My Bio

Hi there! My name is IRT47! I joined deviantART on April 26th, 2014 while viewing karate art based of Sonic the Hedgehog. I am a New Yorker myself and a train enthusiast. I do fanfiction, realistic art, track maps, as well as subway line bullets and signs. I also do transit photography.

I've been hooked onto MLP:FiM since 2018. I watched some episodes in the past during middle school, and was skeptical on the brony phenomenon. However, coming across pages here on dA featuring ponies and trains and meeting a few bronies in person made me gain my respect for them. I have since collected comics and merchandise related to the show (and I still am).

New username! :D

New username! :D

Hey all! Three months have flown by since the last journal posting on here. Things have gotten more and more tumultuous, I hope you've been hanging in there staying safe and staying positive as we go through this messed up year. Anyways, onto the subject of this, and that is the account changes. I now have CORE and a new username. The username is in reference to the IRT lines of the NYC subway (which are the number lines). It is simplified in terms of the account name which should help visitors make it more easier to find. It is now IRT47! Account changes have been progressing rapidly well (plus some possible new artwork on the way), so expect a lot more from this account very soon.

The pandemic has really made me feel a bit saddened and depressed from the huge loads of deaths and societal struggle this city is facing right now. It also made me not wanna post on here for a while. Although the worse is behind us, there is a more optimistic outlook in the months ahead, we still have a long way to go virus wise in terms of the next few months as we begin to safely re-open and go back to work, and we all must stay aware of it at all times. Do not give up. As many o

A little update, and something I wanna address...

Good day to all, and yes as you can see I have not done a journal writing in over a month. I have just turned 19 two days ago and man have I realized it's gonna be a long struggle to get my life's priorities together now that I've reached a new chapter in my life. The situation with college is the big reason why I haven't been on here as much lately. I might upload more train pictures as the months passes on. Share some more subway photos. Now there's something on mind I want to address. Recent events in the railfan community on Facebook and Instagram (especially in New York City) have prompted to me to put this on the journal here.
