An R62A running on the 42nd Street Shuttle waits for passengers to board.

I really like the shape of this generation of cars. Bombardier built 825 of them from 1984 to 1987. (Kawasaki made the first 325 of the R62's) The city runs them on the 1 & 7 lines and the shuttle between Grand Central Station and Time Square. I snapped a shot of this one at Grand Central this past weekend. The MTA decal is the same as the ones we apply to the new R160's I help ship out of Kawasaki Rail Car in Yonkers every day.

I must admit, I have a not so secret desire to drive trains in the city for a living. Who knows; maybe one day I will.
