Re: Tuscarora Dispatch No 25 / R-32 and R-38 Rollsigns

re: holding a life-boat drill on the Titanic an hour after they struck the iceberg.

Your comment, is a more than appropriate ironic comparison. NYT, November '67 reported daily chaos after Chrystie. At NY Div. meetings I remember hearing stories about unusual equipment showing up where it was not expected to operate, destination signs not matching a train's actual route, and of course the cardbord signs with terminals or destinations written in magic marker.

I took a photo at Marcy Ave. June or July '68, of the front of an inbound R9, with "JJ" printed on a white background, and the route name/terminal box next to it, completely blank.
