A photo of the rarely photographed United States Capitol subway system showed up in the New York Times recently.

I came across three great photos of the Jersey City waterfront taken in 1960 that show the extensive railroad infrastructure that used to exist there.

WMATA is replacing the 2.5 inch tall car number stickers on the subway car sides with new 5 inch tall car number stickers (as seen in the photo above). This will make identifying the car numbers of the subway cars you photograph much easier. Click HERE to see a photo of the old, small numbers below the operator’s cab window.
What more can you ask for? How about car number stickers ON THE FRONT OF THE CARS!?! The LIRR does it right (see below).
I know Robert and am very happy to see this result.
