Like the 2016 edition, this is a very significant update to the book overall, and builds upon some of the big additions from last year. The major changes for 2017 were the inclusion of the Second Avenue Subway to the main maps section, and the restoration of W train service. The W came back on November 7, 2016 running from Ditmas Avenue-Astoria to Whitehall St. in Manhattan. The Second Avenue Subway opened on January 1, 2017.
Closeup maps for 9th Avenue, Fresh Pond Yard, and Rockaway Park Yard have been added, more homeballs identified, and the yards section includes a car/yard matrix for each facility. New details on the R179 and R211 car classes included, tower pages updated and text changes galore. If you haven't purchased a copy in a couple of years, this is the one to get!
Zach Summer won this year's front cover photo contest with his picture of two R142A cars in the barn at Pelham Yard. Both these cars have subsequently been converted to R188s and are operating on the Flushing line. Zach's back cover image appeard previously on the Yard Maps page in Black and White, but was so good it was selected for a color cover.
Economy shipping of the printed book is available for customers in the USA. Delivery times may be longer than Priority Mail (up to 10 days is possible), but for shipping to NYC and environs it's usually about 3 days. Note: UPS shipping is uninsured. If you choose UPS and your package is damaged in transit it will not be replaced. This is a result of a change to UPS insurance terms that excludes shipments of poly bag merchandise.
