[PHOTOS] ***R-10's On The (F) 1980 ***

Posted by Bill Newkirk on Mon Mar 12 19:18:58 2018

This post dedicated to William (Mr. R-10) Padron

Over view at Stillwell Terminal, from left to right. R-42's on the (B), R-10's on the (F), also R-46's on the (F),
R-27/30's on the (D) and R-32's on the (N). That gas tank is long gone. August 1980

The sublime and the ridiculous. That's sublime on the right, ridiculous on the left. The roadbed needed some foliage premeditation. (August 1980)

Leaving Stillwell Terminal, R-10's are headed to Manhattan & Jamaica-179th St. I heard that the Queens Blvd. folks were howling
that their cool, comfy and quiet R-46's were replaced by denizens from the 8th Ave. subway. Railfans didn't mind. (August 1980)

Approaching the Van Sicklen (now Neptune Ave) station, R-10's are ready for the Culver treatment.
In my opinion, riding the R-10's on the Culver "el" was a once in a lifetime experience. (November 1980)

With apologies to Johnny Tillotson, this is poetry in motion. Or at least a limerick !
Approaching the West 8th St. station. (October 1980)

#3226 & #3237 lead the way entering the lower level of West 8th St station.
If you look closely, you'll see another train of R-10's leaving. (October 1980)

R-10's are seen here at Smith-9th St with the Twin Towers part of the skyline.
R-10's were assigned to the (GG), but as a full length (F) train, they were so sweet ! (September 1980)

Coming soon.......R-10's on the (D) !
