    the fate of ny's oldest trains

    Discussion started by Average White Railfan - Dec 7, 2001

    well kiddies. the trains that gave rise to the culture we embrace so dearly are now meeting their maker. for those who love old ny trains this is a omenous sight. these are the trains that were covered with graffiti for nearly 20 years and painted red in the late 80's and early 1990's

    it's kind of sad to see. too bad a railway museum couldnt of kept a few. One day when i own thousands of acres in the middle of the desert in colorado i am going to purchase an extinct train line, similar to the one entering davy jones locker, so i could play on it with my friends. kind of like a fort or club house.

    i better get back to work and start saving

    this might be a good thing...okay lets say the train get all covered with see life for thousands of years, maybe more. if the ocean freezes and aliens or some crazy new life form is digging in the ice and stumbles across these trains, what would they think?
    damn, crazy shit

    that is the worst. so annoying.
    they should alternate the voices, so like friday night its flavor flav, saturday night is howard kosel, sunday night is joe pesci...
    that would be fun.

    i dont mean to sound like some tree hugger.... but since when can you just dump huge pieces of junk into the ocean? and that is weird... normally wiht old trains or someitng like that.. they would be auctioned off .. put in a museum .. or put in a park or someting some shit.. not just dumped in the ocean..

    oh and yah.. CTA (chicago transit authority) trains got them damn voices to .. it pisses me off... and they are always off.. like .. it will be at fullerton stop and it will say "next stop fullerton" lol .. or the doors will be closed .. and it will say "doors closing" heh
