Transit’s R42 retirement party went off without a hitch today. They put stickers to replicate the original 1969 rollsigns on the two cars leading northbound

I wouldn't say without a hitch...we were almost an hour late to finish because of the delay from the bridge.

And quite frankly I'd say that was a pretty good thing since it essentially became an unplanned photo stop.

AFAIK there were no equipment troubles, no over-stimulated nuts disrupting service, and no serious incidents, so I'm quite happy with how smooth everything went.

I did hear that some of the over-stimulated nuts had to be told to stop using profanity, as they were loudly swearing every time an R179 passed by.

Up next gonna be the R32 sadly. I thought they'll be retired once the R211s come. Guessing the MTA wanna get rid of them once and for all. 

Probably the next thing you know the R179s botta have another breakdown (not gonna jinx)
