Welcome to Subway Web News! So many of you have visited this site since the World Trade Center Photos were published. This has been a tough time for our country but our spirit and resolve has not waned. It is when times are tough that good character has a chance to show through. May God help America to yet realize her potential. In a world of darkness and evil, may we always stand for what is good, holy and right. Robert DiStefano

I came to see the WTC photos and stayed and visited the whole site. As a displace NYCer, I miss the subway and train systems, but I enjoyed seeing what is going on and what happened to the old Redbirds... Ya'all (yeah I moved down South) did a great job... the pictures are excellent and heart wrenching. Thank you.

This website is very educational and informative. It allows you to witness the devastation of 9/11/01 first hand. No one, not even those who experienced the tragedy first hand could realize the true essence of what was taking place on that day. Even now, when I look up at the empty space where the Towers once stood, I can't believe that it is gone. Thank you for this thoughtful and sincere website.

Dear Mr. Di Stefano, I'd like to start off by saying that this was one of the most enjoyable websites I have visited in a long time. I especially enjoyed the interactive test on signals. I am a train lover and am going to go out and buy the train simulator for Christmas. Very informative and very enjoyable... I'll be sure to share the site with all my friends. Abe

Your pictures wear heartwrenching. Please continue to have pictures like this to constantly remind us of this terrible tragedy. Believe it or not there are people out there who are tired of the stories, pictures and comments. They would like to forget it ever happened. We need these pictures to remind us that we are not invincible and while we may be a free country, there are others who do not perceive it this way. In order to remain a free country, we must stick together and rebuild what our forefathers fought and died for. I have not been down to the site but am hoping to get there soon. Maybe when they build that walkway. September 11th, like December 7th for our parents and grandparents, will forever live in our hearts. Toni Backer, Ozone Park, NY

I,m retired MOTOR INSTRUCTOR Jerry Esposito and I must say that I really enjoy seeing all the old "haunts" that I used to work at. I especially enjoy the information on rolling stock and WORK TRAINS. I spent close to 15 years on misc. equipment as a train operator and I think that was probably the best years of my transit career. As a motor instructor, I worked misc.(36 yard) and then I went to FLAGGING. As I said, there is a lot of great memories and friends and this web site is something that keeps a lot of that alive. Keep up the good work and say HI to my good friend and brother in Christ, TSS Bob DiStefano. Thank you and Happy Holidays.... Jerry Esposito

Excellent photo essays about the WTC tragedy. It shows that the devastation and loss (with the exception of the loss of life) went beyond the two towers and into the underground. I had never seen photos of the damage to the subway lines underground.

I love New York. I also love the New York Subway System (or MTA...?). I spent 6 days visiting with my daughter starting 12/21/2001. We rode the subway every opportunity possible. It's in incredible system. Fast. Efficient. Safe. If I were younger, I'd enjoy considering making the MTA a career. I genuinely like your website, too. You answered my question regarding car length. I'll be back for the other questions that keep running through my mind. Thanks. Arden Warner warner@airmail.net Dallas, TX 75238

Before sept. 11 I prayed for this nation. But after this terrible incident my prayers are harder than before. God will bless this nation for ever and help all the americans to put our sight in Jesus and I know for sure that he is in complet control. I feel so sorry for the family of the victims and I also pray for them too. Our president is doing very good God bless him and will give him all the wisdom he needs to direct this nation. My simple message is this we all are living for very hard and difficult moments in our lifes and in our nation but if we trust in Jesus The Lord and if we only seek him with all our hearts he will answer our prayers, dry our tears and comfort our souls and I have faith that he will defend us from our enemies and the whole world will know that the God from the US is the truly God. Keep our faith up because Jesus is coming.maritzabonilla@aol.com from chicago.

I was struck by the comment on one set of photos that the photographer was sorry that the MTA workers did not get the press for their efforts in rescue and recovery that other groups (FDNY) did. You must know that there are millions of people all over the U. S. and the world that know that thousands of the good men and women of New York and elsewhere worked to save lives in the aftermath. We hold all of you special in our hearts and will be forever grateful. The web site is a very moving piece. It is eloquent and moving as it relates these more-than-tragic events to us.

Dear Sir: I believe a mistake was made regarding the history of the transit system. Having worked at the 1964-65 World"s Fair, I believe the brand new 7 line cars now known as the "redbirds" were indeed the first air conditioned cars. Your web site claimed the air conditioned car did not exist until 1967. Thanks for all you have done!!!

Fantastic site. I retired from the Transit Authority in 1986 after 20 years on the NYC Transit Police Dept. I remember quite well the many times going through the Cortlandt Street station while on train and foot patrol. I worked out of Columbus Circle and Stillwell Avenue station Districts and also at 370 Jay Street HQ and have many fond memories of "Transit." Keep up the good work and continued success to you. Thanks for the memories.

