Here is the start of a picture story of New York, principally Manhattan.

New York Ny3210

Bombardier R62a set at 42nd street Grand Central station.
These units are mostly individual cars with driving cabs both ends and made up into 10 car sets which seem to be the norm on the subway system in central New York.

More to follow, but not just trains....

The is a reasonable Transit Museum (link) on a disused underground spur at Court Street in Brooklyn mostly dedicated to former subway cars but also some interesting (alas no longer) tram history.

A caboose....Not used on the subway system as such. This one belonged to the LIRR - Long Island RailRoad which operates mostly to the east but has a suburban line that runs into Manhattan, Penn station.

The blue sign Cortlandt Street (click to see history) is from the now closed station that was underneath the world trade centre.

....Of course there was more to visit than trains and I was honorably invited to see some 'folks just down the road'...

Carl- I'm amazed you caught Madame at home. I guess she was in between vacations. And how is President Urkel doing?

The transport museum looks interesting. I hadn't heard of it before. NYC had extensive elevated railways prior to the construction of the subways (1930's, I think). The used quite a few Forneys for motive power. Did the museum have much on the elevated?

The Long Island RR is one of the commuter rail systems in to the city. Good thing the caboose doesn't have a cupola.
