24-02 If you thought that the Subway Series trains were something, how about this: half of a subway series train.  These six cars (including one hidden behind the column) were seen at the 52nd Street-Lincoln Avenue station of the 7 line. 24-02 19K
24-03 Picture #22-25 shows a clock that was 15 minutes ahead.  Here's the proof.  The clock below, set to the tone heard on the radio, reads “12:22,” and the clock says “12:37.”   Fifteen minutes fast! 24-03 23K

24-16 City Hall: the southernmost station on the 6 line.  It is the crown jewel of the New York City subway system.  It is a short loop station south of the Brooklyn Bridge station. It is only seen by train crews and the occasional passenger who ignores the “LAST STOP” announcements that are made between Canal Street and Brooklyn Bridge. Here is one of the wall signs. 24-16 18K
24-17 This picture was taken in the same general area as the picture on the front cover of the book Tracks of the New York City Subway by Peter J. Dougherty.  The only differences are:
1.  this picture was taken on a northbound train.
2.  A Q train is the subject of this picture.
3.  There is snow on the ground in this picture.
4.  It was snowing when this picture was taken.
5.  Both trains are a bit further south in this picture.
