111th St (BMT Jamaica Line) Subway Station + R42 (J) Train

Recommended Posts

 

Welcome to the first subway station tour of 2020. The 111th Street station (BMT Jamaica Line) was closed January 14, 2019 for six months of structural repairs. Unlike the repairs done at 121st Street and 104th Street, which were done one platform at a time, both platforms were closed simultaneously to cut the work from 12 months to 6 months. As a result, the station reopened on June 11, 2019. This station formerly had another entrance/exit at the east (railroad north) end. The staircase to 113th Street was removed, but the elevated station house beneath the tracks and single staircase to each platform remain boarded up and intact. The station house is now used for storage and offices. I decided to take action and make up for lost time and what better way than to film the 111th St (J) line stop, also featuring an R143 and an R160 on layup, as well as an R160 (to Jamaica Center) and a temporary out of retirement R42 (to Broad St)*. Please enjoy. * The R42s are temporarily out of retirement due to the R179s having door malfunction problems, which ultimately got pulled out of service.
