Re: Tuscarora Train of the Week No. 14 The QB and QT

I think this depends on when you became a M/M. I lived in Flatbush until 1965. When I was younger, say into the early '60s, I used to park my bike next to the right-of-way on the Ex-Lax Mansion property. While the express ran (green-red) the Standards went by city-bound with red-red markers. Sometime about 8:30 the last Triplex came through on the express with red-green markers. Only a couple minutes later the first Standard via Local via Bridge came through with RED-GREEN markers.

That's when I knew to ride the newsstand as the News and the Mirror were in.

BTW, remember that the locals ran express on Broadway (stopping at 49th Street ) until midnight-ish, the so-called theater specials. Same as the Q now, before it went to 96th Street.
