Better than cool, really interesting. I like it very much.  ;)

We don't see often pictures of the areas usually closed to the public.

Yeah, getting a kick out the pics that gives us an insider view of the happenings of the CI shops and yard. Pretty complex operation going on there. You can only imagine the wealth of expertise the technicians that maintain the rolling stock must have. They can take those skillsets and pretty much work anywhere in the US. They are set for life with their knowledge of mechanics with heavy equipment, with the MTA with the excellent pay and benefits, or if they choose to, anywhere else they wish to work in the entire global industry, perhaps even around the world. maybe even with the Paris metro? Who knows?

 

Thank you for the pics Brighton Local.

Do the tracks outside lead straight in, or do the trains have to be lifted by another device first onto the "examination" track?

Yes, right into the Barn, but the 3rd rail ends here, right outside.
