Different (1) Trains and New Station Name

Some railfanning tidbits:

  1. Ten (10) cars of the R-62A “singles” class are no longer running on the (3) line, and are now running on the (1) line. What does this mean? It means you can possibly get a full size railfan window on the (1), if you are lucky.
  2. Shea Stadium, former home of the New York Mets, has been torn down, and has been replaced with Citi Field, the new home of the New York Mets. As such, the name of the adjacent subway station is changing from “Willets Point – Shea Stadium” to “Mets – Willets Point”. The Mets website already notes this change.

  1. Why don’t they call it the Citi Field Station?

    Oh, I know, In 20 years nobody will know what Citi is a reference to.

    Sorry, I could not resist
