8/6th AV Local/Express
« on: May 29, 2013, 01:01:59 pm »
Hey BVE community,have you ever wondered why the A and D were express lines and the B and C are local?




WELL HERE'S A POSSIBILITY:


The A and D represent Christ's death A.D.(after death)


The B and C represent B.C.(before Christ)

A.D. doesn't stand for after death, it stands for Anno Domini meaning "modern years" in Latin.

Working on the Northbound 2nd Ave Subway and the eastbound JFK express.
Upcoming projects are the R11, R15 and R12 trains.

It actually doesn't. It's a very commonly mistaken, but as trainbrain said it stands for "anno Domini"

Anno Domini means "In the year of our Lord"

Can we not bump three year old topics? Thanks. If you are going to bump such an old topic, the reply better be useful rather than something completely pointless.
