[PHOTO] randyo, Where Art Thou ?

Posted by Bill Newkirk on Mon Nov 21 16:58:01 2022

In the past you commented about motorman's uniforms. Any comments about the one pictured here ?
Also, were uniforms standard on all three divisions at the time this photo was taken in 1965 ?
Grand Central (Shuttle) October 24, 1965

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wore them till the day I retired in 2012. Were Motormen required to wear bow ties back then?, Or were they optional with neckties?

The motorman in the old uniform looks a whole like the man identified as motorman Ralph Rungo in the December 1956 issue of Transit magazine (lower left). According to rest of the article, he had more than 40 years on the job in 1956 so maybe the Good-By is for Mr. Rungo with 50 years of service.

The official uniform for both M/M and C/Rs was a dark blue long (four in hand) tie and a ligh blue shirt. The uniform in the photo seems to be the pinstripe to which I have often referred and according to an IND old timer was called ďindigo pinstripe.Ē Although the thicker ďhickory stripeĒ which is most often seen worn by mainline RR engineers was allowed, the pinstripe was the preferred uniform for B of T and NYCTA M/M although it seems that the hickory stripe overall was more popular among IRT M/M.

Another piece of info relative to train crew uniforms is that the badge number were coded by number with IND badges started with a number 1, BMT badges started with a number 3 and IRT badges started with a number 6. Wh the gaps between the starting numbers I never found out. The original IND M/Msí badges were the same design but did not have numbers at all. Another oddity is that BMT and IRT badges had the division stamped under the number but the iND badges did not. By the time I started as a C/R in 1966, the TA seemed to have abandoned the diviaion number codes probably in anticipation of the BMT/IND Chrystie merger since my C/R badge started with a number 1 even though I was on the BMT and my M/Mís badge started with a number 7 which didnít fit any of the previous patterns at all. In late 1966, the TA started issuing uniform caps and new badges to all the plat C/Rs although I did manage to retain my original punched tin C/R badge. Even after thetA designed better looking badged for its C/Rs and Bus operators, the M/Mís badge was still the punched tin type. Also while, the official TA uniform code required the badge to be attached to the cap, for some reason it was BMT tradition for the M/M to not wear badges and in all my years of railfanning I never saw a BMT M/M with one. In keeping with BMT tradition even after the merger, I considered myself a BMT M/M ans so never wore mine either. There were also two types of M/Msí caps allowed. One was a black silk cap looking like a cross between a fishermanís cap and a C/R cap and the other was the traditional RR style cap that was supposed to match the stripes of the rest of the uniform. I opted for the RR style cap and preferred the 2 tone one with the blue peak and striped top I believed originated by the Kromer Klean Kloth Kap Company, at one time a well known manufacturer of RR apparel.

Your posts are always interesting and informative, but sometimes hard to read because they are so dense. I took the liberty of creating paragraphs, which makes the post more readable:

Thank you for your information on uniforms.

chicagomotorman asked if bow or neck ties were part of the uniform. Since the posted photo was a special occasion, I guess not.

I can't help but ask whether there are any remaining "dress code" standards in 2022? Or - like so many things now - is the rule basically "whatever"?

You underestimate. I had several hundred employees who took pride in their jobs. One in particular spent 63 years changing brake shoes. He took pride in the fact that none were ever ground mis-adjusted or improperly installed. He was actually insulted when he turned 80 years old and I offered him a light duty job. Pride is not measurable but the results are.

Thank you so much for the well detailed information. Very interesting.

I noticed that you used abbreviations M/M for Motormen, and C/R for Conductors. Has the NYCTS and their predecessors always referred to them by abbreviations? In Chicago, abbreviations were never used for those jobs.

Thanks for the help. I once tried to make the posts into paragraphs and for some reason when the message was posted, the paragraphing disappeared and all the sentences jumbled together.

The NYCTA used them on the work programs and I believe also on the employee sign in sheets as well, but itís been a longer time since Iíve seen a sign in sheet so I donít remember.

NYCTA started issuing uniforms for C/Rs and bus operators in 1966 but did not do the same thing for the M/M, leaving their dress up to the individual. Sometime in the 1980s although Iím not exactly sure the NYCTA started issuing pinstriped overalls and matching jumpers (jackets) to the M/M. A few years later. again iím not exactly sure of the year but it was after the M/M title was changed to train operator (T/O) the T/O uniforms were changed to dark blue trousers identical to the C/Rsí and white shirts with thin black pinstripes.

It looks like you tried posting during the on-the-hour maintenance period, when the site is flaky for a few minutes after the hour. Best to reload right after you go back to see if it posted.

The problem is that the site never acknowledged that that the first post was OK so thatís why I posted again.

Yes but you should know that you should NEVER post again unless you are 100% sure your post didnít go through. Not receiving acknowledgment that your post was successful is not proff that it didnít go through, as you have now learned. Instead, you should reload the site index in a separate tab to see if your post is there or not. If itís not there and the site is otherwise behaving normally, then you should repost.
