X-treme56k- Transit Museum

Recommended Posts

Happy Museum Day:

I let my Admission Card at home, so I have to go quickly to Yorkville Library (after getting my beverages) at MET Museum and made to Transit Museum 1-hour before closing times.

Let the Transit Museum Feast BEGIN

Nice, but rather than to take the pics of the trains upclose, you should put some distance between yourself and the car so you can get more of the train in the shot.

Like step inside the car across the platform and take the pic of the other train from there.

IAWTP. The good news is that Yuki's pics are less blurry than they once were. He has potential.

Nice pics! But i got a ques. on the R12 why does it say Polo Grounds? Where was that?

 

Nice photos there. Answering the question above: Polo Grounds was in Harlem, around 155th Street in Manhattan. There were baseball stadiums that had the New York Giants (now in San Francisco) and the New York Yankees.

The loop mentioned was the Nassau St. Loop when the Nassau St line went via the Manhattan Bridge south side while the Broadway express went via the bridge's north side. The Polo Grounds were adjacent to Rucker basketball courts in Harlem. They are surrounded by project buildings. near one of them the place where home plate used to be is marked just like Ebbets Field in Brooklyn where the Brooklyn (now LA) Dodgers used to play.

The wooden box was a ticket since tickets were issued @first to ride the subway instead of tokens. The the turnstile to the left of that is an old turnstile that you passed after the ticket was chopped up by the grinder and the attendant stepped on the pedal to allow you to pass. Great Shots! Looks like they removed the two engines at the museum. The Lionel New York Central Commodore Vanderbilt and the Long Island GP38-2. Oh well. Thanks for the upto date tour.
