If you look at the fine print at the bottom left of the streetview image, you'll see the Image is dated August 2009...

Right, but that could be a legal/copyright date, or a processing date, or an uploaded date, or the date of capture.

Subway running on the Interstate?

No. The date in the corner of street view seems to be the date of the shot. They started putting it there about 6 months ago. Having compared the pictures to things that have changed, construction, etc., it seems to be the date of the picture or very close to it.

Cool pic BTW. Have you ever done the antique subway car ride around Christmas in NYC?

Subway running on the Interstate?

Postby WeeeZer14 » Sat Dec 22, 2012 4:06 am

I found an image that combines two of my likes/hobbies:

A NYC subway car traveling down I-80 E in NJ headed towards NYC.

It is a R-160A contract "B" car (middle of the consist). That's around $1.3 million sitting on that truck. It is headed from the Alstrom factory in Hornell, NY to NYC. :geek:

To be a total geek, 9551 would have been the 4th car in the 5 car consist headed by car 9548. Here is a picture of that consist on the E line in October of 2009. :ugeek: So that definitely proves this Google imagery is no newer than summer of 2009.

Boy, I do miss mass transit being here in TN. :(

And if you have the time, here is a National Geographic video showing the factory and how they built these things.
