The Redbird Ramble was a farewell to the redbirds and took place on 20 and 21 December, 2003. The day was bitterly cold and it seemed that some of the heat in the cars weren't working. The trip was to benefit the March of Dimes. And used 6 R-36 singles. I went on the 21st Trip only.
The train did a run-by (I did not participate) in the
middle track back to Dyckman
picking people up we ran down to 96th Street and swiched
onto the downtown express track we wanted to go up Lenox,
but a 2 (R-142) T/O thinking our train was
a three train went beyond the switch to the uptown track
but before the crossover switch to the local track.
Eventually the train was sent express via the local
track. It took a minute for the T/O to accept his strange
line-up. We then ran up Lenox, passed 145 Street (3) and swiched back onto the unique Drill
Track in the Lenox
Yard (This was a
surprise and not on the itinerary)