I was in the North Tower on September 11th, I am very grateful to at least have this page, I don't really want to relive the date but at least I have some sense of what happened afterwards without having to go to the scene! Thank you!!! Also for the record, I fled the North Tower via the now fully collapsed Cortlandt Street Station, there was one very brave MTA worker trying to direct us out into the bedlam and horror above, I've read later that no one was on that station platform before it collapsed; I don't know his name but I do know that he deserved and still deserves alot of recognition, that man risked his life for about 50 people. Thank you again!!!

I am 14 years old from Australia and since April 2001, I started to save up to come visit The United States Of America. I was juggeling 2 jobs aswell as school. I was saving every cent of my money as my mum could not afford my air-fare or spending money, I had to do it alone. On September 11th, here in Australia was almost midnight and I was torn, It really hit me, my holiday is over. I didn't go to school or work i was in front of the T.V all day crying, my dreams were shuttered. Things started to improve and on November 22nd I went to America! The security was stricked, it took me 3 hours to get through but once i was on the plane, I was soooo happy! I had a great time over there and I think you are all very strong. People are so nice in America, God bless you all, my dream came true, so will yours!

Thanks for running this site! It's so helpful to be able to go to one site for all of the NYC transit news stories each day (I'm a transportation consultant in NYC). I like the recent improvements to the layout, as well.

My great grandfather Laban Greenberg first owned carriages for hire in New York City in the early 1900's. He later owned and operated the first bus in New York City which became the Avenue B and East Broadway Bus Company. It was one of the first bus companies in New York City. If you have any resources where I can get additional information, I would greatly appreciate it if you could please let me know. Thank you, Nan Kane email: nankane6@charter.net

Dear Robert, Nice website. One small thing, the word "city" is not part of the New York Transit Museum's official title. If you check the link on your site to the Museum's web page you will see that the word "city" does not appear. If possible, could you update the text on your website to reflect the Museum's correct name? Thank you in advance.

First I must say that I am so proud to be an "AMERICAN"! I came across your web page by chance. It caught my eye because my dad retired from Transit and he loved the trains...In my heart I will never forget the infamous "9/11/01" and the loss of our Heroes,brothers and sisters...Thank you the pictures there were some I had not seen yet. It never ceases to amaze me whenever I look back at the tragedy that took place on this sad day. As an Officer and seeing the site in person at the time when I look at the pictures it just brings tears to my heart. God Bless us all and take away all evil thoughts and minds... Thank you. Det/Sgt.

Good day: The advertisement for the new R-10 cars does not show an R-10, but car number 1575, which was rebuilt in the new design as a prototype following an accident. The mechanical equipment remained as originally built and the car continued to be used in trains of R-1 to R-9 equipment. D. Simon

HI; I have been browsing through your Archives and reliving some very happy memories of the old Buses and Trolley's in and near my old neighborhood in Brooklyn. The pictures are AWESOME!! I was born in Bay Ridge in 1933, on 68th St between 3rd and Ovington Ave. Moved to 69th off 8th av, then to Sunset Pk area 46th st. Started 1st grade @ St Thomas Aquinas in 1939,lived on 7th Btween 4th and 5th av 17 years. Great website, keep up the good work. As Bob Hope would say "Thanks for the Memories."

Subway Web News is absolutely wonderful. I lived in the New York City area for many years and rode the subways extensively for school and for work. In the Great Blackout in the 1960's I was able to get out of the IND station at Euclid Avenue only because our train was able to get the front half of the first car into the station. I had the opportunity of riding the opening-day train from Howard Beach to the Rockaways. For me, this website is a connection with my past; sometimes joyous, other times wistful, but worthwhile.

I live in California but my childhood was in Jamaica, Queens in the 1960s. Somehow I stumbled on your website and was astonished to see bus photos in some very familiar locations. I remember very well the buses using the special left turn lane from Hillside Ave onto Merrick Blvd to get to the 165th St terminal (is it still there?). Also, my first exposure to the bizzare economics and politics of public transit monopolies was wondering why the "red buses" from Long Island could drop off passengers at the 179th St subway station but could not pick up passengers as they headed to the 165th St. terminal. Anyway, the web site is great, and I'll be visiting whenever I'm in a nostalgic mood.

