wimg_34.jpg The New York Times profiles author Philip Ashforth Coppola and his Silver Connections book series in this article, One Man’s Opus to New York’s Subway Art, Decades in the Making. Philip has been painstakingly sketching the tile artwork and other station decoration of New York's subway since 1978. I was unaware of this until now, but Philip used my photo of 18th Street on the original IRT to do the corresponding sketches, as he had never been in this abandoned station. Awesome! :-)

holiday_train_thumb.jpg An annual Sunday holiday season tradition returns: original IND subway cars from the 1930s will run in service on part of the E and F lines between Queens Plaza and 2nd Avenue every Sunday from November 30 through December 28. The wicker seats! The ceiling fans! The groaning prewar traction motors! The smell of steel dust! The bewildered passengers! In addition, five retired buses manufactured from the 1950s through 1970s will run weekdays on the 42nd Street crosstown route. MTA Press Release here. Edited to add: Departure time schedule (subject to change/modification): Leaving 2nd Ave northbound to Queens Plaza: 10:05, 11:33, 1:03, 2:33, 4:03. Leaving Queens Plaza southbound to 2nd Ave: 10:44, 12:14, 1:44, 3:14, 4:44.

sm_nxmac20_thumb.png The developer has released a new version of NXSYS, Signalling and Interlocking Simulator for the Apple Mac OSX operating system. NXSYS/Mac is a port of NXSYS Version 2 which allows for unrestricted two-dimensional track and panel layouts and comes with four sample interlockings: Version 2 ports of Progman St. and Islington from Version 1, and full implementations of two actual fairly complex New York City interlockings, Atlantic Avenue on the IRT (Division A) and Broadway-Myrtle on the BMT (Division B). Full HTML documentation of the new Macintosh features as well as a thorough upgrading of the extensive Version 1 helpfile are included. (The Microsoft Windows release of NXSYS Version 2 is not ready yet).
