Some Love for Smith-9th Under Construction

Recommended Posts

Before I arrived at the Transit Museum I visited Smith-9th to see the extent of construction. Exiting the portal after Carroll Street, I

 

saw the express tracks are removed until about somewhere on the curve on the Culver Viaduct. The newly erected barricades have changed the

 

landscape of the station in terms of the view. This isn't to gripe as they are vital to worker safety and train operation.

Intermission, of sorts, here as I attended the TM fan trip.

 

After the R9's cruised by the sun began to peek out so I stayed at Smith-9th for a while. I wanted to see more R160's and the light kept

 

getting better.

Once again an amazing job! I love the shots after the sun came out, especially the black and white "Kentile Flooring" one.

Thanks Mark. It's all about keeping the shutter speed as high as you can to eliminate blur.

Thanks, I love that sign as an old-NYC artifact. I hope they preserve it as an historic item.

Nice job with the (F)(G) photos. Do you like the R46 or R160 better?

 

Thanks. I prefer the R46 to photograph but the R160 to ride.

 

Brilliant shots as always!

 

Thanks, Charles!

 

Great job! The SMSed R46 adds a nice touch to the first photo

 

Thank you!

 

Beautiful pictures dude!:tup:

let's pray after the reconstruction of Smith-9 Streets station,that the mosaics on the platforms will survive.

 

Thanks. I hope those are preserved, too.
