This was the closest I could get. You can see them; next to the Redbirds.

Oh no, not again - I hope they didn't break up another 5-car set again - tell me it is a full two 5-car set frown [Of course anyone that can see the yard from another angle]

Photo taken from the bridge that connects from Willets Pt. Station to Corona Park?

BTW, I do want to take a picture of the construction in Hunters Point. So far, I keep missing because somebody keeps blocking the window or I am in an awkward position, suddenly taking out the camera for no apparant reason.

Great pictures, btw!

I had a feeling those R142's would be back.

Hopefully the problem with the third rail's been fixed and they'll start showing up for good.

I went there today, but was too scared to take out my camera! There were 10 R142A's.

Did anyone see the front LED on the R142A? It read (7).

BTW, when I was railfanning the 7 back to GCT, I noticed that the third rail cover has been removed on the express track between "WooDooSai" and Junction Boulevard.
