Re: [PHOTO] Station Identification Needed (R-42)

Posted by gbs on Tue Dec 7 01:04:58 2021, in response to [PHOTO] Station Identification Needed (R-42), posted by Bill Newkirk on Mon Dec 6 10:21:16 2021.

I was going to question the date of your photo, because I thought that by 1978 the pantograph gates had already been installed on the R40s and R42s, but I see that's not correct. By May, 1977 some (or all) of the slants had received them, by February, 1978 some of the R42s received the new front sign curtains with the modern, smaller bullets, by August 1979 some of the R42s had received the pantographs:

May, 1977:

February, 1978:

August, 1979:
