R68As and the G train[edit]

Okay, Vcohen. I was the one you replied to about me observing r68As on the G line. I have since made an account. Anyway, you said I probably just mistook the model and gave me a source. Well I have a better one. My camera. I have many pictures and videos of G trains, and quite a big amount of them are R68As. They are in the 5000s (as in car number), have rubber between the side rollsign and the window, and have MTA logos in a different pattern. There is no denying that they are R68As. I unfortunately can't show you the pictures as of right now, because I just made my account, and I have to make 10 edits to pages and be more than 4 days old on Wikipedia in order to upload a photo. But I do have them. Also, (I don't mean to sound like a jerk) I didn't like being put down about my thought because I've been staring at NYC trains for many years. I know very much about the current models used and on which lines. Sorry if that sounded mean. I just wanted to tell you within one message. (GeneralPunger (talk) 00:00, 26 June 2015 (UTC))

I think my edit summary was too short and therefore not clear enough. Your camera cannot be a source. Your camera can catch a temporary replacement or something like this, that we don't reflect in articles. We only reflect car models assigned to routes according to the source I gave you. Vcohen (talk) 09:30, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
I guess that makes sense, but where does your source get its information? Is he an actual MTA worker, or does he just get his information out on the field? I think I'll do some out on the field observations myself to see if the R68As are swapped often, but I still do find it kind of weird how R68A didn't make it to the article. (GeneralPunger (talk) 12:31, 26 June 2015 (UTC))
Yes, he is an actual MTA worker. Field observations cannot be a source, it's simply prohibited. Vcohen (talk) 13:12, 26 June 2015 (UTC)
Actually, there's something weird about your source. For the A train, it says that only R46s are assigned, but here on Wikipedia, it says that there is one R32 and one R68A assigned to the A. (GeneralPunger (talk) 21:40, 26 June 2015 (UTC))
EDIT: Never-mind, I misread it. (GeneralPunger (talk) 00:05, 27 June 2015 (UTC))

R143's on the J/Z[edit]

@Vcohen: One of the source's that R143's are running on the J/Z is this: http://www.nycsubway.org/perl/show?145649 Another One: www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFPbp04q03o Another one: http://www.nyctransitforums.com/forums/topic/47830-r143-jz/. This is FAR then enough information to show that the R143's run on the J/Z almost everyday. EDIT: I also contacted the owner on thejoekorner, he said that R143's have been assigned to the J/Z, and he's working on updating the list right now. AahdTahar (talk) 19:06, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
I am sorry, but these sources are not reliable. Our source is here. Vcohen (talk) 20:00, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

thejoekorner is unreliable 107.150.180.158 (talk) 17:13, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

He is an MTA insider. It's not very likely that he is not reliable. @Vcohen: What do you think? 157.150.62.35 (talk) 21:38, 12 May 2016 (UTC)
I think he is the most reliable of what we have. Vcohen (talk) 04:23, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

Two identical photos[edit]

you're dumb how is that vandalism the b train article has two identical photos are you going to call that vandalism too cut your crap — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheManchoMan (talkcontribs) 12:32, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

if you cant tell the difference between an r142 and an r142a on that picture then that's your problem guy — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheManchoMan (talkcontribs) 12:37, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

not to mention the l train article has two nearly identical photos yet nobody gave a crap how ironic — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheManchoMan (talkcontribs) 12:40, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

Yes, you are right with your edit, I am sorry. However, it would be better if you explained your edits in edit summaries, instead of just warring and fighting. Vcohen (talk) 12:55, 26 December 2015 (UTC)

Park Place Franklin Shuttle images[edit]

When I posted requests for images of Park Place (BMT Franklin Avenue Line) on Wikipedia:WikiProject New York City Public Transportation/New York City Subway/Station pictures, I wanted to request more than just a station entrance. I was thinking more about the platform and/or the interior. I just wanted you to know why I don't necessarily think only the entrance should be covered. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 14:22, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

