14-07 NYCB #6225 taking passengers at 4th Avenue & 86th Street in Brooklyn 14-07 37K
14-08 A view of R68A #5116.  What's missing?  The side sign! 14-08 38K
14-09 This is something I don't get:
The people who put up the street signs call the land bordered by New Utrecht Avenue, 9th Avenue, & 36th Street in Brooklyn "Heffernan Square," as this picture shows.  The Parks Department on the other hand, calls the same area "Hefferman Triangle."  I tend to agree with the Parks Department on this one, because of the fact it is a triangle.

14-10 A Manhattan-bound F train enters the Church Avenue station on the express track.  Unfortunately, it makes no stop here. 14-10 19K
14-11 A 4 train leaving Borough Hall.  Notice the white sign hanging over the platform. 14-11 15K
14-12 A 5 train leaving the same station.  Notice the marker lights on this train.  We get a better view of the white sign. 14-12 19K
14-13 Triboro Coach #770 at Woodhaven & Queens Boulevards. 14-13 31K
14-14 R36 #9502. 
This is a rarity.  Cars in the 9500 series with a black bar and purple diamond.   They usually have the yellow bar, with or without the diamond.  The purple diamond indicates that the car calls the Corona Yard its home.  Corona Yard is home to the only IRT line in Queens, the 7.  Even stranger is that the station from which this picture is taken is nowhere in Queens!   This is Whitlock Avenue in The Bronx, and 9502 is in a consist of R36 cars on the 6 line!
