Ha. Cool shots!

 

I was taking pictures of the same work trains last week at 74th Street.

 

Really? When was this?

I have to make sure I don't make any obscene gestures!

Just kidding, we are going to be doing a lot of work there so it's going to be hectic on the weekends.

In fact between the hours of 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM expect slight delays Monday through Friday.

 

On weekends expect delays. B)

What were you doing there if you don't mind me asking.

I'm not scared of heights but when you have to carry heavy tools and materials and your on slippery rails, loose or rotted ties.....it brings you down to earth.

I have a problem with heights; walking along a regular El off the ground, I don't think it would be so bad. One the flip side of the coin, if I had to stroll along, lets say the Express Track at Corona-111 St, or the highest point along the (1) Line, Id be shaking and probably pray.:eek:

We put up baskets under the joints at 125 st. and Broadway on the (1) that's pretty high.

 

You'll get used to the heights after a while, I did see one guy panic and freeze on the structure..they sent him on the streets.