It's OK, but you requested "any view of the station house." Do you see the platform as part of the station house? Vcohen (talk) 14:28, 6 April 2016 (UTC)
Not really, but a shot of the station house could be captured from the platform. I actually thought about taking some of these when I was up there in September 2015, and I regret not doing so. Although I certainly like the ones that I captured, I can't deny this. My main issue is that the only images of the station itself are within the station artwork "Units of the Free." Naturally, they belong there, because the artwork is in those images. But I wanted to have something at the station itself that has nothing to do with the artwork or the bridges. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 15:49, 6 April 2016 (UTC)
Do you want to omit the word house and say "any view of the station?" Vcohen (talk) 17:42, 6 April 2016 (UTC)
It was a tough decision, but I'd have to say no. I consider "any other view of the station," but that doesn't seem specific enough. Having said that though, I think the images that are already in the article itself as of this writing are sufficient. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 04:30, 8 April 2016 (UTC)
But we always categorize station houses under entrances, at least when talking about images. If you say "station house," we should move this request to the Entrances column, shouldn't we? Vcohen (talk) 10:08, 8 April 2016 (UTC)

DeKalb Avenue (BMT Fourth Avenue Line) Applebee's entrance[edit]

I think you're going to like this. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 15:15, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

If not, I have four others you might be interested in.
Yes, I saw it a few minutes ago and already appreciated it. Thanks a lot. Vcohen (talk) 15:21, 2 July 2016 (UTC)

Station image updates[edit]

So you liked my images of the entrance to 174th-175th Streets (IND Concourse Line) station too? I'm glad you do. I'd also like you to know I have some more for Park Place (BMT Franklin Avenue Line) planned tomorrow, if not then tonight. Then I have a couple from Queens. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 02:21, 3 July 2016 (UTC)

Yes, I do, and I have used one of them in another language. Among your images there are many that really make me happy. Vcohen (talk) 12:07, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
I knew my work was turning up in other languages, including Russian, and I'm glad it is. Personally, I think I should've grabbed a shot of the 174th-175th station entrance from across the street. I have to warn you though that I am going to rename a lot of these. Also, I just finished Park Place (BMT Franklin Avenue Line) early this morning, and I just did Parsons Boulevard (IND Queens Boulevard Line) a few minutes ago, and those will all be renamed at some point as well. Sorry I didn't get 65th Street (IND Queens Boulevard Line), but I will be working on some images of Court Square (New York City Subway) on both the IND Queens Boulevard Line and IND Crosstown Line platforms. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 15:17, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
I saw your warning about renaming the files, and I don't see any problem with this, as every rename triggers an automatic update on each page where the file is used. Thank you once more. Vcohen (talk) 15:28, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
Glad you're okay with this. Also I saw that you redesigned the request list. Do you think we should add these items at 121st Street (BMT Jamaica Line) as a new request? And what else should we request and get other people to add? ---------User:DanTD (talk) 03:47, 11 July 2016 (UTC)
If you want to request something, why not? I think our main problem is not to request, but to get a photo... Vcohen (talk) 08:22, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

Scarborough station[edit]

re your recent reversion, WP:OTHERSTUFFEXISTS isn't a useful argument. The coordinates show where the station is, and a bad street view photo adds an unprofessional aspect to a page, while not being very useful to readers anyway. The external links section is really only meant for sites related to the topic, not navigation help or similar aspects. A photo of the station exterior, which I do have there, is just as beneficial ɱ (talk) · vbm · coi) 23:12, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

OK, let it remain without Street View. Vcohen (talk) 10:19, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Sutphin-Archer-JFK with Jamaica station[edit]

I think you might like this one, even if it's a little off center. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 02:06, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

Sorry if I couldn't get the view from the middle of the street.
It's great! Thank you. Vcohen (talk) 04:30, 25 September 2017 (UTC)
Your welcome. I also have some Lower Level BMT images coming soon as well. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 15:45, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

I responded in kind there too. --SkipperRipper (talk) 04:06, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

Third Avenue – 149th Street (IRT White Plains Road Line) new images[edit]

I don't know if any of my recent images of Third Avenue – 149th Street (IRT White Plains Road Line) are suitable enough to replace the existing one for you, but I have some anyhow. ---------User:DanTD (talk) 15:47, 26 November 2017 (UTC)

  • Thanks! I will replace it. Vcohen (talk) 18:13, 26 November 2017 (UTC)
