On and off over the last few months, I’ve posted about the remake of The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3. Today, we have some pictures. An intrepid Subchatter with insider access to some of the subway cars used as set pieces posted a whole bunch of neat photos. The photos include an old R62 car dressed up to look like a new R142.
In other nifty subway photography, long-time reader and frequent commenter Marc Shepherd recently spotted something odd: subways on flat-bed trucks crossing the George Washington Bridge. According to Shepherd’s first-hand account, police cleared the bridge so that the subway cars could cross unimpeded. Where these R160s were bound is anyone’s guess.