WWWOOOWWW!!!!, We got the new PC's in Storeroom 172 in 2001, just before 9/11. Found the RTO page shortly after getting the pc's and the whole depot was floored by the 9/11 pics. Spent days trying to get the RTO page at home, finnally found this page while looking at SUBWAY.ORG . As far as subway sites go this is the best, love the pictures, trains and busses, pictures of the S.I. Railroad, and yes Pauls picture are great to. If your a MTA NYCT Employe this site helps alot in learning the history of the system, and the changes in technology and work conditions over the years. Yes the second thing I do when I get to work ( after calling the office so I'll get paid ) is check the RTO page for new news (the MTA version) then when I get home I check Subwaywebnews for the real news, and outside views of the Greatest Transportaion System in the World. Keep up the great job. Railroad Stockhandler T/A Gerald Lamantia >Gbonne@ aol.com

What a great way to spend a rainy evening ! What great memories seeing all the vintage trains evokes in this ex-Brooklynite! . I remember riding the subways in the early 1960s and the distinctive sound the old trains made as they rounded the bend . As a child each outing with my mom on the subway was a learning experience. She instilled in me a great appreciation for New York City and its history. God Bless and continue your great work ! P.Fox Maysville N.C. P.S. I cant wait to visit the subway museum and take a ride on one of your fan trains.

Fun site and my appreciation for the work you put into it. Several years ago I found there existed both a Stillwell Avenue and a subway station with that name. No idea which Stillwell it was named after, but since I and my sons carry the family name, it was fun to see what we could learn about the old station. I was pleased to learn from this site that the station is or has been renovated. Hopefully, one day we will get to tour the station and "claim ownership" or whatever. Roger Stillwell Washington, DC

You are my spirit, you are my being, you are mi unity. All of thy body, thy soul and thy spirit are filled with my creation, because thou art the great work of art from my hands. Join then thy hands with mine and in a prayer of silence and you will feel the presence of thy father in the love with Beni Elohim (children of God). You will lnow that there is only one creator, that is both father and mother because he has engendered and conceived you. Without me there is no life, without me there is no way, without me, there is no truth, because I am the life, I am the way and the truth, because the Beni Elohim carry my signs in all his body, soul and spirit, and as the universe, thou are full of my signs, so I say unto you, I am the great sign. I have come so that this time thy eyes not only see the flesh but the flesh that is light and to insure that Elohim has the word of God and that he fulfils it. It was said unto you that in the last times thy eyes would see signs, others would sound those signs, while others would hear these signs. So it is and shall be, that the return of Elohim, thou will feel in thy hearts without fear because thou will have recognized the presence of thy father, thy spirit in one joy and happiness and will shout, God the Father, God the Son on earth, because we are one and so it is written. Thou art the door of the world. I say to you that I am the door to the heavens and I will open it to my children because we are one and you will come unto me. Because I have come to sing a new song, my voice with thy voices and in spite of what thou are passing in these days of tribulation; in the new order which are the same new heavens, will be seen by thy eyes of light, because so I have promised you and Elohim fulfils his promises. I was the first and I will be with the last, I will heal thy wounds and I will dry thy tears because thou art my children. I have come to break the prisons of the soul and of the spirit because I am the freedom of my children, I have come to open thy blind eyes to my light so that you can see and feel that it is the only true light and will rejoice in seeing it. I have come to make you walk because thy feet have been walking erroneously in a way that is not mine and I will teach you and you will walk it together with me. I have come so that my holy blood be thy sacred grail, in thy bodies, so that the mysteries on earth that are not mysteries in the heavens be revealed to thy eyes and understanding. Because thou have strong fingers and powerful steady hands, thou are the muscles and tendons of my powerful arm, because thou are the retina of my eyes, when they look for you full of love, justice and mercy. Because I am the only one that can transform thy heart of flesh to heart of light, these are the good news I bring you. I am the new love, the new justice, the new mercy, all will come to me because so it is written even before this generation was born, the son looks for his father. Thou are the messiah in thy lives because thou art my chosen ones and I give thee the blessing of my Holy Spirit. I am the great silence and thou art the silence. The day has come when the heavens have joined with the earth because I am here among you, because it is no longer time to preach, as it was done for two thousand times, no, now is the time to reap what is ripe and I have come to reap together with those called angels which are also thy brothers and Beni Elohim. I am the father of the sons and the son among the sons. I am the all powerful Elohim who comes to plant new seeds of light. Thou art the sons of my love and justice, of my mercy and my truth and I have come to look for you to give you the eternal peace and harmony you so much desire. The good news are that I am with you, the great face of all faces. I give thee my blessing saying to thee and I have covered long and short roads to come to see you, although I have always been with you, but now that I am among you, my heart beats in unison with thine and when you read these good news, thy heart will feel that it has born again. So I have written and this is my saying. Love to the Beni Elohim. Elohim Hadonai Gebor Yeshua el Gebor
