8-09 A J train entering the middle track at Eastern Parkway, taken from the platform at the Broadway Junction station 8-09 47.9K
8-10 A pair of L trains.   The one on the left, a set of R42 cars, coming from Manhattan, and the one on the right, a set of R40 slants going to Manhattan. 8-10 27.6K
8-11 #9490 is one of many R36 cars out of place.  Its yard strip, black with purple diamond (appears white in this picture because of the flash), is indicative of the Corona Yard in Queens, home of the 7 line.  However, this car was spotted on the 6 line at the Brooklyn Bridge station. 8-11 28.5K
8-12 R29 car #8689 leads a 5 train out of Grand Central.  Notice the gray 5 sign it displays.  Gray was the color used on signs for the 5 line before the color coding in 1979.  The color on the maps was black, but black-on-black wouldn't look good on the trains. 8-12 27.2K
8-14 Triboro Coach #3064 passes 50th Avenue on its way to Queens Plaza.  (Q39) 8-14 24.4K
8-15 #2050 makes the turn onto 48th Street, bound for Ridgewood.  The Q39 card in the windshield indicates the sign doesn't work.  This bus was used in help wanted ads that were on Triboro buses a while ago.
These RTS CNG buses always seem to noticably tilt outwards while making turns. I guess it's those CNG cylinders up top that cause the bus to do that more than on other buses.
