The N.Y. Division of the ERA is pleased to announce a return visit to NYC Transit’s Coney Island Complex in Brooklyn on Saturday, September 13, 2008. Each of you is no doubt familiar with this huge complex, where thousands of subway cars are maintained and overhauled for service on all subway divisions.
All attendees will meet at the main entrance to the complex, which is located along Shell Road, just south of the southwest corner of Shell Road and Avenue X. You must be at that entrance no later than 10:30 AM that morning. The entrance can be reached by taking the F train to Avenue X and then walking south along Shell Road to the complex entrance. In anticipation of the need for security clearance for all attendees, please make certain to have a photo ID in your possession.
It is expected that the visit and tour will last approximately two hours. Representatives from NYCTA will be our hosts to point out interesting features of the shop and its various subdivisions.
