I THINK, SFT is getting platform screen doors. The scaffolding above the edge of the platform looks like the preparation for the doors.

 

Ugh, I hope they don't that just destroys my railfanning pictures! :mad:

Cool photos, looks great. But I hate those HEET gates. Why can't they stick to turnstiles?

 

People jump turnstiles. They can't jump HEETs.

HEETs are an impediment to evacuation, though. If there's a need for an emergency evacuation of the station, they can cost lives.

It isn't getting platform screen doors. The floor is done, and the scaffolding is for installing the lighting & ductwork.

The new signals are up and running, so now the (1) for now gets a bottom yellow, for the old loop south of Rector S/B, and another bottom yellow south of Rector N/B. I was on that line yesterday, and the wood walls are now torn down. The punch box is also up and running. Money has been put back on the (1), so the oldies are coming back, bumping other oldies already there. A break at each end, no more round and round...........

Sounds like it'll be nice for train crews having a (E) chambers style station to chill for a few minutes.

Yes, so the (6) will be the line us A Div rookies will see alot of. They usually kept rookies on the (1) and (6), but the (1) is now a contender with the big boys once again. Guess I better get my ears tuned for the R142A, and that propulsion, for nearly 2 hrs, on 3 trips. I am going to hear it in my sleep, and when I wake up...........

I doubt they would. They would prevent you from falling off!

If those doors are going to be installed at the station, I hope they are not jacked up like the CBTC and be another epic technological fail. :)

I know, what I mean is you can't clearly see the train in the station with those doors, but I am sure it's not happening. You know the (MTA) hasn't gotten that far yet.

I THINK they are. I've seen platform screen door installation myself when I was riding the subway line 1 in Guangzhou, China. They were busy installing PSDs at some stations. The PSD installation is the same in Hong Kong. Based on these pictures, it does seem that they are installing the doors.

Wow, that is so fast. I hope I still can get some pix of the Old South Ferry Station before the first (1)/(9) train goes in that new station. :)!

 

*Mind me saying (9) train because it's me and I am having it my way!*

 

IT'S JUST THE (1) TRAIN.

Dude, he's hopeless... ever since the (9) left him, he's been unwilling to let go... :D:D

 

"Ohhh baby come back, any kind of fool could see..." :D
