Bill: You can never go wrong by putting a "Redbird" on the front of the calendar.

Picked up my copy at the TM store in GCT.

Great as always, Bill.

One minor comment though on July - in the narrative you mention the detail about the A-Bs being replaced with the R32s and you talk about the M line but you didn't identify the car 8326 in the photo as a R30 (1961).

I liked the NX service notice on the back cover. I noticed that they spelled Stillwell Avenue as "Stilwell". Interesting typo on someones part (or have we all been spelling it wrong all this time).

Thanks Allan.

If I didn't identify the car as an R-30, it was a minor slip. LuchAAA wouldn't mind. :)

Thanks for the heads up. Gotta get mine quick. At that store, they get snatched up by the tourists. They move faster than a speeding Redbird!

Actually circa 1962, I clocked an R-16 Manhattan bound (Railroad NORTH) on the Jamaica Exp between E/Pky and Bway/Myrtle at 60 MPH. The late George Abere was the M/M. Unfortunately by the time I became a M/M in 1969 they had deteriorated very badly.

When I was about 6 they were on GG line and I thought they were bullet trains.

Especially when it's and R36ML the rarest of them all. The only production car which was built in smaller numbers was the R11.

The only reason for the R-36 MLs was that the R-33 singles were built with R-36 parts that were on hand at St Louis so that Flushing Line passengers could get a preview of what the rest of the WF fleet would be like. After the Flushing line was fully equipped with R-36 WFs, the left over R-33 parts were used to complete the order of ML IRT cars which was 40 cars short.

It's unusual in that the cars were numbered 9524-9557 in the middle of the R36WF cars (between the WH and GE married pairs).
