also available was a flyer for the new “Q” service.
In addition to myself Sub-Chat was represented by Bill Newkirk, Fred G and Wakefield –East 241, Union Turnpike, Allan, Catfish 44, William Padron, R32_3672, HenryR32#3730. If any other were there please let me known and I will add your name to roll.
