Re: R179 A train

I had gotten on *S*3019-3018-3017-3016-3015-3014-3013-3012-3011-3010*N* around 12:50 P.M. yesterday at Chambers Street, headed towards Far Rockaway, stayed there the whole time, then was on the Manhattan-bound run to 207th Street, then stayed on it (by which it was headed towards Lefferts Boulevard) up to 42nd Street. That was around 4:30 P.M. I was on the front cars, and the behavior among the younger railfans that was complained about on some threads relating to last holiday's Arnine runs was very much in evidence (including holding up smartphones to the speakers). I myself am a railfan, but I don't make a big deal of it; with me, it's more a case of quietly taking it in, absorbing the atmosphere and scenery, and memorizing how the pre-recorded announcements at each station sound. That plus traveling alone and not as part of a "herd."
