The Chambers St station is definitely one of the most deteriorated in the whole system. It was really amazing to stand at the station platforms for some half hour during midday, just watching the trains coming and going, almost no riders getting on or off, in this partly cathedral-like, very run-down setting: Many of these signs can still be found at Chambers St; here you see the one in best shape: Now, let's hop onto the train; R-42 rules! At Canal St, one platform has been closed down. It can still be seen from the open-remaining platform like this. The rotting-away closed platform and the newly renovated open platform make a nice contrast: Bowery is also a very interesting station. As with Canal St, one platform has been closed down but is still visible from the other platform. But in contrast to Canal St, the open-remaining platform seems to be in worse shape than the one that's been closed down: At Essex St, the old trolley terminal is in plain view of the platforms: Now, finally some daylight and trains: And some railfan views: Myrtle Ave station: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
