Unless the plans are not made, be at Uptown 6 local side of 42/GC no later than 7 PM. The train is supposed to arrive around 7:15, if the G.O. is in effect for this run.

Then you should not post something which is not definitive that they will NOT run today. Not for nothing but people will not take your word as a reliable source when you post a message like this.

One Low-V ran today - sandwiched in between a string of R-1/9s that stretched their "legs" today from 207th St to Pitkin and return. #100 in the lead both ways and with car #1000 in the consist. Return trip up 8th Ave caught the beginning of the PM rush.

A little confused by your reply ... my handle comes with me attached, along with a buttplug but I'll always let someone else use it under supervision. Heh.

As to the "light-weight composite jobbies" TELL me they're not still handing out those garbage plastic thingies? Last time I was down there, hung out with a switchman in A division and he and I and Nancy were laughing our asses off at what a joke they were. Tits break off so easily, you don't have to leave the platform to turn one of those in, they deliver! Heh.

you can also use a 7/8th socket with a ratchet as a brake handle.this was told to me by a retired car inspector[pitkin yard] who used this many times.

I presume they were coupled iron-to-iron. But if you stick a Lo-V in the middle of an R-1/9 trainset, what happens to the rear section? Do they still trainline?
