Who Rode the R-32 Fantrip on Sunday, January 9

Posted by IRTRedbirdR33 on Thu Jan 13 06:30:52 2022



Who rode the R-32 train on Sunday, January 9, 2022? I will add your name to the roll call in the Almanac if you wish to be noted.

So far I have Catfish and Bill form Maspeth.

Larry, RedbirdR33

I was on the first trip out of Brighton Beach, did the round trip.

Funny how Dekalb Master didn't know who punched at Church and they had to explain who they were to get into Prospect Park. Tower had to do some work Sunday instead of keeping the interlocking fleeted which it had been the entire week without the B train.

I rode one round trip from/to Herald Square on the 11:00 departure from 96th Street and the 12:30 departure from Brighton Beach.

I was on the trip on January 9th - got on at 86th Street / Second Ave. at just after 11 AM, went to Brighton Beach, then went to Atlantic Ave. Barclay Center where I switched to the LIRR as I did not want to be in the crowded cars much longer and had other things planned. I still liked the trip but the cold weather put a damper on it for me.

I was there- on the 11:00 out of 96th.

I would be most honored if you'd include me in the appropriate Almanac entry :)

I was on the first trip from Second Avenue and 96th Street ~11 A.M., then the second trip from Brighton Beach back to Manhattan. Was in #3361 for the former, #3360 for the latter.

Can we also add that Mrs. Main, who though not a railfan, is extraordinarily patient and tolerant of my love for the subway, was on the trip as well. She had a good time!

I will be happy to do so. I am glad that you had such a good time.

When the last train ran on the 3rd Avenue El in The Bronx my wife was with me.

I rode from 96th to Newkirk on the 11a.m pullout. After that I just shot pix and videos along the route.

I boarded the 10 am trip out of Brighton Beach at Lex-63 and rode the remainder of the day with Bill from Maspeth. I believe we were in #3840.

Was there the entire time from the first trip until the very last run, including the "mini parade of trains" at the very end.

I'm the one who made those custom "Thank You for 58 Years Strong" R32 pins with many various routes.

My handle doesn't reflect this here, but I'm known as "Trackwerk" on other platforms.

It was surely a high energy trip. I wish I had more pins available but glad I still got many out there.

To all you guys who responded I have been adding your name to the list of dignitaries onboard that trip.

I will make a special posting of it next week.

Glad to hear that everyone had such a good time.

I did NOT ride the train, but for the record, I DID captured it with images on my cell phone camera towards R-32 car #3360 at the north end of 86th Street-2nd Avenue when it arrived there at 4:02pm N/B, and at 4:13pm S/B.

I was there at that one station only between 3:15pm and 4:15pm, as I had only planned to be there, with no need to ride the train, which was fully packed in the first two cars of the uptown run. I was doing all this observation in a very secretive manner. And so it goes...

I noticed, on the trip I made, on one of the ends the horn sounded almost like that on PATH trains, rather than the usual sound such horns made on these type R cars.

On the first Sunday run on December 19, 2021, an R-1/9 whistle was installed on the north end of the train (car #3894).

It's the same horn as the PATH trains, WABCO AA2. NYCT work diesels use that horn as well.

Next time we need to add a Leslie AA or S5 horn, that would be interesting! I was there, all day, across from the Crosby or whatever was on the 3646.

That was an older Airchime that hasn't been used in years. It wasn't until the last Jan 9th trip it finally sounded better.
