  1. You ************. This is why SubChat is better. You f**kers on this website don't know respect or the technical details of the NYC Subway.
  2. So what? Who gives a damn what you think, you ************.
  3. I'm curious though as to what made the City decide to build an extension over to Grant Avenue rather than just finish what they had already started, since the four tracks that were supposed to continue along Pitkin Avenue dead-end at the bumper block. On the days that SMEEs ran on the I would look out the window and see the tracks that continued under Pitkin Aveue before the train switches to the Grant Avenue lead. It's obvious that they haven't been touched in a long time, as a train that layed-up on the two outer "local" tracks would have to go through a myriad of back and forth moves befor
  4. Yep, it's sad alright. You have to give the builders credit for planning ahead as they did. It's a shame the proposed lines never came to fruition.
  5. I asked an worker (a friend of mines) permission to go to these areas. BTW, these aren't my pictures.
  6. Yeah that was then, when you should of had the chance to watched them at the time when I first posted those vids in the first place! The thread on South 4th Street I started? You mean like this one: South 4th St Station (10 Full Sized Pics)? Well I didn't even started that thread. So what??? You can see pictures of South 4th Street (and the transfer passage) here: HopeTunnel.org, and here: South Fourth Street - The IND Second System South 4th Street was talked about many times on SubTalk/SubChat: NYPD arrested 20 people "Underbelly Project"—abandoned station
  7. Sorry, my bad. Good thing I went in there when I had the chance.
  8. You should of read the last sentence of that post then.
  9. Well, it was a mistake. That is just an open space due to that fact that the middle level at 145th Street is a four track line that at the northern end the A-train express tracks are about to start lowering, and that the Concourse tracks are about to start turning toward the Polo Grounds. In addition the Concourse line is a three-track line housed in a structure that also has to accomodate a four track line. If you even cared to read that last sentence of that post, I said : "The so called "bellmouth" N/O 145 St U/L on A-2 track is just a vagary of the construction in that area and was never i
  10. Ummm, yes I knew that. I did this back in 1994/95. I just forgot to mention when I did it. Not really a big deal now is it?
  11. It wasn't even useless when I posted the videos back in September of last year. If you people even cared to watched these vids at the time I posted them, you wouldn't be calling them "useless".
  12. Ummm, I never even said it was a bellmouth. I said "the so-called bellmouth", because that what many people assume it is. If you read my posts, you would know what I said about that. Of course it not a bellmouth, because the track-side wall at the north end of the 145th Street (Upper level) "moves" away from the tracks inside the station, and continues about 70-90 ft into the tunnel.
  13. True, but I posted these vids to give an hint for those who don't know this, that there is actually an shell station above.
